    Started out with a Belgian White Homebrew while bottling a Two Hearted Clone. Now drinking Flower Power.

    Just got back from the bar. I had a couple of Sixpoint beers. Diesel was pretty mediocre and 3 Beans was quite good.

    Having my first Sofie and about to either play Devil May Cry or watch Top Gear UK. Also, I think this beer is pretty brilliant myself. Going to have to buy a couple more bottles for Summer.

    Is that a bad thing!? :p => :) Garlic flavor, a little bit but not as much as what I get from Gubna, which I really enjoy (when it's fresh) and prefer it over Alchemy. My impression is skewed because when we talk about garlic I immediately defer to Gubna and comparing the two (IMO) the score would be flip-flopped.

    Just being straight up and it's only a personal opinion. (everyone, fire away!!!!)

    A blast from the past. Maybe one I should have left on the shelf, given how it's drinking now. But at $1.69, I couldn't resist. A history lesson, if you will. Just not one I'm enjoying.

    OK, 'let the horizontal 120 picture go, but if I drank both of those "big bastards" I'd go horizontal too.

    Cheap night tonight. Started with Sam Adams Whitewater IPA, Double Agent IPL, and Irish Red. Just popped open a Trader Joe's (Firestone Walker) Mission St Anniversary Ale. All have been meh so far...the IPL is pretty enjoyable thought.

    The new Rampant IPA from New Belgium.


    Wow! Tastes shockingly similar to Enjoy By.

    This is definitely going to be a regular in fridge!

    It was great = real nice flavor profile with a slick malt backbone reminiscent of a fine scotch. I'll be going back to this one.

    The bottle shop that sold you an IPA from June should be fined by the beer police....

    Aw man, I see you blasted it in a review, that it totally unfair.

    I really don't see the problem some people seem to have with this glass. If mine ever gets broken due to it being 'easily tipped over,' I'll buy everyone who posted in this topic a beer. And I won't lie. ;)

    You're probably breaking all sorts of laws here..
