A. Like all their beers this is perfectly carbonated and a lovely dark Amber colour.
S. Sweet piney smell but not as pronounced as an ipa. Hint of almonds and hay
T. This is my first 'ryepa'. Drunk from a half pint glass and first impressions were excellent. Definate taste of rye, malty biscuit, herbs and sweet pine. Noticed within five minutes though, that the taste lost a lot of it's complexity and the alcohol taste became a little overpowering which I was surprised with as this is only 6.6 abv.
M. A little to heavy for me. Felt the alcohol taste ruined this beer for me a little and ended up tasting like a stronger version of their excellent pale ale.
O. Definatley an interesting beer and has done enough to make me try some other rye ipas, but felt overall this beer was a little unbalanced, alcohol taste a little overbearing. I will probably try thus beer again at some point as sierras beers are more affordable than a lot of USA to UK imports but wouldnt go out of my way to buy it over some of their other excellent beers

Appearance is a beautiful red amber that is clear with a white head, its remnants lingers til the end
Citrusy hops in the nose also get some sweetness, some sense of the rye
Tasty brew throughout the sip, sweet then bitter piney hoppy with a dry finish that lingers. Caramel sweetness, flowery, peppery. The bitter element here is especially enjoyable. The rye is more present as it warms up.
Mouthfeel is full and good with dry spicy finish, good hoppy brew.
