LOOK: Beautiful amber color

SMELL: Sedate. No dominant odor.

TASTE: bitter, but not too much.

Excellent beer. I feel like I walked into a micro brew and got an amber on draft. Nice early flavor, bitter, and a relatively clean finish. This is a winner.

Another solid ipa from Sierra Nevada. Simcoe, centennial and citra-how can you go wrong ? Pine, citrus, fruit with a lingering bitterness that coats the tongue and mouth. Aroma is tropical, quickly dissipating one finger wide soft white head, deep red color with moderate carbonation. The initial taste is citra, it's signature fruit taste followed by the resiny, pine and citrus of simcoe all complimented by the grapefruit of centennial. Clean yeast taste lingering bitterness a solid beer
