A burnt reddish rye in the glass; standard head and lacing throughout.
Not gonna lie... let down by this one. The main impression is a muddied ale heavy in sierra nevada taste "factory taste"; a SNPA that is rather muddied and thick amongst heavier hoppage. The rye flavor does not come through spicy as it should or distinct... thought it would be a favorite since I love rye-ales, the bitterness and lack of hop flavor does not appease the IPA desire.
All in all, still it IS Sierra Nevada, so its drinkable and not rubbish, but this could have and should have been a winner.
