IBB IPAPA March Bracket Round 1 | #1 Pulpit Rock Stink Juice Vs. #16 ReUnion Tank Puncher

The top-rated beer in the Eastern Iowa bracket opens with a tough match-up from a winner of the play-in round. ReUnion's Tank Puncher pulled out a win over Confluence by just two votes to advance to the Big Dancing Thing. Will there be a massive upset or will Stink Juice breeze through to round two? Vote in the box for your favorite below.


How it got here: Pulpit Rock's Imperial IPA debuted in October of 2016 and has been delighting palates ever since. This 7.9% double packs the Mosiac, Eureka and Bravo hops into a hazy body that resembles the unfiltered NE Style IPA. Stink takes the spot since it's currently pouring at the PR taproom. Had Rhyme Animal been available, perhaps it would hold down the #1 seed. Untappd users love Stink Juice at 4.32 bottle caps with over 700 ratings.

Available: Pulpit Rock taproom or in to-go crowlers from a very nice friend.



How it got here: Tank Puncher pulled out an amazing win in Twitter voting in a play-in game earlier this week. It narrowly beat Confluence's NE Style IPA 51% to 49%. 

Tank Puncher is a big 7.3% ABV American IPA. I'll be damned I couldn't find the hop mix but it's described as tropical and juicy. So, there's that. Untappd users like TP at 3.99 bottle caps with over 700 check-ins.

Available: Draft only at the ReUnion tap room and various accounts.
