Stoudts Brewing Company – Stoudt’s Double IPA (Imperial IPA)

  • 10.00% ABV
  • I think M1 hates me. I really don’t care for Imperials and yet she keeps buying them. What ever, beer is beer and I love beer. When you hear Imperial IPA you (or I at least) immediately think of double the bitter and most of the time I am right. Welp this is one of the other times, instead of bitterness I guess Stoudts went for the malts. M1 tried it and didn’t even believe it was an IPA much less an Imperial, she actually thought it was kind of sweet. Either way, it doesn’t work for me.

Mendocino Brewing Company – Eye of the Hawk (American Strong Ale)

  • 8.00% ABV
  • I am a big fan of the White Hawk IPA from Mendocino so I was pretty psyched to try this. I should have know better, every time I look forward to trying something I am usually let down and unfortunately it has happened here. It isn’t bad tasting but for some reason while the ABV isn’t that high I can really taste it. Or maybe it is just a weird hop, I dont know.
