F - Thick, really covers the tounge
O - Born on 9-22-15, not too impressed

I was fortunate enough to get 24 bottles of this awesome seasonal treat. I cherished each and every beer I opened. I drove over 150 miles round trip to purchase this fabulous beverage. I currently live in Mississippi on the gulf coast, and have to travel to Louisiana to get the diversity of beers I crave. I am from Las Vegas,NV and took it for granted that variety was the norm, not so. I admit that I may not be as sophisticated as some in describing smell or taste, but I do know what I like. I look forward to finding this seasonal offering every year.

24 fl.oz. bottle. Bottled on 2015-04-15.

A: Dark amber. A little bit hazy. There was a lot of foam, and it retained for a while.
S: As an IPA, the aroma is unexpectedly being malts oriented, mixed with some citrus (tangerine).
T: Moderate citrus (tangerine) and bitterness. Semi-dry. A little toasted flavor. Dry finish.
M: Medium bodied and creamy.
O: Unfortunately I can't drink it fresh. The hops aroma might fade out. But it's still a delicious IPA.

Dark copper pour with 2 finger foamy head.

Smelled of decent piney hops. Small amount of malts

Average piney-hop taste. Malt flavors do not come through very well.

medium bodied, with mild carbonation.

Not an offering from Sierra Nevada that I would drink again.

Bottled. Floral hop smell at opening but loses aroma in glass. Finger and a half of head that doesn't disapate. Amber and clear in color. Mild bitter in taste and hop bite sticks to the tongue. Carmel hit on the front end and rounded hop and malt taste in the back end. Nice beer
