Sierra Nevada Best of Beer Camp Double IPA
I picked up a case of Sierra Nevada Best of Beer Camp for poker, and the first beer I had was the Double IPA. The beer pours an amber color with a lofty frothy white head that laces to the glass. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, lemon, and pine. The taste is smooth and sweet with caramel and sugar at first before the hop bitterness kicks in and dries the tongue. It leaves citrus flavors of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and orange before a bit of pine arrives. The alcohol content is 8.5% ABV. This was a solid Double IPA to come out of Beer Camp, and I really enjoyed the citrus notes as well as the slight sweetness.
