Rochester Mills – Juice Bigalow, Hop Gigalo – NE IPA Review

Today I’m checking out Rochester Mills “Juice Bigalow, Hop Gigalo”, a 6% abv juicy american IPA. With the recent surge of new England style IPA’s, this is another in that style (although they call it an american IPA.) While Rochester Mills is probably most known for their stouts, I’m really intrigued and interested in trying out how they spin the NE IPA trend. Does it meet expectation!? Watch and see!

Ellison Crescent Fresh IPA Review

Ellison Brewery in East Lansing has been generating a buzz, but until now I’ve been unable to find them in cans in my area. I’m glad that I found Crescent Fresh IPA, because it’s one of the most intriguing IPAs that I’ve had in quite some time and is a totally new take on the concept. Could this possibly be the best new IPA in Michigan? Watch to find out!

Shorts Psychedelic Cat Grass – Triple Hopped IPA Review

Psychedelic Cat Grass by Short’s is made and shipped as fresh as possible. The pack I picked up was actually bottled the same day I bought it. This triple hopped IPA beauty may be too piney for some fans, but it teases with enough citrus sweetness to win me over. This is my first review of a Short’s beer since their 20% sale to Lagunitas, and I’m going to be as objective as possible when reviewing their beers going forward.

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!

I can’t believe I finally found it! I’ve been stalking this beer for what feels like weeks and I was finally able to find the Passion Fruit version of Odd Side’s Dirty Dank Juice. I have to say, it was worth the wait!

And since I seem to compare every NE IPA variety against Old Nation’s M-43, you’ll have to watch to see how it stacks up!
