I am starting to think this blog is the best idea I ever had. I went to a liquor store with Kristi today and she said I can get anything I want as long as I blog about it. Anyways I ended up with this Sierra Nevada beer that I had never heard of. My guess is it is a seasonal or experimental beer.
I chose this beer because I love hops and Double IPA's always seem to be my favorite. So why would you not choose a DIPA named Hop Bullet? I was sold on the name alone, but when I saw that it was 8% there was no question. I will say that I am very rarely let down by Sierra Nevada, but wow this beer is really standing out to me. It has a great blend of pine, hops and wheat. This beer is super smooth but still tastes and feels like a mans beer.
I will warn you that a couple of these hoptific brewskis later you will be ready to dance, talk the next person you sees ear off, and never want the night to end. I personally ended up taking on the town with a good friend. The first move once I was out was to switch to guns with tweeners. That is where you start drinking hard alcohol and tweeners. Tweeners are the beers you drink in between your real drinks. A good pro tip is that enough of this combo will make any kareokee sound tolerable.
Okay, okay back to the beer. I would say this beer is smooth but strong. The best weather to enjoy this is going to be fall or winter. The first sip I took I thought about enjoying this brew after a long day of snowboarding. To be fair I feel this way about a lot of DIPAs. The color is a foggy golden hue to match the refreshing feel the beer has to it.
As we creep up on the 2019 NFL season this beer has all the indicators to be a great tailgating beer. Not light enough to where you throw back 15, barely get a buzz and spend the rest of the game at the urination station. Strong enough to where you have a couple of beers (no need to buy beers in the stadium) and you will be just buzzed enough to cheer on your team extra loud.
