Starr Hill “India Pale Ale”

Posted: February 2, 2012 in IPA

It’s no secret that I am biased to the Northwest beers, I just think we make a better product.  The beers I have had on the East Coast are good, but I prefer it back home.  In the mid 90’s Mark Thompson returned to Virginia from Portland Oregon having learned a few things about artisanal brewing.  He began brewing in Charlottesville and has done very well.  They have won quite a few awards including one from the world beer cup for their Irish Stout.  The IPA is very good.  It isn’t to hoppy, but at the same time hoppy enough.  The flavors balance quite well.  It is for sure a beer worth trying and if this one was so good and hasn’t won awards like their other beers I am excited to try some more varieties.  Try Starr Hill if you get a chance.
