VsXsV (4389) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear, amber liquid with medium, foamy off-white head. Quite rustic, hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, pepper/spice, citrus, caramel, cereal malt, tropical fruit and pine. Pleasant aroma. Taste is dry and medium bitter with a peppery, citrusy finish. Some fresh hops. Really drinkable. Medium bodied with good carbonation and maybe a bit watery mouthfeel. Nice thirst quencher now when it starts to get warmer. Good balance between hops and rye.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
bottle. this beer is without ruths. watermelon and starchy burnt potato nose with dried leaves and bread crumb toaster notes. resinous, chewy, syrupy body with the same fizzy carbonation and abrasive mineral texture as most Sierra Nevada.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Keg Euston Tap London. A copper coloured beer with a white head. A full bodied citrussy beer with sweetness which balances reasonably well. A good body. Banana like notes present from the rye. Its drinkable but all a bit average really.

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2012
Slightly hazy amber pour with an off-white head. Good retention. Aroma is sweet grain, light caramel, slightly herbal, light fruit. Medium-full body, mild carbonation, low alcohol warmth. Starts off bittersweet leading to bitter on the mid palate and finishes bitter and dry. Not too shab.

Originally reviewed: 2/7/12. Poured this into a pint glass. Pours a dark tawny brown, with faint ruby tints. Great rocky off-white head. Cascading sticky lace clings to the glass for dear life. Sierra Nevada knows whats up when it comes to aromatic hops. Love the nose on the one. Sharp green hops, citrus rind, with an herbal finish. The body lends itself well to this hybrid. Moderate depth and decent carbonation bolster up this spicy beer. The rye imparts a subtle smack of spicy twang, but nothing over the top. Lip-smacking juicy hops abound, as expected and hoped for. Another SN trademark. These characteristics meld very well together, leaving me sipping and gulping for more. Mild sweetness in the middle, but then rounded out with another smack of bitterness. Great beer. Hope to see this around year after year.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
On tap @ Pizza Tugos, Ocean City Md-Copper pour w/a moderate tan head. Some hop, some spice, a little grain....didnt really do a whole lot for me. Seemed kind of muddled. This brewer is very hit or miss for me, I cant stand SNPA, but I do like some of their bigger beers. Cant say I thought too much of this one though.

12 oz Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a huge off-white/tan head. Aroma of citrus hops and some light caramel malt. Flavor of peppery rye with some sweet malts and citrus hops. Some bitterness at the finish. Pretty good.
