Sierra Nevada Hoptimum
Sierra Nevada is a whole-cone DIPA beast clocking in at 10.4% ABV and 100 IBU. Things start out with sweet malts and tropical fruits that linger behind some massive hops. Getting some notes of grapefruit but the pine is off the charts. Man, this thing is hoppy! Hoptimum has a lot of that big peppery/spicy Sierra Nevada hop thing on the finish as well. A bit of a drawback is that the booze is too easily noticeable, you can feel/taste all of the ABV! This beer is kicking my taste buds in the ass, and the ABV is kicking my actual ass.
