169/2390) The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Mom...Dad...I'm Juicy by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  **; 6.5%, 30 ibu;  a Thursday evening cask - Saison Farmhouse Ale with orange, coconut, vanilla, Mandarina Bavaria hops, Denali hops;  pours opaque; vanilla and orange nose;  orange, vanilla, bubblegum, some sweetness from the coconut; peppery finish; not especially juicy, though;

170/2391) Home:  Liquid Art Fest IPA by Collective Arts Brewing of Ontario:  **; a 5.9% milkshake IPA brewed with pureed passionfruit and mango, wheat malt, flaked oats, lactose and vanilla;  beyond murky, it's swampy; all variety of tropical fruits to the nose; very bitter citrusy hops to open quickly yielding to passionfruit and mango with a dry finish;

Though their products are radically different, one thing Great Lakes and Collective Arts have in common is that when they brew an IPA, it is uniformly of the first order.
