In this beer blog, we are going to sample 98 Problems IPA from Perrin Brewery. This is the first time that this craft brewery is being featured on this blog. Here is a little history on this brewery. Perrin Brewery was founded in 2012 just outside of Comstock, Michigan. Their goal is to make drinkable and session-able beers. They were sold to Osckar Blues in 2015. They will be releasing six-pack 12oz cans by the end of the year. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear copper color with a white constant head. The smell has an earthly to floral notes. There is more floral notes. The taste of this medium body has a smooth earthy to slight piney notes. The aftertaste has a smooth but bitter finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, this is a pretty young craft brewery in Michigan. They are starting to make some noise around the state and country. I know many people outside of the State of Michigan that want their beers. They are the guys that started the whole Grapefruit IPA trend. I love this beer. I might be drinking this more when it is in package than Goose Island IPA. There is a nice balance in this India Pale Ale. Untappd says it is an American IPA. I believe it is like Goose Island IPA. They are both English style India Pale Ales. They use Michigan grown hops but they are all original from Europe. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Metal it! Enjoy it! \m/
