    Really? Peaches in an IPA? Sounds intriguing.

    Odell did a Peach IPA that they offered at their taproom that was quite tasty. After trying Jai Alai the other day for my first time, I would have to imagine that Cigar City Peach IPA is delicious.

    I am a big fan of rum so I thought it seemed like a great idea. I'm only a few sips into it but I think I like it. I'm not good at reviewing yet but I think it's a shade watery. The rum flavor is there with what seems like a little vanilla maybe. It's definitely worth a try. Good for sipping.

    It's delicious. Hunks of Indian masala cheese in a red curry over rice, the puti is basically a wheat naan baked in tandoor.

    I can't like this because I'm a Hornets fan, but this is a great beer. :)

    Black Butte was my favorite of the regular lineup. Try it if you haven't. Obsidian is apparently really good but I haven't tried it.

    I didnt think there were any Hornets fans left!

    The beer is very good, as usual. My Mother stopped by to visit my daughter and brought me a 6er of Torpedo and 6er of Centennial IPA. Need to have her over more often.

    This is a wonderful beer, I have to say. Extra in a recent trade, and a wonderfully crafted treat!

    I had 2 mugs of Bud on tap at a local watering hole with a co-worker after work.

    Ate some delicious lasagna made by my wife and now it's time for a good beer...

    I rather liked the rum cask ale which is suprising because I very much dislike the original.

    Berkshire Steel Rail Pale Ale. Refreshing. No picture of it though. I feel so inadequate.

    The base beer is a Scotch Ale? Im not huge into that style, how's the rum work with that, or is it rum dominant?
