Brewery Vivant – Champion Brut IPA – My First Brut 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 – Mo’Peez Smash IPA 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.

Dark Horse – Crooked Tree and Double Crooked Tree

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?

Motor City Brewing Works – Notorious DDH Double Rice IPA

hile they’re probably most known for their Ghettoblaster dark mild ale, Motor City Brewing Works has several other noteworthy beers. Today, I’m checking out Notorious, a double dry hopped double rice IPA, which to be perfectly frank… I haven’t been in love with IPAs that have used Rice in the past – but today is a new day an this is a new beer for me. What’s the verdict on Notorious? Is it preceded by it’s own reputation?

HOMES brewery – Drones Double IPA and Straspberry Sherbet Sour

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.

Founders Brewing – Barrel Runner Rum Barrel Aged Mosaic IPA

Barrel Runner is the 4th of Founder’s Barrel Aged series of beers in 2018, and this time it’s not a stout (KBS), a scotch ale (Backwoods Bastard), or a Red IPA (Dank Wood), but it is another IPA – and it’s not bourbon barrel aged either.  This time they went all out with a mosaic hopped IPA aged in rum barrels to give it a bit of a tropical, spiced taste.  Will Barrel Runner make you want to hide your treasure?  Is the eye patch included with the 4 pack or bomber?  Watch and see!
