Pours a clear, dark golden with a fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly and has a lot of carbonation. Spicy and floral hops dominate the nose and tongue, light caramel malt backbone is noticeable. Short, bitter finish to this one. A go to for me at the bar, it’s a hoppy session beer, but nothing incredible.

Can. Amber pour. Nice pine hop aroma. Good bitterness but could be maltier. This is decent but what one would expect from a macro attempt at a micro offering. There are better out there at lower prices.

This is my first Sierra Nevada, but hopefully there are better ones out there. I couldn't see the hype. Somewhat plain.

Stupenda. Questa pale ale è davvero fantastica. Caramellata il giuso da trovare l'equilibro coi luppoli. gli ingrendienti si fondono in un perfetto equilibrio.

Pours copper and clear. Aroma is malty. Taste is light malt, citrus and bitter with good carbonation.

One of the original and best pale ales around. This is the beer I compare other beers to. It is good during hot or cold weather and seems to be my go to brewski. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bottle on sale at the local supermarket. What a nice IPA is this. Amber colour. Nice carbonation. Only small head. A nice smell of fresh hops comes towards you. And the taste is well balanced between good bitterness and citrus. A favorite for me! Best drink it well chilled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Traz no aroma leve caramelo, pinho e cítrico. No sabor puxa mais para o pinho do que para o cítrico. o corpo e a carbonatação são médios. Ótima pale.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 Про это пиво нечего и говорить, типичный качественный, питкий эль с солодовым вкусом и лёгкой горчинкой, без изысков

Currently enjoying a can of this. In the past few days I've been on a Sierra Nevada kick just because they've been on sale at the liquor. I've had the pale ale, IPA, and the sidecar. This is probably my favorite of the three. The IPA is really bitter and the sidecar is very citrus heavy but this kind of lands somewhere in between and I think they did a good job with what it is. It's not extremely strong about 5.5 abv so I usually drink this at the end of a session or with stronger beer( I've got the IPA chilling in the freezer next). Good call though for about 2.50 a can you can't go wrong.
