Hands down the best pale ale that is available nationwide. This beer is a great experience to drink. While it is a nice beer that is full of flavor, its not too filling to enjoy with a meal or with other drinks.

Slightly cloudy amber color with a tinge of orange. Fizzy medium head. Aroma was floral hops and spicy citrus. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Flavor is the same as the nose but with the hops bitterness making itself known, especially in the finish. Very good even if you do prefer darker beers.

Bottle. Amber colour with hoppy nose, good smooth flavour wit lot of hop and sweetish fruit, bit sherberty. Fruits are citrus and berry. Lasting very hoppy finish. First bottle was delicious, but I had 2 more during the evening and I thought that it became a bit too sweet and slightly cloying

Thank you sierra for this pale ale! This really makes for an excellent, easy-drinking ale that doesnt warp the palate after a couple. Medium body plus 1 is the perfect ratio and this hoppy, floral sweetened ale achieves it. I went to a coors party, but they called and asked if I would like something else, I said get any pale ale if you can - they picked a good one!

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2005 I like darker beers, but if I ever change my mind about that it will be because of this pale ale. Once again Sierra Nevada makes an amazing beer.

Bottle. Poured a murky golden with a small white head. Nose and flavor is very hoppy and slighty citrus with small hints of spice mixed in. Enjoyable.

A great American Pale Ale. I really love this and have tried to copy it homebrewing numerous times. My standard at establishments that dont have world class brew (not that this isnt world class). Nice hoppyness in the aroma and taste, have to love the grapefuityness of the Cascade and a nice malt bill.

Nice dark golden color with good head and lacing. Aroma is nice but not overpowering. Flavor is bitter with a hint of sweetness. Palate lingers, but is not overwhelming. Very nice brew.
