UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 A pretty good beer. Has exceptionally nice flavor given its transparency and thin body. Perfect blend of hops and subtle honey sweetness. But not nearly enough flavor to be remarkable.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Rerate: After I've downed a couple hundred of these in the past few years, it really grows on ya. I'd love to describe this beer to you, but chances are you've already had it. A splendor of beer with perfect balance and just the right amount of hops for anyone.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 You donít realize how good this APA is until you drink it. Itís aroma is not overpowering and if put side by side looks just like any other APA. Nice and hoppy.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 Canít say anything that hasnít already been said. This is definitely a desert island beer. Sadly, Iíve ended up with a couple poorly handled 12-packs lately. I havenít had a GOOD one in far too long.

Just about the best pale ale ever made. The distinctive hoppy taste is truly something to marvel at. Very smooth, how could you not like it?

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 One of the best of the Sierra Nevada line and a great go-to tap beer. Perfect amount of bitterness, very smooth and an addictive flavor that improves as the beer leaves your glass. Slight citrus notes in the malt but not overly malty, finish is crisp and hoppy, a perfect happy medium between a pale ale and an IPA if you ask me. Best easy-to-locate beer on the planet, my fridge is never without some.
