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!

Head 2 Head – Michigan Malty IPAs

This Head 2 Head is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now. When I tried the BBA Huma Lupa Licious against the regular version, it got me thinking. Could Huma Lupa Licious be my favorite malty Michigan IPA? Is it really better than Bell’s Two Hearted? What if we threw Blackrocks 51K IPA in there too? Well, on today’s video I do just that – I put them all to the test in my new “Head 2 Head” series.

Which other beers would you like to see go Head 2 Head?

Pigeon Hill Brewing – Barrel Aged Grapefruit Renny Double IPA

Pigeon Hill Brewing in Muskegon has really been batting 1.000 in my book, as everything from them that I’ve had so far has been fantastic. Today I’m going to look at their Barrel Aged Grapefruit Renny double IPA, and I’m going to try it next to the regular everyday Grapefruit Renny DIPA to see what the differences are between them. Both of them are 9.4% so they’re sure to pack a punch.

My BBA Huma Lupa Licious Review is here:

Old Nation – Full Earth – Boss Tweed pt. 2?

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!

Oddside – Shadynasty’s IPA – A New Dank Juice?

Odd Side Ales didn’t open a club with their gambling money, but they did create a beer and named it after their star attraction – Shadynasty. Shadynasty’s is a 7% IPA, that beer advocate calls a double IPA for some reason. I’m not sure who’s right, but that doesn’t stop me from drinking it and bringing the truth to you!
