SIERRA NEVADA HOPTIMUM IMPERIAL IPA

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum Whole-Cone Imperial IPA. This has to be the road test beer for head brewer Ken Grossman’s co-creation, the Spiegelau IPA glass. The “Olfactory Canon”  fires the full flavour hops straight into your senses.

This is all about hop resin, showcasing the German Magnum, Simcoe and *Proprietary with Citra and Chinook in the Torpedo, but the decent malt input cuts the 100 IBU to enjoyable, for a hop head.

The resinous coating on your mouth and the 10.5% ABV make this a great savouring beer, not a session beer.

 

9/10
