Super India Pale Ale (New Belgium Brewery & Alpine Beer Company)

I’ve went on and one about my love for New Belgium and their Lips of Faith series, so I’ll refrain from beating that horse again. What I will talk about his the folks over at Alpine Beer Company. For the past couple years their IPAs have been garnering quite a bit of attention from the craft beer world. However, with all that hoopla surrounding them I had never tried one of their beers. Until now.

SUPER INDIA PALE ALE is a collaborative effort from Colorado’s New Belgium Brewery and California’s Alpine Beer Company. This Imperial IPA has a hefty 9% ABV.

17th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA (Great Divide Brewery)

I’ve had an affinity for Double IPAs for a while now, but it wasn’t until last year that I tried my first wood/oak aged DIPA. I was instantly hooked!

Citra Double IPA (Kern River Brewing Company)

This past Friday marked the release of Kern River Brewing Company’s CITRA DOUBLE IPA. In honor of that glorious event, my roommates and I jumped in the car and made the 2 1/2 hour trek into central California. We arrived around 3:30 in the afternoon and were glad to see that the bar/restaurant was relatively empty. Soon we were seated and I had my first glass of Citra ordered. Sadly, I was unable to purchase any bottles to take home since they had sold out at 11:30. Boo. So, I ordered a second glass and made sure to take notes there at the bar, instead of at home (like I had originally planned).

Citrus DIPA is a limited release Double IPA with an 8% ABV.
