look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Good straw yellow coloration, nice and clear with decent lacing that followed down the glass.

S - Hops are present, along with a slight bit of malty character. Citrusy notes are also present here.

T - Nice floral hops, backed with a good malty taste. Bready in the aftertaste with nice grainy taste

M - Easy mouthfeel with nice level of carbonation

D - Nice easily sessionable beer, and a fine offering from Sierra Nevada. Not their best (Celebration IMO) but certainly a nicely crafted beer.
