Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, from a 12 pk. Could not find best by/born on date. This is my second time trying this beer. I did not like the beer the first time, so I held out on reviewing so I could give it another chance. I am glad I did.

The beer pours the typical clear amber color of an IPA, but maybe slightly darker than the norm. In the smell, I get a good mix of citrus and piney hops. Smells like a well-balanced IPA.

Plenty of hops as promised, but more of the piney bitter hops than the citrusy hops. Still a very drinkable above average IPA that is probably more hoppy than the average IPA too, and you can't beat the price that Sierra Nevada sells this for.
