Sidecar IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"We pushed the complex and citrus-heavy flavors of hops to a new level with this orange-infused IPA. Combining bright and bold hops with real orange in the fermenter creates layers of citrus-crazy flavors, yet it maintains a balance and a crisp hop bite that make it the perfect aromatic IPA."

They kicked up the alcohol a bit and turned up the citrus kick and now call it an IPA.
Actually improved the Sidecar Pale Ale (now "retired").
