Fresh Hop Double IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"No celebration of fresh hop flavor would be complete without a showpiece for field-fresh Simcoe hops—one of the stars of this year’s early harvest. These intense hops amp up the hop notes in this Fresh Hop Double IPA with huge citrus and grapefruit-like hop flavor."

The citrus is there but not "huge". I was a bit suprised by the sweet caramel maltiness. lots of hoppy goodness here. Delicious!
(and no way I'd have guessed 8%, so ... be careful)

8% ABV, 67 IBU
