    Playing off this....why is every single Red IPA a seasonal that comes out this time of year? I love a good Red IPA but have no need to drink them all at one time. Would love for them to be spread out over the year a little better. Maybe I am crazy, actualIy I know I am, but I do think a Red IPA would taste pretty damn good in the summer and fall.

    Pretty impressive legs on the glass after that initial sip with this "old" / classic beer ...

    ... celebrating with Shaun White with his spectacular Gold Medal win, and the "oldest" one in the field too. His last run crushed it! (Not particularly thrilled to see him dragging the American flag through the snow :unamused:, but nevertheless, stoked he won!)

    I said the same thing to my wife. I'll cut him some slack, since he seemed to be distracted by something :thinking_face: and someone randomly handed him the flag.

    In the Flying Tomato's defense, he was a bit overwhelmend when being handed that flag. Thrilled he pulled through!

    I am drinking Oro Negro from Jackie O's Pub and Brewery an Imperial Stout brewed with black walnuts and conditioned with vanilla beans, oak staves, cacao nibs, cinnamon sticks, and habaneros, ABV 10.00%. It is a different kind of stout. Roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and walnuts, but you can also taste the rest of the stuff, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, and above all the habaneros. It's spicy, significantly spicy. Not too much, but enough to make pronounced. It comes out very good.

    Good evening, all, and happy Mardi Gras! Hope your day was fatter than mine. Our church hosts an annual Shrove Tuesday pancake lunch and supper, and I spent most of the day mixing pancake batter in a kitchen full of smoking griddles. It wasn't nearly as glamorous as it sounds. Now it's time to kick back for a minute or two, since it's back to work tomorrow. This is Crowd Control, from Southern Prohibition Brewing, Hattiesburg, MS. BA says this is an IPA, the brewer says IIPA. Whatever you call it, it's one outstanding beer for sure. Shout-out to @Squire123 for this gem! :slight_smile:

    Well damn, maybe I need to see one to appreciate the beauty of the water that was in that can...

    I can always for some reason justify spending $4 on a can. Bud, however I can't justify when other options are so readily available!

    This beer is incredible. With stuff like this around, why do folks wait in line for Tree House? I mean Tree House is good, excellent even...but this right here is magic.

    Collective Arts out of Hamilton, Ontario has their importing offices here in my hometown of Stowe, VT. One of their owners is a second home owner in town and their art director lives here full time with his young family. Great people, great beer, and great artwork. They have a roster of over 100 artists from all over the world. Most of their beers have 4 different labels per beer and if you're lucky, you get all four in a 4-pack! Cheers!

    I do spend $4/can or more ... i won't say often ..... but not rare either. Sometimes that <wk-old Equilibrium, or Industrial Arts, or Barrier, or Finback, or Grimm, or ....:wink: calls out to me.
    This, for example. Out of a growler, from the brewery up the road. About as much as the above, and on par with those. :slight_smile:

    Yummy & fresh Julius.

    BUT! Still not as good as that Vanished Valley Cease & Desist I had. Hype holds a lot of weight, but at the end of the day, it's about what makes your palate happy - which Julius certainly does, just to a lesser degree :astonished::blush::grinning:


    That's why people still buy the SHIT out of Torpedo and Founders' Breakfast Stout.

    I'm of the camp that says if the beer is fantastic, it's worth the $4/can price. Likewise sometimes Miller Lite is okay too.

    Wasn't a huge fan when I had my first taste of it, but it's definitely growing on me.

    I'm drinking the first sam adams I've ever bought from the store, their NEIPA. It's not bad. 9 bucks for 4 pints at 6.8 abv is a reasonable value, especially when put up against the other more local option, M-43. Of course M-43 is more renowned, but it can be too juicy some times.(I know, NEIPAs are supposed to be juicy) I don't mix beers, but sam adams and M-43 may be decent candidates. The bitterness of sam adams and over pineappley flavor of m-43 would be balanced out. I may try it...
