Sierra Nevada Moxee-Moron Imperial Session IPA - Beer Camp Across America 2016

This is part of the 2016 Beer Camp Across America special release from Sierra Nevada Brewing of Chico, California. They invited 31 breweries all across America to join in a collaboration brew with them and/or join them on their Beer Camp Tour with six stops across the USA. The release features a mixed 12 pack of six unique beers. This year's release was a bit hard to find and was a whopping $29.99 for a 12-pack.

This is a 7.5% ABV Imperial Session IPA. That of course makes no sense, it would be an oxymoron, the in joke with the name Moxee-Moron. The collaborators were Bale Breaker, Barley Brown's, Black Raven, Melvin, and Odell.

The beer pours an orange golden in color. There is an inch of white foamy head. The aroma is floral, fruity, and dank. There is pine and overripe fruits. The taste is a blast of pine over very ripe fruits, with just a touch of dank. The finish is sand storm dry, with a moderate bitterness. The aftertaste is full of passion fruit. The beer drinks smooth, but nicely carbonated, with a medium body; a real easy drinker. This is a good one.
