Poured into a DFH IPA glass. Deep ruby color with a two finger off-white head. Gorgeous and perfect for an early fall beverage.
Fresh hop smell bursts into the sinuses; very floral. Smells delicious.
Sweet malt body holds up a wonderful composition of hop flavors. Really nice citrus, pineapple, and a bit of resin notes. A touch of spice (rye?) lingers on the palate. Mild astringency. Clean finish. A touch more than medium-bodied. The balance to this is ridiculous and lends for very easy drinking.
I'm having mine with a blue cheese laced salad, followed by veggie pizza on homemade crust. I don't think I'll have much to complain about tonight.
Less than $9 for a six pack makes this a steal. Once again, Sierra Nevada puts out a very solid beer that has wide distribution. Magical. Highly recommended.
