4.13/5 rDev +2.2%
The beer is a nice orange gold color with a lovely head that lingers.
The aroma is hoppy and piney with a little hint of caramel hop.
The flavor is at first sweet with some caramel hints and finishes with a nice hop bitter bite.
The mouthfeel is medium and beer is well bodied.
Overall this is a wonderful session beer. It is refreshing and not to radical in any one direction.

Faint citrus hop taste upfront followed by a sweet, refreshing malt and the hops come back around for the finish to complete the cycle. The malts are top notch and makes the beer. Incredibly well balanced, drinkable and well done. A classic American Pale Ale

This is a classic American Micro-Brew. This ale was poured from the classic brown 12oz bottle into a glass.
A - The ale poured a golden amber color, with a thin head of white foam. Lots of carbonation and lacing.
S - Hoppy and fruity with hints of flowers.
T - Crisp, light and refreshing with lots of hoppy punch in the finish.
MF/D - Clean and refreshing taste. Lots of bubbles and pleanty of dry flavor. A classic American Pale Ale. One of the best out there. If you haven't tried this classic, get out there and find one.

All aboard for the hops flavor train!
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is exuding floral hops form the nose, from the palate, and after taste, and maybe into the after life.
Pours a golden amber from a 12oz bottle. Carbonation is fair, and leaves one to wonder what it would be like if the cap weren't a twist off.
The next time I drink this Beer, Im going to do a roast duck with an orange sauce, the two should pair up eminently.
Aromatics abound from Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and you will be bound to try this marvelous brew again.

This is definitely one of the classic american ales on the market, and I was glad to find a six-pack hidden on the shelf of my local supermarket. The pour revealed a nice amber/dark golden color. There was a thin head that disappeared after about a minute, but a nice lace remained until the last sip. The smell was a crisp, sharp one with some nice fruity(citrus??) hops. The first taste revealed more of those hops and a pleasant bitter taste that receded quickly and left a nice dry aftertaste. Overall a very good brew that I would recommend to anyone!
