La Roja Sour Amber Ale

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales | Dexter, MI

ABV: 7.2%  |  IBU: N/A  |  Rating: 98 points
$13.99  |  750ml Bottle

Jolly Pumpkin is one of the best sour breweries in the United States and all of their beers are barrel-soured for great complexity and nuance. While every one of their beers is great, they’ve built their stellar reputation with the help of one in particular: La Roja, their interpretation of a Flanders Red Ale. Aged in oak for months and blended across batches, this beer is at once sharp and creamy, fruity and earthy. Versatile, interesting, and truly a cut above the rest.

Imperial IPA

Mt. Carmel Brewing Co. | Cincinnati, OH

ABV: 8.7%  |  IBU: N/A  |  Rating: 94 points
$11.99  |  6-Pack Bottles

Originally released as part of their limited run Snapshot series, this beer is my favorite all-time Mt. Carmel beer. Citrusy with underlying hints of stone fruit and resin, this Imperial IPA is a total sleeper hit!

Weekend Vibes IPA

 Coronado Brewing Company | San Diego, CA

ABV: 6.8%  |  IBU: 60  |  Rating: 95 points
$12.99  |  6-Pack (16 ounce) Cans

Weekend Vibes is a great IPA. Tropical fruits mixed with a deep ripe dankness set the tone for this incredible beer. Not too high in ABV or IBU, this is a great beer for the summer! All of my favorite hops are here, including Mosaic, Citra, and, last but not least, Simcoe. Get this beer and enjoy your weekend!

Intellectual Property Ale, IPA

Motorworks Brewing | Bradenton, FL

ABV: 6.9%  |  IBU: 85  |  Rating: 93 points

PRICE: $9.99  |  6-Pack Cans

With a touch of grapefruit and pineapple, this beer packs a big, classic West Coast IPA flavor. Bitter with a dry finish, this beer delivers a lingering hoppy taste that tastes distinctly like a true American IPA. This is brewed with the three big Cs: Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook. With pine, fruit, and a little bit of resin, this beer is great every day.
