Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 2017 Golden IPA Spring Seasonal

Sierra Nevada 2017 Beer Camp Golden IPA Spring Seasonal. 6.5% ABV. 50 IBU.

Crystal clear, golden hued, lace-leaving ivory head.

In the nose: bright, bold, fruity, tropical. Beautiful hop flavors in this aroma.

In the mouth: Bitterness off the bat, but sweet and creamy, too. Bitterness calms down just a bit, then does a 2-step with the sweet, juicy part. Little dry, little bitter, little sweet. I like this tango a ton, and I'm enjoying this style of IPA more and more. Good beer and you can drink it.

From the website: At Beer Camp, no beer style is off limits, so we jumped at the idea of doing a Golden IPA using wheat malt for a light, dry body and bold American and experimental hops for intense citrus flavor. The perfect spring seasonal, we invite you to enjoy this year’s Beer Camp encore.
