BOD 141/14. Pours medium amber with a slight haze. Normal head, lacing and retention. Nice nose of caramel sweetness over citrus and pine notes with a touch of spice. Light medium body, with a texture that borders upon creamy. Normal carbonation level with light effervescence on the finish. Balanced flavor profile with a bit of complexity. It begins with pine and citrus hop flavor which flows into caramel. As the caramel sweetness fades, the rye asserts itself. The finish is somewhat sharp with the rye and hop bitterness lingering. A solid offering, but not in the league of GL's Rye of the Tiger or Founder's Red's Rye.

Happy, Happy, Happy. This is another great beer from Sierra Nevada. Pours a nice off brown color with a good head. The taste is great with hops, pine and some citrus together. This beer has the right amount of sweetness to balance everything out properly. The finish is of bitter hops, but is very pleasant and definitely a go to beer. I like it !!
