    Started with Pliny the Elder, which I'm really lovin. Drinking Jai Alai White Oak now. Not sure yet if the Pliny ruined it for me. I'll try again reversing the order.

    Georgey L aleady issued a cease and desist order back in '09. Hence the groucho marx label which was introduced in 2010 and somehow survives. Lucas Arts: 0, NEBCO: 1

    Really good stuff! Especially for being old as sin(may '12 bottling). Really nice citrus/earthy pine hops with good cracker malt balance and light fruity yeast esters
    [​IMG]

    This is pretty darn good stuff. Lightly tart with lots of festive pie flavors and spices. Feels festive, good flavors with good balance. Not overly spiced at all.

    Cheers, something hoppy next.

    I'm pretty sure Ive only posted in one of these one other time before tonight, but since I picked up 2 cases of nugget nectar and a case of 2 hearted (for shits and giggles) this weekend, I have a large surplus that needs go "go away" before it goes bad so I'll be frequenting these threads much more.

    So I just had my first one the other day as well... did any of you guys think it tasted like a slightly less powerful Pliny the Elder? I feel like it drew a ton of similarities, and it's nice because I can actually get it in Michigan :) Very good stuff.

    Holy crap. That's cheap as hell. Wish I had a good beer that was that inexpensive around here.

    I love that beer. It's like an American barleywine and a bottle of orange cream soda had a love child and I'm the foster parent.

    Going to make a bold statement, this might be the best beer to come out of the great state of NJ. Had a growler of it last week, and picked up a 6 pack for $11, can't beat that.

    The last of my '09-12 vertical. Actually going to email them right now. This cannot be a barleywine. It is a slightly dank and unimpressive IPA. This is coming from a a huge BBC fan, but I am rather confused about this years release. 2009 floored me. This can never reach that level of perfection in 3-4 years.
