By little I mean 12 fluid ounces. By Puff I mean 9.8% ABV, 108 IBU IPA from Sixpoint Brewery. Per the label an unfiltered and special dry-hopped version of their Resin imperial IPA.

It’s been years since I’ve had a Primordial IPA from Vista’s Mother Earth Brew Co. I remember the first place I had it outside their brewery supply store / nano brewery was Phileas Foggs in Poway.

A tasty 8.2% unfiltered imperial IPA. Piney and resinous hop nose, with strong but pleasant hop bitterness over a pale malt body with no residual sweetness. Bitterness lingers only slightly after swallowing.
Grabbed a 9.7% ABV imperial IPA aged with oak spirals, from San Francisco’s own 21st Ammendment Brewing, packaged in a pool-safe decanter, to enjoy in the warm spa after our ride. Still quite good though a bit past it’s best by date.

Surprised to see this 2014 GABF award winning imperial IPA, and a such a great price.
Though I lost to my bougainvillea (I lost more blood than it lost branches), I got the beer and last laugh by urinating on the plant. Mystery beer from Port Brewing ended up being Hop-15. A very nice prize for me.
