Massive Triple Crossing drop at the best beer store in the DMV region this Friday, approximately eight cans and one bottle.

How do you like Triple Crossing's IPA's compared to The Veil's? If you work for Paste Magazine, I already know your answer.

I've been to both Triple Crossing locations and had a couple of their beers here in DC, but I've paid way more attention to the Veil and only had cans by the Veil. I'm not sure if that's because the Veil does more hype and I follow it, or if they're actually better.

Edit: I once brought home a four pack of a Berliner from TC, but never any IPA's.

so are they going to do one per customer, or will they let the first duded scoop up all nine beers?

and i'd hardly call one-and-a-half sixers a "massive drop".

TBH, it's been a long time since I've had a Veil IPA that's blown my mind. I took a big step back from chasing every single IPA in 2019 as let's be honest, they all taste pretty similar. I have no interest in triples which seem to be a lot of Veil beers (and aslin).

All of the ipa's I have had from TC have been above average or really good.

It is quite possible that she once sat in that very chair.

Yeah, 6-8% is my IPA sweet spot. I've never been a fan of the TIPA. We make it to Richmond once or twice a year, so not much Veil here either.

NRGs taplist in NYC is pretty amazing. I can only imagine the space ratio being completely blown out of the water up there.

To be fair, NY as a state basically rips food from Spaceís kidís mouth. I imagine he melts if he gets too close to the state line by accident.

I'm not sure what your joke is, but in reality whenever I go back to my home state, I get free home cooked meals.

And yes, nice tap list. Good to see Colonel Engert fleecing the city slickers in his home state.
