I was lucky enough to be part of Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp, and our camp's beer made the Best Of Beer Camp variety pack and bottle sales. The recipe I have below is the original release under the name Sleight of Hand, which is more Belgian and Hop-Aroma than the national release.

Beautiful tropical hops aromatics play with the Belgian yeast, leading to a dark, full malty flavor and body.

As several folks had come to me for a recipe, I am posting it here, with Sierra Nevada's permission. Enjoy, and please ask questions!

With approximately 1/3 of your grain bill being Pilsner did you do a 90 minute boil?

Sorry, missed the boiling time listing. Also, would you consider adding some hops earlier to better "protect" the wort?

I am going mostly off of the official recipe which had a 60min addition. Saw no need to "protect" the wort early in the boil.

Awesome! I had this beer a few weeks back and was blown away. Thanks for posting this.

Question, how long should this guy age? I'd hate to waste it by pouring too soon...

Glad you liked it! I would say it was really awesome at 2 months. Want to make sure you have those strong hops aromatics present. They fall off, and give way to a very malty Belgian with strong hops flavor. Still delicious, but the aromatics are amazing so should be enjoyed while that is still going strong.

Cheers!
