Just Tapped: Sierra Nevada Hoptimum

by Tap Tender

July 11th, 2014

Hop Heads this one is for you! Copper red with a quickly diminishing tan head, pine and alcohol to the nose, but the palate sweet malt and quite herbal . Lingering metallic and medicinal notes and just a hint of citrus at the very end. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy and hot with alcohol.

From Sierra Nevada:
A group of hop-heads and publicans challenged our Beer Camp (#19) brewers to push the extremes of whole-cone hop brewing. The result is this: a 100 IBU, whole-cone hurricane of flavor. Simply put- Hoptimum: the biggest whole-cone IPA we have ever produced. Aggressively hopped, dry-hopped and torpedoed with our exclusive new hop varieties for ultra-intense flavors and aromas.
