Enjoy By 4/1/13 by a country mile.
Stone Enjoy By IPA. Maine Beer CO. LIL ONE. Liked Hop Zombie from Epic too.
Indeed Let it Ride IPA
Surly Over Rated
Bitter Monk; I had it for the first time this year and I was extremely impressed.
Dayman & BA Abraxas
Its a tough one between my first HT, Dayman, and Bar Bar by Elevator was fantastic.
I can't think of a single new beer that I have had this year. Kind of depressing.
Edit: Just re-read thread title, it doesn't say "new".
New answer. Troegs Nugget Nectar.
Gandhi-bot and Abner
We just got CCB starting in Feb, soooooo... Jai Alai.
Runners up: Hopslam (On tap!), Sucks, and Enjoy By 4-01
Have a had some good stouts, but Hop is where my heart is.
Runner up: Sucks
Barrell Aged Framinghammer from Jack's Abby. Easily best new beer I've tried this year.
Upright Fantasia. I LOVE peachy beers, and this one is an absolute winner. Definitely an all-time Top 10, perhaps a Top 5 contender.
Black note and KBS
Pliny the Elder or this years Nugget Nectar
New beer for me was Permanent Funeral.
Best beer I had was BCBS Rare. Wow.
Permanent Funeral was my favorite new beer thus far.
Knee Deep's Batch No. 138, and Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown
Verdi Imperial Stout on cask, but the year is still young.
Stone Best By 4.01.13
The next one I open and drink.
I was introduced to odell's meddler while on a trip to kansas in February and fell head over hills for it....I need to figure out to get hold of some of that here is CA....I also really enjoyed russian rivers pliny the younger, supplication and consecration. I'm some what hooked on laguintas hopstoopid as well.
Harviestoun Old Engine Oil Special Reserve 10.5% ABV from a cask. So good I had to change my pants.
Gonna go with 8Wired iStout. Though it's a somewhat arbitrary decision because I couldn't possibly decide between my top 5-ish.
HF's Society & Solitude #6, Everett and Lawson's Fayston Maple Stout...
I have to go with KBS
Permanent Funeral is a definite NO. 1 so far in terms of newly released beers for 2013
Going with something new in 2013, so I'll say "The One They Call Zoe" by Hops & Grain
So far, it's a tie between Hill Farmstead's Abner and Kern River's Citra DIPA. If anything tops those, 2013 will have been a pretty exceptional year...
Toss up for me between Cherry Rye and TG Assassin.
I know Cherry Rye isn't a 2013 release, but I just recently got to enjoy if for the first time so for me it counts!
Best New Beer: Alchemy Hour
Best Annual Release: Nugget Nectar
CW BBBW. Keep going back to it.
actual new: Dayman
for me: Sucaba or Brandy Barrel Angels Share '10
Hands down in the pants, Victory Swing. Can't get enough. Can't remember the last time I put back a sixer of one beer in one night...before Swing came along and changed that. Complex, low ABV and so damn drinkable
Pliny the Younger, Hopslam and 2012 Black Tuesday for me so far this year.
Its a tie between Westvleteren 12(non US Release, shipped straight from Belgium) and Hunaphu. 2 Totally different beers, both very good
Great Lakes Alchemy Hour or Full Pint (Pittsburgh,Pa) Rye Rebellion fantastic bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. Took me by surprise.
If we're talking about beers that weren't released prior to 2013 then I'd have to go with Stone Dayman! That stuff is delicious!!
