Sierra Nevada Hoptimum Imperial IPA is a whole cone hopped, big bold beer brought to you by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. There’s a whole-lotta bitter happenin’ here! Resinous "new-school" and exclusive hop varieties carry the bold and aromatic nose. The flavor follows the aroma with layers of aggressive hoppiness, featuring notes of grapefruit rind, rose, lilac, cedar, and tropical fruit—all culminating in a dry and lasting finish.
A group of hop-heads challenged the Sierra Nevada brewers to push the extremes of whole-cone hop brewing. And “push” they did! The result is this: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s Hoptimum Whole Cone Imperial IPA; a 100 IBU, 10.4% ABV, whole-cone hurricane of flavor.
This IPA is aggressively hopped, dry-hopped, AND torpedoed with Sierra Nevada’s exclusive new hop varieties for ultra-intense flavors and aromas.
Simply put —Sierra Nevada Hoptimum Imperial IPA is the biggest whole-cone IPA Sierra Nevada Brewing has ever produced.
