Just yesterday, I told you about the Washington Hop Mob Triple IPA Roadshow (among other events happening between now and Spring). At the Hop Mob Roadshow stops, you’ll have the opportunity to taste several different Triple IPAs from several different local craft breweries. It will be a treat for your taste buds and a test of your fortitude, since most of these Triple IPAs will be as strong as some Barleywines.
Don’t want to wait until the Hop Mob kickoff event on Thursday, February 4th at Brouwer’s Cafe to taste a Triple IPA? You’re in luck. One of those breweries, Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor), is set to release their Triple IPA, Birdserker, this coming Saturday, January 23rd.
Here is a bit more information about this beer from Black Raven Brewing Company:
Brew a triple IPA?
What the hell is a triple IPA anyway?
Is it a young barley wine or a super imperial IPA?
Well whatever it is, here you go!
Enjoy with caution and make sure you are sitting down.
2016 LIMITED RELEASE
Taproom and 500ml bottles to go
$8.99 + tax
4 bottle limit per person, per day
Sorry, no growler fills.
When an IPA comes in at 10.2% ABV, you’ll only want to enjoy one, perhaps two at the most, before heading home with your 4 bottle limit. Also, it makes sense that no growler fills will be available for Birdserker, which is often the case with such high gravity beers. I remember having this beer at one of last year’s Hop Mob events. For such a strong IPA, it drank quite smooth and had a nice hop punch that fans of big, hoppy IPAs are looking for. Birdserker Triple IPA will be available starting at noon on the 23rd, when Black Raven opens their doors.
The arrival of Birdserker Triple IPA also means that we should be seeing Son Of Birdserker Session IPA soon too, since Son Of Birdserker is made using the 2nd mash runnings from Birdserker Triple IPA.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
