This Is Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Sampler 2013

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 2013

The next release of Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp is upon us. Lucky attendees make a pilgrimage to Chico, California all year long to try their hand at brewing. The best of the best make it into a sampler pack. This August, look these beers in the 2013 edition (See L-R):

#93 IPA–This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.
#94 Belgian-style Black IPA–This beguiling black IPA takes a tropical detour with a dose of new world hops, featuring lemony Sorachi Ace and fruity Nelson Sauvin varieties. A Belgian yeast works with the exotic hop profile, emphasizing its complex and fruity flavors.

#95 Imperial Red Ale–Our aggressive Imperial Red Ale is a massive mix of smooth malts and West Coast hops that have no patience for the lupulin leery. This crimson beer starts with caramel-like malt flavor that can’t suppress the assertive, citrusy hop finale.

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Beers are available in 12oz/12 pack cases, and very limited draft offerings.

Styles: IPA, Belgian-Style Black IPA, & Imperial Red
Arrival: August, 2013

 

One thought on “This Is Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Sampler 2013

    Just had the Imperial Red Ale. The discription given for this brew is spot on. It is exactly my breed of thoroughbred concoction. Mahogany red, toasted head, orange nose, malty front with nice balance.
    The thing I liked most is overall drink ability. This ale is one to experience, nice lace with intracate attention to mouth feal and ABV, which is 8.5%.
    What I liked least is the sort really mild cough syrup taste I’m left with.
    Over all score = 4.25

    Sierra Nevada is close to a year round product with this one. Perhaps at 5 to 6.5% this would be a more commercial effort.
    Gotta love these guys for what they bring to craft brewing and the quality they define themselves by.

    NICE!
