Brown Shugga from Lagunitas.
This is a deceptively strong beer, but once it warms up, it is sweet, with a hot alcohol bite.

Sound's pretty interesting, where's it from?

Peachy, and tasty.

You know...Widmer has had some pretty good beers in their Rotator series. It's been a while now since I've had one, but I've been pretty impressed with the ones I've had previously...I think they do 4 a year? Anyway, it's nice to see them brewing more experimental stuff.

Drinking some Knob Creek tonight, just got done brewing a Dogfish Indian Brown ale clone! Just waiting for the magic to happen.

Iowa-y, huh? I'll have to keep an eye out for it next time I'm down that way. And yeah, the Rotator's have been good. I really liked the Nelson, this Falconer's is going down really well. I've been impressed with some of Widmer's non regulars. The Galaxy Barleywine is really good, I love Barrel Aged Brrrbon, even the regular Brrr is really good.

I think it might be more than four, but I've never bothered to make a study of it. There are currently five IPAs in the series, thought: Falconer's, O'Ryely, Shaddock, Spiced, X-114. X-114 and Shaddock seem to be available in my area, at least right now.

I was up in Portland last night and filled The Growler at Deschutes. Fresh Hopped Porter, which is being imbibed with no small amount of haste and glee!

And on Thursday, The Abyss makes a return.

That means The Abyss, Black Butte XXIV, and The Dissident will all be available, all at once. It's like... beervana. Oh wait, that's Oregon in general

A pint of my wheat IPA. Carbonation has finally balanced out. On this batch, I threw an extra 2oz each of Citra and Nelson Sauvin into the keg (after dry hopping) and it has really boosted the aromatics and hop flavor. Very satisfying to drink.

I will say that I think the bitterness is a bit high on this one, too, but it is not nearly as harsh and lingering as in the wrangler. Maybe they use something with a high cohumulone.

Started with Full Sail's Big Daddy J's Malt Liquor, and now on to the Apfelwein. I could be in trouble tomorrow.

Batch differentiation is a fun thing to watch in smaller breweries.
Batch 400 was very confusing, there was no harsh chocolate, or big roastiness in the flavor, but only in the aroma, it drank like a smooth pilsner, with a wheat beer creaminess. This one in batch 411 has a big bitter chocolate flavor, similar to the aroma, and very much different than before.
