3.53/5 rDev -12.6%
bottle. pours dark yellow with a solid white head. grassy and slight citrus aroma. taste is very bitter lots of fresh cut grass and some sweet sugar malt. had this on tap at the clarkston union and cant believe i have not rated it yet as it is a very true to style beer. it may not have the hop wallop that zombie dust has but the malt that is there plays a very nice roll in balancing out the hops.

3.85/5 rDev -4.7%
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 3, 2013.
The pour is a good looking medium amber-copper with a full off-white head that lingers for a time.
The aroma is grainy and bready with a dash of earthy hops that smell clean and crisp.
The body falls into the medium range and the texture is generally smooth.
As far as the taste there is a quick biscuit and grainy maltiness but then the hops explode but simmer down to a moderate dry finish. By today's standards this is a pretty basic pale ale but one cannot neglect Sierra Nevada's role in the history of the craft beer movement. I bet this was wonderful in the 1970's to early 1980's.
