MAJOR SCORE TONIGHT!!!!



1. Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter
2. Oskar Blues Old Chub Scottish Ale
3. Wittekerke (a very nice Belgian Witte that I enjoy immensely)...the airlock coming out of the top of the can is actually a gallon of cider, behind the beers...
4. Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA
5. Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale ( A Scottish red?) Can't wait to try this!
6. Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye (3 bottles, YES!!!!!!!)
7. Murphy's Stout (never had one of these, had to try a single)
8. Rose Belgian Wit with raspberries (made by Wittekerke and the can looked freaking hawt!) Not expecting much but look at those cans!!!
9. Stone Ruination (2 bottles!!!!)
10. Victory Hop Wallop
11. Clipper City Loose Cannon (proprietor of the store said it was a great IPA, never even heard of the brewery....)
12. Stone Smoked Porter (now that I have my own smoked porter on tap, need to do some quality comparison research)

I am so psyched!!!! (too bad I work all weekend though, Sunday is when I get to start sampling )

You will like Red Rocket and if you also like Racer 5, you need to make a field trip to taste Racer X.

i thought the racer 5 was a good IPA too. the murphy's stout is good, nothing fancy to me. of course the hop rod whips booty, heard of clipper city but never seen/had it. still waiting to try my Ruination IPA for a good night.....

looks like a good score their dude!

I did some sampling myself this weekend. There's a cafe in my small town that apparently has a very good variety of beers. I haven't been there in years becuase it's a little to trendy for my tastes - 90% of the menu is salads and bagels. But my wife likes it so we went on Friday night. Anyway, here's what I tried:

Hop Devil: I've seen a couple of you guys talking about this one before so I gave it a shot. Pretty darn good - I'd give it top five status on my IPA ranking!

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout: From North Coast Brewing. I've had their Red Seal Ale before and liked it a lot. I've been thinking about brewing an Imperial Stout for while and this beer locked it for me. Oh man it was good! Every aspect of this beer was enjoyable.

Chimay: Another one I've seen you guys talking about before. Maybe it was due to the buzz from the first two beers (which were pretty high abv), but this was one of the best beers I've tried in a long long time. Oh my god, this beer was good. Well worth the $5 price tag. If it wasn't so expensive I could've drank this all night. SO FRIGGIN' GOOD! I toured New Belgium in Ft. Collins last summer and their Belgian tripel was a horrible representation of the style compared to this Chimay. I can't get over it. I'm beside myself. Must find recipe.

DFH Indian Brown Ale: Wow, another great beer. I thought that after the Chimay being so good this might be a let down but it was also awesome. Not mind-boggling-good like the Chimay or the Imperial Stout, but very very good.

I was four-for-four on beer sampling! A grand slam! I can't believe my luck. I think in the future I will have to tolerate the occasional salad & bagel for dinner just so I can drink some more good beers.

AHU

Like DeRoux stated it's nothing too special - probaby the second biggest selling stout in the UK after Guiness. The other stuff looks exotic to me though - I'm used to UK and other European bottled beer labels! Let us know your taste testings!
(and you did have me worried there briefly but i'm glad you've stopped using those two beer cans glued together as a fermenter! )

I did a clone of that one last year and really liked it. The only problem was it didn't take much to kick my ass! Very strange to get hit by hops from a brown ale.

from that statement i assume you've never had THE ARROGNAT BASTARD ALE from Stone? OH-MAMA!!!! that, like Hop Rod Rye, is a beer-life changing experience......

Crap, somehow I missed the entire word 'never'. Reminds me of when I learned flammable and inflammable mean the same thing. We just started getting the good stuff over here, so I'm keeping my hopes up...we are getting DFH now!
