Fresh to Sierra Nevada's lineup, Big Little Thing takes Imperial IPA to a new level: at 9% ABV, it has a smooth malt body and mega-tropical hops, yet its sweetness is tame and the finish is clean. Big? No doubt. Drinkable? Ohhh yes.

The brewers go all out with the mash, then dry-hop a lot. And dry-hopping during active fermentation sparks biotransformation: yeast cells alter the chemical compounds in hops to unlock entirely new aromas—like the notes of mango, grapefruit, and tangerine billowing from Big Little Thing.

Now with The Little Things, you can choose your own adventure. Feeling Hazy? Wild? Or is it time to go Big?
