There really is a reason that this beer is in every bar. It’s classic. Nice hope with the malt calming down the hops just a little.. smooth and medium through out.. always a good choice. When you find yourself at a bar with a small beer collection.

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.

Nice American style. Pale Ale, not much citrus flavour or aroma and seems a little light on the hoppy flavour too. But a nice bronze and cloudy colour too. Nice.
