San Diego Beer Week is here! While Beer Week technically starts today, we kicked off our SDBW festivities last night with the Blind IPA Challenge at Blind Lady Ale House. It was our first time trying BLAH's annual blind taste challenge, and while we expected it to be difficult, I was a little surprised (and humbled) by how tough it really was for us!
Our flight of 6 IPAs (I believe they are 4 oz. pours, but I wouldn't bet my life on it) came with the list of IPAs and blanks to fill out our guesses. The IPAs in the flight are:
- Stone IPA
- GreenFlash West Coast
- AleSmith IPA
- Ballast Point Big Eye
- Mission IPA
- Societe Dandy
But the actual order in the flight is a mystery. We entered our answers, but we aren't very confident in our final list. The blind IPA challenge is still going until 6pm this evening, so if you're in San Diego you should ditch work a little early and give it a try!
