This is my first year as a BA and so many beers have come and gone from my fridge. The story for me has been an exploration of hops, what I like, what I can expect from different varieties, and even how varying malts play with them. I've discovered I'm a C-hops kinda guy at the moment, particularly Centennial. That said, my first review was Two Hearted, the beer that made me an advocate and set me out to find all things hoppy. The highlights from year one: Two Hearted Big Eye Modus Hoperandi Ethos Lagunitas IPA, New Dogtown, and Little Sumpin' Sumpin' , but mostly SUCKS!!! Founders is a great brewery (Centennial in cans will kick ass) Tallgrass has dominated my fridge for a month I love IPAs that come in cans (less to worry about, a 3 month old Big Eye in a can will dominate one from the bottle at one month, I know first hand) FBS changed the way I look at beer tonight, I can't wait to share a 4 pack when my dad comes next week,he's been waiting for me to enjoy "a nice porter or stout" What a year for me and my new-found love of beer. Thanks to all of you for the insights, humor, brutal honesty, and mostly passion for beer! Cheers!
