    Thought Id start off the new day well.
    Heady Topper. Never thought Id get to try this. Only had a pint so did the half and half route. So much sediment. SOOOOO much hops. Literally tastes like the hop storage room at the brewery i work at smells like. Pretty cool. Really light feel for a 8% ale. I can see why this is so highly revered. Wish we had distro here in western Canada!

    Nice-I just had heady for the first time recently. Right now, I'm drinking my personal whale-Rare. Boozy, yet really smooth. Lots of bourbon, vanilla, oak, fudge, and caramel. Thick and viscous. Decadent. Liquid awesome!

    2013 batch. Every sip is an experience. Quite possibly the most complex imperial stout I've ever had.

    Just had a Lagunitas Maximus...when it's fresh it's quite possibly one of the most under-rated DIPA's out there.

    One of the best photos I have EVER seen on these threads.
    A) I love the outdoors/hiking/fishing and would love to visit your fine state
    B) Any chance I can order or find Hill Farmstead in NJ, NY or CT? Heard
    so much about it and have tried almost all of the great craft breweries in the US.

    All winter I was waiting for the right occasion to post a photo like this with the mountains (North and South Kinsman for those interested) covered in snow but this nice spring day will do. I've been lucky enough to live/work in some pretty beautiful places around the White Mountains and the view never gets old.

    A) We'd love to have you. The White Mountains are a great place to clear your lungs of all the Jersey smog.
    B) HF is pretty much a Vermont only thing. Occasionally a few kegs will make their way out of state to select bars in Boston, NY and Philly but for the most part you have to either go to the brewery or find it on tap at some of Vermonts finer beer establishments.

    Had a pint of Saison Diego at lunch with my dad, over at Alto Cinco in Syracuse. It was pretty good. Enjoyed it just fine, but I'm glad I didn't spring for a $14 4-pack the other day.
