solid brew, just too pampered with all the advanced NEIPAs, IPA, Porters, Brown, etc. out there today.

12oz bottled 9/28/18 (41 days ago) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 6.7% ABV. The beer pours bright light to dark copper in color depending on lighting with sticky, prolific khaki head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is mild to medium with pine being the first thing along with floral, earthy & citrus notes. The taste is toasted caramel with citrus and pine intermingled with an earthy medium bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Not sweet or cloying, however the oils keep it from finishing dry. Overall, very good. Really nice old school west coast IPA.

Looks a deep copper color with a super creamy head. (whip cream like), Smell is muted. Earthy,fresh baguette. Taste is phenomenal. Mild taste of tea, berries, peppery. Feels almost perfect. This beer feels and tastes homemade by a very skilled brew master. Overall one of the best IPA's I have ever had. I strayed from this brewery for decades,I took it for granted it would always be there and I am glad it is. This brewing icon is still among the top 5 in my opinion.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazy amber/copper pour with 2.5 fingers of fluffy white head. Great sticky lacing.

S: Dank and hoppy.. herbal and piney. Smells like a Sierra Nevada/West Coast IPA.

T/F: Rich and malty... caramel and bread balanced out by a dank piney hop profile. Mild citrus, but herbs and pine dominate. Resinous and nutty. Sweet and bitter.. light bodied and stick on the tongue.

O: A pretty awesome IPA from Sierra Nevada. Similar but different from some of their other IPA's. More malt forward... but big time bitterness to balance. Really enjoyed this one, even if it's probably an ooch past its best by.
