Lagunitas Hop Stoopid

Most of you know my fondness for IPA beers, and this Imperial IPA from Lagunitas Brewing is just another reason why. Hop Stoopid is an Imperial IPA that comes in at 8% ABV and 102, yes 102 IBU. But despite the high IBU level, it is matched very well with the malts to create a fantastic and wonderful balance. This is one to be enjoyed for sure and check out the video to see and hear my other thoughts on this, what I would call fantastic beer.

 

Christian Moerlein Wild Hunt

Wild Hunt from Christian Moerlein Brewing is a limited Black IPA that seems to have been released in limited availability and finding it proved to be a nice surprise. Although I had a couple of issues with the labeling of it, the beer itself was a pleasant surprise for sure. This 6% ABV Black IPA had a nice balance of the malts and the hops which pulled the beer together nicely. Check out my video here to see and hear my other thoughts on this Cascadian ale.
