Draft. Poured a deep coppery amber with red highlights, nice lasting head. Aroma of piney hops, light citrus, faint nuttiness. Flavor is the same - mostly pine hops and slightly nutty malts. Not bad, but just didnít do much for me.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a deep amber color with a an off white head. Aroma is of hops, malts, citrus, and grain. Flavor is similar. Citrus hop with some ripe fruit and malts in the finish. Decent IPA here, but it seems pretty consistent with the beers that they but out. Nothing to WOW about it.

Deep amber with a tan head. Aroma is tropical and citrus hops, lightly sweet malts. Medium to full body. Flavor is full of citrus hops, tropical fruit, sweet brown sugar malt, mango. A nice drying bitter finish. Very nice. Made it to Bahrain three months after bottling and still tastes fine.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Dark red/amber pour. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and citrus hops. Taste is mild sweetness from the malts and a citrusy, bitter hop presence. Home run by Sierra Nevada!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a red-mahogany color with a very large, long lasting, off-white head. Hop dominated aroma is more herbal than flowery or fruity. Taste starts with a bit of tropical fruits and sweetness followed by some citrus and bitterness. Goes into some earthiness and herbal hoppiness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and hop character. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

The description of this beer is interesting because the "flip-side" of summery beers is celebration. This beer is more the flip-side of SNís usual offerings. It was overly strong on the hops but light on the alcohol content. I wouldnít ask for my money back because I finished the 12pk, but itís usually easier to drink a beer like this when itís boozier.

$6.50 for the 16 oz. serving ordered at the Grog last Wednesday evening. Juicy, but not overwhelmingly so. Candied citrus, spearmint, and Carared on the forefront, followed by pine bark, grapefruit zest, honey, and salted caramel. Medium bodied, with a thin layer of retention. It could be better; it be worse.
