I'm very excited by the latest addtions, all from the Deschutes Brewery in Oregon:

1 bottle 2007 The Abyss Imperial Stout
1 bottle 2008 The Abyss Imperial Stout
2 bottles 2009 The Abyss Imperial Stout
1 bottle 2009 Mirror Mirror Barleywine Ale

The Abyss is currently rated as the #3 beer in the world according to BA, and I've never had it. Interestingly enough these beers come with a "Best After" date. So only the 2007 & 2008 are acceptable to drink right now according to the brewery. Think I'll crack the '07 this weekend.

Enjoy that Life and Limb  trink38.gif

Only two stores in my area got any of Life and Limb, and they didn't get much. And by the time I found out about it, it was all gone  sad.gif

edit: hearing some real positive buzz about Sam Adams Noble Pils. Anybody tried it yet?

Scored a sixer of Bells Hopslam today. Got real lucky. Only one store in town got any and they only got 2 cases, so it was a 1 sixer limit and I got the 2nd to last one.  653.gif

the illusive Hopslam......totally jealous.  I have a buddy in Ohio who regularly torments me (See attached) regarding Hopslam.  How do you rate it, Snowdog?  Like compared to your other comparable hoppy nectars?

Been looking for the Gubna, but it hasn't gotten to Florida yet. I've read mixed reviews on it. The hops are supposed to be way over the top (which isn't a bad thing to me) but they are all Summit hops and give it a taste that you either love or hate.

Curious as to what your take is on this. Let us know  trink39.gif

Added some more SN 30th Fritz & Ken, Weyerbacher Heresy, Weyerbacher Insanity, Anderson Valley Hoppin' Ottin IPA, Victory Prima Pils and Cigar City Jai Alai IPA

edit for spelling

the GUBNA was yummy, but a bit too malty-sweet for me.  Im more in favor of the bitter slap-yo-face over-hoppiness than the sweet pungent hops in over abundance.  but i liked it, it was enjoyable.  at 9.5abv, it isnt something id have more than two cans of.  the whole can thing was weird for me too.

Malty IPAs & DIPAs annoy me. I just don't enjoy one that has a sweetness to it. I think the Ruination slogan applies, "I'm very bitter and I like it!"

I'll try Gubna when it gets to Florida, but from all I've read so far, I probably won't like it.

As far as the can thing, yeah it is a bit strange paying $$$ for beer in a can, but everything I've tried so far from Oskar Blues has been very enjoyable, so I'm not going to gripe about packaging. But I will gripe about the contents if I don't like it  tongue.gif

Stone's Ruiniation is in my top 3 beers all-time.  In fact, I'm wearing my "I'm bitter, and I love it" Stone shirt as I type this..lol.  I tried the Dale's Pale Ale last week.  Bottle King rated it at 100 - which surprised me a bit.  I liked it as well, by I though 100 rating was off by a good amount IMO.  

I'm still seriously hung up on the Captain Lawrence DIPA.  But I'm undergoing therapy for it.  One 16.9 oz bottle at a time....
