A - Pours a bright amber with reddish hue, nice puffy 1.5 finger head that leaves plenty of lacing along the sides.

S - Nose full of piney, evergreen hops with a bit of grapefruit in the background. A bit of honey provides a little bit of sweetness, but mostly just a ton of piney hops

T - The hops are actually bit more subdued than I expected. Hops are very, very piney. A little bit of honey sweetness, a decent amount of maltyness brings up the rear.

M - Nice and smooth, hops don't particularly dry the mouth, very good mouthfeel.

Overall - I thought it was good, not great. The taste was a tad underwhelming, but it was good. Another good offering from Sierra Nevada.
