    Don't worry tooch. It's not me. That is just unfucking real

    Decent IPA but lacks the character of something like hopslam or double trouble. Cheaper though

    Dark Lord sucks anyways! Sell it for real, if people are dumb enough to spend the money then by all means do it!

    Racer 5 is an awesome IPA, you can get bombers for $3.99! It's a single IPA, so of course it won't compare to Hopslam or Double Trouble that's like comparing a Dodge to a Mercedes, they're totally different. I'd still take Two-Hearted over most IPAs anyday...

    Also, you should stop being nice to people and keep BA 4D our secret! You're ruining everything...

    Purchased 2 more bottles of KBS today and 2 bottles of Double Trouble for a total of $11.00. I made friends with the sales clerk/manager at a beer store and he asked me if i was interested in buying the last 2 bottles of KBS. I went there looking for Black Gold (they were sold out) and Big John (not yet in inventory).

    Thursday I went to a vertical tasting of Bigfoot Barleywine. I had '01, '02, '07, and '10. The '07 was the best for my money. the '01 and '02 just didn't hold up all that well. Last night I had Life and Limb from '09 from Sierra Nevada and some imperial stout from them as well.

    Had this at a local pub and really enjoyed it. It's like drinking berry captain crunch. [​IMG]

    Taking a 6-pack of rogue dead guy to Easter dinner later today. Are they going to get the joke, or will I be mortally offending my friend's grandmother? [​IMG] Oh well, I'll just drink two or three and by then I won't care anyway. I'm not planning on being invited back...

    Been about three years since I've had real beer. I'm trying to spend my summer vacation drinking wines, but Sierra Nevada PA will make an appearance, for sure.
