    I highly recommend this wonderous brew. Nice surprise Lagunitas. Cheers fellow advocates.

    Well...FWIW...I do notice the similarity between the groovy label and your avatar. Too bad the beer does not rate a smiley face:) .

    Cut and paste of a nice old label of a brew I'm having now. Fresh, of course!
  8. I saw this thread this AM and was insanely jealous.

    I am taking a break from my normal drinking schedule (Fri.-Sun.) to celebrate the submission of all five of my PhD applications. They were all submitted this afternoon! Wish me luck.

    I am celebrating with a bottle of Plead the 5th I got in locals for locals trade a while back (I think that was Zaphog, but I honestly can't remember, SORRY!).

    This beer is something special. I am not a big stout guy typically, but this is scratching me right where I itch tonight. I am curious as how it changes as it warms.

    Good luck and congrats!

    Isn't that one a Double IPA?
  13. Oh my.

    In a stunning reversal of standard practice, I think I like this year's iteration of Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye more (!!!) than last year's. I'm through the looking glass!

    Mine looks like this, but in a different glass in a different room and right now:


    And it sounds like this (or maybe that's just my imagination):

    So far, I enjoy it. That said,it certainly isn't anything to get worked up over and certainly not something that's worth the $17 I paid for the bottle.

    Heck, I can get a 4 pack of Small Batch DIPA for less than that and that's one of the few brews of theirs that I dig.

    Grabbed a sixer of Syracuse's best IPA to offer its locals. Getting excited for my delivery of a case of deliciousness from Minnesota that should arrive anyday now. Cheers!

    First time having this one, received as an extra from an awesome trader.


    Definitely one of the better Porters I've had to date.

    Tick, tick, tick.

    I have one more new bottle, but at this point I probably shouldn't pop a bomber of Victory V-12. So for now, an IPA that I've seen a zillion times, but never fresh.

    FINALLY, fresh Ballast Point Sculpin :

    Thoughts : A decent IPA. Can't believe I payed $20 for a sixer of this though. Keirbmeist, if you see this, it's not worth the hype, bro. Absolutely nothing special here. Could have bought two more Head Hunter four-packs, or old Flower Power, Troegs Perpetual, or....a lot of IPAs. I'm gonna get shit for this I know. The best by date is early May though. It's good, but not for the price.

    Lesson learned, I suppose.

    Friek goes really well whilst watching Dario Argento's Susperia on the tube, I reckon.

    Sorry, but Sculpin is fucking great. 20 bucks is overpriced, because in crazy-price NY it is 14.99

    I was a bit disappointed in this one myself but I thought it was because it had a best by date a month BEFORE I drank it. It had a sea water-like aftertaste and was not exceptional in any way.

    I will find it fresh one day and try it again.
