    Evolution Nouveau Rouge, they spend two years aging this sour and it was worth, very well balanced, really hope I am able to pick up a second bottle, it is really limited...

    New to me... Cantillon Iris, HF S&S #1, Supplication, Hunahpu's, and Blind Pig.

    New to 2013, CW 15 and Alchemy Hour. Although, just had a bottle of Alchemy Hour last night that was disgusting. Must've screwed something up there, because it was undrinkable. Total drainpour.

    Excluding Hill Farmstead and Lawson's, I vote for Citra Ninja by Pipeworks.

    Arctic Devil has probably been my standout thus far.

    Biggest surprise was Hardywood GBS. That one caught me off guard.

    The beer formerly known as Alchemy Hour is delish!

    I have! I'm a fan of almost all of their stuff, especially all the stouts they put out in the winter. Seriously try Smitten if you haven't, especially if you like rye.

    Society and Solitude from Hill Farmstead was insane. Drank a growler of it, alone, in an embarrassingly short amount of time.

    Sucaba easily takes this for me so far this year. Looking forward to the new batch of Parabola.

    For me, it is a toss up between Cuvee Des Jacobins (Draft), Green Flash Palate Wrecker (Draft), and Crooked Stave Oculus.
