Bought 2 cases this year at Costco before Christmas. The following week they were sold out. This is my all time favorite treat. A hop heads delight and a Christmas tradition.

appearance: burnt orange with a head that never settles down

smell: fresh and lively

taste: the mother's milk for Sierra Nevada hop heads

mouthfeel: full and refreshing

overall: although I consider myself a novice - this is the only beer I go out my way to find. Its a special beer for a special time of year.

I've yet to find an ale that can match this flavor. Appearance was way more than I was even expecting perfect in color with plenty of lace. The smell is of nutty malts with plenty of hop notes! The taste is of smooth beautiful ale is great! I love this BEER!!
