    right on. No worries. Wasn't sure and always willing to help where I can. It is pretty foul, but at the very least it's actually me. Don't get that too often on the internetz now a days.


    Now this I almost grabbed Monday night. I had a bomber of the Sculpin and I just wasn't impressed at it's price point. I also have the same toaster oven.

    Very insightful lyrics! I do not mean to say this but I know that living in NJ it is very tough living in a state where there is a lot of stuff that happens. I live in a town that is so diverse and has so much art and music that it has inspired the surrounding towns. Musically, it is amazing how someone can rap at this level which rapping uses your mouth like another instrument! I have seen beatboxers in my local coffee shop that made my jaw drop!

    Thanks for this and many cheers!

    Chateau Jiahu from Dogfish Head - one of the "ancient ale" series.
    I try all of their weird beers, it seems - I've tried more beers from DFH than any other brewer.
    This was similar to Midas Touch - I think they both use the honey and muscat grape combo. Obviously, I like DFH's stuff, but this was a bit off the mark for me - a little too honey-sweet and slick than what I was in the mood for.
    Still a good beer experience.

    Whereabouts in NJ? I'm not really into rap all that much but his talent is pretty crazy.

    Nah, Carolina Homes. Probably the same source for inside materials though, I wouldn't be surprised at all.

    I live in Collingswood which is about 4 miles or so from Philadelphia. And you said it! When someone can make you enjoy and admire a style you normally do not it can not be communicated how great that is!

    Late January if I remember correctly which may explain a little bit but I had it probably 3 weeks ago so it couldn't have been 6 weeks old, if that. Not saying it wasn't really good I have just had better at 11.99 a bomber.

    Sup y'all?! It's been a long ass week so far so, I figured it was time for a beer. Tried Hop-15 Ale from Port Brewing for the first time. Not too bad. Very piney, spicy, citrusy hops. Super bitter beer. Bottled on 3/6 so it was relatively fresh. I'd try it again. Having a Sucks while watching the various Boston sports teams that play at the same time this time of year.

    So I returned to the store for another beer or two. I picked up a 750ml of Duchesse de Bourgogne its alright, I love the Belgians they brew it better. I use to love Belgian beef as kid too but that stew was brewed with Schaefer not chimay or some such. I prefer flanders fred however this is nice one. ~happy tippling~

    First-ever homebrew (IPA). Not terrible, but back to the lab for sure.

    I'm finishing this up right now. I had to take a sip before snapping a picture. I wish I could still buy this in six packs.

    I hear you. To me they taste similar, although I do think the Sculpin is slightly better it is too expensive to enjoy regularly. That toaster oven is a die hard!

    Happy to have a team that won the world series in the last century and an owner who, not laudable, but still didn't deplore an acceptable man.
