a: dark copper body. four full fingers of off white head. big thick frothy head lasts a while and leaves ring after ring as it dies down.

s: hops, pine mostly, with some citrus smells and a little malt.

t: pine leads off again then goes to citrus and back to pine. luckily this beer has a good strong malt presence to hold it together and keep it from being a mess.

m: thick oily feel to it. great carbonation. has a medium to full body. has a long finish to it, but not as bitter as i was expecting. not as dry on the finish either.

o: fantastic beer. my only dislike is it is pretty piney and i prefear citrus hops. other than that, go get one and enjoy!

A: Lots of carbonation. Nice lacing that lasts to the end.

S: Floral hops.

T: Citrus, grapefruit, pith, just a little malt to balance. But a hop bomb no doubt.

M: To the point of chewey.

O: This beer has no complex agenda. It just delivers a big blast of juicy fresh hops.

Well played, Sierra Nevada. Well played...a light brown opaque body, exceptional head, solid lacing with residue remaining on the side well after the pour, delicious juicy hop flavor, slightly citrusy and very bitter that just cleans the palate and leaves you wanting more. Great with quesadillas and rice & beans.
