Sierra Nevada Introduces Year-round Hazy Little Thing IPA and Hop Bullet Double IPA

By  | 

Hazy, New England-style IPA is officially a mainstream hit now that Sierra Nevada is introducing one year-round called Hazy Litle Thing IPA. Also recently announced is an early 2018 spring seasonal, Hop Bullet double IPA. Both will be hitting bottles and draft this spring.

 

 

Hazy Little Thing IPA

Description: A hop-heavy, unfiltered, hazy little thing called IPA. As brewers, we get the privilege to sample our beers straight from the tanks in all their raw glory. Some beers need a little polishing to get ready to go out into the world, while others—the hop-heavy, rowdy, crowd-pleasers—should just be left alone. We wanted to share this brewery-only treat with you, so we present this Hazy Little Thing, our unfiltered, unprocessed IPA, straight from the tanks and into the can.

Hop Bullet Double IPA

Description: Brewed with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust.Hops are the name of the game with a Double IPA, but we knew we had to take it one step further.
