Kiuchi White IPA
First released June '17
Brewed with: Yuzu, Coriander, Citra
One of the 12 Sierra Nevada Across the World collaborations, this time with Japanese brewers Kiuchi. Hitachino Nest's most popular beer is their White Ale, so it was a natural starting point for this collaboration. Sierra Nevada opted to add hops (as they are known to do) and made a white IPA based on the flavour profile of the white beer. Kiuchi suggested incorporprating the use of yuzu (a small Asian citrus fruit) into the brew, and they found the bright lime-like tartness perfectly accentuated the flavours of hops and the spicy notes of the classic witbier yeast.
