Had on tap at Blind Tiger and I can say it is the perfect lunch beer (grilled cheese, tomato soup).
Appearance is really great. Lots of head, lovely lacing, even solid legs. Head remains on top throughout. Smell is sorta nondescript for all the… spices. 🙂 Still some hop notes, grapefruity, malts
come out too. Taste is good. Not a hop bomb, but definitely and IPA. Complex malts.
It’s highly drinkable if you’re eating Murray’s cheeses melted on your tongue, and it feels full while you do it.
A win for Sierra Nevada.
