Pints & Purls #38: DirtWolf Double IPA

This is the thirty-eighth in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!  None of the breweries or yarn companies are compensating me – these are just my opinions on my personal experiences!

…………………………………..IMG_6742

Brew: DirtWolf Double IPA

Brewer: Victory

Malts: Imported two-row malts

Hops: Whole flower Citra, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic

IBU:

ABV: 8.7%IMG_6746

Flavors: This is my kind of beer – floral and slightly sweet in that way only delicious IPA’s can be.  Full flavored with slightly assertive bits that pique your interest.

Knit Pairings:  Because this beer is full and ever-so-slightly assertive, I’d pair it with some knitting that is wholesome and comforting if slightly indulgent.

Pints & Purls Edition 30: Hop Ranch

This is the thirtieth in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!  None of the breweries or yarn companies are compensating me – these are just my opinions on my personal experiences!

…………………………………..IMG_3004

Brew: Hop Ranch

Brewer: Victory

Malts: Pilsner

Hops: Mosaic, Azacca

IBU:

ABV: 9%IMG_3005

Flavors: Full-flavored with lots of sweet, citrus-y notes and plenty of floral character, this beer has bitter on the undertone but the aftertaste is smooth and fruity.

Knit Pairings: This beer would be best paired with a knit that is indulgent but not out-of-reach.  Something that you treat yourself to every couple of projects, something rich and full of character but if you had too much of this project/technique/yarn you might lose interest, a little at a time is best.
