    Guess I'll start today's thread off, it is my day off, after all!
    I have no idea what the bottle date of this Hoptimus Prime is, but so far I'm not that impressed..
    9% ABV DIPA from New York (used to be PA?) Either way, 6 bucks for a 22oz

    Having an Odin's Tipple while forging (blacksmithing) bottle openers. When I do this I like doing it with a few Gonzo Imperial Porters, gotta find a sub in the fridge, I think an Espresso Oak Aged Yeti will fill the bill.

    Decided to try out a new deli that just opened across the street from where I work. Was going to just get some carry out, but when I walked in I saw they had a bar and a pretty decent beer list. It wasn't anything extraordinary, but for a local deli I was pleasantly surprised. 3 out of 5 tap lines were craft beers (all Bell's) and they had ~10 craft bottles as well.

    Went with some corned beef and an Edmund Fitzgerald. Both were pretty tasty.

    The Dagger Stout was pretty solid.

    But the undisputed champion of the night was Ex-Hop 06; hands down one of the best DIPA's I have ever had.
    Loved the color, and the nose was incredible. Please bottle.

    Had Lagunitas Sucks and Great Lakes Blackout Stout on tap at Fuel and Fuddle in Pittsburgh today. Decent break from doing engineering homework. No pictures this time because I'm lazy. Cheers!

    I just got back from STL with my first decent sized haul. I haven't been able to make up my mind what to try first. While waiting for indecision to drift off, I'll have this stand by. Always nice to find this in your fridge!
