Beer: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale 

Aroma: Pungent grapefruit aroma with a slight piney flavor. Lots of citrus. No malt or yeasty aroma at all.

Taste: Smooth and crisp. Hops are definitely the forward flavor with very little, if any malt backbone. At first there is a light sweet fruit-like hop flavor, followed by a grapefruit  bitterness. It finishes clean.

Mouthfeel: Not too dry but not syrupy or thick.

Worth a try?: It seems silly to review this beer because the majority of people have tried it. It is pretty much used as the calibration for hoppy pale ales. So Yes it is worth a try, for everyone.
