Started drinking a 1.5 year old Hoptober. Didn't realize it was so old till the first sip.

Then I realized that Hoptober was replaced this year by Red Hoptober and decided to look at the date on the bottle.

There was virtually ZERO hop character and an overly oxidized malt character that forced me to toss it.

For some reason these had been sitting in my company's fridge for the last few weeks. They weren't there before this, so someone must have had them lying around for a long while and decided to get rid of them (Or just play a prank on someone).

I didn't think it should have been that bad unless whoever owned it originally had it outside in 100 degree weather (Directly in sunlight).

Hmm... Got me beat. I only had to deal with assaulting two midgets who were trying to hump on my front yard.

So, since I can't drink beer until the weekend because of the diet but I want to continue participating in this thread until then, I thought I'd post a little beer porn of what I have to look forward to this weekend. This isn't including the Kiwi Pale Ale (Kiwi because of the hops, not because of kiwi fruit) that I just bottled a couple weeks ago, of which I have 48 bottles. I'll go get you some Kleenex.

My kidney just had a mini-stroke! Looks like you're in for one hell of a great Saturday!

He|| yeah! I'm not even going to try to drink it all, though. By the time I'm schwasted I hope I have the good sense to shift to something more pedestrian so I don't drink the amazing beer in a state where I won't remember it.
