Hoppy Lager is the latest outstanding product to emerge from Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp. It pours a bright, clear lemon color with a thin head. The aroma is strong hops, citrus, and a sweet, buttery malt. There are notes like popcorn and pears in the aroma. The flavor is primarily the hops up front, but this beer is well balanced. The rich malt is huge on the back of the tongue. I’d buy this year round if they made it available.
