4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled September 27, 2012.
Appearance: The body is a very nicely hued red/mahogany, great for the season, the slightly hazy body shows off some carbonation and there’s a medium sized very dense and frothy tan head that has lots of lacing and excellent retention.
Aroma: There’s a nice citrus and grassy hop profile and a bready backing, nice aroma here. It reminds me of baking while it’s snowing out.
Taste: The intro is a bit bland, maybe bready, spicey hop flavors make their way towards the mid-taste and become a nice piney bitterness by the finish. The bitterness is moderate at best and only lingers a second.
Palate: Medium bodied with a bready feel to it, nice feel to it.
Overall: Great job Sierra Nevada, excellent all-around. I just wish this were a bit fresher, but it just hit markets so it isn’t possible for us who have to buy retail. I like how it has ended up though.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. 2015 version, in other words, way too old... Pours close to clear copper. Medium sized, slightly orange head. Malt, orange and some metallic nose. Malt, herbs, some grapefruit, resin and pine flavour. Bitter. Medium, oily body, soft carbonation. Sadly, too old.
