Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Usual SN presentation. Delighted to find a new SN beer that does NOT fit squarely into the “large hopped IPA” category! Hooray.
Classic pour with a high, if somewhat poorly retained head and little lace, on top of a great looking, golden body with tremendous clarity. Carbonation is perfect.
Malts hold the hop bitterness together nicely. A beer that perfectly showcases the crisp, sharp, bitter metallic notes of the hops in the style. Bitterness lingers nicely. Almost a slight medicinal aftertaste that fits well with the overall profile. A few grassy, organic notes which add to the feel of “fresh” in this beer.
Refreshing, sharp and clean, just about all you could ask from the flavor profile for a beer of this style.
Delightful, sharp and hits a drinkable note that few SN beers do for me – very pleased.
