    Been on the road for a couple weeks. Got home early this morning to find a bunch of boxes waiting for me! It was a good week!

    [​IMG]

    Though not a trade, I thought these were pretty cool!

    [​IMG]

    These were from bluewolf17. 2011 Darkness...Can't wait to taste that one!

    [​IMG]

    A couple long-time wants of mine from Mishuggah. Just look at those sexy bastards!

    [​IMG]

    From Steebo777...Not sure which I like more...the glassware or the 4D. Maybe I'll pour the 4D into the glassware...perfect...

    [​IMG]

    Last, but certainly not least, from Lurkerson! Darkness, Abyss, and that bottle of damnation looks intriguing!

    Pretty good week overall. If only I could stay home long enough to enjoy some of it!

    Just grabbed a case with the same date. Nothing beats an IPA thats freshness can be described in hours (72) rather than days.

    the bottom was busting out of the box! sent by Arsenal_MC according to him he's a fairly new trader...couldnt tell one bit when i opened this box

    [​IMG]

    original agreement was small and simple
    [​IMG]

    everything else was just him being an awesome BA and a highly recommended trader!!

    Just wanted a 4 pack of Hoptium but when I finally saw Porcine Unidragon for the first, I HAD to grab some, Had Too. Might as well grab a Lucky 13 too I guess.

    My mini haul. I've gone back to Gangster Frog IPA probably 4 times in the past two weeks. It's that good.

    First time posting here (although I've had many great trades). This photo commemorates an epic trade with Shrode21 that started off a little rough--leakage on my side, breakage and FedEx delivery exception on his first shipment (100% FedEx's fault, this guy packs like a motherf'r). Anyway, after box returns and shipping delays, here's how he makes good:

    [​IMG]

    Agreed upon:
    Zombie Dust x12
    Gumballhead x6
    Permanent Funeral

    Extras:
    Arctic Panzer Wolf
    Akari Shogun
    Rye of the Tiger
    Crooked Tree IPA
    DFH Palo Santo Marron
    Tyranena The Devil Made Me Do It!
    FFF nonic glass

    Thanks, my man, for your patience, generosity, and awesomeness.

    Do not hesitate to trade with him!

    I tried the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale last night. I rated it a 3.21 overall. I was not overly impressed. It wasn't bad by any means, but it just struck me as another sweet brew, but with a bit of Bourbon nose (I don't go much for the sweet brews. Give me an IPA or Pilsner any day). It wasn't even an interesting sweet like caramel, or licorice. Just sweet. Frankly, I liked Narragansett Bock more - just to compare it to another sweet brew (being originally from RI I have a natural tendency to think of Narry as our local swill. But it's actually much better than that).

    I felt pretty much the same way, but a little more harsh. I just felt bad when I saw the pick up, as more people than not named it one of the worst BA beers in a thread I was reading.

    Find an overly bitter beer and blen, maybe you'll make magic!
