A Galaxy IPA Far Far Away! (video)

Big Muddy Galaxy IPA 7.5% ABV I set my rocket ship to ludicrous speed and head out to a far and distant land in search of the ever illusive Galaxy hopped IPA. See this galaxy quest has me combing the beer universe in search of something I can rest my hat on and finally have a galaxy hopped beer I fully endorse. That trek brings me to my newest mission, Big Muddy Brewery Galaxy IPA. The name says it all but will Galaxy IPA have the bigger Schwartz than the 8 Wired Hopwired IPA that I reviewed two weeks ago?

Bloodline Blood Orange IPA Knocks It Out of The Grove

Every question I have can be answered in a few short swipes by the device in my pocket. So whenever I’m shopping for a beer and I see something I’ve never seen before, I look it up. Before you throw your fist up and bludgeoned me to death with your objective hate hear me out.

8 Wired Brewery Hopwired IPA 7.3% ABV It was on faithful day during the Fall of 2012 that I grabbed the bag of hops to add to my wort boil, I cut it open and it hit me like hard like the Lakers 17-25 record(as of 1/24/13). One wafting smell of that passion fruit goodness rafting through the air and exciting my neurons changed my life and my perception of what hops should and could be. See where I”m from Passion Fruit is widely used in everything from drinks, to dessert and to find a hop that embodies all that...

Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest (video)

Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest 6.7% ABV By chance I happen to come across Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest as I was walking out of the beer store. It was a bottle I hadn’t seen before and I had recently helped my wife brew a batch of beer containing Galaxy hops from Australia so I thought this might be the perfect beer to get a preview of what “Down Unda” hops taste like. While I think Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest doesn’t smack me over the head with flavors I’ve never had before, it does provide me with some great flavor...
