Default I asked my wife to pick me up some beer

Well, on my way home I don't pass any liquor stores. ( in Maryland we have one stop liquor stores. We can't buy anything in the grocery store or anything like that.(FYI)). So I thought I would ask my wife to pick me something up.

I told her to pick up a high abv IPA. Something that is very hoppy if possible.

She came home with a beer from Dominion brewing company. "HopMountain". I guess she just assumed it would be very hoppy because of the label. Well.....when I read the label I realized it was a pale ale. And it was more malty then hoppy. It should be called MaltMountain......

Not a bad thing! Just not what I was in the mood for. Also I wasn't really a fan. That may have been because I wanted an ipa.

Anyone ever deceived by a beer label?

Ah man, I look at that every time I go to Trader Joe's. The jug is awesome, I had hoped the contents were equally as awesome.

The contents leave a lot to be desired. The jug is nice. Unfortunately, the screw top neck isn't compatible with growler tops.

Seriously...
I had a Terrapin Hopsexecutioner and I think it was also more of a pale ale than IPA.

My favorite thing about Mississippi Mud is that the cap can replace the cap on a Carlo Rossi jug.

Bud Dry apparently actually had wet beer in the bottle. BMC marketing lies again.
