Brew Dog Punk IPA

I got punked. This beer is not worth a detour, not worth the press, not worth the money. Not worth any more words....

    Go with Russian River Pliny the Elder if you can. It's a great IPA (double IPA to be more exact).

      Now that's more like it. Classic American new world style, over the top, and great. Too bad it's really hard to get in NYC.

        Not sure if the shipping will break the bank, but www.hitimewine.net has lots of Pliny in stock.

      Yep. A barely average IPA when I had it and the not worth the extra cost. It doesn't hold a candle to tons of American IPAs that are available all over the country. The Physics amber is a little better but not much. I'm wary of trying their other beers that my local shop has for "only" $5.99/bottle or $10 or so for the Paradox imperial stout.

        Whew, it's not me. Here in NY there a bit more than 5.99, even so it's a lot of scratch for average brew.
