RVA IPA 13-September, 2013 by Tripp A big thank you to Hardywood for hosting tonight’s dinner for the local hops growers who contributed to this year’s RVA IPA. I prefer porters over IPAs but this is fantastic! I love the sweet, caramel finish. Author: Tripp I'm an incessantly curious anthropologist who likes wet dogs, dirty hands, freshly baked bread, and a decent bottle of wine. I've lived a fantastic life.
