    Just in time for the 4/20 holiday weekend, hoptimum has hit shelves in the Chico area. That danky hop taste is just as strong as ever, with that sweet resin taste lingering. In the brewery, its suprisingly in bottle form only for now until they decide to tap it. Go get some!!

    One of my favorite brews ever, and the beer that singlehandedly got me into craft beer.

    I hope it hits the east coast soon!!!

    I cant give you a sugar reading between last years and this years, but there is some sweet/syrupy-ness to this years. I think thats how the beer is, and some like it and some dont.

    The Brewer & the Beer Geek video (SN website or youtube) about Hoptimum is pretty good, tells the history of it etc.

    I've heard of it, but have never seen it or tried it; but the terms "Sierra Nevada" and "DIPA" would certainly seem to go together. I'll keep my eye out for it...and who are these Sierra Nevada haters, anyway? They'd have to be knuckle dragging fools. I've never had anything but very good beer from them. As huge as they've gotten, their quality level is astounding.

    There are no SN haters here, there are those who like SN and those who love SN, that is all. I am on the love SN side of things.
