Soul Doubt IPA

Soul Doubt IPA:  At around $8 for a six-pack, this newly distributed IPA is worth a guzzle.

Following the end of the bullshit “Three-tier system” of alcohol distribution in the state of Texas, which ended in June of 2013 (next victim should be Texas’ archaic Blue Laws, fucking Puritans), comes a canned IPA from Freetail Brewing Co. Soul Doubt IPA is Freetail’s great first attempt at canning their signature IPA as they had previously only been able to provide it via tap at their brewhouse locations in Austin and San Antonio, Texas.


I don’t know much about beer making (tried once, failed miserably), but I’m sure as shit that it’s hard to make a great tasting IPA in a can as opposed to draft or bottle, and for a canned microbrew IPA, this beer has to be one of the best I’ve tried. Soul Doubt IPA has just the right amount of hops, goes down smooth and is reasonably priced at about $8 for a sixer. Only bad thing I have to say about this beer is that the solid plastic rings holding the six-pack together are hard as hell to pull off when you want to grab a beer, but I guess they are the hippie (Austin hippie) ones that save turtles or some shit because they are not your typical soft plastic six-pack rings.

I wish I could tell you more about the beer’s complex flavors, where the hops come from and how Freetail makes it, but the only expertise I have with beer is drinking it. Take it from a functioning alcoholic who will try pretty much any beer at least once: grab a six pack of Soul Doubt IPA the next time you can’t decide what you want to drink and you’re standing in the beer isle looking lost and thirsty.
