Happy Easter! I've recovered from the Food Coma that Easter Brunch entails and elected to crack open a nice IPA from the kind folks over at the Sierra Nevada Brewery. This one was contained in the "4-way IPA 12 pack" that Sierra Nevada put together this year. Along with the beer that I cracked open (Nooner IPA) the 12 pack contained 4 each of the Snow Wit, Black and Torpedo IPA's. This one was my favorite - even over the Torpedo which I love.
There is something contained in either the hops or the yeast that gives this beer a gentle spiciness that is wonderful. Hard to describe, but it is a bit of cinnamon or allspice character that takes this beer over the top for me - great stuff!
Sierra Nevada's site -----> easy drink-ability
A review from the Bitter Nib -----> fierce and powerful on the palate
Putting together the playlist for the Dreams show and that would be one of my dreams -that the Sierra Nevada folks would produce this one as a regular beer and not as a limited run selection. I'll be heading over to a gathering a bit later, so won't be recording the show and posting it tonight, but rather tomorrow.
