My top three were Sip of Sunshine (Lawson), Benwood (Cigar City) and Wrench (Industrial Arts).....
There’s a slew of good ones, but Boss Tweed I thought was pretty well done, and a pretty big beer. When they get that big it’s easy to bugger it up.
Summer camp Crush was pretty awesome.
Other Half's DDH Green City was pretty damn good, but I have not drank that many IPAs this summer to be honest.
It’s been forever, not new and it’s been forever since I was at the Warren store buying a bunch of bottles, but Lawsons Chinookered flys under the radar, and Lawson’s imo doesn’t make a bad beer.
Outer Range's DDH Nelson In the Steep IPA (6.8%ish)
New Image More Fun than a Pillow Fight (9.5%!)
Mast Landing Windbreaker
Burlington Beer Co. Double Nü Disco Jumpsuit (milkshake IPA but close enough)
J. Wakefield File Not Found
Equilibrium + Civil Society - Sweep the Leg TIPA.
Tasted like overripe tangerine juice with no booze in it whatsoever and it was 10% abv. Delicious.
I liked Zen Garden by Clown Shoes.
Troegs Lucky Holler was a huge hit with me, ended up really enjoying this beer.
Tropicana Extra Pulp with a couple shots of Stoli
Dancing Gnome - Triple Lustra
Four Points - Overbranded Citra
Equilibrium x Other Half - Dream Wave Distortion
Tired Hands - Punge
Equilibrium - Super Fractcal Fulcrum Set
I’ve drunk a fuckton of Hill Farmstead and Tree House this year but, unexpectedly, the very best IPA I’ve had lately was a Collective Arts/Aslin collaboration, Collective Project: IPA No. 13.
Trill had a number of releases in August that blew me away. The Headrooms really nice.
Stone Tiki Escape was pretty legit, also Stolen Sun Mosaic Stylee
But discovering G Cheek was a revelation
Bent Wookie from Holdout Brewing in Austin, TX was a pleasant, refreshing surprise for an imperial NEIPA. Juicy, not too sweet and very flavorful.
Ghostown Ominous, Barebottle Unicorn Dust, Laughing Monk Brother Andy, Pacifica Cloud Bounce, Boomtown Graffiti dipa, Alvarado Make Mischief.
Treehouse’s Verrrrrrryyyyy Ggggggggggggggggggreeen. The best ipa I’ve ever had. (And I’ve had most of the top ipa’s).
My personal podium for the Juicy Ipa drunk this summer
(some of my photos attached) :
1) PLAIN OF THE PO - Crak brewery
2) FRUIT CAN'T LOOSE - Crak brewery
3) BE HAPPY - Opperbacco microbrewery
on an equal footing with the
VELVET SUIT of the MC77 brewery
In general :
1) TASTY JUICE - Lervig
2) PLAIN OF THE PO - Crak brewery
3) MANGO FANDANGO - Spike brewery
on an equal footing with the
CLWB TROPICANA - Tiny Rebel
For me it was Hop Deluge from Other Half. So good.
Sip of Sunshine seems to be #1 for me every summer (and maybe year)
My favorite so far has been the Kush Super Dank DIPA from Community Beer Company in Dallas, TX
they’ve become my new favorite brewery. Everything they brew is great and they do a variety of styles from pilsners, to hazies, WC and stouts. Now that they opened the Costa Mesa location with hours that Fit my schedule. Rarely went to the Orange location.
In no particular order:
NugMo, Toppling Goliath
Lassos and Lasers Brett IPA, Confluence
Easy Eddy, Big Grove
Collapse of the Multiverse, Lion Bridge
All excellent brews, all Iowa breweries.
This summer, I’ve been blessed by easily finding juicy IPA’s on the grocery store shelves. Specifically any of the DDH IPA’s from Tupps, or the hazy IPAs from Spindletap, or the fantastic fresh IPA’s from 5 Stones!
I've never seen a juicy IPA that isn't hazy.
New England IPA
Emphasizing hop aroma and flavor without bracing bitterness, the New England IPA leans heavily on late and dry hopping techniques to deliver a bursting juicy, tropical hop experience. The skillful balance of technique and ingredient selection, often including the addition of wheat or oats, lends an alluring haze to this popular take on the American IPA.
Than keep looking. Not all juicy IPAs are hazy. I’ve had plenty from local breweries (Pinthouse, Cibolo Creek, Freetail, etc.), that have brewed several juicy IPA’s that are juicy and not hazy. Look before you criticize!
Due to the _____ ____ ____ pandemic, I've been buying the local Juiciest stuff I've seen so far. We don't get the good stuff from the Northeast very often but I've had several good ones and I think these guys are on track from what I've learned so far.
>>>>>Turning Point Beer, Bedford has Triple IPAs, a Quadruple IPA clocking in at 10.2 and 12.4% ABV. One and done for me. Switching to Lone Star, PBR or ...
Brain Scramblies. Wifey approved
Speaking of Industrial Arts. I just had "Impact Wrench" a few days ago and it was insanely juicy, over the top. Loved it and by far the best. The other two juicy choices from this Summer? A fresh 4-pack of Overhead from Kane Brewing last month (just insanely good), and fresh Party Wave from Kane (gave it a 4.4).
And I then will do. Why so sensitive?
Every single pic on here so far shows a hazy beer. Different levels of hazy, but definitely hazy. Like I said, I have never seen/had one that was clear and juicy. All the clear ones have been West Coast-style, which is piney and resiny, bitter and dry
I moved from Boston down south. I was so spoiled before.
I will say the TrimTab specials, Wild Leap Alpha series, and Cherry Street Hazy's have helped fill the Trillium/Tree House/Fin Back/Foam shaped hole in my heart.
Also I've been lucky enough to grab a couple of Creature Comforts and Baa Baa Brewhouse Hazy/NEIPA offerings.
Sounds like you're in GA. Seek out Bearded Iris' stuff.
This summer was the first time I had anything from Tree House, and I was blown away by King Julius and Very Green. All their others were delicious too, these ones just stick out to me. These were beyond Heady imo, just fantastic juice bombs, but quite balanced. Also, Singlecut's DDH Electric Blue was incredible as well, though I had that before the summer
I think anyone looking for a Juice Bomb is going to enjoy Treehouse more than Heady Topper. Totally agree Singlecut has put out some awesome stuff recently as well. I also tried Treehouse for the first time this year and I think On The Fly was the standout although everything was good. Still need to try their stouts one day.
He is definitely in GA from that list. GA just got a huge batch of Attention Please from Bearded Iris within the past couple weeks it is pretty easy to find right now. OP might also want to check out Ology who has been sending a bunch of FL haze up to GA these past few months.
Yeah for sure, Heady is still incredible though
Their stouts are mind blowing, Moment of Clarity (coffee maple milk stout) managed to crack my top 10 beers of all time
I'd have to say,
Double Dry Hopped Vicinity, Trillium
One that stands out is Barnyard Rockstar from Tin Barn, a new brewery open a bit NW of NYC, absolutely fantastic 10% juice bomb.
Yea that was good, a friend actually held on to a can for like 4 months and we had it last week, still pretty good. I also started watching Cobra Kai recently and realized I totally missed the reference.
I told the friend I was with I didn't like the name and can art and he had to explain the reference to me and then it made a ton more sense. I'm close enough to 40 you think I would remember the movie...
