The last few years have seen me drink more IPAs than one man should. As a result, I decided it would be a good idea to at least put these hours of hard “work” to a useful cause, spreading my thoughts on the single best style of beer, the India Pale Ale.
I tend to prefer the West Coast American IPA, and for the most part that will be the focus of this blog. Fortunately, I live in California (specifically San Francisco), where most of this delicious beer comes from. Northern California has countless amazing IPAs, from Cellarmaker, Fieldwork, Bear Republic, Lagunitas, Almanac, Anchor and so on. However, I do not discriminate (at least within CA), and cannot resist a hazy Monkish IPA, Sculpin from Ballast Point or Enjoy By from Stone. This blog will attempt to review all these beers, and provide other information or thoughts as they come to mind. Do not be alarmed if an occasional blog about where to drink IPAs with your dog, or about sports (more specifically the NBA), but I will be sure to incorporate IPA into the entry.
Feel free to share your thoughts, tell me why I am wrong, and generally participate in this blog.
