Format: 4 x 355ml Bottles
This 4 pack comes with one each of the following beers:
Torpedo Extra IPA - 7.2%
Sierra Nevada and hops go hand in hand. What began as a crazy idea scribbled in a pub eventually became our newest year-round hop bomb, Torpedo Extra IPA. The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness. Torpedo Extra IPA is an aggressive yet balanced beer with massive hop aromas of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit.
Ruthless Rye IPA - 6.6%
Rugged and resilient, rye has been a staple grain for ages and its spicy black pepper-like flavour has been prized by distillers and brewers for centuries. Rye thrives in the harshest conditions and comes to life in Ruthless, a spicy and rugged IPA with fruity. citrus and herbal hop notes balanced with the dry spiciness of the rye, making the beer aggressive yet comforting to bolster against whatever the winter winds may bring.
Five Hop Experimental IPA - 5.8%
Five unique hops create cutting-edge flavour. Sierra Nevada's search for exciting hop flavours led them to a handful of unique hop varietals, each with flavours very different from those found in typical hops. This proprietary blend of five hops features complex flavours of cedar, coconut, chocolate and orange-citrus. This collection of vintage and cutting-edge hop flavours merge to create an IPA like no other.
Hop Hunter IPA - 6.2%
Hop Hunter IPA harnesses the complex flavours of just-picked hops through an all-new method of steam distilling wet hops before they even leave the fields. This revolutionary technique captures and intensifies the natural flavours, creating a unique and intensely aromatic beer. The custom process gathers pure hop oil which, when combined with traditional whole-cone hops in the brew kettle and in Sierra Nevada's Hop Torpedo, makes for an incredible IPA experience.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Solid brews and mix of styles. Typical Sierra Nevada great quality.
The Nooner Session IPA was tasteless, as was the Snow Wit (though the Snow Wit was better than the Nooner). Torpedo was it's regular good old self, and the Black IPA was pretty good.
Overall it was pretty disappointing and I really expected more from SN here. A distinct lack of flavour overall.
