    Had FFF zombie dust on draft last week, it was delicious and compared to other beers I was drinking, it was by far the best!

    Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break has been a nice new addition to my area. Jolly Pumpkin Maracaibo Especial, GI Madame Rose, Two Brothers Revelry, and Victory Oak Horizontal have all been outstanding!

    Had a growler of Westbrook's Shane's Big DIPA two weeks ago while at the beach. Totally blew me away. Better than Sucks and Hopslam. IMO of course.:)

    I'm in Thailand out in the sticks, we have nothing but mass produced lager. We have a few things in Bangkok and I was pleased to find a shop selling Karmellite Tripel, that was just incredible after no good beer for 4 months.

    Then I guess I am wrong.

    I thought it was one of the beers that got dropped to allow them to make Nomad and Colette available year long and introduce Orabelle and Heyday....but if you are seeing it around, I would imagine I was wrong.

    As cliche as it is mine is KBS. I love coffee and bourbon and this beer nails it.

    Looking over the beers I rated, it was Hunahpu by a lot.

    Other new to me beers worth mentioning have been WnB, Moat Water and Supplication.
