Recently, on what was supposed to be a laid back Friday night, we instead got together with Cousin Sip and the evening turned into the usual drink-a-thon one would expect from the Sip Advisor. This was thanks in part to Cousin Sip providing me with this delicious Fuggles & Warlock Brewing beverage.
The Super 8-Bit IPA is a very good beer, plus I love the classic video game theming and homage to the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) with the beer’s label design. The 7% ABV, 68 IBUs brew actually uses eight different hops, so the name is more than just a gimmick.
This release is part of Fuggles & Warlock’s Experimental IPA Series and has in fact been given the high distinction of kicking off the side project. Outside of these products, Fuggles & Warlock have previously released a few IPAs, such as the Raiden Black Rye IPA, Destiny IPA, and Shiva Session White IPA.
I’m still waiting for my first visit to Fuggles & Warlock’s new tasting room in Richmond, as my best efforts over the past few weekends have been thwarted by the nefarious Mrs. Sip. Don’t get me wrong, she wants to go just as bad as I do, but other distractions seem to keep getting in the way of our aspirations.
