    Great Lakes Rye of the Tiger! And my home-brewed Rye IPA for comparison sake. Both very good.

    Hour drive to the brewery from me, always freshies on the shelf here. Let me know I will gladly sail some your way if you are ISO. One of my faves for sure.

    I gave it a shot because I like red wine and I like IPAs but this stuff is feels like it should come in a juice box, it's overly sweet and fruity with just a tiny bit of hop bitterness in the finish . At least they put it in 12ozers and I could get a single, I would be pissed if I paid like $10-15 for a bomber of this.

    One of my favorite IPA's as well. Thanks for the offer, but we get Flower power pretty regularly here in Jersey.

    Nice avatar by the way.

    It's a sour night for me: kicked things off with a 2012 Cantillon Kriek, followed by a 2011 Weyerbacher Riserva. Who knows what's next. Cheers!

    We do have a great selection of beers here in Southern Jersey but I have noticed that freshness suffers because we do not get the product as quickly as you would expect.

    Sipping on a can of Triangle IPA from down in Durham, NC. It's weirdly undercarbonated, though. Still tastes alright (if a bit muted, as far as hops go), but really quiet.

    Aaaaaaaand now I need to do a shitload of writing.

    No pictures right now because we're in the middle of a BCBS tasting (will back my words up later on with a picture)... 2009 BCBS, BC Coffee, BC Cherry Rye, and BC Vanilla. Started the evening killing a growler of Abner, Society & Solitude #1, and a bottle of City Beer/The Bruery - The Wanderer (an AMAZING sour beer), and Surly Darkness.

    Doing this with DaveHack, Millerbuffoon, and Knapp85. Fist pump!
