    I just drank my very first BCBS tonight. OMFG. Yes I said OMFG, and no, I am not a 14 year old girl. It blew my cerebral cortex away.

    Allagash Coolship Red for me. Appearance, Smell, Taste. Everything was just spot on.

    Beers that have recently blown me away...
    Living in Wisconsin I have been used to New Glarus offering great beers but recently I have recognized how well put together Moon Man (APA) is. I've also recently drank Lagunitus Maximus and have been throughly impressed. Also grab yourself some Stony Brooke Red from Sam Adams.

    The first batch of Lotus Eater from Nepenthe (NH) - like Heady good. They're apparently still messing around with their process on this, and subsequent batches didn't even come close to the first. Fingers crossed they can replicate batch #1.

    Three Floyd's Alpha Klaus, easily one of the most complex beers I've ever had. The flavor profile was wild

    Firestone Wooky Jack blew me away as far as a Black IPA. And Alpine Nelson was so unique I was pissed I did not live in San Diego.

    Jack's Abby India Pale Lager blew my mind completely. It is so refreshing and crisp. Excellent beer all around.

    Bell's Barrel Aged Batch 9000. I'll just say that it was so good that I was turning down Black Note to drink it!
