    @FlintB got me yesterday - two boxes, in fact. The ol' double dong! Some of my favorite styles, too - sours and barleywines. Check it out:

    That salted caramel Flying Buffalo, and the Genetic Drift with Peaches... oh my. :flushed::flushed::flushed:

    [​IMG]

    And a killer selection of Kuhnhenn beers!

    [​IMG]

    A salted caramel 4th D? Wow, that beer is already nuts.

    Amazing boxes, Brian - thank you so much! The entire shot:

    Per your rules: blind beer review first!

    bottle has this weird pull tab with Asian writing peeking through.

    what the actual f**k? This pours green with thick green head.
    [​IMG]
    it smells both hoppy and like a rice lager.
    Taste is bitter. It’s thicker than a lager but with that slightly sharp bite. Then the hops hit and man- do they hit. It reminds me of when I popped a dry hop pellet in my mouth on a brew day. I tried pairing with some beef jerky and that helped some. My best guess is this is a Japanese lager with seaweed and hops? Thanks for the interesting beer, @y2kawakami!

    Kyoto Matcha IPA. Green tea must lend the color! This was a fun one, @y2kawakami!

    Crossposting in both groups here: three hours before the big game, this ominously labeled 30 pounder from @FlintB slams on my porch:
    [​IMG]
    Inside, a fantastic collection of Speciation sours from '18 and '19. A new brewery tick, have wanted to check these guys out for some time now. This deep line-up will keep me busy for a while:

    Initially it appears I safely escaped any penile box stuffers, but eventually ended up finding this little guy hiding under the lid:

    Cheers and many thanks Brian for this excellent box! Cracking the first botle in time for the kick off, timing was superb. And cheers to both groups for lots of fun over the last few weeks!

    Thanks for being a good sport on that one. I hope it was an experience. I know the green is what messes with you when it’s a blind review.

    Blind beer I received from @CanConPhilly
    [​IMG]
    hazy, but doesn’t smell like an ipa. I first thought apple from the aroma, or maybe pear. After it sits a minute I get cloves pretty brightly.

    light sweetness, smooth overall, not overpowering. Definitely a bit of clove or similar spice, but deftly added to remain light. I’m still feeling light fleshed fruit, but less and less after my initial impression . Some mineral and lightly herbal flavor. Minor background bitterness. Has some lager like flavor qualities, but nothing I can pin point.

    Reveal of blind beer.
    [​IMG]
    Not super sure how off I am. Definitely not apple, but grape is a white fleshed fruit!

    Based on google, this grape does have a spicy flavor profile.
    Thanks Matt, interesting brew!

    @locoformavs hooked me up with some WeldWerks. Thanks, Logan. I really love these guys, so was excited to have some new beers from them. Here is the Double Strawberry Milkshake. It’s got a strawberry Nesquik thing going on, but less sweet with some slightly tart fruit on the finish. Very fun!

    Sorry for the late posting, but a HUGE Thanks goes out to @SouthernSips for not 1, but 2 boxes of dongless beers. As tempting as those 5 sex toys look, I must decline and leave that up to @Dragginballs76 as you suggest.

    I must confess that most of these were consumed during the Superbowl and that Blind beer, as well as that Pumpkinator, was chugged on the Newbies Slack #chugs channel. All are new ticks for me and they have all been solid so far. Thanks again man!

    Blind beer review and only the beer from @Dragginballs76

    Hazy orange neipa with great mouthfeel and my guess either galaxy or mosaic hops. Def getting citrus and a little late piney taste. Regardless of what it i . Its spot on for the style.

    Came home from work tonight to a nice surprise courtesy of @Nichols33. Completely unexpected. A box full of Tree House a majority of which I have not ever tried before. What an awesome, incredibly generous box. And most importantly, it was dick free! Thanks so much man, very much appreciated. I’m already regretting joining in on this round 3 attack against you guys. :wink:

    @SouthernSips I am always down for Great Notion! That blind chug held up pretty well considering the age of it. Hopefully this link works so you can watch the chug...

    Much appreciated again for the boxes...and no dongs. I think I was more nervous of my wife seeing me unpack a penis or two from these boxes. I was already prepared to explain to her why I may be getting a dildo in the mail from a dude. HAHAHA

    Apologizes to @Joplamp, I have been slacking on posted this porch bomb he sent my way:
    [​IMG]
    We got a new of new ticks, including 3 or 4 wants and a couple new brewery ticks. Jordan also used some tasty looking stuff for packaging material. My kids were dancing around like they hit the lottery. Also included is a very nice looking glass and a note. Can't wait to crack into a bunch of these. Thanks a bunch Jordan!

    Had some people who like sours over for the Superbowl, so I cracked the blind beer from @Joplamp:
    [​IMG]
    Got a bunch of peach and a very balanced sour. I didn't get the normal oak from it, so I thought maybe some other barrel, but I couldn't place it at all. Love the balance on this one, my best guess was a peach sour from Speciation.


    In my over-indulging on the Super Bowl, I somehow lost the reveal pic, damn newbie mistake.

    Beer was https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/50724/426626/

    Thanks Jordan!
