From the 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.
A- Dark amber body that approaches brown in color, a frothy, sticky head and lace that takes its time in receding. Mostly opaque and there aren't any signs of carbonation visible.
S- Well, it smells like a big, fruity, piney IPA. Plus it has the sweet floral aroma of practically every Sierra beer. I get a ton of fresh orange. Maybe some grassy aspects. Some resinous spice. I don't detect much malt, believe it or not.
T- There's the malt, much more present on the tongue. It's got good doses of rye bread, caramel and floral sweetness, and very little of the potent hop profile from the nose. There are hints of pine though.
M- Thick and malty mostly, but with a bit of bitterness and dry yeastiness towards the finish.
Another good one from Sierra Nevada. Call it a hopped-up amber or Red IPA, but either way it's enjoyable.
