    agree, 90 minute really got me into the crazy big craft beer and HS Loose Cannon showed me it didn't have to be at $9.99 a sixer. Left Hand Milk Stout however was a beer I got on a whim and made a challenge for other milk stouts to live up to

    Oskar Blues Deviant Dale's IPA
    I've always loved big citrus, mouth puckering bitter IPA's (and I still do).
    But this dank, oniony, garlicky IPA has opened up a whole new world to me...and I'm lovin it !

    Bourbon Barrel Sentience by Crooked Stave. Bourbon, quad, sour, deliciousness. I had several, for good reason. Phenominal.

    Alpine's "Double Nelson." Absolutely unlike any other beer I've tried, including regular Nelson.

    I finally busted open the Russian River T-25, and it was really damn good as expected.

    Also bought another bottle of Hopworks Ace of Spades - that is a really fantastic beer, especially for something that's at the grocery store for a while after its release.

    And just tried Elysian's Night Owl at a friend's recommendation. Normally not an Elysian fan, but that was a pumpkin ale done right.

    Oh wait, forgot one! Had the Oblique Coffee Blonde from Cascade last week. So weird to be drinking a light-colored beer and having it taste distinctly like coffee. It was a new sensation and delicious.

    Bells Wild One and HopCat Rapture both absolutely rocked my world.

    Shorts Kind Ale just surprised me with how good it was.

    Stone Old Guardian Barleywine. I hadn't had it in a few years, then tried it again about a week and a half ago. Mind blown.

    I 4got about New England Galaxy hopped Pale ale.....4.8% a.b.v. (Flavor Explosion!)

    That stuff told "La Daytime" to put it's tail between the legs and go home.

    You'd lose your marbles if you tried this Galaxy I speak of.

    Espresso Oak Aged Yeti. It was bottled in 2009 (unfortunately, I had no other dates to compare to) so I don't know how much of a difference that made... but my god, that was some good beer.
