Its not "interesting" its not "complex" but it is definately bitter. My favorite beer of all time when I just want a "beer." Sure, I love my belgians, stouts and barleywines, but this beer just screams cascade, balance and simplicity.

Hands down the best beer out there. I actually didnít care for the "bite" after my first bottle, but since then, I will take a Sierra Nevada any time. Canít say enough. Color, taste, aroma, it has it all. The only problem I have ever had, is the bottle strength. They seem to break very easy and then I waste a bottle of the greatest Beer ever.

This is the best American Pale Ale ever made. It is consistent year after year. The way it is bottle conditioned makes it extra special. This is an ale that really grows on you. Definitely the standard of American Pale Ales!

In my NOT SO HUMBLE opinion, S.N. Pale Ale is THE BEST AMERICAN ALE today! Hoppy, Just the right bite, and a wonderful aftertaste. The head seems to hang around a while which is nice! I LOVE THIS ALE!

This beer is absolutely delightful. The hoppy aroma and flavor are out of this world, and make a body glad to be alive.
