I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to help a local brew pub bottle some of their beer. We didn’t get paid, well, not in money. In fact, any bottle that was going to end up in the trash was given to us as samples. I pretty much think that’s not only a brilliant idea marketing wise, but also just down right nice. Here is a beer I may not have ever tried unless I got it for free in this exact fashion. It just isn’t widely distributed.

Anyway, check out the video to find out more.

    #1: 100IBU is huge for an IPA. More like the imperial IPA style to have that much.
    #2: I’m with you. Not sure why so many people are gonzo for IPAs. :)

    A little shocked that anything of 100IBU would be easy to drink.

    Lost,

    Yea, it is an Imperial, I thought I mentioned that early on, but then said something like, it seemed to easy to drink that’s why I compared it to a regular IPA. Again, I’m not a huge IPA fan, but this one seems well balanced enough for me to drink more times than not. I had a Dog Fish Head 90 Minute the other night, and I liked this one more than that. This one seemed to have more flavor, aroma and less sweetness than the DFH. I just think there is so much beer out there that isn’t all that great that is masked behind this hipster mentality. Pliny is a good example in my opinion. Its not that great, but you get enough people to drink the kool-aid and all of a sudden its the bomb diggiddy.

    Thanks for your thoughts. Which IPA’s of 100 IBU’s or more have you had that just were not easy to drink?

    Mike
