While I keep trying IPAs and Hazy this and bitter that, the one thing we need more of are craft malt liquors! Well, today I’m bringing an old favorite of mine to the channel, and that is Odd Side Ale’s Laughing Clown. I hadn’t drank a malt liquor in quite some time before I had this a few years back and it re-ignited my love of the style – and as Samuel Jackson says: “It’ll get ya drunk!”
I’ve always heard good things about Batch Brewing, but I never was able to make it out to their taproom. Well, when I saw that they’d be releasing a taproom exclusive beer – Rainbow Colors Blended, I figured it might be high time to get out and check it out.Rainbow Colors Blended is a double milkshake style IPA and it touts that it’s brewed with mango, passion fruit and lactose, but is it good?
In their debut canning run from a new canning line, Ascension Brewing Company in Novi has released Spool Toorf, a 9.2% New England Style IPA that uses froot loops, lactose, marshmallow and double dry hopped with galaxy and mosaic hops. Now brewing with cereal sounds like it could be good, but is it?
Bell’s limited July release for 2018 is The Oracle – a double IPA in the west coast style. This is the only beer I can think of that Bell’s makes that’s in the west coast style – when I think of Bell’s and IPAs I think of Two Hearted, which is obviously not west coast. so what do I think of the Oracle?

Urbanrest Brewing in Ferndale just celebrated their 1st anniversary and in conjuction with that celebration, they released today’s breview 4 u – Perpetual Fog. Perpetual Fog is a 7.5% double dry hopped IPA, and the thing I really appreciated about the label of this can is that they actually listed both the hops, and the malts used. Cryo Citra, Cryo Mosiac and Cryo Simcoe. Does that sound delicious? Watch my full review to get my take!
