    Can't argue with that, right? Consider yourself fortunate.

    I picked up a 6 pack of this when in IL a couple of weeks ago and it's a great hoppy Pale Ale. I could drink this any day of the week, all year long. What a fantastic beer! Cheers!

    Taste off: Troegs Perpectual IPA wins by a mile over the milder, light weight, but refreshing HIPA - possiblye Magic Hat's best? As reviewed below...

    H.I.P.A
    3.83/5 rDev +3.5%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

    An under-rated Hop bomb. The best I have tasted out from under the Magic Hat.

    A: Pours a very hazed, very light apricot with a mid sized white head that paints a alot of lace. Well done.

    Smell: Hops! Fruity, grassy, perfume-y, and slightly doughy.

    Taste: Follows the smell. An original hop bomb. Biscuit and caramel (cinnamon roll) up front with a piney / grassy hop follow on... then the finish is a bit watery but enough bitterness and hop tingle to satisfy. Very hippy, flowery.

    Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation, missing a bit of body in the finish. A bit mass feeling.

    Drinkability: A must try for Magic Hat. However, you wonder at all these seasonals, "IPAs on tour", as just a gimmick too far, but every now and then they almost get it right. This is an interesting refresher, hop bomb.

    I bought a sixer of that last week, enjoyed it quite a bit for what it is. But considering both are $8.49/sixer, Odell wins everytime.

    Damn, I almost opened a bottle of Boulevard Dark Truth Stout earlier but somehow spaced on International Stout Day. Whatever. I'll just pretend tomorrow is Stout Day :)

    Anywhooooo, I had some Fullsteam Beasley's Honey White today at lunch with chicken and waffles at Beasley's in Raleigh. And that was seriously tits. Since then I've had a bottle of Hoponious Union with dinner, and now I'm killing last night's growler of Wicked Weed Hop Diva (which could be in my top-five beers of 2013—so good!)

    Saude, galera!

    Ya know, I got a young boy that prefers Pepsi, but my oldest son shares Torpedo, Euro Pils, Chimay and Germans w/ me. My daughter likes reds. She is a young Irish lassie, after all. I wuz just thinkin'. I have always loved beer. It's no secret to my family. They will toast a cold one at my wake, for sure. Beer is the beverage of friendship. Good, good stuff.

    You know the rake is a bad thing? It's the money the casino takes per hand to make money off of a game that doesn't involve the house. Amazing movie though

    x2.

    The most interesting thing about that Pop-Up Session is how it gets better as it warms, yet I only get to appreciate this by the end of a glass if lucky. As a session IPA, who drinks this stuff slowly enough to allow it warm up?

    Had my Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Aged Wild Turkey Stout. It was good, a little thin but very intense.

    Moving on to BORIS from Hopping Frog. Looks good, waiting for it to open up a little.
