HOPOLOGY.jpgThe Boston Beer Co. has a new mix pack for hopheads.

Samuel Adams IPA Hop-ology Variety 12-Pack, a celebration of hops, contains two 12-ounce bottles each of the following six beers: Latitude 48 IPA (an India pale ale), Third Voyage (a double IPA), Dark Depths (a Baltic IPA), Tasman Red (a red IPA), Whitewater IPA (a hybrid of an IPA and a wibier), and a brand-new beer called Grumpy Monk, a Belgian IPA. The 12-pack will retail for about $16 and is already showing up in stores.

Three of the Hop-ology beers -- Third Voyage, Tasman Red, and Dark Depths -- were previously released only in 22-ounce bottles. Getting them in the 12-ounce size is a positive development. The only drawback: The Hop-ology pack means we won't be getting the Latitude 48 IPA Deconstructed box this year.

Hopefully I'll get around to reviewing Grumpy Monk this weekend, along with another new Sam Adams beer called Porch Rocker. Watch this space next week.
