Drink IPA

This blog is a tribute to one of the best ales in the world. It will serve as an archive and guide to the beers I sample. Hopefully this will inspire a few of you to step into the delicious world of IPA.

Thanks for taking a look and enjoy.
At the brewery today! Free token with my AHA membership. Drinking the Dark & Twisted stout. Pretty solid. Mild not too heavy perfect for fall. @brooklynbrewery

BFM - 225 Saison. Excellent sour beer. Solid Brett funk aroma, tart but not too tart. This could age this but it’s drinking well now if you can get it. #craftbeer #sourbeer

SN - Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale. I’m not all that familiar w/ this series but I have to say that this beer is near perfection and the NZ hops are so choice! Get it and drink it! #craftbeer @sierranevada

NoDa - Hop Drop n’ Roll IPA.  Snagged this while in NC. Excellent execution here very proximate spicy bitterness and dry as a bone. #craftbeer #drinkit

Deschutes - Fresh Squeezed IPA. This was delicious, a bit on the sweet side and not all that bitter. #craftbeer

Sierra Nevada - Flipside Red IPA. I was expecting it to be bolder but it’s pretty well balanced. There is malt character mixed in with all those fancy hops. #craftbeer #drinkit

Steel String Brewery in Carrboro, NC. Tasty IPAs with loads of Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, and a small town feel. #craftbeer

Chimay - Special Cent Cinq 150 year. Worth the price tag. Some age could be helpful to this beer. #craftbeer #trappist
