There is still plenty of Sierra Nevada 2009 Harvest Wet Hop Ale selling in my area, and I picked up 4 more 24oz bottles tonight.  I can't believe it's still available.  This is supposed to be a fall seasonal brew and I've been buying it for about  8 months now.  It's one of my all time favorites.

Sam Smith IPA & Stone IPA. Should make an interesting comparison of old world vs. new world.

I prefer the Stone IPA over Samuel Smith's. The Smith is a fine tasting IPA but has a touch more malt and less hops than the Stone, as would be guessed from an English brew.

The hops are very much up front on the Stone, very citrusy & piney. It really compliments the home made salsa very well.

Sweetwater Brewing out of Atlanta just arrived in my area  applaudit.gif

So I picked up a sixer of Sweetwater IPA. Also, the distributor in my area finally started distributing Ruination again  1022.gif  so I can finally enjoy fresh Ruination once again. I picked up a couple of bombers of that.

I also picked up a sixer of Oaked Arrogant Bastard and a 750ml bottle of DFH Miles Davis Bitches Brew  trink38.gif

It was a really good day.  653.gif

At Fresh Market today and they have single beers so you can put together your own six packs and while they don't have the largest selection to pick from it was decent. Here was my six pack:

Anchor Porter
Young's Porter
Sam Adams Octoberfest
Munich Spaten
Bass Ale
Redhook Winter Lager

The Anchor Porter was very good. Not Stone Smoked Porter good but very good.

Shoulda put this here first, but I'm having 3 Floyds Dreadnaught IPA for the first time. Wow. It's like Ruination except with more peach & grapefruit on the nose and the same dry, hoppy bitter aftertaste. Lots of hops.

I can see why these are so highly rated. I was hoping to find a Alpha King Pale Ale but the Dread is awesome. It'll be interesting to compare the Ruination next.

edit to add: as I'm finishing this bottle I have to say that this brew really combines the best qualities of a double IPA (mainly much hoppiness) with great flavors and easy drinkability. Here, here 3 Floyds!

For my upcoming birthday my loving wife indulged my beer drinking with a surprise 6 pack of Bell's Hopslam (I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago and she saw some at the liquor store). I have read some glowing reviews of it and I'm halfway through my first glass right now.

The aroma is something else: tons of citrus and grapefruit and mango. As the name implies it has a very strong hoppy, bitter finish but not as raw as, say, Ruination IPA by Stone Brewery.

It must have a high booze content because after about 6 ounces I'm all warm and fuzzy and all is right with the world.

Clearly this is a world class IPA but I don't think I could rate it higher than the 3 Floyds Dreadnaught I've had previously. There is a limited supply of Hopslam and it is damned expensive at $18.99 for a six pack (hell, I remember when I could get 4 cases of Natty Light for 20 bucks).

Great brew from one of the best breweries so if you see one at your store try it.

Brought home a couple of Sierra Nevada brews: Hoptimum & Northern Hemisphere Harvest

And a six pack of Bell's Two-Hearted Ale.

So far the Hoptimum has been disappointing. It's like the SA Pale Ale with some bitter hops aftertaste...not that great. Haven't hit the NH Harvest yet or the Bell's.

Have fajitas on the way so I think I'll break out the Bell's for that. I'm thinking spicy should go with the hops. We'll see.

Yeah, great stuff.

The Two-Hearted Ale is excellent also, like a scaled down version of the Hopslam. Probably my favorite non-Imperial IPA. I think it's going to move into the starting rotation.

I have to say that I'm very disappointed in the SA Hoptimum. Not very rich, a raw bitter aftertaste, not much aroma.
