The Beer I Drank Today: Hop Hearty

The Beer I Drank Today: New Glarus Hop Hearty

Style: India Pale Ale

Color: a west coast IPA

white, foamy, nice a west coast IPA

Aroma: hoppy floral a west coast IPA

Flavor: hop-induced bitter deliciousness a west coast IPA

Context: We sat down tonight to watch TV, something we never do. The show was Lost, so the beer had to be an IPA. Luckily, there was an IPA in my New Glarus stash. I had considered live blogging the show, but the episode was so good that I could barely concentrate on blogging. The beer was the only thing that could tear me away.

Would I recommend this beer to you? Yes. It's not the most powerful or overwhelmingly hoppy IPA I've ever had, but it is as solid an IPA as anything from the west coast, in case you couldn't figure that out.

Do not liveblog 'Lost''d regret it. Watch out for the easter-eggs they plant instead. BTW, I totally called "time travel" as the island's secret over a year ago. I rule. (j/k)
