I'm doing a little experiment. I tried a SNCA tonight and noticed it was really harsh. When I first got it I noticed that too, but ones I had after that were less harsh. Well, I cracked another one open from the second case I bought, and it was much less harsh. Very interesting!
Are these all the same vintage? I've got some 2001 & 2004 vintage and I'll tell you, the hops really take a back seat as the beer ages.

Same vintage. After my experiment I opened some threads on brewboard and I guess some of the first batches were harsher than later ones. Hmmmm.

Default Fat Tire

I have heard a lot about Fat Tire from New Belgium, both good and bad. I'd like to find out for myself, but unfortunately I'm on the East Coast. Anyone help me out? More than willing to swap east coast brews for it.

I'm drinking Great Lakes Brewery's Elliot Ness- an amber lager. Not so good, really. I like the Burning River, but this tastes like a sour-ish lager with no real finish. Not terrible, just not very good.

Earlier, though, I had good reviews (from my husband) of my one week old Walker's IPA and the Sawtooth Clone. The Walker's IPA is going to be my best beer ever- it's got everything going for it. This one is a great one, Walker, thanks! Only 10 days or so in the bottle- and I know it's going to go too quick. I'll put aside a six pack for the 07 beer swap.

The Sawtooth clone is an ESB with a malty flavor to it. Am I too much of a beer snob now, when I think my own homebrews are better than the commercials that we buy?

Hop Ottin' IPA - Anderson Valley Brewing Company, Boonville CA. I've always loved this beer but for some reason or another, haven't bought it in a while. Picked up a 6 pack tonight. Medium amber color, huge floral/citrus hop nose, plenty of malt up front giving way to a intense citrusy hop finish. Great beer! "Hop Ottin' bites like a can-kicky bluetail"

Saison Six. I brewed this for the pemiere of 24 Season Six. This stuff is great IMHO. Straw colored, spicy floral aroma, subtle orange and spice with a very slight hop bitterness in the finish. I am very happy with this beer.

Black Marlin Porter.

Holy fright is this stuff good. Quite possibly the BEST porter I've ever had.

A guy on the Greenboard sent it to me, I might have to ask him for more.

Sampling (a week early) my IPA. Carbonation is light, of course, but I like this a lot. TON of hop flavor. Tons and tons of citrusy grapefruit goodness.
