We were in search of something fantastic. Something juicy, something hazy, something ripe with notes of mango, melon and citrus. So we said, "Reason be damned," and filled our kettles with five hop varieties and loads of malt, oats and wheat. Some may call that absurd. We call it absurdly fantastic.

De Labirratorium. En copa Teku. Jugando a Fortnite y Larry Wet Dreams. No está mal. Presenta el perfil maltoso que uno asocia a sierra nevada aunque resulta algo metálica y le falta algo de punch que anime a quererla repetir

3 months from canning. Looks good in the glass. Foamy white head, color is a golden orange. Nose brings pineapple, peaches, maybe some papaya. Taste is tropical fruit, white bread, and booze. Medium mouthfeel, and bites and fights you going down. As it warms it becomes more citrusy but with a harder alcohol presence. This one's a sipper and I probably would not purchase again. Not very balanced or memorable.

Very pleasant not over powering "Citrus" IPA, easy to drink and to forget it is 8%. Packed at Costco with Torpedo and 3 others, a great flavor fest. I would definitely recommend trying this one if you like Sierra Nevada's other offerings.

Part of a variety 24-pack $28.99 Costco
79 days old
Smell of oranges, citrus
Hazy golden-orange color
Heavy, creamy mouthfeel
Medium-high carbonation
Taste of oranges, tangerines, citrus flavors. Creamy texture reminds me of melted ice cream in a slush float. Alcohol hidden well. Light bitterness finish.
Overall good for the style. Easy drinking, which makes it dangerous with the high ABV.

It smells bright, like mango and pineapple with a sweet maltiness that's there the whole time.

The malt is the forward flavor but then the fruit is there too. A certain creamy flavor kind of drifts and mixes with the rest.

The mouthfeel is smooth and there's mild carbonation. The finish is bitter with a touch of sweetness and it draws out for a while.

It's a great hazy IPA. I give it a 5.3 out of 6.
