    On to Left Hand Nitro. I appreciated the Nectar, but I am not a hops person. I continue to try, we all know tastes can change, but I'll stick to stouts, porters and the like for now. I'll try again when it goes a little warmer out. Til then, there's more for all of you.

    I wasn't really impressed by this one. 3 months from bottling isn't ideal, but IMO had nothing to set it apart from the vast sea of IPAs out there. Maybe I need to track down a fresh one (if they release it again) to see if it lives up to the lofty ratings on this site.

    Sorry no pic. Way too much extra effort for a Monday. But I am enjoying a Southern Tier 2XIPA.

    Ya man I have only had this once but I definitely remember it being above average. IPA's can be so hit or miss though, variance between batches, hop freshness, and personal taste, but I did love it when I had it.

    I am drinking more of my homebrew APA cause like I made five gallons of this stuff and its gotta go somewhere!

    Even though I'm not an IPA guy at all, FW is just dropping in Texas, so I thought I'd give this one a try. Perty good, all things considered.
