Sierra Nevada Sidecar Orange Pale Ale is now one of two new beers in the brewery’s portfolio in 2017.
The India pale ale has dominated the style category in sales for years. One of the fastest movers in the IPA family has been the fruited variety. The same goes for pale ales. Sierra Nevada has taken notice of this trend, and is ready to release their own fruited spins on some of their iconic beers.
Sierra Nevada Sidecar Orange Pale Ale is stepping up to the plate – brewed with citrus-heavy hops and orange peel. A citrus-y take on the brewery’s iconic pale ale.
The name accurately describes what you are in for in this new release. The best description – imagine Pale Ale (what you should have had by now), with a more pronounced orange and citrus flavor. A fresh take on a classic.
Adding tangy orange to the classic style we pioneered didn’t come natural to us. Our brewers argued over the perfect blend of bold hops and orange peel to create the best flavor and crisp, citrus bite. The result is a hop-forward beer that can stand alongside Pale Ale as a craft beer classic.
Sierra Nevada Sidecar Orange Pale Ale is a 12 ounce bottle and draft release.
