Sierra Nevada Hoppy Lager

This 7.0% ABV India-style Pale Lager is from Sierra Nevada Brewing of Chico, California. It was originally a Beer Camp Across America release. They have some similarities, but I think the camp collaborations were better.

The beer pours orange and honey in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of white to off-white. The aroma is light, a bit of citrus and pine, with lager notes. The taste is mild, citrus and mineral over grain, with a fairly intense bitterness on the finish. The bitterness has a grapefruit quality to it. The beer drinks smooth, with a soft, but intense and tingling, carbonation.
