From the west side of Michigan, today I’m taking a look at Big Lake Brewing’s Lake Haze, which they describe as a Juicy New England Style IPA. With the weather finally breaking (now if only the rain would go away), We really need a tasty, but lighter NE IPA, and at 5.5%, Lake Haze sounds like it could fit the bill – but is it all sizzle and no steak? Stay Tuned to find out!
Huma Lupa Licious is a mainstay in the Short’s Brewing lineup, and this year they’ve released a Bourbon Barrel Aged Huma Lupa Licious! I was on the west side of the state and saw these on shelves and knew I just had to bring it home to share with you all. Stay tuned to get my impressions and watch out for a special guest star!
Odd Side’s Fruitsicles have been making their way out in the wilds, and today I have their Raspberry Blood Orange Fruitsicle. These have proven to be some of the hardest and most sought after beers lately, so I’m more than happy to report from the front lines for you. This isn’t my first rodeo with Odd Side’s fruitsicles, and hopefully it won’t be my last!
My never ending quest to try all the NE IPAs that Michigan has to offer has brought me to the new Street Artist NE IPA from Atwater Brewery in Detroit. Atwater has been around for a long time now, and proves to be a mainstay in Detroit beer – so will their newest NE IPA tickle your fancy? There are a few beers in Atwater’s lineup that I do fully enjoy – Vanilla Java Porter being the absolute head and shoulders stand out, so what do I think of the new Street Artist NE IPA? Watch and find out!
New Holland’s first Dragon’s Milk Reserve for 2018 is Cherry Chocolate, following last year’s Mocha Mint, and Salted Caramel (which I’ll link to below). In the meantime, New Holland’s commercial description for this beer is: “Introducing the next addition to our Dragon’s Milk Reserve series… Cherry Chocolate! We decided to combine these two classic flavors with the rich and creamy taste of Dragon’s Milk to create a delightfully smooth treat.”
Is it a worth addition to the Dragon’s Milk reserve line? There’s no better way to find out than to watch!
