Sampled on 3/3/2012. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head. The aroma is bready, fruity, caramel and spicy. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are grapefruity, floral and piney. Nice carbonation. The malts, hops and rye mix well together in this beer. There is a nice spiciness to go with the medium bitterness hops. Very drinkable IPA. Would be a good session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Once again a great job by Sierra Nevada. This IPA was crisp and bready, having a subtle dry finish that fulfilled the hop lover palate. Cheers!

There is so much going on here. Just a pretty copper pour to a huge head that settles nicely. The scent is a bit northern pine and a touch of apple. The taste is a pleasant combination of light to middle bitterness while the carbonation dances over the tongue. A faintly bitter finish turns dry and delightful. Overall, a great variation on the IPA formula.

Tastes a little different/something new each time i open a new bottle. One of the better SN beers Ive had from them in a while..

IMO...Laid back for a rye. Not as spicey as I like. Subtle aroma. Nice head and hoppy flavor.

Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 12 oz. bottle- Pours dark autumn amber with an off white to almost creamy tan head. Aroma is bready, peppery spice, some hops, but not as much as I was expecting. The taste is wow, the first thing to come to mind is complex, very hoppy, but not all that bitter, bready from the rye obviously, pepper is there but more so in the aroma. Body is moderately full, carbonation is spot on. Great beer, a beer made with rye that I can actually back up, I usually don’t care for them.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/copper with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of rye spiciness, citrusy hops characteristic of Sierra Nevada, and some caramel malts. All of the flavors strong. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Bottle. Pours a deep copper color with pretty decent off-white head and some thin lacing. Aroma is of hops and spicy rye. Taste is bitter piney hops, a strong rye character, and maybe some pepper. Overall a nice beer.
