IPA Day 2014 is today – This year I am sticking local

Posted on Updated on

Ah another IPA day is upon us, cant it be Saison Day, or Kolsch day?

Pending that ever happening (Stout day is I think about 3 months out I do believe), I might as well hop in and pick something new to try.  Recapping last year I went with an extremely fresh (for getting it on the east coast at least) Bear Republic Racer 5.

For this year I wanted to try something that I haven’t had yet (which of the IPA world there are many) but to try and stay local.

Why I picked it – Well it is giving props to the swamps of Jersey I commute to work every day to and uses one of the words we must not use when talking about craft beer ingredient  (whisper  rice /whisper).  That and being most definitely local and something I have never had.

Cheers! Happy #IPAday14
