This is so good. Both the smell and the taste are fairly equally matched. Both have honey, floral, citrus, and pine. The taste has a nice small bitter kick at the end, but not the usual hop bitter. The head has nice retention as well. It's a great and different offering. I would love to have it again.

I love everything I have had from Sierra Nevada but, this just missed for me... I even bought another 8 oz pour the next day just to try to make sure... Sorry but I know they can do better

Poured from a 24 oz bottle (bottle date 11/11/14) into std pint glass. Slightly hazy deep straw color (actually crystal clear with fine suspended particulates) with a nice one inch head that dissipated. Nice lacing. The first aroma struck me like a fresh, yet understated, marijuana smell. My wife picked up some onion mixed with the light floral hops. The taste was stronger than the aroma and was a nice balance of the malt and a melony floral hop note. Not overpowering, Not too bitter and easy to drink. Nice balanced mouthfeel. Overall a nice, but not assertive beer. If you are a real hop-head, this will underwhelm. Sierra Nevada always does a nice job with their wet hop ales. This uses an unfamiliar wild hop but is very nice. Give it a try if you can find it.
