    Awesome. 'Tisn't the season to be drinking IPAs, but still tralalalala exciting stuff! Now, just make sure Srigim Brewery's Ugly Indian IPA is one of those beers being judged. Can't wait for the results -- this blog just keeps getting better and better.

    1. The Ugly Indian plays hard-to-get, but the Srigim Brewery (Ronen) promises to get her over here. She'll be up against stiff competition, though.

      You don't expect us to wait till the summer to drink IPAs, do you?

  2. Hey Doug! So, when will we see the results?

    Make sure you get your hands on Dubim's Arakis (it might be hard to find) and Dancing Camel's American IPA - I think they're the two best examples of the style in Israel

    1. Hi Anon, (wish I knew who you are),
      We had the Dancing Camel's American IPA (now called Patriot), but Arakis will have to wait until we do a second round of Israeli IPAs. Thanks for pointing that out. Stay tuned for the results which will soon be published.

    2. Hi Doug, sorry if i'm being THAT GUY! but....
      The Patriot by Dancing Camel is indeed the new version of the American Pale Ale they had earlier, it is my favorite by that brewery but sadly it is not an IPA. they had an "IPA" before but it has been changed to "The Old Papa" (honestly because it's never a real IPA in the first place).

      and too bad you skipped on the Arakis, it's a part of the "One month" series so you might be waiting a long time for that wonderful beer to come back (hopefully it'll come back soon enough)


Thanks for your comment. L'chayim!
