Beer Review: Sierra Nevada West Latitude

The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company teamed up with five other
brewing companies to create West Latitude, a Session Rye Beer that comes in at
a 5.5% ABV and 55 IBU. This beer is described as a combination of the
fruitiness of hops usually found on the Left Coast and the robustness of malts
and the spiciness of rye. It is fermented with the addition of hibiscus flowers
to share some love from the Hawaiian Islands, and to add a floral touch. While
it is described as having a body that is not too heavy, it is also described as
being bigger on the feel than expected. This beer is a part of the 2016 series
and check out my video here to gather my thoughts on how well it does overall.

The other breweries involved include: Bear Republic Brewing Company,
Faction Brewing, Mad River Brewing Company, Magnolia Brewing Company, and Maui
Brewing Company.
