    Ok, had three of the four new Belgium folly pack beers. The fourth is fat tire, but I'm gonna skip that one, I'm plenty familiar with that one- ill drink it later. Next up is this full sail top sail bourbon barrel porter- tastes too much like whiskey for me

    No pics. Party was kind of a bust due to a few Debbie Downers. But I'm by myself now, with my wife laying here sleeping. Eating the delicious party left overs, finished a White Oak Jai, how having my at least eighth Sierra Nevada tonight. This is way better than the party.

    This is what I'm doing next year. Just the wife & I. It will be much better. Maybe Prima Pils instead.

    Not out celebrating tonight (been sick since Friday and threw out my back today). That isn't stopping me from celebrating at home though. Had a Fresh Hop Pale Ale from Great Divide to start. A Celebration from Sierra Nevada after that. Now on to a Racer 5 IPA from Bear Republic. Happy New Year!

    That's a good one... you said it's your fave...have you tried 10 yet? I like 8 but the 10 is just YUM (assuming you like the heavy maltiness, which I'm assuming you do if you are enjoying the 8)

    Pretty damn good, but not worth the ~$30 it cost. Half that, gladly, but the taste and bold rich flavors just weren't there, like I was hoping for. Currently drinking a growler of Lost Abbey - Avant Garde. Not bad, it'd be a good every day kinda beer.

    First beer of 2013. Lots of good beers + bubbly tonight but it took me nearly an hour into the new year to make it official.
    Good vibes to all and Cheers!

    Wake and Bake turned out to be my New Year beer. Goddamn that was good. Maybe a top 5 all time beer for me.

    Still working on my new camera beer photography. I need to increase aperture, and I forgot to lower the ISO, but the noise isn't too noticeable. :confused:. My computer takes forever every time I try to read the card though, because every picture is 4 MB


    This is damn good. Really surprised me, this is a fine style example. Nice and robust.

    Pretty good stuff. A little metallic, but robust and easy to drink.

    Really good brown. Got some metallic notes in this one, but a nice robust brown with a good mouthfeel.

    Insane. So hoppy that even the Belgian component is hardly noticeable. I love Citra too

    My first beer of 2013 is Pipeworks Galaxy Unicorn. Way better than my last of 2012 Peak Organic IPA.

    Heard much hype surrounding the Insanity, and I'm pretty noobish to barleywines. It's delicious.
