Pours a deep copper color, finger of white head, nice lacing, very clear
Smell is not the most complex out there, but still nice, rye, bready malt, herbal hop notes, westcoast style pine and grapefruit, sweetness from the malt.
Taste is sweet caramel, spice from the rye is there but it is in the way of subtle pepper, grapefruit, bready malt, bittering pine
mouthfeel is medium, average carbonation, slight dry but at the same time a little sweet
Well its SN and its a IPA, not anything I would go to crazy over... But at 6.80 a 6 pack I certainly will grab a 6er every season. Good not great.

Smoothest IPA I've had, only because its a Rye . Its the second time I've bought it. Good introductory beer for someone looking to drink more than 4 beers. IPA's usually give you a not so pleasant after taste, but this one won't... Serve in a Tulip glass... Cheers!!!

Twelve ounce bottle poured into a nonic pint glass.
As I've come to expect from Sierra Nevada, this is great looking beer. A two-finger, foamy, frothy head forms and as it dissipates, leaves sticky lace all around the glass. The beer has a dark copper and amber color and small bits of carbonation flow upwards.
Smell-wise, the beer is sweet and grainy, and the rye figures prominently providing some spice. The hops are a bit muted, but the floral aroma is there.
More rye shows up on the tongue, as this beer is highly bread-like, spicy, and earthy. The hops come in at the finish, giving a dry bitter finish and some floral notes.
The beer is quite creamy and has thick mouthfeel. There's a good balance of sweet malts, rye spice and dry, hoppy bitterness. A very approachable and easy-drinking beer, yet one big on complexity.
I'm a fan. Sierra Nevada has another great beer with this. I'll drink plenty in the next few months.
