    Not sure yet. It's definitely interesting. Trying to listen to it without bias to anything.

    Just had a Hopslam. No, it doesn't taste worse than last year's. It was delicious. The price is kind of hard to justify, but it really might be my favorite IPA.

    It is a Crazy Mountain glass! Got it this summer after playing some golf at Red Sky Ranch. Their canned beer is OK, nothing spectacular, but I like supporting the guys there. Cool little brewery I gotta say.

    Just hit up the Sucks again after a couple homebrews(Belgian Blonde and White IPA). Still got a 6 left, but I think I might need to get some more, or get a recipe for this fantastic beverage. Cheers and good night beer fans

    I'm having on of the foreign extras I got from a friend. He works at Von's, and his coors rep sells him extra beers for super cheap, and this time he bought a bunch of BMC type stuff and some heineken for $20, and the guy also gave him 5 foreign extras.

    My friend told me he had some guiness and other beers in the fridge on super Sunday, and I was pleasantly surprised to see these in there. He said "take em all, I won't drink em!".

    Great beer, doesn't bear any resemblance to any other guiness products.

    Had a pint of Natian Elephante IRA @ Hawthorne Hop House earlier... Not bad, but not memorable either.

    Now enjoying a bottle of Brown Shugga, which is hitting the spot.

    I feel like I need to catch up on enjoying some good beers, as I haven't been drinking much the past couple of weeks (been focusing on getting more job apps done), so a nightcap is definitely in order. Maybe two nightcaps...

    A Superb dry stout with vanilla and smoke notes. Brewed with a portion of Weyermann Oak Smoked Wheat Malt, and whole Madagascar and Réunion vanilla beans that have been added twice during the brewing and maturation process, for extra complexity.
    This ensures ’Charbon’ is a very pleasantly drinkable dry stout, with an interesting aroma and flavour to treat the real beer enthusiasts.
