    Having a Bass IPA now. I actually like this. The aroma isn't too strong, but it turns out that I find it kind of refreshing (in spirit; not so much in taste) to find a beer that's quite bitter without a lot of late hopping.

    Best of the bunch, but I highly recommend being intoxicated. Goes from a hint of syrupy sweetness to a random generic fried food flavor. Sriracha was all right but not spicy at all, and the cheesy garlic bread was just terrible.

    Buuuuh, this one immediately jumped into my top 5 DIPA, first time I had it. Now I crave it all the time. This is some seriously amazing stuff.

    12.5%ABV "IPA" from South Carolina of all places.
    its more of a barleywine than IPA.
    The first couple of sips tell me I'm in for a wild ride

    I'm really enjoying it, I can see why it gets a lot of hype/acclaim. I'm not usually a huge fan of reds, but this is pretty damn good. I love the heavy resin/pine aftertaste.

    My 3 on the menu tonight were Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel, the new Rogue Voodoo Donut Chocolate Banana PB, and currently drinking a De Dolle Stille Nacht. I really wish the Voodoo Donut was a porter or a stout with that flavor profile the ale consistency just didn't work at all. Good thing I had Stille Nacht as a backup because this is incredible
