Bottled on 02.13.14.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 06.05.14.

A: See through red/amber body. 1 finger head.

S: Flower, citrus. Sweet smelling.

T: Flower, citrus, and malt dominate. Pine is subtle.

O: This is a balanced IPA. I don't care for IPAs with a large malt presence, though. Maybe the hops died a little because of the age, but this one was only ok for me.

By far my favorite Sierra Nevada. Bold hop flavor, perfect after taste.
