Very nice - integrates well with hops. This IPA has some citrus and apple flavours. Rye is prominent here. Finishes bitter. Good all around product here. Tap I can’t remember where.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2013
Tap at Norfolk. Pours clear ruby with a thick and sticky white head leaving unbelievable lacing the whole way down the pint glass. Looks exotic. A very good way to break Dry July. Nose shows heavy tropical hoppage with influence from dried fruits. Light heavier fruits in there with some sticky, sweet caramel notes. Sweet and sticky in the taste with heavy apricot and dried fruits. Tropical hops are a focus as it warms. Pretty good stuff. Typical Sierra Nevada beer. They have played to their strengths which they seem to always do but damn they do it well
