Well dammit if we can’t just be happy with our regular ol’ IPAs, brewers have been adding all sorts of stuff to our favorite hopdrinks. This show features five IPAs…with a TWIST! Might it be possible that we built this show around a “ringer”? Perhaps. But all of the beers more than hold their own, and they bring out an unusual array of distractions: Björk, WiiKush, Offspring beers, and BagelFest. We also challenge each other to come up with a list of unusual ingredients that have yet to be used in IPAs – so brewers take note! Cream bomb: out.
Middle Brow Beer Co. – Karin (Belgian IPA + farmhouse ale blend)
Like Minds Brewing Co. – Archimedes (IPA + Brettanomyces)
Burnt Hickory Brewery – Killboy Powerhead (IPA + orange & vanilla)
Stone Brewing – Mocha IPA (DIPA + cacao & coffee)
Other Half/Half Acre – Rainbow Never Ends (DIPA + oats, rice flakes, rice syrup, & kölsch yeast)
(Producer’s Note: Like Minds now has a fancy website but did not at the time of this recording.)
