Michigan’s Top 3 Double New England Style IPAs

To quote Phil Collins, “I’ve been waiting for this moment” – not for my whole life but for a while. Today I’m bringing you my top 3 Double New England Style IPAs. You might be thinking to yourself “What authority does this guy have?” Well, I’ve reviewed almost 20 Michigan New England Style IPAs in the past 8 months so I’d say I have some experience.

I’m putting Old Nation’s Boss Tweed, Witch’s Hat’s This Guy and Roak Brewing’s Flavorful Five up against each other to see which is the best so far.

If you’re interested in the individual reviews of each of these beers you can find them here:

Roak Brewing Company’s Hopgazer – New England Style IPA

After seeing my review for their New England style double IPA Flavorful Five, Roak reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in coming to the taproom to review their newest New England Style IPA Hopgazer.

I sat down with Roak’s general manager Allen Hilliker to talk about where we thought the NE IPA style was headed, the differences in NE IPAs out there, some of Roak’s future plans – and most importantly, Hopgazer!
