BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
We're constantly brewing new IPAs looking for bold hop flavor. With this beer, our brewers thought it was so good that we decided to serve it straight from the tanks - unfiltered, unprocessed, and raw - to let all the fruit-forward hop flavors shine. The result is a hazy beer with modest bitterness and intense hop character. To some, making an unfiltered hop bomb may seem crazy, but to us, its a hazy little thing called IPA.

Fresh exemplar, canned not long ago.
Hazy golden orange color with a thick bright head with great retention and leaving good laces.
Nice tropical aroma with notes of lychees, passion fruit, oranges, mild pine and stone fruit.
Flavor with notes of peaches, mango, passion fruit, oats, ginger, sweet flowers, wheat and a bit of dankness. Dry aftertaste with a medium very clean bitterness.
Light velvety body with appropriate carbonation.
Very tropical and sessionable NEIPA that should like even non-IPA lovers. Excellent cost benefit ratio and very well executed. Differs from the best in class in the dankness punch. With that price, I wouldn’t mind to reserve a space in my fridge.

Late-hopped skunky fresh smells, no bitterness, very drinkable and smooth.

A super refreshing IPA. Its mild biterrness and lower alcohol content make this beer a sessionable option. Bitterness enters on your first sip but quickly mellows out to a bready malty aftertaste that lingers comfortably until your next sip.

It’s good but nothing special. A very mild IPA. I am surprised that The IBU is listed at 40.

I am not one to drink an IPA. I honestly don’t like them at all, but I was given one of these to try, and my Goodness its my new favorite beer. It’s a very light IPA pours beautifully. Smells like any other IPA to me, but the Taste is way less Strong which is perfect for someone who doesn’t enjoy An IPA. I will definitely keep buying this beer, as it is my new go to when I can’t find anything that sounds appetizing!

On tap at The Whig. $3 NC/SC pint Monday.
Murky straw colored with a decent row fingers of head, healthy lacing.
Grapefruit pith, tangerine, yeast aroma.
Nice balanced citrus and malt taste, hoppy, but not overpoweringly so.
Soft mouthfeel, no alcohol, dry, durable carbonation.
I had this on a night out with friends, which was a good setting. If I had been drinking it alone and trying to pick it apart, my scores may have been lower. Decent beer.

Really solid IPA. You can find it fresh at the supermarket and it and its better than most of the stuff out there.

The aroma is loaded with big juicy citrus lemon and a touch of pineapple and some herbal almost minty thing going on in the background. The flavor is right there backing up the nose note for note. It's easy drinking with a medium body and balanced carbonation.
