Episode 269: Citra Ass Down & Big Hundo IPA

Welcome to the Hop Cast, where Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder share their love of craft beer with the world.

On episode 269 of the Hop CastBrad 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 BreweryBrad 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!

Episode 254: Brown Note & Thunderbrew Anniversary Ale

Be warned, episode 254 is full of great fart jokes as Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder crack open a couple Brown Ales. Ok, now that we’ve peaked Gary Gulley’s interest…

First up, Brad andKen try The Brown Note from Against The Grain Brewery. This is a 5% ABV English Brown Ale that has one of the most ridiculous labels you’ll find. Following up this brown beauty, Brad and Ken open up the Thunderbrew Anniversary Ale. This was a beer Brad picked up recently at BlizzCon 2014.  The Thunderbrew Anniversary Ale was brewed for World of Warcraft’s 10 year anniversary by Bottle Logic Brewing. This is an Imperial Brown ale, not something you see very often but at 7.5% ABV this beer packs a bit of a punch.

Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast.
