    Moved onto a Sneak Attack saison as I wait for this column to write itself. Sadly not happening. Also, moving on to The Dark Knight.

    It's very good, but best they've made is TIPA. Had the oaked smoked old guardian earlier and drinking a hop karma right now. The oaked smoked was delicious and if you go into the hop karma not expecting a uge hop blast its very good as well. Complex brown ale flavors intertwined with some nice hop notes.

    Heresy for me, as well. A little thin to me, but I love everything else about it.

    K, I get the hype... very intense! Dank, funky, pungent, tangy fruit, nice malt backbone, some alco heat. Sold!

    Hinterland Maple Bock. Tastes like a pile of leaves in the fall. I mean that in a good way lol. I've really been enjoying all these different bocks (doppels, helles/maibocks, and regular bocks as of late).

    Keeping it simple tonight with some Summit Saga, now in 12 packs for under $12 can't be beat for the price.

    Founders Porter doesn't come in cans. (Eugene is a great beer though).

    Finishing with a Pipeworks Unicorn vs. Ninja. Being from IL, this might sound bias, but I think us midwesterners make the best dipas. Anyways I really enjoy that sweetness that comes through on this one.

    Last night's imbibements.

    Whoever said alchemy was a bogus science that could never produce gold never met the brewmasters at Great Lakes. Holy crap is this stuff good:
