Did my own double IPA face-off for beer week. The guys from Colorado’s Oskar Blues had their new Gubna DIPA on tap at Time and in cans at the all-can and tap-no-bottle “Bar” next door.
Later that night I met the brewers from Ballast Point (two years in a row now) at Lucky 7 and got lucky enough to try their #1 rated Sculpin IPA on tap.
The winner? I don’t remember.
Kidding. Sculpin, but only be a hair. Good stuff. They’re bottling it year round now. It cost around $15 for a 22 oz bottle around here but only $8 in San Diego according to them. I saw Gubna for $15 a 4-pack in NJ. Ouch.
