Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale remains, even in this tremendously saturated market of hops and pales, a go-to crusher for me. I'll go through a case while I'm mowing the lawn sometimes. I don't even have a very large lawn. It's just that good, and it takes me that long when I'm drunk.

Sierra Nevada has a winner with this one. It's got good balance of hops and malt and exceptional flavor. It has become my go to american pale ale.

The first and the worst from a world-class brewer. SN has so much more to offer - this should be retired to free up capacity for more Torpedo!
