Mendocino Brewing Company – Imperial IPA (American Double)

  • 7.50% ABV
  • I was going to start off with how much I hate Imperials but I have beat that horse enough. Instead I will speak to what makes this a good beer. Number 1 would be the fact that other than its heavy IBU you cant tell it is an Imperial. Yes that is a backhanded compliment, sue me. This is actually pretty tasty. I wouldnt pick it over 5 other IPA’s but I am happy to have tried it.
  • + / – ??? I dont know

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.
