3.5/5 rDev -10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a cooper/ruby/orange translucent color with large beige head that fades quickly to a small fuzzy ring. It just looks thin in my pub glass.
S: strong citrus hops; slight earthy/grassy smell. Vague smells of rye and hay.
T:Very malty caramel-like flavors on the front with a moderate citrus(Mostly grapefruit, a little pineapple)hop in the middle, and a light amount of grassy rye. Pleasant dry finish of hops. I wish I found this to taste as good as it smells.
M: Light bodied; not watery or thin. Leave a general stickiness in your mouth that I just don't find pleasant. The dry finish of the hops is nice, but the stickiness is bothersome to me.
O: Not a bad rye beer, but I prefer stronger more "in your face rye" and a heavier body. The stickiness of this really detracts from the taste. I'll stick to the many other Sierra brews that I love.
