Another 3 Floyd's Imperial IPA? How many do they make now?
Today I had a Double Crooked Tree very good DIPA with a hint of sweetness in the finish.
A week ago at the Witches Hat my first time there a brewpub in South Lyon., I had their Demon Cleaner a Triple Belgium style and Big Doedish a DIPA. Both excellent. To the SEMI guys I'd highly recommend them. No food but you can carry in I'm told.
left hand wake the dead. the stout recommendations here have me hooked.
I stayed away from the Dragon's Milk chile variant. I'm really looking forward to their raspberry variant when they release it in the fall.
I'm drinking a bottle of Smashbomb Atomic IPA by Flying Monkeys of Barrie, Ontario, Canada, Earth, Milky Way, The Universe, Infinity.
I got the location info off the label.
Not to be confused with Flying Monkey (not plural) of Kanasa City, MO, USA, Earth, etc etc.
Not sure where in the USA you can buy this stuff but their importer is in Canton, Ohio, USA,...you know the rest.
Last week reps from the Flying Monkeys brewery came in to check us out and we them, to see if we would distribute their beers, they left samples and our sales manager gave me one.
Management are all Bud Light drinkers and they wanted to know if it is the real deal.
Yes it is but it's just another good IPA and there are hundreds out there.
Which btw why do all "craft" beers taste alike?
Don't get me wrong, of course there are differences but not enough to justify this craft lore that has taken hold.
Craft breweries talk about the sameness of the macros (is it macro?) how a Bud is a Miller is a Coors etc but they all seem to be trying to duplicate each other.
But that's OK, but again why don't they try something in the German style, it's all about the Scottish style of ales.
I hope we get it and I hope we sell a ka-zillion cases, I work for the money and Bud has been very good to my family.
OK, I like Smashbomb Atomic IPA, it's a quality product and very drinkable.
On the grapefruit to pine scale I'd say light on the grapefruit.
It's better than anything Bell's sells except Hopslam.
But it is no where near my favorites, Arcadia Hop Mouth, Founders Centennial and Hopslam.
In spite of the bold name I'd call it an excellent session beer.
Sipping on an Evil Twin I Love You With My Stout. Solid, very good, but when you invoke "Even More Jesus", I expect spectacular. Fortunately, there is an Aun Mas a Cafe Jesus sitting around, just begging to be opened...

Pouring a Deschutes Mirror Mirror BA barley wine at room temperature. This is a damn nice beer. Thinking about going for a few more bruisers tonight.
