Sierra Nevada gears up for another “Best Of” boxset release in 2012. Beer Camp is the brewery’s way of reaching out to the collective beer community by inviting lucky individuals to come brew in Chico, California. Some of the best ones find their way into a mixed 12 pack. Imperial Red Ale, aka Beer Camp #65, aka Red-oric seen above is the first of 2012’s potential entries in the pack.
This Imperial Red Ale takes the intense hop profile found in a traditional double IPA and turns up the malt. It has aromatic hop notes of grapefruit, peach, and melon – balanced by a smooth and surprisingly robust malt body.
Style: Imperial Red Ale
Availability: 12oz bottles, potential mix pack release
