    OB Golden Lager with a mess of Korean BBQ last night. Hadn't manned a charcoal grill since Thanksgiving Day's rotisserie roast, so that felt good.

    But think how awful it would be if it was brewed and sold only in, say, Arizona!

    And perhaps the real bummer for you is that Fat Squirrel is no longer a year-round brew from NG.

    Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale. I love Barleywine styles.

    I just had a bomber of the same, one that I sought out based upon your recommendation here. I thought it was ok, but I won't be going back to it. The hops are nice, but it's just too boozy for me. 9.5% just isn't necessary, unless you hide the ABV well. This has that bottomless well of sweet thing going on that demonstrates a lack of grace IMO.

    Then when I looked at the label and saw it was made with wheat, I liked it even less. I'm glad that I was able to get an impression without knowing that it was a wheat beer (tell the truth, the label says 20% wheat, but I don't know how much wheat is usually used in wheat beers), because I avoid them as a rule. The hops were tasty here, but for me, the beer is excessive. It's only the second Pipeworks brew I've had (out of the seemingly never-ending variety of labels they produce), and I felt similarly about the other one I had - Ca$h 4 Golden Ale.

    I still intend to seek out Ninja vs. Unicorn.

    Thought I would check out the Hopslam movement with a 6 pack I picked up yesterday. Not a huge hops fan generally although I have a lot of beers with a hop-centric focus. Hard not to since it is the seeming trend these days and of course that is what this one is all about. I am more of a fan of Dogfish Head's Midas Touch. Thought the honey might work well to balance this one some. Certainly drinkable but not one I will be going out of my way to look for again.

    So more for the rest of you!

    May try my bottle of Dogfish Head Noble Rot next to see if that one is more appealing to my palate.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
