Bell’s Two Hearted Ale

Mar 17, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

As a life-long resident of Columbus, Ohio, graduate of THE Ohio State University and die-hard Buckeye fan, I don’t freely give compliments to “that state up North.” I must begrudgingly give credit where credit is due, though, when it comes to Bell’s Brewery. All kidding aside, Bell’s produces some of the best beer around and […]

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA

Mar 08, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA is much more than just a mid-way point between the popular 60 and the 90 Minute IPAs. The Delaware-based brewery does a number of things differently with this limited-release beer to make it a truly special brew. Maple Syrup is added to the beer and it is bottle conditioned (which is another way […]

Mar 08, 2013 - Beer - 2 Comments - Standard

It looks like Stone Brewing Company already has a new batch of Enjoy By IPA ready to be bottled. Their last batch was released last week with an “Enjoy By” date of 04.01.13, and it has been widely popular for good reason; it was delicious! According to Stone’s website, this latest batch is scheduled to be bottled […]

Stone Enjoy By IPA

Mar 01, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

Any regular reader of Rough Draught knows that I am a hop-head. I absolutely love a huge, hoppy IPA. When I learned of the release date of the latest iteration of Stone Brewing Company’s Enjoy By series, there was no way I was going to pass it up. My local bottle shop, Savor Market in Clintonville, OH, […]

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA

Feb 23, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

I’m almost ashamed to admit that I had never heard of Ballast Point Brewing, much less their Sculpin IPA, prior to this tasting. My brother picked some up and, after doing some research, I realized I should have become acquainted with this brew a long time ago. Ballast Point Sculpin IPA boasts a score of 98 on […]

Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous

Feb 10, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

Sublimely Self-Righteous is a Black IPA (emphasis on BLACK!) by Stone Brewing Company. I don’t think this this beer really needs any more introduction than that. Let’s get to it. This beer is black. Jet black, even. When held up to light, there is a deep, reddish amber around the edges of the glass, but […]

Avery Brewing IPA

Jul 28, 2012 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

It’s no secret at this point that I love IPAs. Avery, however, was not a brewery that I was familiar with until very recently. I was at a local pub and they happened to have Avery IPA on tap, and since I’m always up for trying a new IPA I gave it a shot. In […]

My First Growler

Jul 18, 2012 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

I have considered myself to be a beer enthusiast for quite some time. I have tried hundreds craft beers from scores of breweries, I have studied the many styles of beer, and I have even brewed my own. However, I’ve never owned a growler, which is a must-have for any true beer enthusiast. I picked up my […]

Victory Hop Devil IPA

Mar 24, 2012 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

It’s no secret to any regular readers of this blog that was love IPA’s, and Victory Brewing Company’s Hop Devil just might top the list. This beer pours a hazy golden, amber color with plenty of creamy white head that lingers on the class quite well. The aroma full of spicy, citric hops that stings […]

Elevator Brewery Three Frogs IPA

Mar 17, 2012 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

Elevator Brewery and Draught Haus is another local brewery here in Columbus, Ohio. Three Frogs IPA is one of their many year-round offerings available on tap at the Draught Haus and bottled. My particular offering was a bottle purchased at a local grocery store. It pours a hazy amber color with about one finger of creamy, off-white head. […]
