3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Lightly hazed amber hue, decent head formation. Slightly soapy, lemony hop aroma, mildly spiced, mild caramel malt. Well spiced palate, hoppy bitterness throughout but never aggressive, body is mild with some light biscuity malts and a touch of sugarry sweetness. Easy drinker but a particularly stand out rye IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz beer. Pours a clear copper with a big frothy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is rye grains with some piney hops.
The flavor is some sweet bready malt with a big piney hop bitterness and rye spices. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, I like it. Itís a solid IPA and I like what the rye adds.

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.
