I went into Track Town Pizza in Eugene, Oregon the other night. It was my first time, as I was passing through on my way home to Grants Pass. My first impression is that this is THE PLACE to be for any and all University of Oregon sporting events. Pics of the late track legend Steve Prefontaine dot the walls. I ordered a Watershed IPA that appears to always be on tap. I lucked out as all brews are $3 a pint on Tuesdays. Anyway, this is an IPA that is balanced, yet doesn't sacrifice the obligatory bitterness that seems to be the curse of some other commercial IPAs that I've had lately, like Blind Pig. Denny is right. This is a fine IPA. (Maybe someone here knows what hops are used in this IPA??)
While I'm at it, I'll put in a plug for Hodgson's IPA that was served at the Fish Tale Brew Pub in Olympia, Wa. This is not to be confused with their Organic IPA, which I also had. The waitress with the European accent recommended it as being "more bitter" than the Organic IPA, so, I ordered a pint. She knows her stuff! She also told me the ABV was 6.8%. This was a well balanced pint, too, with a smooth, lingering bitterness.
