    Loved both those...............'That's What She Said' was/is most certainly a wow beer for me. I have a full 750 ML waiting in my fridge.

    Hill Farmstead Nelson Sauvin!

    This is my first experience with a Nelson Sauvin single hopped beer. While I preferred Edward (a more 'traditional' pale ale), Nelson was so different and really exciting as it sets itself apart in a market saturated with other pale ales.

    Deschutes Fresh Squeezed was one of the better IPAs I've had in a while. Jack's Abby 2nd Anny Lager was delicious as well.

    Had a old engine oil last night from Harviestoun Brewery, man was that a good porter, combined with Ola Duba they make two of favorite beers, just wish they didn't cost 12 bucks or more a bottle

    Took a trip to Vermont this past Saturday with my dad and brother in law.

    I had heady for the second time, but it was fresh this time (last time I had it at about 6 weeks old). That wowed me. Best thing I have ever tasted. We had it at the brewery.

    1 hour later I had HF Edward on draft at the reservoir in Waterbury. Best APA I have ever had. However, I am sad not to take any HF home.

    Then walked across the street and had double sunshine, which wowed me again.

    3 best hoppy beers I have ever had. All brewed in a close vicinity and all served at bars in the same area. It was Saturday so HF was closed due to the festival. Cannot wait to make the journey again so I can get to see HF brewery.

    Great place.

    My mind and palate are blown. I don't think I will drink another hoppy beer the same again.

    I guess I plead ignorance on this but I was wowed by the sourness that hit me on the Dogfish Head Peche. I wasn't expecting that at all. But now I can say that I do love a sour beer, just took me a couple of bottles to wrap me head (and tongue i guess) around it.

    I had Brewery Vivant Contemplation over the weekend. Nice Belgian crispness, nice hops and the honey really comes through. Wish I could get it locally.

    I split a bottle of The Bruery Smoking Wood with a friend of mine a few nights ago & it really took us by surprise. Neither of us were really into smoked beers & weren't expecting too much after our latest encounter with the style (Oak Smoked Old Guardian was a drainpour for us). There was just the perfect amount of Rye barrel, & just the right amount of smoke to accent the other flavors in the beer. I seriously never thought I'd be floored by a smoked beer, but both of us kept commenting about how great & enjoyable it was.

    Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Wild. Just arrived on our shelves in six-packs, and wow does the funk and the spice from the Belgian yeast really complement the hoppy bitterness.

    Wormtown Hopulence. I went into it expecting an average DIPA and had something that was so much more.

    A new brewery opened in Trenton, NC called Beer Army and are starting to distribute around NC. Started brewing in April. They make a great IPA called Heroes Never Die. Here is the link to the brewery beer page.
    They won a bronze medal in the mild ale category at the recent U. S. Open Championships.
    They currently are kegging only but hop to move into cans soon.
    You can find their beer in New Bern, NC and lots of places in Raleigh, NC.

    Just visited Odd Side Ales brewery and was able to get Bean Flicker on tap. This beer blow my mind every time I try it. It is a coffee blonde ale that is crisp, light and full of flavor it hits the palate with just a hint of vanilla and a full flavor profile of a fresh french roast. I usually hate blonde ales due to their bland flavors and lack of complexity, but this beer is both complex and full of flavor. Love this beer
