There’s a lot of IPAs and Double IPAs in this popular hazy, New England style out there, but not all of them make Pantera references.

If you’ve got a “Mouth for War,” let’s “Rise” and take a “Walk” to Equilibrium Brewery in Middletown, New York for Vulgar Display of Flower, “an aggressive yet balanced assault on the senses” that “displays the hop flower’s assertive yet delicious nature.” Is this beer going to reach “A New Level” or feel like punch in the face like that iconic album cover?

OK, no more bad song title jokes – let’s get to it!

Massive Beer Reviews is an award-winning YouTube beer review, brewery, and culture show based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania. With almost 20 years in the craft beer game, we aim to cover all styles, but pull no punches when it comes to our opinions on the beers we cover.

Beer is inherently a subjective subject, so while we make enjoy something more than you or vice versa, we can – many more times than not – tell the difference and differentiate between a beer we don’t like and a beer that is made badly, which is typically illustrated in the reviews.

While we take our show, comments, and approach seriously, we also know a stick-up-the-butt viewpoint on the lovely art that is beer is not what we want to portray, nor something we would want to watch ourselves, so keep on the lookout for blue language, random silliness, maybe a little bit of drunkenness, and some headstrong opinions.

We encourage watchers’ input and love a good debate, so if you see or hear something you love, hate, or anything in-between, feel free to reach out to us in the comments section, through e-mail, or on any of the various social media platforms listed below!
