4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pungent smells of herbal pine and sweet grapefruits. The taste is crisp, spicy grapefruit hops with an herbal piney bitterness on the back end of the taste. I also get sweet somewhat bready malts in there to balance the pungent grapefruit taste from the hops. It also balances the bitterness.
Its very flavorful and you can tell they use the whole cone hops to get that pungent hop flavor. Whole cone hops seem to really improve the flavor and bring the fruitiness well rounded taste out more than pellets. One of my favorite offerings from Sierra Nevada and definitely a go to IPA for me. Its easy to find, not too much money and definitely should satisfy any IPA fan.

This beer has a nice hop aroma but doesn't overpower. The beer is slightly cloudy with a nice head which clings to the outside of the glass. This beer tastes amazing it's bitter and sweet at the same time and leaves your pallet ready for more.
