    Pre-gaming with a little bit of homebrew. Unfiltered IPA. I think this one may be a bit oxidized, but it's got a nice, musky, earthy hop flavor.

    Breckenridge Avalanche Ale paired with a London Broil, tamed pepper, and sharp cheddar panini. Solid!

    Going on a beer break for two weeks and signing off with this one. Man, this stuff is AMAZING. It packs the punch of any Bourbon County, with only 8.9% ABV. Lush, sweet and delicious.

    Might as well start off my day with my first ever one of these. Watching some pens hockey followed by the SB... Not a bad day!

    On my third cup of black coffee, but will be splitting growlers of Alesmith IPA and Ballast Point Sculpin with the family later as we watch the Super Bowl and eat homemade carnitas/tortillas/beans/rice/guacamole/salsa for dinner.

    But I don't come without music...

    Seeing White Buffalo later this month. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Cheers, all. Go 9ers!

    1/5/2013 I think. just finished mine off last night. The best IPA I have ever had. Although I havent had a lot of the real highly rated ones around here since I am on the east coast.

    First of the day. Gotta say this is the first of the Bourbon County varients that I struck out on through normal distribution and while I did take the time to track one down in trade I'm glad I didn't go overboard on it. It's good, don't get me wrong, but I still prefer regular and coffee to this by a fair degree. Glad I got to try it though, worth the hunt.

    This picture didn't turn out as good as I was hoping, but my parent's back yard is very photogenic with the right camera. I guess this will have to do. Two Hearted, the beer is outstanding though!

    I hear that. Heady edges it out for me, but Ghandi-Bot is my clear #2.

    Oh the glass was clean. That beer was just massively carbonated.

    I feel the same. Ghandi bot has a very slight boozyness that stops me from drinking like I can with HT. that's good BTW.
