Over the last 20 years the IPA field has evolved as much as any style of beer. Starting with @sierranevada pale ale, then @bellsbrewery 2hearted, @russianriverbrewingofficial Pliny, @alch3mistb33r heady, and so many other landmark beers to bring us to this point where the haze craze haz taken the USAz. Now here we stand with the flagship @treehousebrewco IPA. Catching heat for not being the same since monson like so many of its brethren, but here is our take: this beer tasted fucking good. It’s in the company of those other greats that have paved the way for so many breweries to open as a one trick pony and half ass a brown, a “sour” and a chocolate coffee peanut butter cane sugar stout. So for the IPA category it remains a favorite and for the sake of continuing the culture and celebrating the growth and evolution of it we should all appreciate Julius at a minimum with nostalgia... but the shed’s not there yet! Enjoyed on the deck of Camp DeRuscio
We’re loving that @grimmales has transitioned packaging of their dry-hopped sour beers from bombers to 16oz cans!
Living Daylights is an Imperial Berliner Weisse hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and Columbus.
@hudsonvalleybrewery Hudson Valley Brewery - Purelake Sour IPA w/Petite Sirah Grapes, Beacon NY | This was 🔥🔥! First off look at the color! Not sure what petite sirah grapes are but this had more of the sour grape taste that was tangy and slightly sweet! So refreshing for the valley heat, can sip on these all day! Thanks again to @craftbeer3sixty5 for sending me that NY 🔥! Appreciate it bro!
@hudsonvalleybrewery Hudson Valley Brewery - Purelake Sour IPA w/Viognier Grapes, Beacon NY | HV once again kills it! Nice tartness and sweetness and also got like a floral taste at the end. Was afraid it was going to have a sorta wine taste from the grapes but not at all and was bombin on this hot day! Big thanks to my boy @craftbeer3sixty5 for always hookin it up!

I’ve been a pretty big music nerd for most of my life so I’ve got a big soft spot in my heart for NY’s @singlecutbeer, and the #canart from this can of Side Two (6.6%) IPA really sucked me in. It pours a really thick medium-gold hazy color with a ton of carbonation. It’s more malty than hoppy on the nose but has plenty of each, along with lots of banana. It drinks similarly: there’s a ton of hops, possibly even more malt and a lot of banana flavor, almost like a hoppy (boozy) banana smoothie. It’s got a mildly creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish; it’s interesting and a little funky; rock and roll; 4.0/5.

So my friend brought some Powder Dreams to a bbq last week. Pleasantly surprised since I’m not the biggest Captain Lawrence fan. Very soft IPA, you can definitely taste the dry hopped citra. If your on the fence with IPA’s I suggest trying Powder Dreams. #beerme#follow

A little over halfway through the year and we’ve brewed with almost 13 TONS of NY grown barley, wheat, and other grains so far (about 25,000 pounds!) Thanks for being so thirsty and for supporting local farms every time you hoist a glass of Good Nature. #farmtoglass#farmbrewery
We have a special beer on tap for our favorite Italian wine importer @pllpwr and it just so happens to be one of @jasonrdickinson favorite breweries.
Tap 1️⃣6️⃣: Brooklyn Brewery Pilsner | 5.1% ABV | 3.33⭐️ on @untappd |. If one of the floccboi breweries brewed this, it would be 4.5 on untappd...just saying.
