We thought, we fought, we took votes, we did blind tastings, we did sniff-tests and lab-tests, color-tests, speed-tests, and intelligence-tests. After months of conversation with our friends at Ravenna & Alvarado Street, nostalgia for the bygone days of a more see-through beer had won – or so we thought. This year, 3-Way IPA is a West Coast AND New England-Style IPA!
