Purchased from South Bay Drugs, thanks Joey.
Beautiful orange pour into a Sierra Nevada Pint Glass.
A smallish white head which leaves plenty of lacing.
A citrus perfume of scents mixed with some hops.
Delightfully bitter hoppy flavor which is melded with some nice sweet malt, but in the finish, the hops win out again. A bit more balanced than I expected given the description, but I'm really liking the way this tastes.
Nice amount of carbonation in the mouthfeel, not overly syrupy, and very little alcohol burn.
Not sure any beer with 10.5% ABV could get high marks for drinkability, but given the strength, the alcohol is very well masked. All I know is, I'm having a great time drinking this one.
I really like this beer. I was prepared for an impossibly over-the-top hoppy concoction, but this is very tasty and enjoyable beer. I will definitely be looking for this bad boy again.
