I am generally a big fan of rye beers, so when I saw this at the store today, I had to pick up a sixer of this. Pours clear and amber in color with a foamy, rocky white head with shades of caramel. Very nice lacing and the head retention is pretty nice as well.
Aromas are great. Certainly the spicy rye comes through and that is followed by citrus and floral hops. Sweet maltiness and caramel add some complexity to the aroma. I enjoy the slight musty smell this one presents also.
One thing about Sierra Nevada is they sure as hell know how to make some great IPAs. Flavor is packed with a spicy punch and bitterness that lingers on the palate just long enough. Finishes dry after about 30 seconds leaving the tongue unsatisfied and slaking for more nectar. Floral in character with a very nice citrus presence, but the rose hips seem to be dominating here, and I like it.
Another great beer from Sierra Nevada. Without a doubt, these guys make the best beer for the price in the world. Spicy, floral, slightly tangy, medium body, and delicious!
