Had a BackPocket Golden Nickel and Jacknife on tap,now having my Cali Un- common. I put it in front of a pizza flyer thought they were both pretty Super bowl friendly! Crappy pic though. Its actually a nicer golden color,darker than a light lager with a unique hop presence from sapphire hops,a bit soapy tasting and really brings out this hop i used a Non certified organic cascades hop which im deciding im not too interested in getting again although i think it would blend good with a few other hops. I was thinking i was having issues with this fermentation when bottleing it but has kept up pretty well so i dont know if my s-23 was giving this character or my hops, i get a slight build up of foam in the bottle but no gushers, they probably would benefit from cold conditiong if i had another spare fridge to always do this. With limited space its hard to do this with a good pipeline and great commercial craft beer.

Cracked open a bomber of my RIS. Just hit its 6 month birthday a few days ago. Really tasty. But I'll be pretty good and trashed when I'm done. Heh.

My American amber-some time ago,its almost like a session AB but 6% and still dry and sessionable. It had a complex grain bill of 12 grains for a partial mash and Chinook and Centeniall.Used notty at a low temp.I used around 14 oz for a 1/3 batch comparable of a 5 gallon batch of crystal malts which would be short of 3# crystal type malts for a 5 gallon batch and i had a finish of 1.01 with a 1.06 og, im going to assume it was around 150 mash with a series of lighter beers i did accidentally with a thermometer off mistakabley of about 8-10 deg. Its got a nice malty dryness that you wouldnt miss with a fuller body and by no means is it cloyingly sweet. It has a mild sweet character but a dry roasty light/dark carmel roastyness, clean malty dry and sessionable for a 6.5%er. Who said all those carmel malts give body?(B.S)!And im pretty shure even a non-craft beer drinker would enjoy it.No way does it seem like 6.5% either. Very clean dry,light crisp beer, i guess i could say its almost a lager,its that refined but aged/cellered too.

Pyramid's discord dark IPA. Pretty good, but a little too resin-y for me.very good for the price, though, at $3 for a 22.

Southern Tier 2x Stout

I'm not a huge stout guy, but it's pretty good.
