Starr Hill Brewery – Sabbath (American Black Ale)

  • 7.20% ABV
  • This is a black IPA that is called Sabbath. I might be 13 years old but that shit is METAL! Also the the beer is really good. Black IPA’s are the beer that reminds me that I am a fucking idiot. I love them so much and I never drink them. Every time I drink one I remember I love them and then I dont drink one for like another year. I am a fool. This is a dark dark yet hoppy as fuck beer that still has malts peeking around the corner. My mouth is like a hot coed who naively  showers with the blinds wide open, the malts are that creepy dude who is wearing a raincoat.. and that is it. Also he is furiously pounding his pud. A lot. They are there and you dont really see (taste) them but you know they are there. OK I got a little side tracked, but this is a really good beer.

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery – RVA IPA (American IPA)

  • 7.00% ABV
  • Meh… It is a very mild but good IPA. I dont know what the IBU’s for it are but they have to be kind of low. For once I am not disappointed because there is a really cool story behind this beer. Hardywood got all of the local farmers to grow hops (of basically  any kind) and threw them in. I like it, it is a Virginia beer made with Virginia hops. All in all it is pretty good.
