80-84...85 not pictured.

Welcome to another round of India Pale Ales. No matter how many of these we drink, there are always another fifty of these wonderful hoppy ales in the fridge to try. This time we even added a sixth to the proceedings as we had extra time and no one was around to tell us not to!

I really like the line up we had for this round. We have a well thought of craft brewer, Goose Island, a craft brewer that I don’t think gets enough press, Dundee, a highly reputed craft brew that you can’t get in St. Louis, Dogfish Head, a wonderful Scottish Brewer, Belhaven, a new to St. Louis craft brewer, Green Flash, and an English brewer, Greene King.

The considered.

Well, with looking at beers that we’ve purchased and seen and wanted…we ended up with a whole ton India Pale Ales again, but more than that, we ended up with doubles, triples, extras, etc. So, in this installment, that I’m generously calling Double IPAs, we’re going to have one Extra IPA, one Triple IPA, and two Double IPAs…so if you average it out…that’s four double IPAs. My apologies to the person who said to me how nice it was that we don’t do too many IPAs. Bob and I both love IPAs, and the fridge is full of them. So we’ve got to move a few out…we’ll get back to another kind of beer next time. I promise.

This time out we’ve got one Schlafly, one Founders, one ODell, and one from a new to us brewer, Green Flash. We decided to take them in order of lightest to heaviest…there’s a pretty big gap between the highest and the lowest.

Bob:¬†Overall this was a very high quality tasting session, perhaps our finest thus far. All of these brews were flavor bombs that I can’t imagine anyone being wishy-washy about.
