Old Nation Brewing’s Greenstone – An American Pale Ale

On Today’s video, I’m reviewing Greenstone – an American IPA with a little different flavor, and the last beer in Old Nation Brewing’s New Orthodox IPA series that I haven’t gotten to yet. I already had the opportunity to review Boss Tweed, M-43 and Boxer NE IPA. It’s the end of an era, and I also mention my thoughts on selling tickets to Old Nation’s Boss Tweed Double NE IPA can release coming up this week.

Rochester Mills – Juice Bigalow, Hop Gigalo – NE IPA Review

Today I’m checking out Rochester Mills “Juice Bigalow, Hop Gigalo”, a 6% abv juicy american IPA. With the recent surge of new England style IPA’s, this is another in that style (although they call it an american IPA.) While Rochester Mills is probably most known for their stouts, I’m really intrigued and interested in trying out how they spin the NE IPA trend. Does it meet expectation!? Watch and see!
