    Welcome back Hopslam! I'm not comparing it to last year but it does taste pretty sweet.

    Devlin- wine barrel aged saison, and Baudoinia at Clybourn. Baudoinia was the winner but they were both great.

    I am starting my evening with this:


    Then debating on which of these two to try:


    Tried to add some Dream Theater to the Metallica/Maiden mix, but I can't seem to link to "You Tube":confused:

  13. I have been trying to get my hands on some flower power... I am assuming you love it?

  14. That black IPA went down too quickly...

    Nonetheless, let there be barleywine!


    and Slayer!

    I second that!

    Flower Power is probably my favorite east coast IPA. Drinking one right now.

    I'm normally a stout girl, but this beer is fab. (And so is my orange/avocado/sunflower seed salad with homemade lemon/grapefruit/mustard dressing!)
  17. One of my favorite drummers, Derek Roddy, also tried out for Dream Theater when they were looking for a drummer after Mike left. Crazy to think that Derek, who is know for extreme death metal(but he is great in MANY styles), was asked by them to try out!

    I really like it. I am a huge fan of SoCal stuff, Stone, Alpine, GreenFlash, BP, so the bar is very high, but Flower Power is very good.

  20. Now we are getting heavier! How heavy can you go?

    Me jamming away couple months age! :D

    Enjoying a bastardized version of an old favorite.


    And bottling a small batch of my 9% D-IPA blasted with a ton of Columbus Hops (along with Magnum, Citra, Cascade, & Centennial), it's a spicy one! :)

    After a long week of business travel I plan on polishing off a growler of Beachwood Hop Jitsu before getting into my haul of fresh Alpine and Kern for this weekends play-off games. GO PACKERS !!!!!

    Add me to the list, I love this stuff. I was seriously strapped for cash when this was available so I only picked up one more. Regretting it now, this beer will be great for years.
