Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest

Another winner from the good folks at Sierra Nevada.  Using hops from New Zealand, the Southern Hemisphere Harvest is a big citrus and pine hop bomb, more of a sipping IPA rather than a chugging beer.  To be honest, the flavor is so intense that finishing the bottle by myself was not quite challenging, but not exactly easy either.  The fluffy two fingered head stuck around to the bottom of the glass, and the creamy mouthfeel and bubbly carbonation helped bring out the malty aftertaste.  It only clocks in at 6.7 % ABV.  Given the intense flavors, that ABV might have been higher.  I am giving this an 8/10.
