The Ultimate IPA-off

Drinking all the IPAs . . . 

So you don’t have to.

The time, 2019. The place, Episode 11 of the Scum, Beer, and Villainy podcast. Matt and Marcel embark on the lunatic mission of drinking and rating all known IPAs.

And here are the results, thus far . . .

Check in regularly to see how your favorite IPA fared against the competition.

Just a note on tied scores and ranking: In such cases, the beer that Matt, the more generous of the raters, gives the higher rating to will prevail.

Ultimately, there are few things in the world more important than good IPAs. Right?
