    Mmm. Fresh! Floaties! They're tasty! This reminds me of Troegs Perpetual, but a bit bolder. There's almost a spicy, peppery taste here, under the citrus. Very good stuff. Can't wait to try the White Oak Jai.

    Wasn't expecting to find anything good (beerwise) during a liquor run in the small town my parents live in. Small steps to craft beer Loganville. Well played.

    Starting off the evening with Founders Bolt Cutter. Loving this brew. It's a strong one, so not sure how many to follow, but I've got quite a line up waiting. Probably hit some Celebration and/or Brown Shugga.

    Prost!

    Only my first time having it, but I think it would pair well with anything from turkey to cranberry sauce to pie for dessert.

    Also, just noticed that the Tocobaga, my first beer from a trade, was my 100th tick (Not including macro, which I don't count).

    Thanks again Kirbmeist, you're awesome.

    I will be showing this to my wife as whenever we go out to a BYOB place I use this move and she thinks I'm a maniac (plus we have 3 kids under 4, so I have 3 beer holders).

    White Oak Aged Jai Alai :
    [​IMG]


    Oh...oh fuck. Fucking shit, man.
    The smell was hops, mango, coconut. This both got me excited and worried. Because I'm not a big fan of mango or coconut.

    I hate coffee though, and FBS is in my top 5. This is a similar situation.

    This might be the best thing that I ever put down my face. The smell matches the taste, but in a way I can't even comprehend correctly. I just....fuck.

    I'm gonna have to re-rate all my hads. There's no way I can have a bunch of 5's-4's after having this. This changes everything.

    Sorry for delay in response! I opened the bottle and smelled a nice sweet cherry and when I poured it into a glass my friend and I smelled apples. This was elegant to say the least and as it warmed man did we ever enjoy it!

    2 week old Double Jack. When this beer is under 3 weeks old it is so different than 45 days plus. So much hops, it is nearly perfect!
