The most disappointing Sierra Nevada offering I've had yet...and I enjoy their Pale Ale several times a week (and I enjoy red ales a lot).

Pretty much just no taste...well no taste that is good or reminiscent of a red ale/red IPA anyways. Tastes like your most basic beer.
I am not ashamed to say I drank about half and then drain poured the rest of the bottle. Luckily I only picked up one bottle out of a mix-a-six.
