Had a nice big handle of this classic American IPA from @sawtoothbrewery while steak and potatoing it at Jakers in Pocatello, ID. Crisp, delicious and modest 6.7% ABV, the next time I’m up in the Sawtooth area I am definitely go to swing by and have a few tasters.
Back in KCMO at Boulevard Brewing. This time I am tippling a “The Calling” IPA. Bright, hoppy and 8.5%. Better limit myself to just one. And a cheddarwurst to wash it down.
Dank doesn’t even begin to reveal the hop profile of this. Hoppy sweatsocks. Delicious.
A new double IPA from backstreet brewing
A couple of experimental IPAs – Barbe Rouge, which uses French Hops, and Triumph, which uses a combination of 7 hops.
At 10 Barrel in Bend, OR having a few fresh-brewed beers along with lunch.
Say what you want about flying, but at least Alaska Air serves decent beer from Alaska.
At Mr. Petes’ in San Clemente enjoying a Le Left Coast trestles IPA just north of trestles the beach.
While in KCMO I stopped into Boulevard Brewing’s HQ for a few tasters with and old friend. Heavy Lifting is an IPA, which at 6.2% isn’t heavy at all. And Rye on Rye on Rye a stout aged in rye barrels. It’s got a boozy kick but a nice, clean finish.
