Beer #2960 is a double ipa brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand. A disappointment from Garage Project but still a pretty good beer. This is an IPA that, with an 8% ABV, isn’t hidden all that well. It’s…

Beer #2958 is an indian pale ale brewed by 8 Wired in Blenheim, New Zealand. This is definitely hazy and full of gunk as I call it. This is an above average IPA, certainly juicy and tropical with grapefruit and…

Beer #2894 is a double ipa brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand. No way is this 9.5%! The ABV is certainly hidden well. There’s caramel and tea, oddly, at the forefront with some fruit, though can’t say what,…
