Beer in a Scotch glass – Green Flash’s Green Bullet

If you’re going to drink yuppie beer, you may as well drink it from a Scotch glass.

Holy cows, I love this brew! Another of the seemingly “unfiltered” variety, it looks like there’s a tiny universe of tasty particles floating about in every glass. Green Flash classifies this as a Triple IPA. I’m the last person to know what that means, except for the following:

IPAs typically weigh in around 6-7% alcohol
DIPAs tend to hover between 7.2-9-ish%
– The Green Bullet – a TIPA – registers 10.1%, which means I’m starting to get super chatty. Apologies to my increasingly patient girlfriend.

I’ll spare you the verbosity and simply note that Green Bullet brims with flavor, character, and West Coast style – on steroids. Yet another staple in our fridge.

You, too, can get a bit tipsy after a couple of Green Bullet TIPAs from Green Flash Brewing.

Another Beer of the Week consumed in a glass intended for booze: Ska Brewing’s Modus Hoperandi IPA.

Kudos to Jeff, Melody, and Mitchell for harping on me to try this one – it’s easily one of my go-to hoppy beers, and it’s become one of my favorites of any style.

Beer in a Scotch glass – Lagunitas’ a Little Sumpin’ Wild

If you’re going to drink yuppie beer, you may as well drink it from a Scotch glass.

Why does beer taste better in a Scotch glass? I have no idea. The glass is smaller, and you think you’re getting more beer because you have to keep pouring to finish a 12-ounce bottle? Scotch is expensive and it makes you feel classy when you drink anything from a Scotch glass? You’re Ron Burgundy?

I’ve wanted to try this one for a while, but whenever I go to the store, I see “a Little Sumpin’ Wild” next to “a Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’“, and I always opt for the latter. Luckily, you can’t go wrong with either. Cheers to Lagunitas… And one more Lagunitas brew to seek out is the Lagunitas SUCKS (Brown Sugga’ Substitute Ale). If you see this on the shelf, just buy it. It’s a kick-ass seasonal DIPA, so don’t pass it up.
