Dogfish theobroma ... Pricey but wow did I love this one. Subtle flavors and great balance.

Cricket Hill Colonel Blides Cask Ale. Blindly put this in a six-mixer with low-expectations. Turns out its the best one I had tonight. Guess Ill check out a few of their others. An RJ Rockers Pale Ale almost took its place but I had that before so I thought Id try Cricket,could have swore I had One or two and hated them before. OH yeah I did the hopnotic,it was not good, worth a second whirl though I guess.
A lot of the sixer mixers Ive been getting have been last picks and usually are sampler/dumpers. Not this.

Yeah, Heady Topper is a damn fine beer. I sure wish there was a way to get it regularly around here...as it stands I have to find people willing to trade me for it.

I spoke with a CT beer wholesaler tonight and asked him about the HT situation. Unfortunately it's not even getting out of VT anytime soon, let alone across the country. On the bright side, one day soon I am going to take a day trip up to VT for the sole purpose of stocking up on HT, so I'll have some to trade.

Thanks to NordeastBrewer77, a wet-hopped IPA from Surly.

Quite aromatic with resiny/piney hops and some dank for good measure. Balance is decidedly bitter with a bit of a rough edge to it, and the bitterness lingers a very long time. There's a decent level of caramel malt aroma and flavor; just smelling it I would think that the malt balance would have been quite sweet, but in fact it's very dry.

I drank the saison. I should probably stop. I don't think I can do any more school work tonight. I should sleep.

Started the night with my CA Common, then had one of my Sweet Stouts, and now my Punkin Ale. I love having options when I open the beer fridge.

Tonight has been, Thrisy Dog's Pumpkin ale (just ok) followed by Weyerbacher Imperial Pumkin Ale (a little better) then Unibroue La Fin Du Monde (pretty damn good)

I find I really enjoy alot of Unibroue's beers, La Fin Du Monde, Blance De Chambly, Maudite, Trois Pistoles, ect. Pretty damn good beers.

Heavy Handed IPA by Two Brothers Brewery in Illinois. Wet-hopped harvest series. I guess they make 5 individual batches each with different wet hops. They list the lot numbers on the website to let you know which hops are in it. Not sure what I got, because it was on tap in the hotel bar. Pretty sure it's willamette.
