In this beer blog, we are going to get into West Coast Double IPA from Sierra Nevada Brewery. This is a beer they made to kick off Beer Camp. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know history of Sierra Nevada Brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this West Coast Craft Brewery. Let us get into this Double IPA.
It has a clear slightly dark golden color with a white constant head. The aroma is citrus to orange notes. The taste has a nice light carbonation citrus notes with a dry hop bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable for a Double IPA.
Here is a description from website (www.sierranevada.com):
Heading to most states in limited quantities, the Beer Camp Across America West Coast Double IPA clocks in at 8.5% ABV and features five hop varieties, two of which went into Sierra Nevada’s “Hop Torpedo” dry-hopping device and impart hints of grapefruit and a floral note that recalls orange blossom. A light malt body and dry finish complement the bold hop profile.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, this was a great beer and it is a perfect beer to kick off beer camp. I was pretty happy to get a Beer Camp 12pk. I wish they would have made more because some of the liquor stores are over charging. I am still happy that I have at least one. I am pretty big fan of their Extra IPA. They took that one and they hop it up. I love the aroma to the color of the beer. I love the packaging. I love the hops and the malt backbone is a perfect match. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
