hair of the dog blue dot in the glass

I recently grabbed a bomber of blue dot, a double IPA from hair of the dog, a great brewery up in portland.

  • I first had this brew on draft when I was up in portland with AP earlier this year, and it was one of my favorites of the trip.
  • the beer had a clean malt back that wasn’t overwhelming and that emphasized strong hop bitterness and citrusy hop aroma.
  • the alcohol came out a little once the beer warmed up, but it wasn’t too aggressive.  is there such a think as a sessionable double IPA?
  • also, if you get beeradvocate magazine, be sure to check out the latest issue’s article on alan sprints, brewmaster at HOTD.
