I had this on draft at the brewery in Mills River. Pours a pale yellow with a bright white head. I can only describe the nose as skunky with a hint of lemon. The flavor consisted of skunky and citrussy (lemon) hops and some malt to balance it out. The flavor reminded me of a hopped up Heineken/skunked Corona. The mouthfeel was thin for the style. This was a one and done for me. I was disappointed in this beer-a rare miss in my opinion from Sierra Nevada.

Appearance: orange in color with a 1" head that falls to a spotty surface covering.

Smell: floral hops and some citrus rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, mild grapefruit, some lemon zest, a bit of earthiness along with floral notes.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish. Mild dry finish.

Overall: this was a very easy drinking IPA and was refreshing also. Nice flavor profile.

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger thick/creamy white head, which leaves some thick/creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt note, lots of citrusy. The taste is hoppy, very slight maltyness, lots of citrus. Medium body, to me this is alittle bit to hot. Overall, it's a tasty brew.

Bottle from Albertsons. Pours out a hazy orange golden with nice thick, fluffy head. Nose brings to mind some musty malts, while the wild hops bring lots of mild citrus flavor to the brew. Finish is a bit weak, mildly bitter and dry, but this one is all about the flavor .
