    That Stone was great fresh, not too sure now though. Had my last one last year and it was less than stellar. Tasted like grapefruit soda fresh.

    Like I said, fresh it was refreshingly awesome citrus. Remember, that beer was brewed to help build VT after Irene in 2011. IPA +1.5 years old.

    [​IMG]I needed another good stout to stop myself from cracking another Parabola as that was my true "a-ha" moment when it comes to stouts.

    T.C.'s Banana Split Stout is by far, IMO, the best beer they make. The rest are rather pedestrian for sure.

    "Hotel Haul" - Life is good on the road when you across stuff like this. (Pretty much all my wallet could handle at the moment before my wife kills me when I get home. ;)) Not pictured but also picked up a few Plum Noirs, a sixer of Rye of the Tiger, and an Unearthly and Oaked Unearthly.
