    Moving on to an Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Bauern Bock, going down easier than this 14-0 skins lead. RGIII I love ya, but you are playing for the devil. Time for some beast mode, release the skittlles!

    Once again thanks to Deltoro for this. Probably enjoyed Backwoods Bastard a bit more because it had a much better mouthfeel.

    Sorry to hear that, man. Fresh, or even reasonably so, I think it's a really good DIPA. Leans towards the tropical, mango type ales. IMHO. Good stuff.

    Wow, I'm surprised. What do yo mean by "better" mouthfeel" I feel like BA Big Sound is much creamier, where Backwoods has a bit of a prickly feel. Obviously all opinion! Cheers man! Glad you got to try this

    To me the big sound is easier drinking but a little on the light side. Its not watery, but a little to light for a scotch ale in my opinion. Of corse my view may be skewed because I had been drinking a bunch of Sheep Shagger lately and it has a thick chewy mouthfeel.

    Not sure of bottle date, picked up about a month ago, no chilli pepper, just coffee, hazelnut, chocolate, vanilla.. definitely worth the $4.50

    Kind of a random beer here. Bought for me by my girlfriend a few months ago. She said she new it's not a style I like but she remember it from her time living in Germany. Apparently it's everywhere in that country.

    Can't wait! How is this years batch? Last years batch had huge variation in quality based on bottling date, some were really harsh, others were amazing. I cant wait to get a hold of this years version of my favorite DIPA!

    I never do this, but I figure this would be a fun time to start since I am moving from CA to CT in 5 days, so I have to work through some of my beers to make room in my car for the move.

    Drinking these in order and mind you most of these are drain pours since I can't finish them all to move on"
