Parents, Don't Let Your Kids Drink And Drive!

Not a set-up. This is just like I found it in a local supermarket parking lot.

Hoptimum: Hops on Maximum Overdrive!

 The latest limited release from Sierra Nevada packs all the hop punch of an old-school 'Ali' knockout. Hoptimum Imperial IPA is a brain storm which came out of Sierra's annual "Beer Camp". This highly aggressive recipe contains Sierra's most recent proprietary whole-cone hop, used for aroma and dry hopping. Sierra keeps info on this hop under tight wraps. What they will tell you is that they use Simcoe, German Magnum, Citra and Chinook. Then two-row Pale, Golden Promise, Munich & Wheat malts are used to balance this unique brew.
 Checking in at a whopping 100 IBU's and 10.4% ABV,  "Hopheads" should have no problem getting their taste buds around this one. The explosive flavor is a "left hook" to the pallet with grapefruit, lilac, cedar, and fruit, all culminating in a very dry, crisp  finish. If you are up for the challenge, give Hoptimum a try, before it's all gone. Cheers!
