Poured into a pub glass.

A: Pours color with two fingers of head which dissipates slowly leaving a good amount of lacing

S: Hops, pale malt, slight aroma of tropical fruit

T: Wonderful taste of pale malt, hops, grapefruit, and citrus. Strong flavor without being extremely bitter. Very complex and well balanced.

M: Amazing strong mouthfeel one would expect from Sierra Nevada.

O: I absolutely live this beer. One of the best pale ales out there. Truly amazing.
