I have to admit to passing this by quite a few times before finally picking up a six. I'm a card-carrying member of the Church of Celebration Ale, but most of Sierra Nevada's big releases have generally underwhelmed me. I was pretty impressed with the deft use of rye in this beer, when so many other rye beers fail to deliver on the promise. Poured a amber with an active head. Touch of sweetness balanced with firm hops bittering. The rye lends a distinctive peppery bite to the malt that is spot on.
