my own beer that i guess is a pale ale. i was gonna make a hobgoblin clone but when i got there i decided to drop the lme a pound to keep acohol down and forgot it was my first full boil so i didnt adjust the hops. long story short the malty chocolaty hobgoblin turned into an orange hoppy pale. either way its my best beer yet, not a bad mistake

Affligem Belgium Blonde and Ayinger Celebrator Dopplebock.

Every Friday or Sat. I've been hitting the local Wegmans that has a great
selection of brews. I've been trying different styles to kind of narrow down
what I want to brew, scince I'm new to All Grain.

The Celebrator was to dark for me. Too much roasted malt/coffee flavor.
I have a Aventus Dopplebock in the fridge that I'll try tomorrow.

The Blonde was very good. Smooth and had a rich taste to it.
I'm thinking that I'd like to brew a blonde similar to this. Rich and smooth.

I just had a Boundary Bay IPA and an Elysian IPA. Pretty tight.

I picked up a six pack of Bridgeport IPA last night, because I'd heard some good things about it. I wasn't too impressed; the quality of the hoppiness wasn't bright and crisp enough. It was a bit soft; I think it was the types of hops they use. Drinkable, but not great. I'll be back on my Thunderhead next time.

I'm about to uncap the growler of Porter I got last night at High Desert Brewing (a brew pub in Las Cruces, NM).

It's the only brew pub within about a 90 mile radius of me. I went there a few months ago and really enjoyed their Steam Beer. Last night I tried their Scotch Ale and Imperial Stout. Both were good, but the Scotch Ale tasted almost identical to the Steam Beer with a bit more alcohol content. The Imperial Stout tasted like the Scotch Ale with a touch of roasted malt. I was a little disappointed. It seems to me they use the exact same malt and hops in everything and just vary the amounts to achieve something close to the intended style.

Off I go to the fridge to see if the Porter follows suit...

EDIT:
The Porter is a pleasant surprise. The nose is very reminiscent of their other brews, but the flavor is more complex. Chocolate and coffee notes are prominent with a slight alcohol warmth. The aftertaste is a bit heavy but pleasant. Not sure...I might have to finish the whole growler tonight...I don't want it going flat or oxidizing!

Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine 2007. I had the whole six pack sitting here and read several other posts saying it was good so I decided to break one open. A nice amber with just a hint of red. Aroma is full of hops. Taste is immediately hops followed by thick malt and a little warming from the alcohol. It's great and I can't wait to taste it in a year.

I like the hops in that IPA. They arent over the top, but they are present. And if I remember correctly, they have a nice grapefruit flavor.

Im drinking the very last bottle of the first beer I ever made. It was a stout from a can. It would have been two years old in about 2 weeks, and it has actually aged decently.
