    I just drank my very first BCBS tonight. OMFG. Yes I said OMFG, and no, I am not a 14 year old girl. It blew my cerebral cortex away.

  8. Beers that have recently blown me away...
    Living in Wisconsin I have been used to New Glarus offering great beers but recently I have recognized how well put together Moon Man (APA) is. I've also recently drank Lagunitus Maximus and have been throughly impressed. Also grab yourself some Stony Brooke Red from Sam Adams.

    drank at stlhops anniversary party. the couple pours of that alone were worth the ticket price

    The first batch of Lotus Eater from Nepenthe (NH) - like Heady good. They're apparently still messing around with their process on this, and subsequent batches didn't even come close to the first. Fingers crossed they can replicate batch #1.

    Since i started trading this year, ive had the privilege of finally trying HF Everett, HT, BCBS, JK Boxers Revenge, and Terrapin WNB...all of which have knocked my socks off
  31. Three Floyd's Alpha Klaus, easily one of the most complex beers I've ever had. The flavor profile was wild

    Firestone Wooky Jack blew me away as far as a Black IPA. And Alpine Nelson was so unique I was pissed I did not live in San Diego.
