Sierra Nevada Hoptimum Beer Review

Article by FisterRoboto of

$9.99/Four Pack

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

10.40% ABV

IBU: 100 (for real)

Serve at 50-55 Degrees

Enjoyed from a tulip glass

A: Beautiful bright amber with a finger of sudsy foam, sticky lacing.

S: Simply awesome. Big burst of piney resins and grapefruit immediately. Mango, pineapple, floral notes, little bit of alcohol and caramel mixed in for good measure.

T: Nice! Juicy citrus, sweet malts give way to a crisp, hoppy finish. This is surprisingly well-balanced.

M: Nearly perfect body. Lightly carbonated, just enough to make you notice the creaminess.

O: I was thrilled to see these four packs on the store shelf today. I missed the bombers last year and was really wanting to try this. I’m a fan of Sierra Nevada, and I hoped this was going to be their masterpiece. This is in the same league as their Bigfoot. If you’re a hophead, this is a must try. This easily belongs in the company of the big DIPAs. Sober up and go grab some before they’re gone.
