Fresh Hop Session IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"This IPA is light in body, but big on hop flavor from the use of fresh Strata hops—a newly-developed varietal—that offer up intense herbal and dank hop flavors in this crisp, snappy, golden session IPA."

From the 2017 "Fresh Hop Pack".
Big hop nose ... lots of pine. The first sip was indeed "dank" ... slightly "catty" even, but it mellows out a bit as it sits.

Very enjoyable, very tasty, very sessionable.

4.8% ABV, 41 IBU
