Appearance is rust orange, almost amber, very pretty in direct sunlight. Poured from a 12oz bottle.

Smell is very crisp and fresh. Piney hops are dominant and very inviting.

Definite pine, slight licorice, just a handful of orange peels. A very refreshing IPA.

Mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated and satisfyingly thick.

Overall just another great IPA from Sierra Nevada.
