    Welcome back Hopslam! I'm not comparing it to last year but it does taste pretty sweet.

    Devlin- wine barrel aged saison, and Baudoinia at Clybourn. Baudoinia was the winner but they were both great.

    I second that!

    Flower Power is probably my favorite east coast IPA. Drinking one right now.

    I'm normally a stout girl, but this beer is fab. (And so is my orange/avocado/sunflower seed salad with homemade lemon/grapefruit/mustard dressing!)

    One of my favorite drummers, Derek Roddy, also tried out for Dream Theater when they were looking for a drummer after Mike left. Crazy to think that Derek, who is know for extreme death metal(but he is great in MANY styles), was asked by them to try out!

    I really like it. I am a huge fan of SoCal stuff, Stone, Alpine, GreenFlash, BP, so the bar is very high, but Flower Power is very good.

    Enjoying a bastardized version of an old favorite.

    And bottling a small batch of my 9% D-IPA blasted with a ton of Columbus Hops (along with Magnum, Citra, Cascade, & Centennial), it's a spicy one! :)

    Add me to the list, I love this stuff. I was seriously strapped for cash when this was available so I only picked up one more. Regretting it now, this beer will be great for years.
