Calling Sierra Nevada Pale Ale just another American pale ale is an understatement -- like calling the Mona Lisa just another painting. Perhaps a better way to say it is that SNPA is the American pale ale. What's so incredible about it? To start, the hops have more grapefruit notes than other pale ales, and an appealing thick maltiness wafts into your presence on the first pour. The crisp hop flavor, frothy head, and smooth body will satiate your tongue.
