Default What are you drinking now?

..Stone Ruination. Good stuff.

Before that I had the last one of the 3 bottles of Chimay I got in that sampler pack. The Blue one. Wow. Smooth for all that alcohol. I'll bet that one would have been so much better aged. I liked it, btu the white was BY FAR my favorite of the 3. No contest. Ever since I had that white one, I've been trying to find a recipe similar to it so I can brew it this summer. That was outstanding.

Is the white one the Trippel? I can never remember I like the Trippel the best.

I'm drinking a glass of my Porter I call Porterhouse 2. Can't be much of it left...

Breckenridge American Hefe Proper. Right before that Pyramid's Hefe Weizen. IMHO the Breck wins. (altho, now that I think about it it probably wasn't a fair comparison) Regardless, I'm 2 for 2 with Breckenridge. (Did you get to try that Vanilla Porter yet Dude?)

Thanks for the heads up on the Chimay... I may go it in reverse order and save the White for last!

my honey ale and I have discovered that I have achieved a very light beer. Not a whole lot of hop character or malt profile. My wife likes it a lot so it is a success. I carbonated it much higher than all my other brews and it is kinda cool watching the bubbles rise.
OK it is a success but something I won't be drinking on a regular basis. I made my wife happy and that was it's intended purpose anyway.
I will have to try an ice cold one after mowing the lawn however.
Only problem I have now is that the honey ale is the only home brew I've got that is drinkable.

EDIT: I better throw that IHA into the fridge and carbonate it soon!

Moylan's Hopsickle. I need to do a side-by-side of this one and Moylan's Double IPA. They are both of Imperial strength, and both highly hopped. I think the Hopsickle is a little more malty sweet, while the IIPA is in your face hops. If I tasted it by itself, I would say it's an IIPA, but on the label it only says " Imperial Ale." Maybe it's in a grey area between Imperial Pale Ale and Imperial IPA? Who cares! It tastes good!

Avery New World Porter. trying to broaden my horizons a bit so I took a chance on Avery since I've heard good things about them. A nice toasted flavor to it, not too bad for a porter! After reading the label I found out it's dry hopped. Anyone know what kind of hops they use?

Now I'm washing it down with a SN Bigfoot Ale. Mmmmm....lightheaded.

Boulevard wheat. It's a little on the sour side. Nothing to write home about, but not too shabby.

SWMBO picked up ANOTHER mixed six pack from the mega-booze store, so I've got about 13 commercial brew varieties and 9 different homebrews to choose from.

I keep going to the fridge, but I can't decide what to drink.
