Experimental Hop IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"Heavy hops, light haziness. The new style in IPAs is to highlight heavy hop aroma without intense bitterness, and this lightly hazy IPA does just that. It features the native-grown FZMR2 hop varietal, known for its mango-forward flavors, as well as HBC598, 438, and NeoMexicanus. The result is a danky, juicy, citrusy IPA with big flavor and aroma and low bitterness."

My clear favorite out of the variety pack.
Pleasantly bitter. Complex with subdued grapefruit finish that is delightful.

ABV 6.7%,IBU 58
Hops: Experimental Hops 598, 438 & Neo Mexicanus FZMR2
Malt:  Two-row Pale, Maris Otter, Oats, Wheat
Yeast: Ale Yeast
