Bottle: Clear amber color with a white head. Pleasant aroma of something fresh, rye, malts and not much hop in the aroma. However, the hops are readily present in the flavor with a malty finish. Different and refreshing.

Clear amber pour with quickly gone head. Nose is resiny hops. Malty middle and sticky bitter hops. Grainy bitter finish. Ryes are always kind of harsh/peppery but this delivers on the hops. Very good for the style.

Very well made Rye IPA. Fairly hoppy for how many IBUs they say are in this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 Pours clear amber with small amount of off white head. Aroma is slight grainy rye, with some piney hops. Taste is pretty complex, very malty with tons of strong spicy rye flavor. Very well balanced with a decent amount of piney and floral hops, that also give it a slight citrus flavor .Very spicy beer, almost makes my mouth tingle at first, also very dry, with a slightly oily mouth feel.

Poured a clear light amber color with a creamy white head. Spicy rye aroma. Good dose of hops. Unremarkable.

Pours a nice dark amber with a good head. Pretty light aroma with some rye and hops. Nice smooth palate with a medium body and a clean flavor.

A ton of floral hops in the aroma. Appearance is fantastic and unique - a mahogany red/brown color, generally clear, with an off-white bubbly head. Taste is dry and bitter, but also with a floral sweetness. Overall, another great beer from Sierra Nevada that I will look forward to each year. And I love the timing, as January and February are more or less a dead zone in terms of seasonal beers, while we are done with the winter and christmas beers, but waiting for the spring white ales and eventually the summer beers.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper color with an off-white head that stays on top. Some lacing down the glass. Aroma has a sweet smell along with some spicy hops. Medium body. Malt and hops are nicely balanced with a slightly dry finish. Very good, grab this one while it lasts.

Nose featured some clean earthy bready rye grains complemented by a light hopping, both citric and resiny. Flavor was resiny hopped, very dry as the rye must have fermented out quite a bit. Finish was a long lingering combination of rye bread type earthiness and a bitter hopping. I think this is nice...but not sure. Its so dry, but its growing on me. Deep copper color, medium head and nice lacing.
