A – It’s a little hazy, reddish brown. 1 finger, yellowish tan head with a little lacing.
S – The aroma is nice. It has a loaded pale ale aroma, celebration is really present. juiciness with a bit of west coast pale ale. A little bit of oak.
T – ooh yeah. totally getting the fresh hop tastes of this. really good. really good overall. a light bitterness with an overly oaked smokey maple syrup flavor with birch wood and even a bit of cedar. I’m enjoying the overall flavor here. just nice.
M – Finish is bitter, thick, lingering
O – This is nice. classic Sierra nevada. I think it was brave to throw in the pale ale aspect but drink it fresh!
