I often think back to what first drew me to IPAs. Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA and Ballast Point Big Eye. Both malty, hoppy goodness. Stone Brewing and Brew Dog bringing hops to the forefront.
Sierra Nevada’s imperial version of Hazy Little Thing. A bold hoppy IPA that is less hazy but more IIPA.
Melon and grape flavours backed by a drying finish. Despite that it’s a soft, easy drinking beer.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen or had this porter from Sierra Nevada. Like many of the early beer experimentation days, they all seemed to stem from Sierra Nevada.
