Hop Bullet

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"Hops are the name of the game with a Double IPA, but we knew we had to take it one step further. With Hop Bullet, we’re using a new technique, hitting the beer with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust—pure, concentrated hop flavor—directly into the tank to emphasize the intense pine and citrus flavors of classic West Coast hops."

Sierra Nevada's "spring" seasonal.
Citrus and malt on the nose.
Sharp citrus and some pine. Really complex yet smooth and creamy. Really tasty.
The relatively high alcohol content is not noticeable ... you could "get in trouble" drinking this beer.

8% ABV, 60 IBU
