Founder’s Dank Wood is the 3rd in their Barrel Aged series for 2018, and for that third release, they went with a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Red IPA. It’s a bourbon barrel aged version of their 2017 release – reDANKulous, which as a red IPA, it should be right in my wheel house, as far as IPAs go.
Founder’s commercial description for Dank Wood is: “What do you get when a big, bold imperial red IPA meets an oak bourbon barrel? A palate stunner that’ll send your senses spinning or, as we like to call it, Dankwood. Rich caramel notes emerge from the depths of the IPA, highlighting strong malt character while the bourbon barrel-aging develops the complexity. A dank, sticky and slightly sweet sipper, Dankwood is the perfect alchemy of wood and hops.”
Where does it fall in the series so far? Watch and see.

This is my first non-Michigan beer review! Thanks to viewer Ryan Walsh, he tipped me off that Stone was looking for YouTube beer reviewers to give their Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout the fair and honest treatment. Stone reached out and also sent along A nutbutter of the same name by Nutista.
The nutbutter by Nutista was developed in collaboration with Stone, so I’m giving that a try as well.

Today I’m diving in head first to Bell’s Hopsoulution Double IPA – this is a yearly April only release from Bell’s that a few of you have been asking about. Bell’s describes it as a remarkably drinkable Double IPA that pays tribute to one of Mother Nature’s finest creations, as several hop varietals combine for massive aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and pine. A mild caramel malt character and dry finish provide balance. Stay tuned to see!

The Mitten Brewing Company in Grand Rapids is probably one of my favorite breweries to hang out in, every time I’m on the west side of the state, I make it a point to stop in and check out what’s on tap. I was really surprised and happy when I was able to get my hands on Country Strong, their first commercially distributed release. Country Strong is a 7.2% American IPA that captures a lot of what I like in an IPA. What are those? Watch and find out!
