3.48/5 rDev -7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Ruby red glow with orange hues around the top edges. Thick billowing bright white head that retains well.
Aroma: Citrusy hop notes up front followed by a considerable earthy/resiny scent typical of highly hopped Sierra Nevada brews. There is also a good dose of bready grain and caramel.
Taste: Opposite the aroma with bready caramel up front. Hop flavor imitates the nose with citrus, resin, and a hint of floral.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied on the tongue due to the residual caramel sugars with a dryer finish. Carbonation level is significant and adds to the dry perception.
Overall: A pretty good selection though not in Sierra Nevadas top 5. It is marketed as a Red IPA, however, it resembles an amber ale. Very well balanced with more aroma hops than bittering.
Serving type: bottle
