Tonight my neighbor Jonathan and I tasted a mirco from a brewery that neither of us have heard of before. Of course that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been around for a decent amount of time or that it isn’t a good brewery. We were out getting some domestics to sip on during MNF(Monday Night Football). I saw an IPA from a Sisters, Oregon brewery called Three Creeks Brewing. Sisters is located southeast of Portland about 3 hours in Central Oregon in the Cascade Mountain range surrounded by the beautiful Three Sisters volcanic peaks.
Alright enough with the geography lesson. The featured IPA: Hoodoo Voodoo IPA. Coming in at a 6 ABV and 82 IBU it ranges with averages as far as the ABV is concerned. It has a light head, typical IPA fruity smell, bold amber in color and goes down smooth. The aftertaste curiously lacks. However, there isn’t anything that stands out about it. Nothing spectacular to make me say “wow this some-bitch is effen good!” I have to say that I was looking forward to tasting it because it’s from a new Oregon brewery to me but I was a bit disappointed and my neighbor agreed. Although it is a good IPA there’s nothing special about it except maybe its name. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s still a good micro. Gotta love it. Cheers.
