Day 25: Golden Road Brewing’s Wolf Among Weeds

A case of beer down and just five more to go. So for our IPA of the week we are getting out of the Pacific Northwest and heading South to Los Angeles. Grabbing Golden Road Brewing’s Wolf Among Weeds IPA. I average a trip to LA around 2 times a year. While LA has many…

Day 18: Double Mountain Sweet Jane IPA

A very late in the day IPA. For day 18 I am still staying in the PNW… Yeah I’m upset about the lack of diversity in my IPAs here recently but when the crop is ripe… Double Mountain is out of Hood River, Oregon adding to the Pacific Northwest bias that has been very apparent…

Day 11: Pfriem IPA

It’s back to the Pacific Northwest for IPA day. As mentioned before, even though it’s probably the most overdone style of beer out there, IPAs are still my go to when grabbing a pint. Since moving to the West Coast I have seen the very good and very bad of this style. That being said,…

Day 8: Orlison Shin Splint IPA

For today’s local pick we are going for an IPA out of Spokane Washington. Orlison Shin Splint IPA caught my eye with the cartoon artwork emblazoned on the can. I am a sucker for good marketing. As a runner, I too suffer from the occasional bout of shin splints, so this beer was tugging at…

Day 3: Ft. George Overdub IPA

Free beer is much better than beer you actually paid for. That is especially true if its good beer. Today’s post is dedicated to a beer that was left at my house by a co-worker. I also just so happened to need an IPA for this series. So thanks Peter! This collab was a rather good…

Pasteur Street Brewing

Back in November I had the opportunity to visit Vietnam. My wonderful girlfriend got me a surprise birthday trip which she had been planning since the past February. My entire plan was to soak up the culture by eating and drinking my way from Hanoi all the way down to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)…

Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA Vertical

I really never thought that I would be one to age a beer for a year to compare it to newer vintage. For the longest time I scoffed at the idea. In fact the only reason this came to fruition is because I could never find the time to drink the Dogfish Head 120 Minute…

Melvin IPA

With Summer coming up and just for the fact that I hadn’t reviewed a new one in a while. I thought I’d try a new IPA. Especially given the fact that it is my 2nd favorite style currently. For a while I have been looking for a balanced IPA. With most of the IPAs I…

Drinking & Thinking

Even in the season of the dark beer, it’s nice to stop have a nice refreshing IPA. They might not be the freshest going round right now but you need refreshment goddammit! In my last post I mentioned that anytime is a good time for bubbly. Well, anytime is a good time for an IPA….
