Straight from the DBR bar, we have our first blind taste test podcast. Why a podcast? Because there are never enough! And I’m too lazy to write up the results and, bonus, I already have the equipment.
We have a good reason too, having just come back from Vermont with some of the top IPAs in the country. Namely, the renown Heady Topper, Sip of Sunshine, and up-and-comer Second Fiddle. With all of these at our disposal, we naturally arrived at the only question that matters. To paraphrase Iron Chef, which one reigns supreme?
As arbitrary as pointing out a “best IPA” really can be, we decided to give it a go by pitting four beer nerd palates against 3 of Vermont’s finest and 5 local mystery IPAs (done more to confuse our palates for the big 3) in a blind showdown.
Warning: This here podcast contains the salty language, so delicate ears need not apply.
