Drinking my Founder's Red Rye PA clone, after brewing since xmas of 2010, and then switching to AG this Fall, this is my second AG and best beer yet....I'm sad the keg is almost kicked though

Really like it! I've had a few now and I keep grabbing every bottle I see, I wish I could find more than singles. I bet it's amazing on cask!! Do Nuke a favor and turn him on to some Jester King and Southern Star offerings.

This is another gem of an IIPA. Super good, with I'd gotten more than two.

I am really impressed Nord with how much work you do each night. I finally get to go home tmrw. After crazy training today I could use a beer. Guess it has to wait until tomorrow. Cheers all!!

Cracked this one open a minute ago and man is it good. It's like strong ale meets pale ale. It's not super hoppy, but the dry hops that the label mentions are definitely present. If it weren't so malty one could even call it a CDA, but as it is it's got way too much malt character to go there. It's a great beer, though, and has aged well.

My smoked baltic porter w/ sweet potatoes. Clocked in at 7.5% ABV pretty tasty after a month in the bottles. Should be delicious in a few more weeks.

My first bottle of Tank 7 was really peppery too, but I find that with Boulevard's Belgian style beers, age definately helps. The Quad, and the Tank 7 I had earlier had been aging in my beer storage for several months, and the aging really helped with the roughness. I'll see if I can find Harvest Dance, but I'm not holding out any hope. Good beer is hit or miss here in Oklahoma.
