    Lagunitas Born Yesterday was incredible, and I can't wait to crack my first Founder's Harvest to compare.
    Also Founder's Backwoods Bastard. Oh, man, that is some good barrel-aged amazingess.

    Expected Born Yesterday to be good, but it was the growler of Hoppy Birthday I picked up at the same time that made me say, "Wow!"

    Two that come to mind, although "WOW!" might be a tad strong, are GF/Alpine Nelson and damn close to wow in lowercase: Born Yesterday.

    Calm Before the Storm made me say, "Wow". A yellow beer that tastes of coffee, I was impressed.

    Other Half We Been Out Here In Orbit. A stand out Imperial Stout in a world where there's too many mediocre Impys.

    And I know I'll get killed for this one...

    Dogfish Head Higher Math. At 17% a sipper for sure, yet the port like flavors they were able to develop made it go down way too easy.

    Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. Although many BA members had it before now I had not and it went beyond my expectations.

    Finally had 1st Heady and Focal while in VT recently. Both WOWs for me. Even with all the hype around them, still wow beers for me.

    Heavy Seas Loose Cannon IPA.

    For you IPA lovers this is an outstanding IPA not sure how to describe it except it is the most delicious IPA I have ever had and at 7.25% to boot. Simply amazing stuff.

    Had this today, very tasty, was a little apprehensive about pomegranates in a Belgian strong pale ale.

    Just had The Bruery/Jester King Collab Imperial Cabinet and holy wow! Huge Vanilla up front and in the nose, then citrus and spice and a twist of sour on the back end. Seriously, one of the most interesting beers I've had in a long time! Extremely unique. I've never had anything quite like it. I want more, please somebody offer me one for trade!!

    2011 Kate the Great from Portsmouth I had Monday was unbelievable, but the 2014 Barrel Aged Sump from Perennial I had last weekend was the best beer I ever had. I also had the new Goose Island Rare on Monday which was a very close third. It was a good week!

    Sierra Nevada's Celebration. Had it for the first time a few days ago and was totally blown away. Can't believe it took me so long to come to such an amazing beer. Looking forward to more in the very near future.
