    Tastng my way through a Great Divide Sampler 12-pack.
    So far had the Claymore Scotch Ale and Rumble. Both Excellent.
    Never had Great Divide until I got this 12 pack for Christmas. Enjoying it.

    Dozed off last night, so my Christmas beer was slightly postponed...

    1984 De Dolle Stille Nacht. Still slightly carbonated, and barely oxidized! Notes in the cellar thread once I finish it.

    Now enjoying this. Trying to drink up all my IPAs to make room for a couple cases of Lagunitas Sucks once it gets out here!

    So I've been in search of a reasonability priced AIPA or DIPA, of course Torpedo was already on my list, but I wanted more, much MORE!!! So tonight, I had yet another of the 6-pack of Finestkind which I had previously tried in this effort.
    [​IMG]
    And then new for the evening:
    [​IMG]
    Pretty solid, clean, crisp, VERY approachable as DIPAs go and in fact I'd said similar feedback of Finestkind at least for AIPAs. However, also like Finestkind, this is not one that's going yo blow your mind, unless price is in the conversation as it does offer very good value.

    Still my by far favorite in this quest is Hop Ottin' IPA, just a home run and least Hop Stoopid.

    I was going to recommend Hop Whore is the better option, with the exception being that it's now been on the shelves for some time. Thinking of that when it was fresh, pretty solid, although I'd say their porters are more game changes, as they're GREAT!

    Weihenstephaner hefeweizen. All these bubbles shooting up to the top of this weizen glass look so awesome. Oh and the beer tastes pretty awesome too.
