Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.
A: Clear, medium amber color featuring reddish highlights, with one finger of persistent rocky off-white foam head. Heavy lacing remains.
S: Very fragrant grapefruit and orange citrus, fresh spicy herbs, honey, and darker fermented grain.
T: Begins dry, with toasted pale malt and spicy-citrus hop flavors in balance. Flavors turn more sweet in the middle, with more savory herbs making up the hop profile. Dryness returns in the acidic, moderately bitter finish.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, versatile on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D: This Special Edition pale ale shows more snap and urgency than Sierra Nevada's standard, without compromising the balance and overall character that are their hallmarks. Sensory qualities found here are very similar to, if not more intense than, those of the Sierra Nevada estate ale--and at half the price per bottle, this is the better choice to make.
