Cracked one last night. Hard to taste underneath that amount of hops but mine actually had a slight solvent thing goin' on. I'm pretty sensitive to that though. We will definitely have to see if the other five have the same problem though!

Also picked up Smitten, their new rye ale. At first sip I wasn't that impressed, but I liked it more and more as I kept drinking. For a rye beer it's a very easy drinker.

Haha, I didn't mean in one sitting...I think two in one night would be my limit.

Local place down the road just put Hopslam on tap. They had a special event for it. Gonna grab a pint in a bit.

Looks like solid 100 from all the beer rating sites.

Hopslam is probably my number one. Ill buy a case and savor it for the year. Rinse and repeat until I die or they stop making it.

I thought so myself. However, the distributor for Friar Tucks in Springfield, IL told me today that he has 20 cases on reserve for that location. It should be in this week or next. Thankfully, not too many people in Springfield know what good beer is, so I shouldn't have a problem if I get there a few days late.
