Beer Valley Brewing - Leafer Madness IPA
Okay you dirty, stoner hippies, this bud is for you. Shitty marketing ploy aside, this Imperial IPA gets the job done at 9% ABV. The only reservation I have is that the malts are just to damn strong on the initial hit. Once you are halfway you don't really notice anymore, mostly because of all the whiskey you had earlier, but it still left a poor taste in my mouth. They advertise a butt load of hops but you could fool me. I thought Oregon had a strangle hold on killer IPAs but I realized Beer Valley Brewing is closer to Idaho than Portland. Idaho beer sucks ass. Also for the record the real beer valley is the Willamette dickheads. But overall this was a well done brew that will satisfy both the most elite palate and yours, junkie. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 due to the excessive malt action. Drink it.
