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.

Dogfish Head IIPA

Dogfish Head IIPA

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.
