4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice coppery amber, very clear, no visible carbonation. A light beige, almost whipped head leaves thick lacing on the glass. The aroma is mild, but hoppy and sweet, almost like candy sugar. The flavor starts sweet and hoppy, then fills the mouth with smoky, oaky, and leathery flavors and finishes brightly with fruit, and an almost metallic after taste. The mouthfeel is creamy, with the small-bubble kind of carbonation that sticks to every crevice of the inside of your mouth. Itís surprisingly enjoyable and drinks faster than most beers with this much flavor.

Grapefruit and pine in the nose. A nice hoppy mouth feel along with earthiness. For a Rye, itís an excellent offering from Sierra Nevada.

Sierra Nevada loves darker hops. Thatís the only way I can describe it. They donít do citrus, they do pine, smoke, and earth. And itís great. This beer sticks to that strategy. Dark, smokey, piney hops... dry, bitter rye, and a clean, yet still bitter and hoppy finish. Itís very flavorful, and very drinkable. I might like it more than Torpedo.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The nose has some notes of leather and caramel followed by some citrus. The Appearance a nice copper color with with a two finger fluffy head the laces to the bottom of the glass. The taste is citrus more orange than grapefruit. The carbonation rushes up front and a dryness lingers at the back. This is a very good beer, that I highly suggest folks try.

Hoppy aroma made me hopefully. Nice amber with a reasonable frothy head. Unfortunately (for me ) the aroma is lost to the unbalanced bitterness. In all fairness Iím not a large IPA fan, but the citrus and pepper subtleties seem too far lost to really enjoy. Decent mouthfeel with an astringent aftertaste that sticks with you just a little too long.
