Sierra Nevada has 4 beers in its “Little Factor” sequence, and lately the brewery refreshed the packaging for all of them, bundling them collectively in a combined 12-pack known as the Little Issues Social gathering Pack. We reviewed a couple of these beers last year, however that is our first take a look at the quartet collectively. Let’s strive all of them.
Sierra Nevada Sunny Little Factor – This citrus wheat ale (made with orange and grapefruit) is sharp with orange and tangerine peel notes, its grapefruit ingredient coming as moderately juicy, and a bit candy. The end is kind of citrusy, nearly soda-like at instances. Fairly and thirst-quenching, although brief on complexity — and a bit watery — it’s a easy summer time beer that pairs effectively with a catfish fry or a beefy BBQ run. 5% abv. B
Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Factor – (One in all) Sierra’s hazy IPAs, I’m liking this extra at the moment than I’ve up to now, its toasty, hoppy parts pairing extra clearly with its extra expressive fruitiness. Clear and malty, with gentle notes of orange peel, coriander, and a contact of lemon, it’s fairly and balanced and well-suited to your common joyful hour. 6.7% abv. A-
Sierra Nevada Massive Little Factor IPA – The hefty (double-ish) IPA within the assortment, it’s arduous to not gravitate to this approachable monster, which has a daring apple-cinnamon edge to mood what might in any other case have turn out to be an over-hopped bomb. As a substitute, it drinks like boozy custard, with a chewy, nearly butterscotch high quality to the candy, silky end. That stated, there’s not plenty of complexity right here: The beer is, certainly, each massive and little on the similar time. 9% abv. B+
Sierra Nevada Wild Little Factor – No actual modifications of opinion on this one. Bitter strawberry and a dusting of tropical guava conflict greater than I’d like, the end coming throughout as vinegary, pungent, and typically off-putting. Very bitter however in any other case unmemorable. 5.5% abv. C
