    Tonight features a 1/2 growler of Six-Point Resin (IPA) which BA gave a 90 rating. Maybe 1 or 2 Liquor 43 little ones! Could use it after shoveling out today. Enjoy the weekend. :)

    The Miller is for my girlfriend and a few others coming over that aren't into hoppy beers. I'm only drinking 3 Floyds tonight.

    Done. Is the whole greater than the sum of the parts? Hard to say; but no matter how you drink these bad boys, you're in for a treat. Cheers!

    Last night our puppy was pounding fantome de Noel 2010 like a champ out the glass (only beer she's liked so far). Now she doesn't even look at me...

    That's awesome. I'm certain my dog has tasted more craft beer than most people. He's particular to Marshal Zhukov, but we only break that out during the holiday season. Cheers!

    I seriously think Union Jack IPA is a wonderful IPA that is very under appreciated and often overshadowed by Firestone's other bigger beers. Love that stuff.

    This Verdi Imperial Stout is dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi, one of Italy's greatest composer. I posted this picture of my Verdi because it still does not seem real that I have gotten it.

    Tripel Karmeliet. Unfair to other beers.
    [​IMG]
    Great grain flavors come through every time - hearty barley, smooth oats, and chewy wheat - so crisp and fresh; and beautiful: bubbles stream from the bottom, the head is there right to the end, leaving thick, fluffy lace down the glass... Honestly, flawless.

    Cheers!

    I liked Union Jack, but Double Jack is so sublime - it always overshadows the Union Jack in my mind.

    I haven't had Union Jack, but I had Double Jack on tap yesterday and enjoyed it quite a bit. Looking forward to trying Union Jack and comparing the two.

    Very nice beer, first time for me. I have an Alpine Nelson on deck. Definitely similarities between the two.

    Just started with a 4 Hands Divided Sky Rye IPA. Very good beer. I had in mind to finish off all my left over Celebration tonight, but checked and found there are still 6 in the fridge. Doubt I can do that after this bomber, but at least there will be a few left for later.

    Cheers!
