    I was able to order mine while waiting to pick up my bottles of Hawaiian speedway, on my way to pick up Devils teeth and monsters park rye. Headed to pick up my monkish bottles now

    I hope something else is releasing soon. I'm starting to get concerned that I might not have enough beer

    Yeah, and I hear that coffee in there is, like, sort of, a'ight too. Whatever his name is that roast that stuff.

    Was that the quickest sell out for HPB??

    If so, expect it to get quicker and quicker as their name gets out

    Raised Eyebrow B1 lasted... maybe 40 minutes at best. This will be their second fastest seller.

    I think initial sellout of Raised Eyebrows happened in less than 10 minutes and individual bottles popped up until 12:40pm.

    For me GJG is the most coffee forward beer I've ever had. I think even more than BCBCS. In a good way. Maybe because it's still so fresh

    Will be stoked to try the bourbon barrel version

    glad i got a bottle of this. i havent had it yet, but hows the mouthfeel on this beer?
     
  18. clayfu

    clayfu Initiate (186) Apr 27, 2010 California

    high acid, so you get that almost minerality texture on your tongue. Then it goes down smooth as it's not heavy at all (definitely not thin)

    I know it's not as sexy as GJG but the latest batch of Wake Up! should be going on tonight or tomorrow night at the Herm.

    Not until a release I'd think. I didn't ask. Maybe for GJG and Neighborhood pickups?

    nice, cant wait to try it. Mouthfeel is a big thing i look for in a stout. thin mouthfeel can really kill it for me. but over the top, underattenuated can destroy it, too. Im glad everyone is enjoying it going to try it this Thursday.

    I feel like the extra couple percentage points of ABV really helped the body of this batch of GJG. It's just thick, rich, velvety goodness.

    Somehow ended up with 8 bottles of GJG. My link worked on Friday, then I received an email saying the link was no good, so I bought 3 on Saturday, and then picked up all 8 of them today. Hopefully these will ease the pain of the Parabajava clusterfuck.

    Parabajava clusterfuck? Not in Paso Robles. I got there about 90 minutes before the release and picked my allotment easily-peasily, about a half-hour wait once the doors opened.

    Looking forward to picking up my GJG and doing a side-by-side with Parabajava.

    I'm a hardcore hpb fanboy, but I think a parabajava v gjg batch 2 might be a one sided fight. Tho I hope I'm proven wrong.

    Why don't we wait until BA GJG before we start comparing it with BA coffee stouts...?
