10 Barrel Joe IPA
« on: July 28, 2015, 10:36:40 PM »
Put on a motorcycle trip, stopped in Hoodsport, WA for the night.  Picked up a sixer of "Joe" to go with cigars.  I chose it because it advertises Simcoe, Amarillo & Mosaic hops.  Wonderful hop flavor.  Seriously one of the best IPAs I've had

The lack of comment due to 10 Barrel being owned by the Evil Empire?  Probably not, but I wonder.  Regardless of who makes it it is seriously tasty stuff!  And frankly...  Aw nevermind.

Our liquor store just started carrying a couple of their beers. Haven't tried either yet simply because I don't buy bottles this time of year.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Lol.  Yeah I hear you but good beer is good beer.  AB-INBEV also owns Goose Island which makes awesome Belgian styles and some kind of Barrel aged stout you may have heard of ;). Miller Coors owns Leinenkugel  which has some outstanding beer in the "Big Eddy" line.

I bought a six today. They got warm on the way home. Not sure who likes warm beer, what a rip off. But I'll try another after the chill just to be fair.

Tried some Joe the other day and wasn't a big fan.  I bought it because those are some of my favorite hops, but it had a "dead" (don't know how else to describe it) almost oxidized taste.

I have stopped buying IPA in cans or bottles, as it all tastes "dead" to me anymore.  I only seem to enjoy IPAs fresh out of a keg.

I'm pretty much there myself, unless I know it to be very fresh. I prefer my IPAs out of the keg against most bottled or canned ones.

Agreed, I have had Sclupin in bottles and cans and both were wonderful! Unfortunately, I have not had the pleasure of it on draft, but I am sure it is equally if not more wonderful

They were giving away samples at NHC...incredible!  Unfortunately, due to my meds, I couldn't try the grapefruit version.

Found the grapefruit here in bottles, tried it and went back for more! Sorry your meds kept you from it, but you gotta stay safe with health issues

Grapefruit sculpin is surprisingly awesome. The grapefruit makes it taste and drink like a session beer. Dangerous

I think it was better than the non-grapefruit version.  It mellowed the sharpness of the bitterness.
