Hoptimum 2019

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"Our brewers selected the finest, most flavorful hops, pushed them beyond their limits and forged them into this all-new triple IPA. This reimagined Hoptimum is our hoppiest beer yet, providing a blend of tropical and citrus hop aroma that delivers a refined yet aggressive character."

Big hop presence. Lots of citrus with a hint of pine in the background. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Alcohol is not very noticeable.

ABV 9.6%, 65 IBU
Hops: Citra, Crystal, Ekuanot, Loral, Mosaic, Simcoe, Strata
Malt: Two-row Pale, Flaked Oats, Wheat
Yeast: Ale Yeast
