Transient is always highly regarded and highly sought after. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve had from them, but I’ve yet to be wowed. Does Rainbows and Waterfalls prove to be the one that wows me, or does the price tag outweigh the enjoyment?
Last year, Rochester Mills released their first attempt at a New England Style IPA – Juice Bigalow. This year they’re back with a sequel – a double New England style IPA called Juice Deuce Uncut. For this effort, it clocks in at 8.5% ABV and tries to differentiate itself from last years beer. Will the Juice Deuce bomb, or become a blockbuster? Watch and see!
I took a look in my fridge and realized that I had two different batches of Old Nation Brewing’s Double New England Style IPA – Boss Tweed. That got me thinking… does freshness in an NE IPA really matter? Both were sitting in my fridge since they were purchased, one was just newer than the other. How much difference could it really make, and would I be able to notice a difference if I tried them side by side?
Full Earth from Old Nation Brewing is their newest Double NE IPA, and I would think a direct competitor to their original DNEIPA, Boss Tweed. I think it was only a few weeks from time I’d heard this was being released to it hitting shelves, and I was wondering how it would set itself apart from Boss Tweed. With Boss Tweed taking a bit of a brew, is it a good substitute? In today’s video, I not only review Full Earth, but I also do a full *scientific side by side between the two – and I make a desert island declaration. Watch for more!
Going back to mid-April, I took a trip out to Boston and was able to check out Trillium Brewing Company’s downtown location. Today’s review is of their Permutation 33, which was one of an assorted 4 pack that I was able to pick up. If you’d like to see more out of michigan reviews, let me know in the comments down below and I’ll see what I can get out there for you all!
Witch’s Hat is a popular brewery that I always hear people talking about when they talk about Southeastern Michigan beer. I was finally able to pick up their Double New England Style IPA, “This Guy” the week between Christmas and New Year, and I’ve been really anxiously awaiting bringing it to the channel ever since. I’ve been back to Witch’s Hat since picking up and recording this video and it wasn’t in stock. Good news is that it seems that it’s become a regular on tap there. If you’re in South Lyon or even driving on 96 and you’re in that area, do yourself a favor and stop by Witch’s Hat and give them a try.
Big thanks to Eric Pfeifer for the tip!

I have to admit, at first I gave the original Slurm a good review. But now that I’ve had several different NE IPA’s, I feel like Shorts really missed the mark with that beer. Well only two months later their back to try to redeem themselves (I’m sure they’re doing this just to win me back) with the Double New England IPA – Slurm Lord. How does it stack up? Watch below to find out!
