Man, them ankles turn me on.
Being into craft for over a year now AND from Pittsburgh, I feel like a total dipshit admitting I didn't know Penn Pilsner isn't a pilsner. Why is it called Penn Pilsner if it's a lager? And it's a shitty lager. It's just a shade better than Yuengling. Fuck, man.
Anyway, the Sam Adams "Hop Tour" 6-Pack was cool. The Noble Pils was tasty, the Latitude 48 kinda sucks.
However, Whitewater IPA. Holy shit? Holy shit! I feel like the rating on this is too low and that if the label said something other than "Samuel Adams", people would be jacking off to this. The smell and taste are both amazing and almost reminds me of the White Oak Jai Alai that awesome BA Kirbmeist brought me. Maybe it's just me, but this was a total shocker. Sam Adams always comes up decent, but this was something else. Wish I could find this alone in a sixer, as I definitely don't want more Latitude.
Nelson in my glass as I prepare a simple rough chopped spicy marinara on angel hair.
Schaefer............... out of the can!!... at least I know my next IPA will be twice as good now...
I had this two years ago and never really gave it much mind. It's just BRILLIANT! $14 is a friggin' steal for this!
1. Cigar City Jai Alai
2. Flying Fish Exit 16 Wild Rice Double IPA
Although I don't usually enjoy many of the offerings from Flying Fish, this Exit 16 Wild Rice IPA is quite tasty!
Having Two Brothers Domaine DuPage........found it to be pretty tasty.
That's a solid avatar.

My wife is mad at me for drinking a 120 min so now I'm drinking water
Been trying to hold off on this, but after seeing all the bottles of the recent batch getting opened, well will power isn't a strong suit for me.
I forget how good this is. Unheralded IPA.
My first go at this one...me likey!
Ill swear by that beer. I know its like mass produced and whatnot, but it honestly tastes good. Light colored for a Doppelbock, but tastes really fuckin good.
Another cherry popped. Not bad at all
I'm a chillin...

More Sucks needed in face.
Have you tried the Sam Adams Double Agent IPL? If you like hops the IPL blows Whitewater and Latitude out of the water (IMO). 'Not sure what the availability is on this beer, I haven't really seen it around, though.
I know right.... I'll drink anything... I find myself drinking cheap beer almost as much as craft styles.... I'm all over the place...
My thoughts are that of yours. Not a drain-pour, as it's not awful, but "meh" is all I've got.
Mine was also a gift--part of a large Christmas haul given to me. I've been cranking through the mediocre brews whilst saving the better ones for last.
2008 Stone IRS, cheers!!
It's the beer if you're having more than one. Don't ya know. Personally. I miss it.
I hear this one's good for the heart...
I gotta admit, the name is a bit of a turnoff and the concept seems gimmicky, but hot damn I got over that right quick with my first sniff. This is just like those chocolate-covered espresso beans, in liquid form. With booze. Very tasty- Salut!
I'll keep an eye out. It sounds familiar, as if I've seen it. Next time I hit Giant Eagle I'll look for it. Whitewater will be hard to top. Latitude...not so much.
Keeping it crisp and light for now. Likely moving on to some darker beers as the night progresses.
Was she givin' you the hairy eyeball??
Got a pack of that also
I found a pallet full of FBS and a 9 case stack out of this one. This one being a buck more at 66.99 a case. Is that a good deal??
Damn this is one tasty beer. Really liking this one.

A little dessert before dinner.
If you like hops it's definitely worth trying if you can find it, just don't know what the shelf life will be. My In-Laws gave me a few for Christmas (he works for Sam Adams) and they were uber fresh, I usually don't get excited over their beer but this one was a definite keeper. (!) It's not often I can get my hop fix without breaking the ABV bank.
