3.75/5 rDev -0.8%
Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a deep, crystal clear, ruby-amber coloring, with a thin, sparse, off-white head. Aromas of roasted caramel, toasted grains, tart grapefruit notes, and subtle hops resin notes. Flavors are more richly sweet forward, with roasted caramel and hints of toffee, followed quickly by a citrus blast of grapefruit and tangerine, with a solid dose of hops bitterness, some piney highlights, resinous and dank, and a cracker backbone. Pretty decently balanced palate, on a light, crisp body. The aftertaste is bittersweet, with a tart highlight throughout. Smooth, slightly dry, fairly clean finish. Subtle lingering tart and bitter feel on the taste buds. Solid brew.

3.85/5 rDev +1.9%
A = Reddish amber color, good carbonation, head fades fast with no lacing.
S = Sappy pine, rust on your fingers, a touch of citrus.
T = Very crisp with lots of pine, not much lingering.
M = Not heavy, but rather refreshing.
O = Not my favorite Sierra Nevada offering, but certainly tasty. Enjoyable seasonal IPA, but it doesn't top the list for me.
