Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, CA; Mills River, NC
Inspired by the island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected with the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papya, and passionfruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA.
Clear dark gold in color with the nose of a fruity woodshop. Subdued on the palate: not much up front. But then the bitterness kicks in and overwhelms any fruit. We tried this twice to make sure we did not get a bad bottle the first time, but both tasted the same. Fruit seems like an afterthought for this beer: is this what it is supposed to taste like?
Would we have it agan? No
