Very nice brew from Sierra Nevada. I wasn't going to buy it, but a friend said to try it this year.

WHAT A HEAD!

The appearance, color and head were awesome. Great lacing.

The nose was very nice, with pronounced hops and a very nice perfume nose.

Mouthfeel and flavor are great. I had my 3rd one with some pretty good wings...my recipe...and it held it'd own. That alone is impressive.

Will buy a couple cases.

On tap at Stout's Pub in Falcon Heights , MN. Served in a 10 oz. glass.

A: Rich amber with dark ruby tones. Lacing is beautiful, thick, and lingers. Head is dense, white, and rich.

S: Some graniness (toasty) sits behind a big veil of floral hoppiness.

T: Yes! This is what an IPA (fresh hop!) should be. A lot of the citrus grapefruit but also a dank floral too. Piney tones work to compliment and weaves through the somewhat caramel/rye flavors of the malt/grist.

M: Somewhat rich and viscous. Hops have astringent drying quality that is a perfect compliment to the texture. Good.

D: I really liked this one. FInd it, seek it out. It is good.
