From the seasonal fervor surrounding beers like Bell’s Hopslam, Troegs Nugget Nectar, and Avery Maharaja, D.C. beer drinkers have an obsession for lip-smacking double IPAs. Now we have another addition to fawn over: Oskar Blues Gubna.
The 10% abv double IPA just hit stores and should be around through the summer — check @Beerspotter on Twitter for updates on where to find it. It’s going to be in the big-boy price range, at around $15 a four-pack. Usually I’d wait until trying a beer to mention it here on Y&H. But it’s made by the folks that bought you Dale’s Pale Ale, and the recipe includes rye malt, which should give it a dry, spicy kick. Also it’s before noon for chrisssake. A man’s got to be sober once in a while.
