Sierra Nevada Fresh Hop IPA
I saw last month that Sierra Nevada has a Fresh Hop mixed 12-pack and had to check it out! Fresh Hop IPA was the first one I grabbed (Fresh Hop Session, Fresh Hop Double and Celebration Ale were the others in the pack). PKGD 10/13/17. Drink 12/3/17. 6.4% alcohol.
Aroma jumps out of the glass, bright lemony citrus, candied lemon. Memorable! Bright, sharp citrus flavors come first, quite a dose of lemon and grapefruit. Some pine and floral character but that citrus is a bomb!
Astringent, very fresh, nasal cleanser. I liked but it certainly could have used a little more balance! Check it out!
