SIERRA NEVADA BEER CAMP 2013 BLACK IPA #94

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 2013 Black IPA #94. A strange combination of hops and yeast for a black IPA.

It utilises Sorachi Ace from Japan (which is known for its predominately lemon flavour) along with Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand (which delivers a trademark Sauvignon blanc flavour). Then it is fermented with Belgian yeast, which usually imparts a bubblegum flavour. Being 7.7% ABV, it’s relatively boozy.

Very dark brown colour it blocks out the light.  Fine light brown head with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Grainy chocolate malt aroma. Smooth, rich milk chocolate taste with a clean and slightly acidic mouthfeel.

The hop flavours aren’t particularly evident.  It's not very IPA-like, the hop flavours and bitterness are too low. It's more of a chocolate dessert beer.

 

7/10
