    It's just an RIS that has been watered down all day.

    The artwork is a metal band playing in the rain with the crowd plugging their ears and paying no attention at all as they drink and shiver.

    100 pages is for amateurs. There's so much great (I'm using that term loosely) information from DLD that we have to start posting it in other threads too!

    Wow Mango Guppy is nice and easy drinking. Will be great for summer.
    Had a hard time finishing the Sweet Heart Waffle Mountain bottle on my own. I liked it but it was really sweet. Would have preferred one glass of it as opposed to the whole bottle, but what can I do.
    Haven't tried Galaxy Wolf yet, but it's in the fridge!

    Galaxy Wolf was a disappointment to me; was thinking it would be great after having Lupine. Sometimes I like piney, but this one was too much that it was off-putting. Definitely liked Mango Guppy - a great summer option for sure.

    Mango Guppy was really enjoyable! I'll be picking that up throughout the summer. I remember the second run of Lil'Citra was better than the first (it seemed like they dialed it in) so I'll be curious to see if thats the case with Mango Guppy.

    Wow, super impressed with Mango Guppy, it sort of has a toned down Fish series taste. I have a feeling this will be a top 3 most consumed beer for me this summer.

    I usually drink tons of lizard king over the summer months, but I think Mango guppy will possibly replace that this summer.

    With the labels out, you already know the answer. Better question is FWB- they take your orders yet?

    Not yet. Got excited when the normal email came through this afternoon. But alas, I will settle for two of my favorite PWs on the same weekend release. And very interested in the new Galactic Golden Ale as well.

    This is based on pure conjecture, but believe we'll have some BA beers before DLD. (Or if they're mean, ON that Saturday).

    Would make from some great photo ops for the BA beers to be in the bottle share photos.

    Not a bad guess. I was actually thinking this evening that they will hit right before or during CCBW.

    speaking of CCBW, i'm hoping PW does another takeover at Emporium. i went last year and loved a bunch of the stuff they tapped. i was reminded of pineapple Lizard King recently and how good it was because someone mentioned it in another thread.

    Guppy was great, but Galaxy Wolf was pine on pine on pine. I couldn't finish it alone it was so piney. I agree a little piney is good, but this was just overload.

    dang, I think I'm the only one that liked Galaxy Wolf but I'm super into pine and being blasted by pine.

    Sorry to bother. Where is Pipeworks can/bottle release schedule? I thought they had a week to week release schedule on their site?

    their (somewhat) weekly newsletter lists whats "coming down the pipeline". also check their social media accounts as they're active and post new and upcoming releases.

    I'm not a fan of mango guppy... something skunky about it. I don't have a better way to describe it.

    PW is starting to lose me tbh

    Tried the Mango Guppy and when cold it just wasn't there. Even at a moderate temp it was lacking. It almost has to get to room temperature to be at its optimal flavor profile. I give them props for trying as I want to see more sessionable beers from them. Good first attempt, I think there is some room to improve it. I'd like more of a West Coast IPA with mango, this struck me as a traditional English IPA with Mango.

    Anyone try Emerald Grouper yet? Does it have that same tartness that's turning some of us off the fish series?

    There is no fruit added to EG as those others have so I would think likely not.

    Had Emerald Grouper yesterday. No tartness at all to my palate. Pretty dank. I really really liked it. Keep in my mind, this year is my first time tasting all of these fish series, so I have nothing to go off of previously.

    Did anybody pick mango up from the dojo this past weekend, I think they canned a newer batch and just wondering the dates.

    Hey there. I have a question about Saturdays at the Dojo. I'll be in town just for this coming weekend and I'd like to stop by and pick up some fresh beer, but I don't really have time to stand in line. Especially, since it looks like rain this coming Saturday.

    Anyway, how quickly can I expect to get in and out around 11am?

    Thanks!

    Unless they have BA stuff, the last time I went I was in and out in like 2 minutes.
