Hoptimum 2013

Like a hop hand grenade. But deemed nice to hand to your friend.


Ovila Saison from Sierra Nevada

This one’s been sitting in my fridge for a little over a year, but I’ve been meaning to try it. It’s Ovila, a Saison collaboration Sierra Nevada did with the monks of the restored Ovila Abbey in Northern California.



10.4% imperial whole-cone IPA from Sierra Nevada.  Yummy.


Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Trippel

…at Toronado.   At first taste it reminded me of the remnants of a whiskey cocktail after the ice has melted and watered it down.  Next fews sips were much better…flavors better as it warmed.


Torpedo at Urge

Stopped into Urge gastropub in San Diego for the first time. Nice atmosphere and lots of taps. Decided to be mellow and have a Torpedo IPA from Sierra Nevada. Excellent, well-balanced IPA; never regret getting this one.
