Here's a bunch from the past couple weeks:
Finally got to try this one thanks to a work friend. Close to a month old so I can't say it definitively but I don't think the hype is warranted with this one. On par with Trillium or Tree House IPA's I'd say.
Decent wild from Trillium but not my favorite. Needed a little more oomph to it. Not sure exactly what.
First time trying this - a dry-hopped variant of Julius. I liked it better than Julius.
One from @ocooney
- first time having a Half Acre beer and I was pretty impressed. Very decent.
This is magic. Loved it.
Thanks to @concealed
for the tip on where to grab this one. First time having it and it blew me away. Now to find more.
Even More Jesus brewed in Spain. It was decent but nothing too impressive.
Not my favorite Trillium hoppy beer but in general I find that even mediocre Trillium hoppy beers are better than most hoppy beers.
Only managed to grab the regular BCBS this year (and a bottle of Barleywine for @hc4thehc
) but I also had a nice relaxing Black Friday free of getting up early and waiting in lines - so I'm happy. (Not to mention it should be pretty easy to trade for the Regal Rye) I'm not a huge fan of the new bottle format. One - I think it looks kinda silly. Two - I liked the 12oz bottles. 500ml of a 14% is just too much for me. Three - Pricepoint is really annoying. I'm paying about $10 for regular and $11 for Barleywine here for one bottle. Last year I could get 4 packs for $20. Frustrating. Unfortunately, I can't really complain about the format because this is probably the best fresh batch of BCBS. I've ever had. In previous years, it's been too boozy for my tastes when fresh. This year is really smooth. There's also a bit more bitterness this year vs last. I think it's welcome though - it's a good way to cut the sweetness.
