How can you not like Sierra Nevada Brewing when they put out beers like this!?! These guys are great. I’ve been anticipating this beer for about a year. Previous to 2009 – this beer was only available at the brewery. So I may be a little bias. This beer was easy to drink, not overwhelming – well balanced. Slightly more hoppy than malty – but overall delicious. Drink it while you can!
