Look...if you can't give this beer its props, stop reviewing. This beer is the original groundbreaker of microbrews and continues to be the most solid choice you can make... anytime. Heineken and Corona can suck it...I will kiss anyone right on the mouth like Lydia Loveless who brings this classic to my party. Sierra for President!

Drank from a can on a muggy summer evening.

Slightly hoppy and Easy drinking IPA. Smell the hops. First taste is slight hops and bitterness. Finishes to sweet and dry. Probably first IPA I ever had 20 years ago and still is a great intro to bolder flavor beers.
