Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass.

The color is a hazy Orange with yellowish highlights. There is a finger and a half of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is earthy hops with a spicy pine aroma on the edges. There is a slight dankness here in the nose.

The taste has a nice sweetness at first with a citrus flavor that is mixed with tangerine and a slight hint of cherry. the bitterness comes out toward the back of this beer and pushed forward till there is bitterness building as it finishes.

The feel of this beer is lighter then most IPAs and is pretty drinkable. This beer is quite refreshing and a pleasure going down.

A: Amber/honey color. Pours with a thin white caps that dissipates slowly.

S: Pineapple, pine, hops and some citrus.

T: Slightly different than the nose. Citrus up front. Some pine flavors late.

M: Smooth up front with the right amount of carbonation - Slight dry feeling late.

O: Pretty solid brew. Could easily consume a few of these on a hot day.

Bottled - 12/17/13
