It’s time for some IPAs! In episode 243 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder crack open two different IPAs, one from Illinois and one from California. We’ll see how they stack up against each other and if those west coast IPAs deserve all the hype. Kicking this off Brad and Ken open one of their favorites, the Ballast Point Brewing Company’s Sculpin IPA. Ballast Point hasn’t been in the Chicago market that long but it’s a real treat to have this beer around town, especially now that it’s in cans. This 7.0 % ABV IPA packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Next the guys open the Revolution Citra Hero. This 7.5 % IPA has multiple additions of Citra in the brew kettle and then dry-hopped with one pound per barrel of Citra. This series of beers from Revolution are great and you can’t go wrong picking up this one or even Crystal Hero.

Now go grab yourself an IPA! Thanks for watching the Hop Cast. Cheers!

Why do they call this a yard of ale? After you drink one, you’re passed out in your yard.
