Ah, I loved Lunch from Maine Beer Co when I was able to get some fresh bottles.  Some of their pales are also very nice.  Ghandibot I finally tried out of the can but it was also only ok for me.  On the Wings of Armageddon was also something I last traded for about a year ago before I put a stop to that and it was very good.  It's just good to see there are so many good beers everywhere in the country now, that I would love to travel more within the US just to try more....
 I guess we'll just have to differ there since earthy and herbal is pretty much how I describe most of the older east coast and midwest IPA I've tried in the past.  West coast IPAs started using more of the fruit and citrus forward hops like Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra and that's pretty much what most brewers use in newer IPA's across the country in the recent craft beer craze.   Also, that Weyerbacher beer sounds delicious!
I traded for a couple of 4 packs of Heady Topper a few years back.  Definitely a great DIPA, but comparable to decent DIPA's distributed in CA like Sculpin or Stone's Enjoy By.  The only DIPA's not available here I'd actively seek out again are ones produced by Hill Farmstead or Fatheads (Head Hunter and Hop Juju are both amazing).  However, I've decided to stop trying to trade for every single new hot beer because it's impossible to keep up with nowadays.  And it got...
I'm still pretty active with keeping up on local craft beer releases and events here in the Bay Area.  Just not as active posting about it :/
  An empty the fridge pie for 3.14.15:  Lemon curd on lemon cheesecake in an all butter shell.  Had the pie shell dough left over in the freezer and randomly had lemons and 8 oz of cream cheese sitting around from lack of use in another project.  
Nice article and mirrors my thoughts about the Enigma as well.  When Luis demo'ed his first pair at a meet early last year, it took me only a few days of dwelling on it to contact him to have a set made.  I don't use the Enigma too often since my W3000ANV are more my everyday headphone, but they are a nice slightly bass boosted complement to them for rock music.  
I heard the ATH-W1000Z's at a BIC camera store in Tokyo while I was on vacation there early in January and thought they were pleasant enough.  It sounded similar to a cross between the W5000 and W1000X with flatter tone without the sometimes harsh bass of the W1000X, but not as good in the upper frequencies as the W5000 as it tails off a bit.  It was powered by some kind of amp that I couldn't figure out what it was and there was an option to plug your phone in as a source...
Just received my UERM's from this today.  Arrived in typical UE exterior box, a small travel storage box, headphones with shorter black cable, and a nice bonus of a 1/4" adapter attached to I believe is an impedance adapter.  I asked UE to use my impressions from last time and they came out great.  Enjoying them so far out of my iPhone.  
I use the Adagio Teas version of the same design as that Teavana one that drains from the bottom for the past 5 years.  The plastic is well stained from all the tea brewing but still works great.  
@Pudu That egg looks fantastic!  I love soft boiled eggs with that soft center.
