4.58/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz can sent from SierraNevallagash dated 1/10/19 into snowman chalice.

Juicy juicy color with blondes and deep amber shades with a tall creamy head of 2 fingers that recedes slowly.

This beer on the nose does a phenomenal job of meshing west coast IPA (caramel malts, stiff pine, fresh grass, onion) with east coast new school IPA (mango juice, pineapple, peach sorbet, and tangerine). Just beautiful.

WHOA. This beer explodes with flavor. I have a burning desire to speak with the brewmaster. This is art right here. Stringy pineapple, polite grapefruit juice, and peach sherbet meets dank herbs, tangerine, and fresh pine. A slight banana/clove note wraps it all up. Slight hop fading and there's some holes where the flavor would be but I'm not even distracted in the slightest - this beer is still freaking tasty at 2.5 months.

Feel is crisp and creamy, with slight clinging resins. Fair to moderate alcohol heat but it doesn't get in the way. I honestly wouldn't change much about the feel (or anything, really). Nice and juicy.

Overall, I may be the only one psyched about this beer, but this is absolutely nuts. Carbonated artwork, this one.

4/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Lots of citrus (in particular lots of orange) up front along with some light maltiness and some floral notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and floral hop notes and then picks up some light maltiness and earthiness. Finishes with lingering citrus and floral notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid DIPA that is on the easier side to drink. Well balanced. Get some
