    Looks like an interesting evening. I need one away from the everyday. Why not share?[​IMG]

    Just getting rid of these, because if I’m going to transport beer over state lines I want it to be a better beer.

    Fantastic pale ale as always, haven't had it in a while. Aromas and flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, apricot, citrus peel/zest, light pepper, and pine hops; with balanced caramel, toasted biscuit, honey malt sweetness; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; balanced creamy/bready malts and sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Very drinkable, not aggressive, 6%. I need to buy this more often. Such a classic. Perfectly balanced juicy Cascade/Centennial hop complexity, and dark/bready malts. Amazing style example.

    Fantastic NE APA. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, and light pepper/pine hops; with balanced wheat, biscuit dough, rye bready malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Very mild pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; creamy/bready malt and light sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering bitter dryness. Refreshingly drinkable, super soft feel as usual. Great use of Chinook, Crystal, and Simcoe hops for the style. Very juicy, fruity, and fairly dank/earthy hop complexity; with a perfectly balanced wheat/bready malt backbone. Not overly sweet. This is more dank/earthy than their others with the heavy C hops. Gone for the season, but still have a few left. Already have Cart Horse and Boss Tweed in stock.

    The one GABF medalist I have in my collection. January 2017 bottling. Definitely award worthy. Revolution Straight Jacket Barrel Aged Barleywine. Great with cigar and fire on a cool autumn evening.

    Fantastic Gose as always. Flavors of tart/sour cherry, lemon, lime, green apple, wheat, cracker, coriander, sea salt, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness and lightly spicy/tannic fruit finish. Balanced cherry/lacto acidity, salinity, and grainy wheat creaminess in the mouthfeel. Highly drinkable and refreshing, minimal puckering. One of my all time favorites in the style. I drank over a case last year. Does not feel quite as lactically sour as previous years, but still fantastic and easier drinking. Found some old back stock from last year. No fresh stuff in MI I guess this year. I can still get more though. Holding up well, hope we get them next year.

    Delicious pale ale as usual. Found some fresh singles again finally. Flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, and pine hops; with moderate caramel, toasted biscuit malt sweetness; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium-plus bodied; balanced sticky/resinous hops and creamy/bready malts in the mouthfeel; a touch slick. Light-moderate increasing resin dryness, never astringent. I love it. Will keep grabbing this when am in the mood for Centennial/Columbus hops and a heftier malt bill for the style. Pretty darn juicy and bright on hops; and very drinkable. Hoping to see Deviant Dales or G'knight make a return some day. I haven't had either in over 5 years. Unfortunately Powers distributes them, so I won't get my hopes up. Still haven't had the Passion Fruit Pinner either.

    Moderate pour yields a thin head that hasn't subsided in ten minutes as I'm waiting 'til it warms. Murky brown body as seen in many barleywines. Nose of candy sugar, raisins, sweet cake, and as it warms, other dried fruit aromas come forward with other sugars including molasses, brown sugar, and caramel. No real hop aroma as of yet, but maybe as it warms more hops will surface. For flavor perspective we have the aforementioned sugars and dried fruit and now some hop bitterness tries to muscle its way in but is no match for Team Sugar! What a fantastic sipper we have here and all this talk of sugar may scare you away, but it's not too sweet because it mostly has just the flavors of the sugars. My first BW from De Molen and I'm impressed. Almost stout-like characteristics in that it's smooth and not harsh at all. Very nice feel and overall, do not pass this one by, grab it! Cheers!!!

    Amazing beer.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks @superspak! 4.29 out of 5. Near perfect nose, great grapefruit and orange on the palate with a great alcohol burn. A little more carbonation than expected but still a relatively creamy, fantastic NE IPA. Ellison's game is HOT.

    Back from the hot tub with a Lagiuintas Super Cluster DIPA , hopefully heading to Z land. This is a great version of this song. The King Bisquit Hour version I heard decades ago, was superior IMHO, but can't find it:grimacing:



    Out here, carry on!

    Tons of good Oktoberfests out there, but this one is in my top few. Great fruity characteristics while still retaining a lot of traditional Bavarian personality while revealing slightly hidden complexities underneath. Highly recommended. 4.07 out of 5.

    Amazing coffee stout! I don't think I like it more than Founders Breakfast Stout like many BAs are saying, (in fact, I think I still like FBS better) but based on its own merits this is indeed excellent.
