    First from my New York BIF box, this little number!


    Pretty nice IPA, glad to finally try it. Floral, piney, and slightly tropical, this one is easy drinking.

    Please tell me how you like it. I just picked up some harpoon Chocolate Stout as my first forray into chocolate stouts and I love it so much I am KICKING myself for not getting the four pack I saw of the Samuel Smiths.

    Picked this up on a whim the other week. Wish it was a bit more robust and features smoke more prominently

    Homebrewed vanilla porter. This is the first bottle I've opened from this batch. The vanilla is a bit strong on the nose, but overall the flavor turned out wonderfully, if still a bit rough. Hopefully it will mellow if I let it sit another couple of weeks. The truth is I brewed this one for cooking as much as for drinking, so I'm not terribly concerned.

    $9 8 pack cans, got more today. So delicious. Awesome deal for a craft beer.

    Top tier fruit beer. Glad it is still lingering on shelves. Another 4 pack will happen very soon.

    Outstanding. Amarillo and simcoe are an awesome combo all the time. Next family visit means more Ohio IPAs soon. Coming this Labor day weekend.

    Super fresh 6 pack. This is among the best american porters ever. Incredibly robust and complex for the ABV. Always incredible.

    Sipping on this one. Took me 2 hours, and all the better. Really opened up the longer it sat. Got sweeter and thicker the more it lost carbonation. Would call it more of a BSDA than a Quad, but thats what they were aiming for.

    Strange. Chocolaty but tart and strangely fragrant. I'm struggling to decide if I like it or not. It's incredibly complex but nothing dominates in the flavor profile.

    Seriously those words - "I'm struggling to decide if I like it or not" is my favorite thing about beer .

    Its always nice to have a conversation about an opinion rather than seeing it as a personal attack. In the end, it all boils down to intentions.

    I agree and it was nice of you to help get resin back on my store shelves like you did. Now that one I will buy often. =)
