    No one has even talked about Naught Temple since it was released – I guess you are too busy complaining about how Founders screwed you over on the KBS release tickets!

    Just so the boys from Iowa get what they deserve - it is the best representation of the style released that I can ever remember! Hey Founders – maybe you should get a bottle and make Backwoods Bastard taste half as good. And 3Floyds – just burn the brewery to the ground because when these guys entire your market, you are an afterthought.
    If you are a beer drinker and don't know about Toppling Goliath - you should...
    Good night beer drinkers of America!

    Zeelander was one of the best IPAs I've had in a long time, definitely rekindled my interest in the style. I'm eagerly anticipating the day they start distributing to Illinois.

    I've been hearing about their IPA's for a while now. I just set up a trade for Naughty Temple (I'm pretty sure I was the only one looking for it on the ISO:FT: forum) and I can't wait to try it next to Hand of Doom. I don't know how Founders would benefit from comparing Backwoods, their Bourbon barrel aged Scotch Ale, to a Rye Whiskey barrel aged IPA though.

    We were actually just there on Sunday.

    They've been making some fantastic beers. Session pales with great hop presence.

    Was gifted an Assassin by the guys while there.. kinda need to open it soon.

    They were one of my favorite breweries at GTMW 2012

    Edit: But you don't see much talk here, like everyone else has indicated, because Great Lakes != Iowa

    Well, this is the Great Lakes forum, so that's probably why. Their distribution covers a fraction of Wisconsin only, yet you expect everyone from La Crosse to Cleveland to know who they are after only being in business for a few years.

    I've had both Golden Nugget and Naughty 90. Both were decent, but too bitter for my liking, and overrated based on their BA scores. I'd like to try some of their other beers, but sober up before you start comparing these guys to FFF and Founders.
