Yeah, the bottle has something written about what to expect after some storage.  Maybe I'm just not that picky, I enjoyed it.


Tonight I'm having Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale.  Watery, roasty caramels and malt, earthy and a bit of alcohol both in smell and taste, to me.  And that alcohol is well hidden because it's a good one at 8.5%!  I've always enjoyed these.

Brewed my first beer today, all grain. Brewed a pale ale. Will see how it is in 4 weeks.

Hop Valley Brewing Alpha Centauri Binary Double IPA


So delicious & 8.7% ABV

post #1654 of 2001

Finally!  I located one of these and cracked it open just now.  Not bad, not bad at all, but there's an overwhelming alcohol flavor.  Fairly thin mouth feel also.  Kinda weird.  My memory is a tad foggy, but I'm thinking I like the two other Deliriums more than this one.  Either way, here's to hoping my dreams are whacked out tonight.

I got my first installment of the beer of the month club in 2 days ago (3 each of four different beers).

T he first one I tried was Diamond Bear IPA and I loved it. Need to find some of this locally as they want $34 to ship me a 12 pack.

I've had two off that list...


And I'm having this right this very second!

Red Hook - Blueline Series: Extra Special Birthday
- Very light, clear/clean grains/malts aromatics .. hint of spices/citrus
- Dark & clear amber color .. light CO2 bubbles, thins out to a creamy head
- Complex tastes of the dark malts, bread like grains, spices & a slight Belgium ale banana flavor .. not much hops
- This is abit of an odd one for me .. it's different, hard to place .. 6.5/10

No, but I plan on hitting several SF Beer Week events from February 10-18.

Terrapin Wake and Bake is the roastiest stout I've ever had. I'm not talking roasted malts, this thing tastes and smells of fresh roasted coffee beans. Depending on your tastes you're going to love or hate this, I'm definitely saving my other 3 for the morning of each festival day.

I would seriously consider the NYC festival if I was able to drink more than one beer. It looks like a seriously good time. Unfortunately for me, the timing just isn't right.

ACME California IPA

6.50% ABV 
A very balanced, drinkable IPA and for that reason nothing really stood out.
I'd give it a respectable B+
This week I've been playing around with my new camera, so here's something a little different.

Pretty cool idea, I like that.

post #1665 of 2001

Yeah, that was neat.
