Barrel Aged IPAs don’t seem to always be a big hit, but I don’t know if until today, I’ve tried a Double IPA aged in Gin Barrels. Today, I’m taking a look at the appropriately named “Sippin’ on Gin Barrel Juice” double IPA from Grand Armory Brewing in Grand Haven, Michigan. So does gin barrel aging work with a double IPA? Watch to find out!
This breview 4 u is the lastest Hazy IPA from Griffin Claw Brewing Company. The last hazy beer that I’ve had from Griffin Claw was Nawt a Cawp, which was an east coast IPA. This time Haze Force is a full fledged hazy IPA, but does that mean it’s a NE IPA? Watch and find out!
Upper Hand Brewery might not be a brewery that you’ve heard of, but they have a heck of a pedigree. Upper Hand is a division of Bell’s and was founded by Larry Bell himself, with the mission of trying to brew beers with a lot of personality of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. So since this is an IPA, is it going to be like Bell’s Two Hearted? Watch to find out more!
Today I’m gonna briefly get into the difference between wet and dry hopping, talk about clowns smashing cake in your kid’s face on their birthday, and Founder’s Harvest Ale, a wet-hopped IPA. What makes wet-hopping so great, and where can you find that clown? Watch to find out!
This right here… is an anomaly – it is the first ever non-sour IPA that Jolly Pumpkin has ever released. If you don’t believe me that it’s a non-sour IPA and that it’s from Jolly Pumpkin, you can take a gander at the label for yourself. This was released exclusively at Jolly Pumpkin’s Dexter Taproom during the Zwanze Day 2018 celebration, which yours truly attended. Keep your eyes open for my first ever Beer Fest Vlog at Zwanze Day, which should be coming out in the next few days. In the meantime, watch this review and get my impressions on Jolly Pumpkin’s first ever non-sour IPA!
I feel like there aren’t that many more firsts, style wise, for this channel, but today I have a brand spanking new beer style, and it’s the Brut IPA. Today’s Brut IPA comes to us from Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids, Michigan – and it’s Champion Brut. Brut’s are more known in the champagne world, but in the IPA world, they’re known for having a very dry finish due to the yeasts that are being used. So sit back, relax, have a brut IPA and watch this review!
White Flame Brewing Company is a brewery I’ve been eyeing for a while – and while I was travelling to the west side of the state, I stopped in a bottle shop to see what kind of goodies I could get my hands on, I noticed this striking White Flame can. Mo’Peez looks much like a Sunkist orange pop label, and it’s smash IPA heritage really had me licking my chops.
First time brewery on the channel today! River’s Edge Brewing Company in Milford, Michigan has been around since 2018, and within the last year just started releasing 22oz bombers, and now cans too. Today I have their session IPA, GROK. At 4.4%, how tasty can it be? Stay tuned to find out!
Dark Horse hasn’t made enough of an appearance on this channel, so I thought today I’d start to remedy that by drinking not one, but two of their beers. Today I’m taking a look at Crooked Tree and Double Crooked Tree – an IPA and Double IPA respectively. Obviously these are two pretty different beers, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a favorite. Which one is it, and which is your favorite?
Today I have a “Juicy” IPA from Big Lake Brewing in Holland, Michigan – Breakwall IPA. This is the first time I’ve ever seeen this beer, and as there was no date on the can, I’m not sure if it’s new, old or maybe limited, but – this is labelled as a Juicy IPA, so is this another New England Style IPA, or does it lean more on the IPA side?
