3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shaker pint draft at Martin City Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is mostly clear copper burgundy with a smallish off white head. The aroma is fresh and clean - floral citrus hops and a soft rye. Decent amount of cereal malt present in there as well. The taste is the nose, nice balance between the citrus hope, the rye and the cereal grain malt. The malt has a lot more sweetness than the nose suggested. The rye gives it a nice spiciness, pepper, but not quite that sharp. The palate is light to medium bodied, active full carbonation and a dry, even slightly bitter finish. The finish thins out a bit as well. Nice enough, easy drinking beer.

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.

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.

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.
