Rainbow Warrior is an IPA from Pileated Brewing Company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Pileated Brewing is self distributing in some stores in the Ann Arbor area, and Rainbow Warrior is one of their Flagships.

I’ve got a double feature here today, both from HOMES brewery in Ann Arbor, Michigan! HOMES Drones double IPA and Straspberry Sherbet were released a few weeks back, just before their first inaugural Nucleate festival. Drones is a DDH DIPA with Vic Secret and Cryo Citra hops, and Straspberry Sherbet is a kettle sour brewed with lactose, and blended with Strawberries and Raspberries. HOMES continues to churn out phenomenal beer, and these are just two more examples of that.
I’ve brought a few HOMES beers to the channel, and HOMES Guava Sherbet is the newest of their Sherbet Lactose Sour series. This review came out of a poll I put up on twitter asking what beer I should review next – it was neck and neck until the end and Guava Sherbet was one of the winners. How does HOMES Guava Sherbet fare against the others in the sherbet series? Watch to find out!
