San Diego County Session Ale - It's just that, a super hoppy 4.2% pale ale dubbed "West Coast Bitter". Has anybody else had this yet? I can't believe how much hop flavor they cram into such a low ABV brew. Def. Diggin it! I'd love to find out the recipe, seems like a good one to play around with!

Just picked up a couple bottles of 10.10.10 VE and 3 bottles of the new SN homegrown Estate ales. Good beer day!

I had a chance to try it when I went to a local beer store and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't in to paying the three dollars that they were asking per bottle though.

I believe the quote I left on Stone's Facebook was something along the line of:

"Kelsey needs to be seen by a doctor for acute hop addiction."

Stuff is astronomical.

I tried it last week, I actually wasn't too big on it myself.

Cheers to Sierra on another beer well done! Perfectly balanced, hoppy, fresh, and tasty, I dig it! There's something about the fresh/wet hop flavor I can't get enough of!

Can someone confirm this is Kelsey? I would like to attempt a homebrew of the Stone Collaboration Ale (ridiculously awesome, by the way), but this is the only post I can find from this poster, and there is no public profile information.

He seems to claim to be Kelsey from the tone of the post.
