I don't think Sierra Nevada can make a bad beer. This one pours a beautiful pale orange with a 2 finger off white head. The lacing is extensive, lasting, and elaborate. The nose is wheat, oranges, apples and honey. Mouthfeel is full with not huge amounts of carbonation. Taste is excellent. The front end is a sweet satisfying honey perfectly balanced with grapefruity hops on the finish. I so love this beer. Buy some today!!!

Wow. Very hoppy and yet not overwhelming the pallet like Hopslam did. This amber colored beer has a wonderful hoppy aroma with a hint of pine and spice. This is my personal favorite Sierra Nevada because I can usually find it for the same price as their regular pale ale.
