Bear Republic Hop Rod IPA. Very solid beer my second in their line up. The first I had was their Racer 5 and I had a bad bottle. This makes up for it!

Sam Adam's Hallertau Imperial Pilsner. Sorry no photo yet.

Notes:
Dense creamy head dissipates quickly.
Wonderful pale golden color. Slightly hazy/cloudy.
No lacing as I drink it.
Very good balance of hop flavor and malty sweetness. Bitterness is strong, but not obscene. It grows more pronounced as I'm drinking the glass.
Overall, I don't get a "Pilsner" feeling from this beer, more of a very pale Double IPA. Of course my Pilsner experience is limited to Stella and Pilzn Urquell.
Very good beer! :

DFH 120. Cloudier and more carbonated than the last one I had, but still just as ridiculously good.
Funny thing is, I HATE 90min.

Right now I'm drinking my IPA and the hydrometer sample of my Pale Ale as I'm kegging it. Up next is kegging the barleywine.

Southern Star Pine Belt Pale
Not sure how I feel about it yet, the malt is fine, its the choice of hops I'm not sure of yet.

Granville Island Porter, yum yum... It's on my favourite end of the Porter scale, the robust one.

Rode the motorcycle down to the valley at lunch today to hit Trader Joes.

Picked up a 6 each of their Vienna Lager, Hofbrau Bock (7%) and their Kinnebunkport IPA.

I've rotated through each 6'r twice now so feeling pretty fine.

Agreed. It's a bizarre beer.

I'm drinking Spaten Premium from a corny. It lost a bit of foam in the transfer from the minikeg. Gotta turn up the gas.
