Update! The Squall Double IPA has been consumed and turned out to pretty decent, though a bit mild for a DPIA. I wouldn't place it in the same weight class as the big California Double IPAs such Pliny the Elder or Stone's Ruination. I guess I'm just a chauvinist when it comes West Coast brewing styles. Wine snobs may dismiss Cali wines, but our beers are pretty unbeatable.
As Chrontendo Episode 39 is prepared for editing, I thought I'd share this tangentially related beer offering.
This is a Double IPA from Dogfish Head, a rather media-savvy brewer from Delaware, (they had their own reality show and an article in Smithsonian.) The Double IPA is the most quintessentially West Coast-y of beers, so I'm a bit skeptical of the results. Hopefully, it will taste plenty angsty and bitter. And maybe a little bitchy?
