On episode 269 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder reach for a couple big cans of IPAs. The first one the guys crack is the Citra Ass Down from Against The Grain Brewery. Brad and Ken have had a number of Against The Grain Brewery beers on the Hop Cast over the years and they are always fantastic. This double IPA coming in at 8.20 % ABV doesn’t disappoint. This is a very hop forward American style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Vienna, Munich and wheat malt for a solid base for all American hops, focusing mainly on the variety “Citra.” Following up this the guys move onto the Big Hundo IPA from Magic Hat Brewing. Many people only know Magic Hat Brewing as the #9 brewery but they have always made some other very solid beers. The Big Hundo IPA is a 9.0 % ABV double IPA, the name comes from the IBUS which clock in at 100. For being 100 IBU’s, this beers isn’t only bitter to be bitter and is balanced fairly well.
Cheers & thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
