Russian River Blind Pig IPA
Blind Pig IPA was first brewed at the Blind Pig Brewery (Vinnie’s first brewery in Temecula), though the original Blind Pig recipe was something that Vinnie brewed for many years as a homebrewer before brewing it commercially.
At the time, Blind Pig IPA was one of the hoppiest, if not the hoppiest IPA available anywhere, weighing in at 6.5% ABV with 92 BU’s. In 1994, it was a total hop-bomb and different from most anything commercially available at the time. In time, this and other hoppy beers earned Vinnie the nickname “The Hopfather.”
Full-bodied, very hoppy, with citrus, pine, fruity notes and a nice dry, bitter finish!
