Bell’s Hopsoulution – Double India Pale Ale 2018

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!

Boatyard Brewing Company – Lake Effect Double IPA

While I’m busy digging out of this hardcore winter weather we’re seeing, I took the time to check out Boatyard Brewing Company’s Lake Effect Double IPA. Lake Effect Double IPA is one of the maltiest double IPAs I’ve ever tasted. Where most beers in this style usually try and smash your teeth out with piney hoppiness, Boatyard goes in a different direction and I find that to be extremely intriguing and refreshing.

Bell’s Hopslam 2018 Review

On Today’s Breview 4 U, I’m checking out Bell’s first big release of the year – their double IPA Hopslam. Hopslam is a 10% double IPA that really fuses together the midwest style IPA with the West Coast IPA, combining it’s sweet opening notes with this piney and bitter finish. It’s probably one of Bell’s most anticipated seasonal releases year after year and I’m going to dive into it today. I hope you brought your taste buds with you!

HOMES Brewery – Crumple Double IPA Review – Haze for Days

HOMES dropped this can release of Crumple on 11.22.2017, and since then I’ve been anxiously awaiting bringing this one to you. To my knowledge this is the first time that it was released into the wild either as a can or on tap. HOMES really does IPA well, and I think they fit some sneaky NE IPA without really calling it that. I dug their Same Same Different, so how does Crumple fare? Stay tuned to find out!
