Nerdsense – Episode 92 – Nerdsense Drinks Vol. 8

Yeah Yeah…We know, we haven’t put out a REAL episode since #88. Life got in the way for both Mike and I which caused us to not be able to record an actual podcast. We were able to get some beer reviews recorded so those will be coming regularly as usual.

While on the topic of beer reviews…this is another Drinks Volume. This could be considered the Chicago episode. This collects two reviews from Chicago based breweries Pipeworks Brewing Company and Arcade Brewery!

This collects Episode 15 –  Pipeworks Ninja vs Unicorn Double IPA and Episode 27 – Arcade Grapefruit IPA

Style: Double India Pale Ale
 16oz Tall Boy
Firestone Walker Tulip and Spiegelau Tulip 
Overall Nerdsense Rating:
Notes: Look: Filtered golden hue with nice white lacing 

Nose: Orange citrus, spicy pine. Cotton Candy sweetness Taste:sweet malt at the front with the hops at the back that keeps it balanced


Style: Grapefruit IPA
Container: 22oz Bomber
Notes: (From Website) Arcade Brewery has crafted this very sessionable IPA featuring citrus hop aroma and the addition of grapefruit; creating an awesome balance between hop bitterness and the citrus bite. A fine balancing act of biscuit malts allows a long hop finish wont fatigue taste buds; allowing the second pint to build off the first. An immensely sessionable ale, [the] Grapefruit IPA will win over all drinkers and give IPA lovers a new take on the incredibly popular style.
Rating: 3.75/5
