Sidecar Orange Pale Ale
So you all know that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a pioneering beer for like 8000 years (in the US) right? The brewery recently got this idea to amp it up using oranges and orange peels and some new hops to create Sierra Nevada Sidecar Orange Pale Ale. PKGD 12/06/16. 5.3% alcohol. 35 IBU.
Big bright orange aroma, tropical, tangy, full of citrus. The underlying flavors really do showcase the classic Pale Ale, nicely hoppy and lightly bitter, nice citrus, crisp and practically perfect in every way. But then yeah, there is a great orange and tangerine streak, very zesty, that runs through the beer.
Tangy, big citrus, nice addition to the beer. Loved it!
