I had the opportunity to try this beer on tap at Catch 22 in Merrillville, IN. Sierra Nevada definitely surprised me with this one. This beer gives good head and it has an "in your face"-smooth flavor with a small craft feel. Keep it up Sierra Nevada!

Deep copper, it has a medium big pale tan head, slowly shrinking to foamy ring and wisps, some nice lace.

Aroma is nice, rich resin, grapefruit, caramelised pine and grapefruit, spicy grain, hint of dried fruit & fruit candy.

Taste is spicy dried fruit & fruit candy up front, deep earthy bread character, lightly leaning to spicy-earthy bitterness with hint of citrus at finish. Light mineral throughout, but a bit too spicy-bitter, esp. in finish and with food, with a fusel alcoholic quality, all making it a bit rough and harsh despite some good elements.
