Sierra Nevada 2017 Hoptimum Triple IPA. Distinguished, Yet Devilishly Hoppy. 9.6% by Vol.
Clear, bright amber/near crimson, slim white head.
In the nose: dank. juicy. sweet. fruity. sticky-icky. yeah, that seems to be the hallmark of a “triple IPA.” Pithy, piney, plenty of citrus and tropical hop action.
In the mouth: Big, bold, and hot. Bold and burly. Slick, and thick, and delicious. But, not for the faint of heart, so to speak. Rich malts to match the huge hops.
