I’ve finally healed from my back-pain woes of last week. It only took 8 days for the pain to go away. Having not reviewed a beer in over a week, I’m definitely having beer blogger withdrawals. To get things going again, I’m reviewing Sierra Nevada Hoptimum. LIBA newcomer Vini reviewed this beer a few weeks back. Vini attended the LIBA Craft Beer Meetup and gave me a bottle of the Hoptimum to try. I figured we would compare notes.
Vini’s review is spot-on. The beer pours with a moderate head. It has a sweet floral aroma but the flavor profile is pine-tastic. The extraordinary level of pine is a bit much for my pallet. Vini loved this stuff, so if you’re a hop-head and love that piny bitter, this beer is for you.
