    My personal feelings of the shift in climate is simple: the earth does as she will and it is us humans who have to change with it. This challenges everything we know about seasons as WE define them. I could go much deeper but shant for this eve...

    The hops have subsided, but are still around to keep the malt in check. I totally agree that fresh, this beer has a very bittering hop presence. While it's drinking great at 3 years, I'm real curious to see how it would do with 5 or even 7 years on it. Based on my experience with a fresh, 1 yr, 2 yr, and 3 yr I'd say it's best years are still ahead!

    Followed by alpine spring, yuengling, snow drift porter, and a guinness. Quizzo bar beers not so good :-(

    I'm settled. I'm well-settled. It's a great rivalry, but not nearly as great as the old Hawks/Stars rivalry.

    I was disappointed to find out that my local bottle shop sold through all of their Hop Slam, but this six of White Rajah is cheering me up.

    This is helping me feel better, too.

    The White IPA I made is fucking outstanding. WLP400 and lots of coriander and bitter orange peel. Still turned out balanced with a lot of clove and earthy spices with tropical fruits, pear, and peaches with the Zythos and Ahtanum hops.

    I'm pretty tired. A Nugget Nectar and a Stone Smoked Porter might do it for me this evening. It's time to pass out now, kids. G'night.

    Seriously. Trade for this. If you dont have beer to trade then throw money at people who can get it for you. Oh your broke? Trade your children, wife, mother, that kid that you sent 5 cents a day to. It doesn't matter. Get this beer in your life. I have a review up here. I was blown away.

    Cheers ladies and gentlemen!

    It's pretty damn good. Definitely rye-forward but it doesn't take away from a very smooth, golden base beer. If you end up grabbing some tomorrow you should let me know what you think. I plan on writing a review tomorrow at some point.
