    I'm a huge fan of Head Hunter; it's wonderful living in Pittsburgh and having access to it whenever I want.

    As for new beers I've fallen in love with:

    Ballast Point Victory At Sea
    Great Lakes Alchemy Hour
    Three Floyds Zombie Dust
    Dark Horse Plead The 5th
    Revolution Anti-Hero

    De Dolle Stille Nacht and De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserve 2010. Interestingly, I had them during different sessions, but just looked back and saw they were my two highest rated in last several months.

    Good idea for this thread. It made me look back and see what my BA review scores show what I've really enjoyed lately.

    I tried Alesmith's Decadence 2012, and I'm pretty sure I would resurrect my grandmother and then send her back to the grave again to have this beer some more. Also loved Lost Abbey's Red Poppy, but not at its price point.
