Sierra Nevada's Big Little Thing IPA is a testament to the brewery's pioneering spirit and commitment to innovation. Launched as part of the "Little Thing" series, it follows in the footsteps of Sierra Nevada's exploration of unique beer styles, pushing the boundaries of traditional brewing.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Pours a deep golden colour, transitioning to reddish amber hues under light. It boasts a crystal clear appearance capped with a soapy white head, demonstrating excellent retention and leaving beautiful streaks of lacing on the glass.
  • Aroma: The aroma presents a harmonious balance between bready malts and floral hops, with initial floral notes leading into bready and biscuity nuances. Citrus and pine notes add complexity to the aroma, setting the stage for the rich flavours that follow.
  • Flavour: Big Little Thing IPA offers a delightful interplay of fruity hops and bready malts from the start. Floral hops, citrus, pine, and an assortment of tropical fruits like pineapple, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, and mango dominate the palate. The malt profile adds a layer of caramel sweetness and toasted biscuit, culminating in a citrus peel bitterness that's present but not overpowering.
  • Mouthfeel: With medium body and average carbonation, it delivers a smooth and slightly syrupy texture that isn't too cloying. A dry, resinous finish leaves a pleasant aftertaste, inviting the next sip.

Sierra Nevada's Big Little Thing IPA is crafted using a blend of Munich, Two-row Pale, and Wheat malts, along with an impressive hop lineup of Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, Idaho 7, Magnum, and Mosaic. This combination yields a beer with a bold body, sweet caramel and bread flavours from the malts, and a bright, dry finish typical of an Imperial IPA.

This beer pairs excellently with robust dishes such as aromatic Thai green curry, spicy tacos, grilled ribs, and strong cheeses like blue cheese and sharp cheddar. For dessert, an orange almond cake makes for a splendid companion.
