    Had this one before dinner... Even having roughly 90 days of age on it, it was still bursting with juicy grapefruit flavor. Was really impressed with it, actually.

    Having this for the first time now... My pop enjoys it far more than I do, but he's known for his love for pilsners and I'm known for my general indifference towards them. Gotta show love for my local guys though, and they provide a solid offering here, I gotta say.

    Ya. It's overpriced. Very good though. But I'd rather buy a $9 Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti or one of the comparable Clown Shoes Imperial Stouts. I had to buy it to check it off the list so to speak. :sunglasses:

    I seriously have the best boss ever. Wasnt going to buy the Beer Camp pack ($27 after tax was a bit much for me right now), but my boss stepped in and hooked me up. I had the Chico King, Electric Ray, and Torpedo Pilsner tonight. Really looking forward to the rest of the pack.

    Moving onward:

    Juicy citrus/tropical hops for a session IPA. Really good.

    Need to get more of this. One of the best fruit beers out there. Last of this recent 4 pack.
    [​IMG]

    A classic favorite.

    Outstanding every single time. Glad fresh 4 packs flooded the state this month. More will be purchased soon.

    Wish that I could upload a pic - don't have my phone with me. I'm about to crack open my very first, and quite possibly my last bottle of CBS (I only have one)... I purchased a handful of rare Founders brews a couple of years ago, and changed my avatar to the 2010 Nemesis I had last weekend. I'm almost afraid to drink the CBS, for fear that I'll adore it, and not ever have it again... but at least I have the opportunity. Cheers fellow BA's, I hold my first and last glass of CBS up to all of you.

    Drinking the rest of my Bell'sTwo-Hearted Ale and also tried Union Jack. The Firestone was good, but Bell's blows it out of the water.

    Just spent over an hour with this beauty to bring my night to an end. Words fail me after drinking this. In my top 3 favorites ever, no question (just look at that absurd pour!) Goodnight, folks!

    Have you had a chance to try it? I ordered a bag for my sister & brother in law as an anniversary gift and am hoping it lives up to the boast on the bag.

    One of the best session IPAs ever. I have been keeping myself well stocked every time I visit family in OH. Centennial/Citra/Mosaic is a winning combo.
    [​IMG]

    A regular fridge visitor lately. I love it.
    [​IMG]

    Delicious Red wine oak aged Dubbel. Been loving the easy availability of Odd Side's barrel aged offerings. Plenty more barrel beers en route soon according to the facebook page.
    [​IMG]

    Last bottle of the Citra/Galaxy Belgian IPA I made last summer. Still delicious. Very well balanced citrus/tropical hop and spicy/peppery yeast esters. High carbonation. Crisp.

    Sometimes you have to make some tough decisions
    [​IMG]

    Is my palate too blown out to enjoy something good?
    Should I save it for another day?
    How about that macroswill leftover from the gathering?


    The answer? That all day IPA. Orval, tomorrow. FBS, maybe.
