Sofa sessions: the best East Coast/New England IPAs | The Craft Beer Channel In our final instalment about our new obsession – east coast/New England IPAs – we taste some of the world's best IPAs right now. Heady Topper, Julius and Congress Street side by side...it doesn't get much better than that. But still, we had a clear favourite.

Julius? Better than Heady? Hahahahha. Ya- if you want a creamsicle instead of an IPA....
ckalnicki (9 days ago)
The Craft Beer Channel - Wrong. It’s a fact. Enjoy your so called IPA. Wow.
Like i say it is, all subjective and we prefer Julius.
ckalnicki (9 days ago)
The Craft Beer Channel - This is true . However do not call Julius better than Heady. When it’s Voted # 1 in the world ( Which will never happen ). You can make that distinction.
So there is only one legitimate IPA? If so it is currently Two Hearted by Bells. Not heady. Either way, the amazing variety in beer is what makes it the greatest drink on earth and makes being a beer drinker now so exciting. You want a juice bomb, have a Julius. You want a dank, resiny bitter ipa have a heady. You want a piny, citrus fresh ipa have a Two Hearted. They are all awesome.
ckalnicki (9 days ago)
The Craft Beer Channel - One is a beer that taste like a creamsicle. One is a legitimate IPA. Has Julius ever been number #1 in the world ? NEVER.

Drives me crazy when people stir the beer, it makes it flat
Joe England (3 months ago)
trying a new england ipa right now like you suggested. It taste great a nice balance of all the flavors.
Joe England (3 months ago)
very little bitterness its very neat. u get that flavor without choking on that bitter flavor.

You guys have to try Alter Ego and a few others that are awesome Greater Goods Graylock IPA and Stone Cows Bono Loco both on par with Tree house in my opinion.
The Craft Beer Channel (6 months ago)
We've had Alter Ego and must enjoyed it! Will have to see if we can track those others down. Feel like another east coast road trip is in order...
Empty Chamber556 (6 months ago)
This tree house beer is going to be the death of me because I can't get it or I will have to drive 12 hours to get it.
Empty Chamber556 (6 months ago)
The Craft Beer Channel Michigan, we have the m43 and boss tweed made by old nation. But the tree house beers just keep showing up on my Instagram. Cheers 🍻
The Craft Beer Channel (6 months ago)
Haha. Well luckily now there are thousands of breweries making this style (nearly) as well. Where you from?
Jeff Cirelli (8 months ago)
Heady Topper is always intriguing. Since it was the one that kinda started the NEIPA beer trend, which I love.. It still has hop bite for sure. Its juicy, its fruit and hazy, but its also plenty bitter and resiny. Fast Forward a bit, and you've got some of the best examples of NEIPAs today, are straight fruit smoothies. So hazy they pour like Sunny D, so fruity it blows your mind when you find out they're not adding fruit extracts, and so mouth coatingly delicious that I honestly cant believe beer tastes like this. I dont want to make it even harder to get.. but.. Industrial Arts brewing. Wrench NEIPA. Good lord. Its just a mango pineapple explosion. No. No its gross. Dont seek it out.

You drove up from philly and didn't hit tiredhands or otherhalf? Crazy good stuff from them as well.

any reason you guys aren't using clean glasses for each beer? I'm about to try these ipas this weekend

+nyhiphopheadd BECAUSE WE ARE TERRIBLE PEOPLE. Seriously, we should have but we were having too much fun.
Christian Burgess (1 year ago)
Need to try Throwing Shade by New Anthem out of Wilmington, NC!
+Christian Burgess love the name! We'll look them up!
David Wolfe (1 year ago)
Some great east coast style IPAs coming out of Louisiana. Parish Brewing - Ghost in the Machine and Gnarly Barley - Juicifer. Try them out!
both STRONG beer names!
arthur cesar (1 year ago)
Hey Friends, Which Brewery is Better Beavertown X Cloudwater ? My cousin is coming back to Brazil and I asked her to bring to me a Couple Beers from England. I like IPAs very much, só I am thinking of these two Brewerys. Can you advise me Up ? Thankssss
Oooof, well both are world class so depends what you love! For NE IPA, lagers and sessions IPAS, Cloudwater. For West Coast styles and experiments, Beavertown. Get some of both, they are readily available in both Manchester and London.
UnsocialEmu (1 year ago)
You guy definitely need to make the trip to Pittsburgh PA next time your over here and check out dancing gnome and brew gentlemen. there making beers almost as good as treehouse. and there's also a ton of other local breweries to check out it would be hard to name them all
UnsocialEmu we'll add it to the list!
pedro bonilla (1 year ago)
I've recently become obsessed with the East Coast or New England IPA. I've tried Trillium (haven't taken the drive to treehouse) and thoroughly enjoyed all their offerings but Mystic brewing in Chelsea, ma makes my favorite IPA. Danger!danger!
Gideon Ham (1 year ago)
The best-kept secret in New England. Rarely a line on weekdays and the beer is incredible.
Haven't heard of them! We'll have to do some research.
abe frohman (1 year ago)
The Alchemist is bringing back many of the beers they started with before the flood. Tree House and Trillium are both making amazing beers too. The East Coast juice bombs are my favorite beers now.
it's a good time to be a hophead, that's for sure.
Jack St.onge (1 year ago)
You should try swish from Bissell brothers brewing in Portland Maine
We tried some delicious Bissel Brothers stuff but not enough when we were over!
Adam Crouse (1 year ago)
Definitely need to check out Troegs Brewing Co. if ever in Harrisburg/Hershey, PA area. Perpetual is a classic East Coast IPA (85 IBU, 7.5%). First Cut (seasonal) is a mild IPA with a focus on mango. Also a few solid Bocks and Stouts.
We drank some while in New York a year ago, really impressed but wanted to try more!
Nicolas Bertin (1 year ago)
I've tried Trillium, Maine, Treehouse, Alchemist, and to me, I'd put Treehouse first, Maine second, Trillium third and Alchemist last. I'm disappointed you haven't found out about Maine Brewing, their Dinner and Lunch beer are absolutely amazing. I like Alchemist but to me they're like Stone: good and properly done, but not "knock your socks off" with the frutiness and complexity that Treehouse brings. Treehouse and Maine are the freshest IPAs I know, alongside a fantastic Quebec brewery called Auval. If you don't know them, seek them out. They're usually only available in Gaspésie, a large peninsula East of the city of Québec, but their IPAs are just amazing for such a small and recent brewery... As for Trillium, I think they're better than Alchemist because they have a strong personality, they try a lot of stuff, and there's like a Trillium "taste", that slight lemon/lime finish in all their beers. Alchemist is doing the same beers over and over and they're incredibly hard to find, like Russian River. I don't like that.
+Nicolas Bertin haha - yeah they are tricky to find but it's down to philosophy and size. Those guys don't want to expand too far and prefer to be local. Trillium I think are a bit more ambitious - nothing wrong with either approach especially as great beer gets more prevalent around the world. We know Maine brewery too - didn't manage to get any packaged for the video though. Had some great beer by them too though.

Next time you're in New England if you happen to be in Connecticut again. I'd recommend stopping down by the shore to Beer'd. Its a great brewery, one of Connecticut finest. Outer Lights is very good as well not far from there. If you guys head to treehouse again I could also recommend about a 25 min. drive through back country roads to Ellington, CT. There is a relatively new brewery there called Cold Creek and they're making some amazing beers. Their stouts and sours are fantastic. They're really making a name for themselves with their sours though.
M Arsenault (1 year ago)
awesome
Also, we might be back end of next year so will look up Cold Creek!
+M Arsenault beer'd!? How weird. There's a British brewery called that too.
Greg Saso (1 year ago)
You guys were in Philly and didn't go to Tired Hands! They make some fantastic IPAs, their milkshake IPAs are some of the best ive had for sure. Up there with Tree House and Trillium.
+Greg Saso oh but we did! Check out our video on where to drink in Philly! We went there, Monks and lots of lesser known great places!
Nicci Cooper (1 year ago)
Have you guys tried Grimm IPA, Zap or Tesseract from Brooklyn?
+Nicci Cooper we've had a couple of grimm beers but never the ipas. Mostly sours. Hard to come by in the UK but we'll get some next time we're out in the US.
Exploring Tampa (1 year ago)
No Tampa beers? For shame!
M Arsenault (1 year ago)
I live in New England but Jai Alai is well known even up here, I'm sure many TH beers get traded by mail for Jai Alai often.
Exploring Tampa (1 year ago)
The most loved IPA in the area is Cigar City Brewing's Jai Alai (Hi Lie), then there's Coppertail's Free Dive, then Tampa Bay Brewing Company's Old Elephant Foot and Reef Donkey, and anything brewed by Angry Chair. Cheers.
Give us the tips, we'll look 'em up!

Bob Murray (2 years ago)
Heading to Tree House this Saturday, and looks like Alter Ego will be on tap (we shall see). I had Green at Siptemberfest in Vermont (quite good), and hopefully some day will get some Julius. My favorite DIPA at the moment is Lawson's Sip of Sunshine from Warren, VT (contract brewed at Two Roads.) Lotsa a tropical fruits on the nose, and great balance of bitterness and malt. A lovely brew.
Bob Murray (2 years ago)
Oh yes! and luckily had three companions in tow (they marveled at the long line when we got there 15 minutes before opening.) So it was 6 cans of Julius, 4 cans of Sap per person, and they ran out of Ma before we reached the counter after an hour in line. The only shocking thing is they required photo ID to purchase, and my 60 year old self left it at home, but the 3 companions had theirs, whew! The Julius is transcendent, and well worth the wait, a melange of mango, fresh orange juice, tangerine, citrus dankiness on the nose and a resplendent, chewy mouth feel and a hoppy bite surprise on the back palate. I'm already ruing the day I'll run out (which is soon :-(
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Did ya get any Julius?!
Ege İsilar (2 years ago)
Today I'm not gonna drink beer but,suddenly I have changed my mind,I'm going to get beer from super market now fuck yeah !!!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
haha, glad we changed your mind!
SLM3573 (2 years ago)
Do you think we will ever see these beers on the other side of the Atlantic, will Beermerchants get them?... although they seem to struggle to have good British beers in stock (Cloudwater DIPA I'm looking at you!!!!)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
haha. Well these guys are even trickier! Treehouse only sell from the brewery right now! Maybe one day, depending on whether they want to grow that far....
SLM3573 (2 years ago)
I meant will we ever get julius, topper etc over here lol.... I am happy to chip into a gofundme if you feel empowered to try!!!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
ah it's a tricky one. most of the demand for British beer in the US is for our traditional styles like bitters. You guys are so good at IPAs yourselves! I know some Siren and Cloudwater have made it across (the latter at Modern Times's dank festival) but otherwise I think it's just brewdog!
SuperBeau21 (2 years ago)
Head further east to Portland the bissel brothers brewery are making unbelievable beers in this style
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
yeah we missed out on these guys sadly. Next time we come over!
SLM3573 (2 years ago)
my Crowler arrived yesterday.. I kind of want to and also dont want to open it.. sort of treasure it but I guess its best fresh. I also ordered some IHL from Camden after your review videos as well as the other Gipsy Hill and Cloud Water beers. I have to say my cans of IHL didnt really wow me with real hop forwardness. Maybe its not fresh enough, still a good beer though. I couldnt wait for the homebrew video so made my own with (Pale, Oats, Cara Hell, acidulated malt) and used Equinox, El Dorado and Motueka (couldnt get Azaaca ) also with London yeast so I am hoping for something close to Drifter... fingers crossed.!!!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Let us know how it turns out! We're filming on Thursday and I don't think I've been more excited about a shoot in while! Shame about the IHL - hope the recipe hasn't changed since we last had it about 6 months ago.
Dakota Fisher (2 years ago)
One of these days I'll hit up the Northeastern U.S. and see what all the buzz is on about. One of the downsides of living in Hawai'i is that a lot of these delicious brews aren't easily accessible.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
+Dakota Fisher yeah...but that's probably the only downside I'd imagine!
Mike Dent (2 years ago)
Great video guys! I brewed a similar style beer recently which turned out awesome. In fact it was so good my last brew was an identical beer to see if I could achieve consistency. (I'll know in a week or so) I'm using lots of simcoe and galaxy hops (one batch during fermentation) with an English yeast. As you say the fruit aromas and tastes are awesome. Looking forward to seeing your recipe.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
cheers man! Galaxy is a great hop choice for this style. Hoping ours turns out as good as yours!
Ole P. (2 years ago)
Well bloody heck. For one you are lucky bastards and I love you. Secondly I got some ideas as to how to shape my homebrew NE IPA attempts from this video (the oats are my biggest point of question right now). Surely will include them. Thirdly: Next time you come to Berlin I hope to have my homebrew production running to the point where I might convince you to give me some feedback as I give you beer. Also I know a guy who has this wonderful 100% Brett Pale Ale with Orange Zest that is amazeballs for a first batch. I will bugger him to brew a second batch and send you some cause I am sure you´d love it. Zesty Orval IPA Summerdrink to put it in general terms.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Sounds awesome. We get to Berlin quite a lot so we'll let you know when we do!

I've had the drifter and it is definitely a great beer! Any ideas on where i can get hold of the other beers in the video, in the uk?
DevonianDaz (2 years ago)
thats a shame really as i bet they'd sell quite well here even if we had to pay slightly over the odds
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Glad you liked it! Sadly none of these breweries ship to the UK. In fact they rarely ship out of the state, and Treehouse is only available in can from the brewery itself! Demand is crazy at the moment but once it dies down and the breweries expand the situation will improve...but maybe not so much it comes over the pond sadly.

And I apologise for being the 70th comment because 69 is just an inherently funny number.
KoKi GAmI (2 years ago)
I love craft brewing and trying other people's brews but I'm also old school. A style of beer is a style of beer and if that style requires a lot of IBUs and it doesn't then, it's just not cricket! That said, I still want to try these beers because, well.... Beer!
KoKi GAmI (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel don't get me wrong, I totally agree. I'll never stop trying or creating beers. I'm just a stickler for style guidelines. I actually think some new style guidelines should be made to accommodate all the new craft beers being experimented with.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
We're a bit more loose in our styles. I'd rather people tried all the beers at the bar to find the right one than just ordered IPAs all night!
Alec Damm (2 years ago)
Are you ever gonna make a tour out to Portland? Would love to see you guys come and talk about some of the beers out here!

Awesome video! Glad you guys could try some of these crazy awesome NE style IPAs! Trillium, Tree House, Other Half, Tired Hands, Grimm, Hoof Hearted, etc are all making some great beers! I think as far as the NE style hoppy beers goes, my favorite by quite a bit is Trillium. Each and every one of their beers has blown me away. Not taking anything away from the other guys, but really love their stuff. Your collab beer sounds pretty damn good too man. Cheers!
ChrisBryanTisSkinny (2 years ago)
Yes, Trillium is producing some incredible beers. Don't forget about Hill Farmstead either. Going to get me some double galaxy this weekend.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
cheers! We reviewed heavy Mettle next to some other DIPAs in a coming episode and that one just...it was just incredible.
Jens Peder Pedersen (2 years ago)
Me and my son were actually hugely inspired by your Gypsy Hill/Drifter brewing session, so we went ahead and re-engineered your recipe, using the same hops types (which by the way were completely unavailable in Denmark, but we managed to get them from Sweden instead). End result (Name: The Gypsy King, Fruity Summer Beer) was amazing and you should definitely taste it !! BUT, I am getting ready to brew batch #2 and now you say you will release your recipe 'early summer' - not good enough, we need it like right now in the next 3-4 days. I'd totally appreciate if you could pre-release it, so we can compare to what we did and maybe make some adjustments ;o) Greetings, Jens in Denmark
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
haha! Sorry man, we work too slow for you. Let me speak to the brewery and if they let me release it I'll post it here. They may want to wait though...
Sam Jory (2 years ago)
Epic beers, didn't get to try heady or Julius earlier this year when I went to Boston but had loads of trillium beers including Congress street, all delicious and had Tree house green which blew me and my brewer friends away! Definitely check out Other Half Brewing beers from New York next time you go over. Trillium and Tree house are both incredible but for me Other Half was even better when I went to visit. They did a DIPA with Galaxy, Motueka and Wai-Iti hops, 8% and so incredibly juicy, tropical with just the right amount of dankness and bitterness. Probably top IPA of this year if not ever! Cheers!
Sam Jory (2 years ago)
Oh sweet! Cheers
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
We went to Other Half last summer! Filmed it for our Where to Drink In New York. They are brilliant brewers, spent a lot of time in that tiny taproom. Vid's here: https://youtu.be/mQuzdXlC9aw?list=PLyDTS7ZG3zcNXS11NxRvWLNl5g5EQhBe8
George (2 years ago)
Lucky bastards! Do you finish all of precious beer after filming? Thats a lot of pokey beers!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
We did. Surprisingly Jonny lasted longer than the Brad, but it took us both down in the end. We had to postpone of Imperial Stout sofa session to another day....
I'm hyped for the recipe, I'm planning to brew something like that and would love to take inspiration. Sadly in Toronto, there's not a whole lot of examples of that kind of beer, only the Redline Clutch and maybe the Burdock Vermont Pale Ale come close. Really Toronto is heading more for a southern Belgium farmhouse summer with a bit of Munich Helles on the side.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Hey well that's cool too! I'd kill for a good helles being made in London. Luckily we have Augustiner and Paulaner pretty widely available but I wish the Brits would get better at it. Seems the homebrew recipe is a popular one so we'll get it live asap!
ZwienerZ (2 years ago)
Parish brewing is making Ghost in the machine that stacks up to these beers. They're in Louisiana. Check that beer out!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
We'll look into it!
Jon (2 years ago)
yeeessss homebrew vid! I had Cloudwater DIPAv3 last night, which is in this style (I think) - the mango fruityness was immense. I wish more UK breweries were doing these as it's so different to other IPAs (in fact I think we need a new name altogether)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Probably, but then every brewery wants to put IPA on every beer because the word sells! I've heard of a couple of breweries lining up an east coast IPA so watch out as they come.
ZwienerZ (2 years ago)
DDH Congress St. is my favorite!
bever82 (2 years ago)
This is really making me want to take a road trip up to Boston and Vermont this summer. Also, The Veil in Richmond, VA have some awesome IPAs worth checking out.

Hiya CBC - Can't recommend Fresh Squeezed from Deschutes highly enough. Has fast become my go-to beer when I'm looking for citrusy, fruity IPAs. 10/10 recommended, if you've not already tried it.
Laurie Laker (2 years ago)
Can do! If there's an email where we could talk this over more, let me know. :)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
that would be much appreciated! And of course we'd reimburse!

I really hope you do, as it's incredible. Sod it, if you can't find it - I'd me more than happy to send the pair of you a couple of bottles just for fun.

unklestu (2 years ago)
So the drifter has come up quite clear in the crowler compared with the bottled stuff? Are you making more of this?? And are you gonna put it in a large can?! Because I would certainly buy it. A statement johnny - the beer merchant website isn't very good I don't think. Unfortunately most of the time I go to order- a lot of the beers are out of stock. And finally a question- the cloudwater DIPA v3 - will this be made again? It's impossible to find in pubs or in any quantity on the Internet. Thanks
unklestu (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel nice! I love the drifter. Glad it's a permanent fixture. Cheers johnny and the brad
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Hey - the can had a bit of time to settle as it was upright and chilled in the fridge for about 2 weeks. More has been made and the crowler is in fact on Beer merchants! Speaking of which, the site is experiencing unprecedented demand at the moment so there's a lot of changes going on to keep up - stick with it! DIPA 3 will never be made again sadly, but DIPA 4 and 5 come out soon. And 6 might become a permanent beer.
Ariel Potischman (2 years ago)
I'm guessing the double dry hopped Congress St wasn't available at the time. It is easily one of their best offerings.
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
sadly not - it was sold out about a week before we arrived...
The Master of Hoppets (2 years ago)
#TEAMGREEN!! I think Julius is amazing but I prefer Green, as I think its more on the tropical side of things, and Julius is more orange forward. I haven't tried much Trillium yet, but both Vicinity and Headroom were amazing, some of the best DIPA's I've had! They actually also just started canning their hoppy beer. Cool video guys, and your collab didn't sound too far off. Cheers!

I'll be at Tree House in just 2 weeks now! Do they release Julius often? I imagine their other beers are just as good, but I'll be so happy if I manage to get some Julius. Great video guys!
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Yep - what Mark said! Julius is the most common beer so more likely to get that than anything but it's luck of the draw. Glad you liked the vid!
Mark Winters (2 years ago)
Best bet is to check their website and see what's on tap for the week. Note that they only release what they are canning the day of and that they only sell certain hours on certain days. I know they canned some Julius last week, and from what I observed, there is no real rhyme or reason to what they can and when they can it. More so just luck of the draw.

The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
British-wise there's our beer with Gipsy Hill, any of the DIPAs by Cloudwater and some pales like Summer Wine Juice Facilitator, Pressure Drop Pale Fire, Beavertown Gamma... abroad you should get any Omnipollo IPA. One of those will sort you out! Lots of available from our partners beermerchants.com
Matthew Taylor (2 years ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel No. Way. it's good to hear it's so popular, but a shame it's so far away! I'm a sucker for fruity beers, any other recommendations that might be a bit easier to get my hands on?
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Literally nowhere! You can only buy it straight from the brewery at the moment. Demand is so high they had to bring it all in house to control where it went. With their new brewery that will change but if it ever made it to the UK I was be shocked. Such a shame for us, but that's why we're hoping more brewers will make this style!
Max Paulley (2 years ago)
Do you know when you're gonna release the recipe? Planning to brew something similar to take back to uni with me ;)

ahhh fair enough, maybe I'll get the hang of this brewing malarkey and jump on the band wagon!!! Can't wait to get my hands on some of these though :)
The Craft Beer Channel (2 years ago)
Well, Omnipollo have done some of it and the odd British beer has, but Americans are smashing it out the park at the mo. As with most modern styles, the world will catch up increasingly quickly.
Max Paulley (2 years ago)
are america definitely winning this one in your opinion or have you discovered any other great beers recently?
