Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
Replacing Sidecar Pale Ale is the brand new Sidecar Orange IPA. They turned up the ABV and IBU's (was 5.3 and 35).
Still very tasty. More bitter than the pale, resinous. The orange flavor is very subtle. I see this as a great BBQ beer as it would pair well with so many foods and is still, for me, a "summer beer".
