    What'd you all think?

    I had fun. The Cynical CDA was mighty. Woo. Wanted to try the single hop but it was blown by the time I got there. We went after the Fruit Beer Fest.

    Thoughts. Comments!?

    This was my favorite....

    “Mighty” #45 – Bourbon Maple is a Cascadian Dark Ale layered with vanilla and oak from aging in Kentucky bourbon barrels as well as Vermont maple syrup sugaring off the finish.

    The Bourbon Maple was excellent. I was disappointed with the Pray for Brandy. I felt the beer gained nothing from being aged in brandy barrels. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with a number of the offerings. I've never really been impressed with 10 Barrel beers in the past.

    What'd you folks think of the line-up overall? Think they're improving in terms of quality/taste with the new brewers, etc.?

    I'm currently drinking an IPA from the 6 pack and I can confirm that the recipe change had a great effect on it. Much more hop forward and flavorful. Has a nice bite to it.

    Bourbon Maple blew my socks off. I haven't really liked 10 Barrel in the past, but they really stepped up their game after Shawn Kelso joined the crew.

    I would do that Bourbon Maple over CBS in an instant.
