Enjoyed in a duvel glass

Pours the perfect 'amber' with a 2cm beige tinged head.

Aromas of delicate citrus, rich caramel and toffee. Over time nutmeg, over-ripe apples and the fragrance of real Earl grey become apparent.

Caramel is the major player, in fact the beer gives the general impression of a small but hoppy brown ale. There's orange juice and a delicately peppery finish.

What a terrific IPA. So many breweries get away with throwing heaps of hops into any old beer, but Sierra Nevada really knows how brew truly balanced yet satisfying beer.
