Got some awesome news from work this week so I decided to celebrate with this beer. Also cutting some dip tubes so I can convert some extra corny kegs to fermenters. Hopeful to brew a batch of beer on Sunday.
Thanks @TheDudeLebowski for this delicious bottle!!
Just picked this up today as I haven't seen it in a while down here in NC. Hopslam released down in NC as well today. IMO, I really like this Mars imperial IPA better than the imperial two hearted ale for sure. At 10% ABV, Mars has a better supportive malt character and appropriate amount of hops that hide the booze MUCH better than double two hearted and even Hopslam IMHO. Its just more balanced better than the other two. MARS is a great, non NEIPA, Imperial IPA. really like this. It also ages exceptionally well as I just had a 2018? or 2019? MARS about 3 weeks ago that was great as well.
"After the first glass of absinthe you see things as you wish they were. After the second you see them as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world."
If you ever find one of these, I think you might like it. Not an IPA, but a good cream ale. A coworker gave me one a long time ago and I didn’t think I’d like it, but it was great. It’s seasonal and I think they distribute them in the summer.
