BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is a true West Coast-style Double IPA made with huge amounts of hops - both in the kettle for flavor and later in the torpedo to impart a massive hop aroma. The light malt body and dry finish hide the power in this immensely drinkable hop-bomb.

Poured from tap into tulip, nice 1+ finger head, recedes to a pool, nice lacing. Crystal clear Amber in the glass. Smells of sweet malt, pine and some tropical citrus. Taste initially caramel malt, strong pine/pineapple with a hint of citrus. Finishes on the semi sweet side.

On tap at Sugar Maple in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Served in a snifter glass.

Lighter golden-orange body, one finger white head, fair retention and little lacing. Smell is primarily pine, citrus, caramel, light cereal grain. Flavour follows, with a good balance of caramel and floral notes, finishing with a bit of pine and cereal graininess. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, slightly sticky but otherwise not too bitter. A solid DIPA, it won't blow minds away but it'll fill you up nicely.
