A: A clear copper color with a thin off-white head.
S: There's a nice toasted rye and citrusy pacific hop aroma.
T: A good mixture of sweet malt, spicy rye and citrus hop. The flavors blend well and complement one another. Just enough bitterness in the finish to balance everything out with a lingering citrus and toasted grain flavor.
M: Good all around mouthfeel. Medium body and a higher carbonation add to the spice.
O: One of my favorite styles, I haven't had a bad rye beer...yet. Recommend picking this up.

Pours a crimson copper with two fingers of white head.
Smells of pineapple, a bit of grapefruit, some caramel, and some spicy pine.
Pineapple, biitter pine, a bit of grapefruit and some caramel to balance it all with a bit of rye.
Medium bodied with light carbonation a drying, slick feel.
Very drinkable and paired well with some deep dish pizza; I would definitely make this a repeat purchase.

Pours a clear reddish amber with a huge light tan head that sticks to the glass impressively. Aromas of fresh pine cones, and a hint of pepper. Taste begins with some tart grain, followed by a smooth hint of vanilla, then some fresh bread. After that is a smooth resinous pinecone flavor that washes over. A quite clean finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall an excellent IPA. Not especially bitter, but with plenty of hop flavor.

Another solid offering from SN, bottled just under 3 weeks from consumption.
If you're looking to be blown away with all the beer craze as of late, you're in for a dissapointment. If you're a fan of SN, and enjoy their signature "profile" you're in for a treat.
A - solid dark copper in color, very active and great lacing but my only surprise was the lack of head that most all other SN brews produce. Still impressive nevertheless.
S - Grapefruit, bitter pine, rye of course, followed by the typical SN nose.
T - Much the same as the nose. Think a combination of the Pale Ale and Torpedo with a nice dose of Rye thrown into the mix. I do like the Grapefruit that compliments the rye in here reminding you that this is a nice west coast IPA as well. Yum!
M - Creamy, dry, bitter and light all at the same time. Very sessionable.
O - Just another solid SN brew. After geeking out on highly sought after brews and whales for 3-4 years now, I can honestly say that SN is UNDER-RATED. Yeah...I said it.
