When I woke up this morning, I had the itch to make beer cocktails tonight — so I reduced some IPAs and made simple syrup.
I’ll be making drinks with these simple syrups tonight only at Forte.
The first one I made was, of course, Southern Tier.
I also had a bottle of Sierra Nevada’s new single hop IPA — the Idaho 7 varietal.
According to Sierra Nevada, this newly developed hop has a fruit-forward nose. Expect complex fruity aromas of orange and apricot with hints of black tea-like character and a pleasant fresh herbal bouquet.
Sierra Nevada kicks is doing a whole series of IPAs this year, all exploring different hopping methods: single hop, fresh hop, wet hop and wild hop.
