look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Medium-amber color with a modest-sized light beige head that slowly faded. Good looking IPA

Smell: Piney hop aromas feature prominently and dominate the nose. nice nose but fairly subdued.

Taste: The pine aromas carry over and feature in the taste. The finish ends moderately dry with some spicy rye notes and the pine notes from the nose.

Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation. the rye definitely adds some fullness to the body that's not present in most IPAs

Overall: A Good IPA that, as typical for Sierra Nevada, is a good value.

Sierra N are always great tasting beers, and this is no exception.
Pours a deep orange with brown highlights, with a tight white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smell is pungent citrus and pine, with hints of dark fruit and bread. The rye is detectable I believe.

Taste is unique with malty bready notes throughout and a strong hop kick that leaves you wanting another sip. It's like a mix of brown sugar, rye, and citrus.

Feel is decent, I don't think I would want it more carbonated but it's on the thinner side.

This one met my expectations as usual so try it if you haven't.
