    I told myself I wouldn't buy a Puffer because I had too much beer already...and then ended up getting 2 yesterday. :flushed:

    Sometimes I think PW needs to take a vacation or something.

    Drank a Black Tuna about a month ago and it was still going strong. Had it in wine cellar at 55 degrees
    Had Puffer last night - huge passion fruit nose and palate with honey on the finish. Almost a bit too sweet compared to other fish, but still a solid performance. Bot in western burbs

    that flower child is fucking magical. Mandarina ninja i'm sure will be another great addition to that family. And i have thoroughly enjoyed the cocktail inspired beers.

    Fairly certain: Jones Dog 3x (2x in 12oz bottles once in 22oz I believe), Abduction just once. Murderous 2x (once in 12oz, once in 22oz I believe).

    note that the double batches are released concurrently. I would probably consider those single releases. and as @RP13 mentioned, the 2013 releases were in 12 oz bottles. everything else has been in 22oz.

    Yeah, I just remember it because of all of the "why is batch 2 not as good as batch 1" blah blah blah
     
  26. spicoli00

    spicoli00 Defender (633) Jul 6, 2005 Indiana

    Batch 2 is never as good as batch 1, that's like a universal rule:wink: i've had all of them except for the As You Wish, and they were all very good to excellent.

    As You Wish... is phenomenal. It sat on shelves for quite a while, probably because of the artwork. It has a different look than the typical "Tales from the Oak" bottles, so I think that a lot of people didn't initially realize that it was barrel aged (or how awesome it is, for that matter).

    That's what I was thinking as well, but noticed it's not even on PW's batch listing. 473 and 474 are missing.

    Yeah Puffer is fantastic. My favorite of the drug fish series. The passion fruit and citra hops are perfect together. Very glad I picked up a second one/if you're looking for one, let me know.

    Same here. In a solo cup (hangs head in shame) on the metra down to the city. Still, I thought it was fantastic. Big fruity nose and delicious.

    I had the regular Elijah and it was great, so when I saw they had the BA it was a no brainer. Yea Niche cellars a ton of beer and now sell to go even though they are a restaurant.
