Episode 131 – IPA Plus
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.)
