    I'd assume it's dry hopped. This clone calls for a dry hop: https://www.boomchugalug.com/downloa...ipes/snowy.pdf

    see "secondary fermentation"

    huh , well that's surprising ........... I've always assumed it was not dry hopped just judging by the body of the beer, its not light and crisp like I expect of a dry hopped beer. And its a classic that was brewed in the early days of craft beer, before dry hopping became as popular as it is today.

    But that would explain the IBU's at 36, while the beer still retains a lot of hop flavor and aroma. The Sierra Nevada site does not specifically say if its dry hopped, just that its bottle conditioned, which would probably imply that maybe it is dry hopped. And they have a home brew recipe that says hops are added at the end of the boil ........

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. I have at least 2 clone recipes (from Brew Your Own) and 1 that is supposed to be directly from SN and it is not dry hopped.

    Even the recipe I use dry hops it, but since I'm not a hop head I don't. I think it tastes just fine without it.

    Interesting from the Sierra Nevada site, in their FAQ, they say SNPA has a shelf life of 150 days under optimum conditions, that being cool, dark, and wet ( whatever wet means ) . That's not very long. The reason to be really picky when buying hoppy beers.

    Lot of people don't like the bitterness of hoppy beers, I get that. But I also think some are getting hold of some hoppy beers that've been on the shelf too long.

    I think of coffee and tea of being bitter, so I wonder why so many instantly reject a beer because its bitter. When I was a cig smoker in my younger days, I enjoyed a cig with the bitterness of coffee and unsweetened tea. Cause me to switch from the sweet tea I was raised on, to unsweetened, cuz I like the taste of a smoke with the bitterness.
