Harvest Wild Hop IPA



From Sierra Nevada, this last of their 2014 five batch Harvest series features the wild hop Neomexicanus.   First time I tried was on draft and it had the unmistakable scent of marijuana.  And not just a little like it…a lot like it.  With the bottle I didn’t get that at all… just the great wet hop IPA you would expect.  

I’m not quite sure how to pronounce Neomexicanus.  I see “neo” at the beginning and “anus” at the end…but I doubt I should be putting emphasis on those syllables when I say it.   NEO-mexic-ANUS.  Now it’s hard to stop saying it that way. 

So, what do you think ?
