    Now onto a Midnight Sun XXX Black double ipa! It's such an interesting beer with its mostly toasty notes and then hitting with the citrusy hops. Midnight Sun has been surprising me lately, I wanted a stout and an ipa tonight, this one is kinda taking care of both cravings :)

    Next up...fresh Sculpin! But honestly after the Palate Wrecker, a ruthless rye would probably taste as good lol
    Still got another Palate Wrecker in the fridge...I'm crazy tempted to drink it but I think I'd enjoy it more if wasn't already buzzed up!

    Pretty fruity at this point
     
  10. My golden retriever smiles from ear to ear when I walk him in the snow and Hop Devil was the first beer to blow me away and ask myself why I didn't start drinking IPA's 10 years earlier. I'd put fresh Hop Devil up against anything.

    Cracked my last bottle of Twilight tonight and split with the lady. Seemed like an appropriate night, as it branded as a winter porter and our day could not get much more "winter".

    Trained help comes in handy when you start your own nano brewery. It's cool that he's interested in your hobby/passion.

    How much snow did you get hit with? We got around 8 inches but from what I hear your area got 2 feet or more. Hope you are making out alright.

    I'd take your glass with you if you have to take a whiz 'cause it may not be there when you get back!!

    Drifts made it hard to judge but I walked out into the woods and measured between 31-33 inches in my backyard. Driveway drifts in areas were closer to 40.

    My night cap, and first experience with Ten Fidy. Most certainly lives up to expectations, and will be picking up more tomorrow.

    Boltcutter....not bad but I wish I had let it age for a good while as I don't like this much hop presence in my barleywines.
     
  34. My, what a terrible picture of delicious things...

    Backwoods and some kick ass brownies with chocolate chips and walnuts. Cheers all!!

  36. I've seen them several times, most notably the 3 CD set from State College, Pa. Always amazing. Missed out on Wrigley Field Tickets today. Anyone lucky enough to get them?

    Thanks! I just got it a few weeks ago at a La Chouffe night. I didn't expect it would become a favorite glass.
