Not as green as former batches, but still weird looking... And still so... so... so fucking good...

I'm on a green flash brewery kick right now and had their Imperial last night.  Was really impressed!

This is pretty much perfect...

Second half of yesterday's bottle... A lot greener - a lot murkier - just as good though...

Went on a bit of a northeastern beer tour recently and finally got to try some things I'd meant to:

- Heady Topper. Absolutely lived up to its hype and is the best IPA I've ever had. I really wanted to poo poo it cause of the hype, but I couldn't, it was delicious. On the contrary, I had another Imperial something or other from The Alchemist and didn't like it much.
- Maine Beer Company. Tried most of what they had and everything they make is understated excellence.

Otherwise been drinking a lot of O'hara's Irish Stout and Firestone Union Jack IPA lately.

I still cannot enjoy sours.

Perfect. Shit beer called America mirrors where our Presidential election is going this year.

And, just like Budweiser, it was already shitty for a long long time leading up to this point.

Cue the I-hate-living-in-a-privileged-country rhetoric.

I'm having the flagship wicked weed like two months after bottling and kind of regretting I didn't drink it all the day I left Asheville. Are IPAs ever suitable to be held for longer than like two weeks?

Tiny distribution (damn hipsters) so you have to be near Stowe, Vermont to get it. But yes, highly recommended. The last of the hypebeast IPAs I need to try are all west coasters like Pliny.

Damn!  I'm going to poke around a few local beer stores to see if they know how to get some.  I've had Pliny the elder and it lives up to the hype.  Haven't had the younger, but because I'm in Texas, I probably won't ever have it unless I go to one of their keg tapping events.

 

I had the green flash imperial a few days ago and it was really tasty.  Not as good as Pliny, but it was really good for a mainstream imperial.  Track one down if you can.

It always strikes me as odd that IPAs, which I believe were solely designed to last longer than conventional ales, taste so much better the fresher they are. I guess they can go a ways without spoiling, but almost always best when consumed closest to birthdate.
