    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Spring 2012

    Split a bomber of FFF Brian Boru with Karen tonight. With FFF's love of hops, it is one of the few red ales I can tolerate, still a bit malty though.

    Roge Dead Guy. My favorite in celebration of Kentucky advancing to the title game. Not sure what I'll do if they win on Monday night... there may be some champagne involved (but no burning couches)!

    Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.

    I'm not really a beer guy but I find it pretty tasty. In terms of balance I suppose I could use a tad more rye and a tad less hops, but that's really nitpicking.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    New Holland's Mad Hatter IPA and Arcadia IPA, both from great brewing state of Michigan. No clear favorite, as both were extremely enjoyable. I'm definitely a fan of Arcadia's beers and recommend them to those who enjoy English-style ales.

    Red face Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Spring 2012

    I know I am way behind the curve, but I just had my first IPA, Sweetwater from Atlanta. It was very bitter and gave a strong impression of juniper to my nose, and a strong taste of grapefruit. It was not objectionable, but it was very different from anything I've ever had, before.

    Firestone Walker's Sucaba (formerly Abacus). Great big bourbon-barrel-aged barleywine. My memory insists that it's on par with Goose Island's King Henry, but I'm not willing to open my last Henry to find out.

    Of course, King Henry was a lot better back when we thought that the fact it was aged in PVW23 barrels meant something....

    I had a Sucaba the other week. I'm just not a big fan of the barleywine style. I enjoyed my bottle (and cellared another one), but it really was a little one-sided for my taste. I much preferred the Anniversary Ale from FW, which I guess contained some of the Sucaba, among other beers.

    Heck yeah! It also has this grassy note that reminds me of playing on my grandma's farm when I was a kid.
