APA: Possibly the best dry hopped, aromatic, hop flavored, APA I've ever had.
KOLSCH: I nearly crapped my pants. This Kolsch re-opened my eyes to subtly flavored blondes and pale brews. DELICIOUS doesn't begin to describe it.
Their APA is definitely my favorite. That beer opened my eyes to a brave new world of hoppy goodness, and is definitely the best I have had. If anyone can point me to a "better" dry hopped apa/ipa let me know, I will give it a shot.
I know I have had the kolsch, but don't remember anything all that remarkable, but I am not generally a huge fan of lighter bodied brews like that anyway. Newcastle is about the most "subtle" beer I really like.
The coffee stout is pretty damn good as well. Not a lawn mower beer by any means, but it definitely has its place.
And while #15 doesn't do it much for me that I have been bitten by the hop bug, a few years back I drank untold gallons of that stuff. When I had my first, it was the most amazing thing I had ever encountered. And that was in the bottle. When I had in on draft in the bottleworks, my socks we found 3 counties over they were knocked off so hard.
