Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dewight A very fine Ale
Hoptimum is a wonderful Imperial IPA. The malt is just slightly overpowered by the hops but that is as it should be per it's name. All in all it's very well balanced with citrus and banana undertones Drink it cool and in a largemouth glass to savor the aroma which is just as complex and rich as it's flavor. I can't think of a brew that I like more.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Diplomat2 Hop to it!
For years Sierra Nevada has been my brewmaster of choice. From Pale Ale to Northern Harvest their products are without peer especially the seasonal selections. In fact, Celebration Ale (Oct-Dec) is the best beer I have tasted anywhere in my world travels. Hoptimum also is another one of those truly flavorful brews alive with a hops flavor that lingers but leaves no after taste. Like most such beers it is one to be savored singly and not consumed in multiples. It can be matched with some foods but I prefer a couple of saltines if anything at all. Hopefully Total Wine will still have this beer available when next I order.
