Big Little Thing

 Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)

"Make way for the Big Little Thing, an imperial IPA flexing a full malt body, restrained sweetness, and tropical hop flavors of mango, grapefruit and tangerine."

Not the hop monster I was anticipating (fearing). It's well balanced and the alcohol is well hidden.
Tart fruitiness with a nice touch of sweetness and a backbone of roasted malts.
Very nice and perhaps my favorite of the "Thing" family.

ABV 9%, 45 IBU
Hops: Magnum, Crystal, Chinook, Idaho 7, Columbus, Cascade, Mosaic
Malt: Pale malt, Wheat malt, Munich malt
Yeast: Ale
