Hair of the Dog - Blue Dot Double IPA
We are all familiar with Hair of the Dog's usual suspects (Adam, Fred, Greg, and Ruth), but Blue Dot is their new 2009 spring release. Hot damn! Now this beer is a perfect example of what a double IPA should taste like. The malty hit is as smooth as a high priced hooker and the hops finish it off like a solid reach-a-round. Hair of the Dog's brews are usually off the charts concerning ABV but this one registers at a drinkable 7%: a far cry from either Adam or Fred. I am so in love with this beer I am getting excited just writing about it. I have to give it my first 5 out of 5. Drink the shit out of it and then ask it to marry you.
