    First time for this one for me.
    There is definitely a different angle to sours out West. A sweet and sour treat from Derek. Cheers!

    Another great brew from Derek. Been really picking up what Yellow Dog has been putting down. In this case I'm experiencing the difference between wet hop and fresh hop and I'm in the fresh hop camp. This dog has had its day.

    The first time I had the Saison Tropicale it was pretty fine. Last time it had a hard hit of alcohol. I had been telling people how I like it but it's hotter than I remember. Brett helps!

    Just taking a friendly jab. I can imagine how that brew could miss the point. After all its just experimental. Good rare tick either way.
    Cheers!

    This is one I've had before but it was so good I thought I'd try it again. Bottled 4 days ago.

    Hello Canadians BAs, I don't want to disrupt your thread too much but I was wondering if ''La vache folle Amarillo DIPA'' was worth buying? I found it here where I live, and I'm tempted.

    (I didn't want to start a thread in your own forum for such a trivial question), any insight on this beer is welcome.

    If it's relatively fresh, it should be worthwhile. It's in our top 100 here, but I haven't tried it yet!

    Is that the only Charlevoix/Vache Folle beer that you found?

    All of those beers are pretty decent, but there's no way that they're fresh. Those are all rotating and that one hasn't come out in a long time to the best of my knowledge.

    @TheDoctor, yes the only one. I think I'll buy it despite the price. I've read enough BA reviews and overall rating that convinced me to purchase it.

    Another Grimm. Nice beers, but not in the top tier as far as all these east coast ipa's go

    I wouldn't buy this beer if I was you. Fresh it's allright but it has not been released since last year. I remember drinking it last December so you shouldn't put money at all on this beer. At least wait until it's fresh.

    This one was a bit mellow, but very true to the label. Another really nice HHOE. Thanks to @dabeerbuddha !

    It is a bit sweet but that's par for the style. Chocolate is sweet but there is bitterness that helps balance it. I find it no sweeter than DDC Aphro. I have bottles and cans of EMJ and I prefer the bottles. Both are good though. Temperature was important too.

    From Vox Populi... Great hopping, but the bitterness is nowhere near 100 IBU, and I think that's a good thing. Really well balanced, flavourful, easy drinker.
