Pours a clear, copper/gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, citrus hops, alcohol, slight sweet malt, and slight grass. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, alcohol, hint of grass, and a hint of citrus. Overall, good appearance, feel, and blend.

Had this on draft at international tap house in chesterfield (Missouri). Agree with the grassy nose. I thought it was a clean, solid, ipa. One of Sierra Nevada's best offerrings in my opinion. In summary: If you like ipa's, give this a try! Cheers.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Clear, light yellow color, decent head. Smells a little grassy, hops. Flavor is more grassy hops, heavy alcohol. I was hoping this would be good after the DIPA tehy put into the best of beer camp mixed twelve pack last year. Not bad but not something I'd order again, average DIPA. Still, was nice to get a chance to try this.
