After hopping myself out about a year ago, IPAs are once again my go to style. I’ve been all about the IBUs lately. Luckily, I can have my hops and support a local brewery, as Three Heads Brewing(3HB) has released “Too Kind”, a double IPA. Too Kind is based on “The Kind”, 3HBs flagship beer. Too Kind weighs in at 8.5% ABV and 87 IBUs. This beer features a new hop variety, Meridian, which was introduced to the market less than a year ago. (This is not the same variety that is used in The Kind). Look for a review here very soon.
This release marks the 11th beer from 3HB. Having tried only five of their beers (Java Sutra, The Kind, Skunk Black IPA, Bromigo, and Ontario Coast IPA), I was shocked that they had already released 11.
Right now, 3HB is bringing craft beer excitement to Rochester that I wish Flying Bison was bringing to Buffalo (no disrespect, just sayin’). From showcasing new hop varities to rockin’ launch parties at Lovin’ Cup, people in Rochester are excited about the now 2 year old nano-brewery. I also like the fact that these brewers are not afraid to venture off the beaten path with their styles. (Taste: Bromigo). The awesome artwork on the labels isn’t hurting their overall appeal, either. Don’t sleep on 3HB. They are making a beer for everyone and continuing to grow in popularity throughout WNY.
