    Surprisingly tasty O-fest. Nice balance of malt and fruity esters; with a great creamy mouthfeel that I have seen lacking in other examples. The cap said "eat egg scramble with bruce campbell" which was kind of funny because I just got done watching all of Burn Notice last month.

    2 year old beer. But it's JP so it improved. REALLLY interesting beverage here. Nice gusher but not violent. Very spicy and tart, but it somehow comes together. I am going to have to think this over for a verdict. There is a lot going on in here.

    Thought about going for a T.R.E.A.T, but I didn't want to have to finish 22 ounces of beer before bed, so I went with this one. Yum.

    as seen in the photographic evidence, my buddy and i had a pretty great day watching football. in order from left to right, with the growler being a zombie dust clone homebrew from a friend.

    This is aging well. Tasting like a Double Crooked Tree with some age on it.

    Got to take home my first Mug Club mug from Founders after enjoying plenty of wonderful beers out of it in 2012. 2013 membership is renewed, and now I continue to enjoy wonderful beers from the same mug. I don't drink Centennial enough! I have since moved on to a freshly bottled FIS. YUM!

    I wish I had a mustache to comb. It's an extendable back scratcher... if I had facial hair on my back that shit would be impeccably groomed.

    Earlier is better, but I tend to draw the line at 11pm IF I have to wake up before 6:30am. Otherwise, all bets off.
