On Sunday afternoon we dropped into The Goat in Fulwell, where they have an excellent selection of beer from around the world.
I do miss the American style IPAs, but Brewdog Hardcore IPA made up for it.
It is actually brewed in Fraserburgh, Scotland.
A gorgeous happy ale, with an abv of 9.2%
As a hophead myself, and comparing it to the likes of Stone IPA, or Dogfish Head 90 minute, I’d have to put it in third place, but that’s only by a whisker. I really do enjoy this beer, but it doesn’t have that ‘something’ that the others have.
It might be just your cup of tea (figuratively speaking of course).
Still on a scale of ten, I’d give it at least 7.5.
Today is a very special “Rare Beer Tuesday” event with RJ Rockers Brewing Company from Spartanburg, South Carolina! Mark Johnsen, Brewer/President/Owner/Founder of RJ Rockers will be in store to offer up growler fills of two of his latest and most limited creations: Rock Hopper IPA and Fish Paralyzer Belgian-Style Pale Ale! I can personally vouch for these excellent beers, having drunk both of them at EVO’s R.J. Rockers Beer Dinner last evening!
Mark will be talking shop about his beers and anything else you care to ask. He may even have some Rockers swag to giveaway! These unique growler fills will be available at awesome prices so get down to CBX and load up!
This ninety minute west coast-style IPA has nine hop additions of Warrior and Amarillo and comes in at a solid 90 IBUs. A smooth, super-citrusy IPA for the hophead in all of us!
This Belgian-style Pale Ale is moderately hopped with Tradition and Sazz and loaded with specialty malt to produce its sweetness and rich copper color. The strong Belgian essence of spicy flavors and aromas make this a truly unique drinking experience!
