Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Hop Bullet Double IPA

IMG_5623

This is a new springtime beer from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Hop Bullet Double IPA, 8.0% ABV and 60 IBUs, this double IPA is brewed with loads of Magnum Hops a Lupulin Dust. Hop Bullet pours a golden yellow color with a two finger head with some good retention giving off bitter orange and big pineapple and west coast IPA aromas that pull you more pineapple taste with nice big bitterness, a bit of orange and some slight grapefruit, melon with a nice west coast hoppiness on the back that has a nice strong bitter fruited finish and a big bitter earthy aftertaste with a medium mouthfeel. This is good but they can do a little better than this, Torpedo is a little better than this, but this has a touch more fruit flavor to this. Overall not a bad double IPA, it gets a B-. As Hop Bullet warms the bitterness becomes evermore present and strong and the fruity flavors are toned down a bit. I do recommend Hop Bullet Double IPA, it good. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
