    Trying something new. It's OK, letting it warm up.

    Newish Sacramento Brewery: Track 7 double IPA from growler, purchased Saturday. Hits the spot on a lazy afternoon, doing some "work". Trying to figure out where our Belgium vacation (later this year) takes us and what beer is nearby.

    I'm on my 3rd Flower Power for the evening, and it's the last one I have left in my stockpile. This was something that I traded for with my latest east-coast trade. I like it, but I'm not sure I will go too far out of my way for more...

    Cheers ! ! !

    My very first Hop Stoopid. This makes me resent Lagunitas for not distributing in my area.

    Once again, I'm not drinking anything right now because I've got grading to do, but I think I'll be cracking into a howler either of Tired Hands Entropic or Liddle Fiddle later, HUMONGOUS COURTESY of lovindahops. Outta nowhere, Ryan proves that beer karma is real and ferociously sweet. Between this stuff today and jzeilinger's ridiculous generosity last week, I can't believe the good fortune I've had, beer-wise. Great way to ring in my birthday on Wednesday.

    Now I just gotta get this grading done so I can really enjoy the beer . . . :) And lovindahops & jzeilinger—don't worry, I'll do my absolute best to share these wonderful beers with other folks who appreciate the good stuff. It's the very, very least I can do to pay this incredible advocacy forward.

    Captain Lawrence IPA. This one is not growing on me. Far too much alcohol presence. Tastes like a DIPA

    Wife caught me packing whales in my suitcase and said no. So the whale slaying is on hold until Saturday. But thankfully there is a ton of awesome stuff around here.

    Went to Mad Mex for the first day of IPA week. They listed on the website the IPAs they'd have, but only when I got there did I realize those IPAs would be parceled out through the week. Bummer, because I really wanted to try the Victory KBomb DIPA, Victory NATO and Terrapin So Fresh. Gotta try to get the wife to go back out again later in the week.

    Boo hoo? I had half priced Racer 5, Flower Power, HopSlam and HopDevil on nitro (this one was a mess).
    Left with growlers of Green Flash Palette Wrecker and Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.

    Drinking a Lagunitas Sucks now, which my wife surprised me with a case of. I guess the hop gods have overall, been good to me.

    Wall of text, no pics, shitty poster.
