Falconer’s IPA from Widmer Brothers is part of the Rotator IPA Series, which is Widmer Brothers lingo for seasonal IPA. This particular brew is dedicated to Glen Falconer, a brewing legend in the Oregen beer world who passed away in 2002. Widmer Brothers used Falconer’s Flight hops, a special blend named for Glen created by […]
Sad to say it, but if you didn’t already get some Stone Enjoy By 02.15.13 IPA, you probably won’t be getting any (assuming you live in LA). The Stone Company Store in Pasadena got a limited amount on the 16th of January and, as of writing this, there was a few bottles still left for […]
After a long day, nothing tastes better than an amazing IPA. So for today I present Hopulent IPA from Epic Brewing Co in Salt Lake City Utah. The interesting thing about Hopulent is that the tweak the recipe depending on what kinds of hops and grains they can get their hands on. This review is […]
In celebration of IPA Day 2012, Golden Road Brewing released custom IPA number 1 Wolf Among Weeds IPA, an ode to lovely plant we call hops. You might be asking yourself, “self, what is a wolf doing in the weeds and better yet don’t we only have coyotes in Los Angeles?” The answer to that […]
I’m here at Far Bar enjoying the Summer Beer Fest and for my first review I wanted to do something a bit crazy. So I present Ballast Point Habanero Sculpin. And to compliment this burning brew I present my review in haiku.
As a follow-up to my last post on Firestone Walker Double Jack, I felt it only fair to give the beer it’s derived from, Union Jack, a review as well.
I’ve written about quite a few of Firestone Walker’s darker beers (like Parabola, Sucaba, and Wookey Jack) but have very much been looking forward to writing about their IPAs, Double Jack and Union Jack. First up is Double Jack, Firestone Walker’s year round double IPA.
Today we celebrate Ruination. For those who may not know, Stone Ruination was the first year-round produced and bottled double IPA. To celebrate ten years of Ruination, Stone has released Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA
The most recent release from Hangar 24 is Essence, a double IPA made with fresh navel oranges, blood oranges and grapefruit all grown in Hangar 24’s hometown of Redlands, CA. This beer is part of the Local Fields series, which are special seasonal releases that showcase unique seasonal styles and distinct flavor combinations.
Another micro-review here. This time it’s Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. This IPA has to be my favorite year round available IPA that is sold in the Los Angeles area. I got a pint of this liquid gold at Xlixe Pizzeria (pronounced like slice) in Little Tokyo.
