Beer Brawl 9 – Dogfish Head Imperial IPAs
This beer brawl really was impromptu, We were over at Corey’s (the sound guy) house for dinner, Mark (my beer brawling cohort) had brought 2 Dogfish IPA’s and I had brought 1. This quickly became a Brawl of Dogfish Head Imperial IPA’s. Imperial IPA’s is basically an IPA on crack, more malt, more hops, and more alcohol. Most Imperial IPA’s are 8%+ ABV with some getting to some very high extremes, like the 120 minute IPA which is over 20% ABV.
With me on this podcast, as usual, was Mark Jackson. The only prerequisite I have for these Beer Brawls is a love of beer. You don’t need to know anything about the beers we are drinking only a willingness to try them and voice an opinion.
As usual we have a podcast of The Beer Brawl:
or download from iTunes
On Tap for Tonight:
- Dogfish Head 90 minute IIPA
- Dogfish Head Burton Baton
- Dogfish Head 120 minute IIPA
Mark and I started off with the 90 minute, an amazing IIPA with great aroma. At 9% ABV and 90 IBU it was actually the smallest beer. Next, we moved onto the oak-aged Burton Baton, 10% ABV and 70 IBU, it was completely different IIPA and still an amazing beer. And finally the monstrous 120 minute IMPERIAL IPA, a luscious and unique IPA. Download the podcast and listen to all the details about these three brews.
Unlike previous weeks, all these beers were winners!
