    Folks,

    Oldie but Goldie title - but enjoyed tonight.

    Bridgr Road / Nogne 0 India Saison to start with to sour things up, followed with a Green Flash Racer 5 which wasn't the hop bomb I thought it might be. Coopers Pale to level the playing field, new pack but seemingly not new taste.
    Then shared a large Chimay Red with the family as a taster before dinner. Classic

    Yer I find Racer 5 rather underwhelming

    Personally I did Victory Festbier (quite good actually)

    Victory HopDevil (not really impressive for an IPA, I preferred their Festbier)

    Green Flash West Coast IPA (yep, everything you want it to be)

    Brooklyn Monster Ale (alcohol/sweet bomb, but not that bad)

    Weyerbacher Old Heathen (probably the best of their range that I've had, but the others were pretty crap)

    Bridge Roads/ Nogne Indian Saison (both of those at Albion Hotel in Newcastle)
    4 Pines RIS
    Rocks IPA (last two at Harts Pub)

    Sunday 18th
    - Couple of pints of Feral White at the local (the only decent beer on tap since
    they replaced LCPA with Miller's)
    - Back home for Saison DuPont
    - Gage Roads Saison (found a lonely bottle at a random bottleshop last week)
    - Finished off my growler of Nogne O #500
