8 Wired Brewing Co. by Fresh Hopwired 2018

Hamish S. is drinking a Fresh Hopwired 2018 by 8 Wired Brewing Co.

One of the all time great IPAs (in fresh or normal versions), which has lost its lustre over time. Enjoyable but does not stand out anymore.

Boneface by Sabotage

Hamish S. is drinking a Sabotage by Boneface

A big IPA that promised much (their Unit IPA is top) but did not quite hit the mark. Still a good beer but not as good as I hoped.

8 Wired Brewing Co. by Superdank

Hamish S. is drinking a Superdank by 8 Wired Brewing Co.

A nice IPA that delivers with big hop dankness and big bitterness at the end. Not my fave 8W IPA but only b/c they have set such high stds.

Bach Brewing by HOPSMACKER Double IPA

Hamish S. is drinking a HOPSMACKER Double IPA by Bach Brewing

DIPA that ticks all the boxes. Plenty of hops and solid malt backbone. Reminds me of Ballast Pt Dorado but better as booze is well hidden.
