Poured into shaker a deep gold with lumpy white head and good lace. Slightly hazy. Aroma is malty but there is the light pine hops in the background. Light bodied and clean. Taste is malts, cereal, hay the pine of the hops growing in the finish with some bitter. I thought it had more flavors than some other session beers, lest lemon like and more malty.

Medium gold, thick white head with excellent retention and clingy lace. Active, bubbly carbonation. Signature whole cone Sierra Nevada hoppiness, with a pine-like freshness and touches of citrus. A hint of bready malt in the background.
The flavor has a great balance of dry, crackery malt with floral, piney hop resin. It’s like a hoppy German Pils that’s gone over the edge. I love how the mouthfeel still has enough thickness to carry a session brew like this as well. Finishes clean yet amazingly bitter.
This is an excellent session IPA. For comparison, I had this right after a Stone Go-To IPA and this one is far and away better. This beer just has a great balance, and is well-crafted all around. It has enough appeal to keep you coming back for more, which is the most essential part of a session brew. Top Notch!

Hazy, bright yellow body with a white head and decent lacing.Pine and grassy hops in the nose, but not very floral or pungent, with a hint of biscuit malt.Light bodied with a very dry mouth feel, prickly from the carbonation.Light malt and a drying bitterness start the palate with a wave of pine and grapefruit.Finishes with a lingering dryness and fading hops.Tasty beer but falls short of the hopping levels for even a "session IPA"

12FL OZ ($15.99 12pack) pretty good IPA, really expected a high IBU coming from Sierra but its pretty easy going. Very drinkable and has a pretty fluffy head to it that has a good balance with the beer itself.
