3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Safeway in Davis, CA. Pours a nice copper color with a thick copper head. This was just another typical Sierra brew for me. If you like piney hops then this is the beer for you. Good, just not my style.

Attractive deep copper pour with a full, frothy cream colored head. Nice nose and flavor of caramel, tangy rye malt, some grain and bitter hops. Decent mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Pint on tap pours a orange-red with a sticky head. Light citrus and rye spice on the nose. Flavor is lovely hop citrus and rye spice with a sweeter malt backbone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper, big fluffy off white head, great retention. Aroma is citrus hops, rye, mint, spice. Feels a bit thin on the palate. Sharp and bitter, with nice spicy and floral hops. Black pepper, orange, and rye bread. A solid, if not tame, rye IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a deep copper color with a thin white head, and some rather lively carbonation. Nose is of citric hops mostly. Taste is similar, and the rye kicks in at the end, and makes it just a little bit more bland. It is a good substitute over the malts which are used in similar IPAs and a nice change of pace, not quite as conventional though still rather good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. This is a seriously mediocre IPA, oversweet, with dull hops, and the rye adding nothing but an uncomfortable astringency. Really not much else to say than that.
