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.

From bottle. Huge fresh grassy/floral hop aroma with spicy rye notes and a touch of malty sweetness. Mild sulfury notes, but not a big detraction. Dark caramel clear with a bit of copper, topped with huge pillowy-foamy off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Starts juicy with apricot and grapefruit, floral-grassy hop character, and a bit of rye spicy grain character. Finish is big and hoppy, mildly sweet and alcoholic. A bit of carbonic acidity and fizzy burn, with a big bitter after. Not harsh, but lasting bitterness. Great flavor to this one.

Has a great presence with a strong nutty flavor and high malt. The hops are a delight with a grassy bitterness and strong ACV. Enjoy all the way

The aroma is malty and hoppy with grassy citrusy hops. The appearance is light brown amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a ton of rye taste. The palate is smooth. Overall a great beer.

Glass fills with copper nectar, topped by a creamy, rocky off-white crown of glorious foam. Citrus and pepper in the bready aroma. Literally bursting with flavor - solid barley malt support for the spicy rye and generous portion of citrus hops. This earthy ,rich concoction will command the drinkers undivided attention long after the lingering bitter finish. My favorite SN brew.

Sampled this at The Beer Dabbler. This is a great beer with a wonderful combination of rye, barley, and hoppy notes. Wonderful!

For some reason I just have never found a rye beer I like. Maybe I just dont like rye.

Bottle. Appearance is a clear orange-highlighted copper color with a solid inch of creamy beige head. In the nose, theres dank, earthy hops and citrus with a little bit of caramel sweetness. The taste has lots of sharp and bitter grapefruit and orange citrus along with the distinctly spicy and peppery grainy flavor from the rye. Also some pine and bready malt notes at the end. The finish is semi-dry and bitter with more citrus in the aftertaste. Another worthy addition to the Sierra Nevada lineup and a major upgrade over the Glissade Golden Bock.

Aroma is mild rye malts and grains. The flavor is spicy rye bread and hoppy with an undercurrent of citrus. Although the aroma was relatively subdued, this turned out to be a solid ale, the spiciness worked without being overpowering.

Bottle @ home. I guess Rye IPAs are the newest trend in the craft beer world, which is fine with me. Clear, caramel orange appearance with a creamy, tan head. Fairly spicy rye malty, bready, lightly citrusy, somewhat herbal hoppy aroma. Really a nice, rich, spicy rye flavor with some moderate piney hops, a mild citrusy element, and a tasty, toasty breadiness. Somewhat spicy rye aftertaste. Great beer!
