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.

Like Mike Trout batting in the bottom of the 9th, this thang is clutch. Sexy, delicate hops meet wonderful floral notes like a virgin picking Lillie’s by Moonlight.

Yep!

2017 Edition bought from Systembolaget in Sweden.

Clear, amber, almost red, beer with a three finger high beige, fluffy head.

Nose of orange, apple, grass, flowers, caramel and dried fruit.
Taste of pine, dried fruit, apricot, orange cest, grapefruit, honey and grass.
A great, medium-sweet, malty taste. Medium body and carbonation. Bitter ending.

I want more of this! Great!

Had the chance to drink it fresh at Sierra Nevada in Asheville this past Wednesday, super tasty! Seems like the "wet hop" adds a distinctive edge to the taste, nice.
