Old Nation – Woodshed Pilot Series Brut IPA Review

Old Nation’s Brut IPA is part of their Woodshed Pilot Series, and is their first Brut IPA. It uses the same recipe as Old Nation’s extremely popular M-43, but it’s further refined through a brut brewing technique – the technique results in a brut IPA very low residual sugar and a low carb beer. It sounds like a dream, but how does it taste at 7% ABV? Well, that’s why you’re here, so sit back and find out!

Head 2 Head – Boss Tweed vs. Reclassified

In today’s video I’m putting Old Nation’s Boss Tweed in a side by side comparison with Ascension Brewing Company’s Reclassified. Both New England Style Double IPAs are going head 2 head to see which comes out on top. Ever since first trying this new version of Reclassified about 6 months ago, I knew it was a perfect competitor for Boss Tweed, which has been my favorite New England style Double IPA to date. Which one comes out on top? Watch to find out!

Old Nation – Electron Brown Double Brown Ale

Today I’m looking at Electron Brown from Old Nation Brewing in Williamston, Michigan.  You probably know Old Nation for their New England Style IPAs like Boss Tweed, M-43 or even Cart Horse and Greenstone.  But, Old Nation didn’t start off just doing NE IPAs.  I’m going to look today at a tried and true style, the Brown Ale, and in the case of Electron Brown, it’s a espresso brewed double brown ale.  Does this brown ale stay mild and smooth, or does it have another trick up it’s sleeve?  Watch and learn!

Old Vs. New – Boss Tweed

I took a look in my fridge and realized that I had two different batches of Old Nation Brewing’s Double New England Style IPA – Boss Tweed. That got me thinking… does freshness in an NE IPA really matter? Both were sitting in my fridge since they were purchased, one was just newer than the other. How much difference could it really make, and would I be able to notice a difference if I tried them side by side?

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!
