    Finishing up a Ballast Point Big Eye IPA. Not bad but was expecting more, maybe an older bottle? Time for bed, gonna go dream about a bottle of Sculpin :)

    Started with a Nugget Nectar (You know what it looks like. I didn't even bother to take a picture. Hell, I drank it straight from the bottle- until about halfway through, when I became uncomfortable and rushed to the cupboard to get proper glassware.)

    I moved on to a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp #53 Floral IPA, tonight's winner of the Cleaning Out the Fridge contest:

    It's not bad, even for as old as it likely is. At 5.9%, I could see this as a good session IPA.

    They first released the 2012 in stubbies, then did 750s of it later on.

    2008 Bigfoot. It's at its peak, but I'm sorry to say I'm not as impressed with this vintage as most members are with fresh Bigfoot. I guess I'm picky when it comes to barleywines.

    Celebrating the basketball gods today for going into Daryl Morey's office this afternoon and enlightening him to remove our trash from the Rockets roster.. and he turned it into treasure.

    Patrick Patterson, Tony DouglASS, Cole Aldrich and Marcus Morris out.

    Thomas Robinson and some other poobahs and a draft pick IN.

    THANK YOU BASKETBALL GODS.

    I just had a Winter 12 from Hof ten Dormaal, now I'm trying the Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers. The Winter 12 is great, the smoked porter is interesting but a little weird, don't think I would get it again.

    A couple of my friends and me did a little 4 year Bigfoot vert last week, 09-12, and a fresh Barrel Aged Bigfoot. The 2010 vintage was the unanimous winner.
