The Beer Sampling Continues...

I was fortunate enough to pick up an IPA sampler case. It came with 12 different beers, 10 of which I haven't had before. I have only tried 4 so far, of which I really liked 3. First one was from New Holland Brewery, the Mad Hatter IPA. Not the strongest IPA but one I could see myself drinking quite a few of.
Next up was the Two Hearted Ale from Bell's Brewery. A bit stronger than the Mad Hatter, and quite a bit more hops. Don't let the label fool you this is a good IPA. My least favorite, but still a decent beer, was Long Trail IPA, it just wasn't hoppy enough for me.
Last one so far was also my favorite so far. Breckenridge Brewery's Small Batch 471 double IPA. Plenty of Hoppy goodness and at 9.2%abv, plenty of kick.

I will let you know how the rest turn out.

Cheers,
Buddy

I've been enjoying the shit out of the Dogfish Head 90 Minute on tap at my local watering hole/burrito joint.

Happy New Year!

It turns out the Black Ops is not broken, there was a significant amount of crap between the race and the crown.
