look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: light hazy golden yellow in color with a nice 1" head that produces some thick lace.

Smell: floral and citrus tones are detectable by the nose.

Taste: caramel, grapefruit, pine, lemon zest, pear, and a floral bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp from start to finish. Some dryness arrives late.

Overall: another well balanced and nicely flavorful IPA from Sierra Nevada.

Piney and delicious. Finally a beer that is piney but not overly bitter. For all you citrus ipa drinkers hating on pine notes. . .please try. It's amazing

Pours a hazy gold color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of piney hops, slight floral hops, and citrus hops, slight resin, and slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is an elevated bitterness. Tastes of slight piney hops, citrus hops, hint of resin, sweet malt, and a hint of tea. Overall, fresh hop aroma, good appearance, simple, decent blend and body.

Pours a hazy, golden yellow with a 2 1/2 finger off white head that rises above my glass before receding to leave incredible thick and intricate lacing.

Aroma of spice and and citrus and flowery perfume and sweet malts and caramel with occasional, and fleeting, earthy funk.

Taste of citrus, sweet caramel malts and light bitter hops with floral undertones..

Medium full in body and crisp with light stickiness. Great retention and drying in the end.

The second beer out of four in a mixed 12 pack, and like the first, it did not disappoint. It's a great IPA, Rich in aroma and taste with great appearance and body.

Appearance: Cloudy golden, with a thick head of white foam. Attractive lace.

Aroma: Fruity citrus and tropical notes, pretty inviting already.

Taste: Punchy, with a bitter finish puts this into classic IPA territory. Overall a good IPA with easy drinkability and a nicely balanced palate.
