Sierra Nevada Hoptimum (355ml Bottle)
A double-dry-hopped and torpedoed DIPA (~9. 5%) made at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp for SF Beer Week 2010.
Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
