Looks like I need to try the Union Jack. From Firestone I usually drink Wookey Jack or Sucaba and Parabola if I can get my hands on them. You should also pick up a bottle of Stone Enjoy By if you ever see it at Trader Joes. I think they carried the last few releases.

Russian River has some solid sours. Beatification, Supplication, Consecration, Compunction, Sanctification, Temptation. Tough to get your hands on these though unless you take a trip up to the Bay area.

Way too many to remember after drinking them.

Lately I have been downing many sixers of Dales Pale Ale. The can just makes it so awesome.

I happen to think Dogfish Head 90 minute is the best tasting beer on the planet.

If its super hot or If I feel like drinking all day it's Bud Light. A good amount of time on the boat we start with a few Modelo on the ride home to get the engine started then we switch to a light. It's a good way to lose a finger filleting fish but we do it anyway.

I'll pick up a growler of one of their sours on the way up as well as a couple of pliny. If you have any special requests from Russian River, I'll be happy to pick something up.

If you see it around, try the Deviant Dales. It's their IPA. It's only sold in tall cans and it comes in 4 packs. Very tasty!

My wife spent four days over the weekend camped in the back of my truck up in the mountains east of Warner Springs at a gymkhana competition. She took plenty of Sculpin with her, and its a good thing. Apparently the barrel racing set is not very sophisticated about beer. Sitting around at dinner in the evening she could break out a Sculpin, and people would say "what's that" and ask for a taste. A lot of them seemed to convert. She gave away about half of her stash.

Heady!! Been on the lookout for this one for a long time. My buddy got his hands on a can of it last year from a private seller on a beer fanatics website. I forgot to ask him if he ever drank it. I have yet to see it anywhere!

Picked up a bottle of Firestone Stickee Monkee at BevMo over the weekend. Can't wait to crack it open but going to save it for a special occasion.

Another excellent IPA in a can is Swami's. They usually have it to go at the Pizza Port near your house. One of my favorites to take on the boat.

I love the idea of your wife sharing the Sculpin stoke.

What happened to the post about the new Stone releases? I was wondering where you can get two cases...where my shop has a limit of two bombers.

Anyways regarding canned beers...Swami's is awesome...but my go to for the last year has been Modern Times Blazing World....So delicious, same alcohol content as Swamis but a pint just disappears before you know it...creamy, dank, sticky, lots of flavors and nose going on but totally balanced.

That was me! The Enjoy By is so good, I buy 1 case for my house. This time, I bought a 2nd case for the BABL instead of bringing growlers. Whole Foods does not have limits on beer sales. I have purchased a case from the Stone Store in the past.

Stone has two double IPAs coming out now: RuinTEN and Unapologetic


Ruinten is frickin delicious! Can't wait to swoop up on some bottles!

Recent beer tasting notes....

Had a couple/three Pliny's...seemed not as good as in the past....still excellent though.

Seems Lagunitas does not put any dates on their beers....Latest bottle of "Sucks" by them seemed one dimensional to me ...probably lost all it's subtleties by not being fresh....Fresh "Sucks" is killer.

Modern Times Blazing World still continues to blow me away. Like liquid Art in a can.
Distributed by Stone distributers which goes up into the OC...not sure about LA. Find some...but stay off my spots kooks.

Tried a bomber of "Enjoy by"... Thought it was excellent.....especially the nose and back end.....but it reminded me of Blazing World....but like 50% less concentrated aromatics and missing the creamy mouth feel.

Warning* Magic Hat - #9
Saw this showing up lately on shelves.
Thought it might be decent coming from Vermont
IDK if they left this shipment sitting in the sun or what.
Tasted like toe cheese dirty dishwater, weird sweet and smoky that gagged me.

Had a bomber of Enjoy By on the boat last night as the sun was setting with fresh Hamachi. It was quite possibly the best beer I've ever had. Probably had a lot to do with the atmosphere and stoke of the day but damn that shit is good!

If you do come across one, I would appreciate it.


Also, try the Tap Hunter app. We used it last night and found pliny on tap at a couple local spots up here in Tustin/OC.

I live in Irvine (Culver/73).

I have used Tap Hunter, I did not think about searching for Pliny using the app. Thank you! Now if I could figure a way to get out of the house to try some on tap, I am too busy changing diapers (Mr. Mom style).


If you get a chance to get out, Tustin Brewery up on Newport Blvd has it on tap right now. Tried to stop in for a pint last night but we missed last call. Across the street is good liquor store called Bradleys fine wines and spirits that gets shipments of it in pretty often. :obscene-drinkingcheers:

I'm totally overwhelmed by this thread. It could be a full time job just trying to track down all the beers mentioned.

My wife and I went into BevMo the other day, and I couldn't even count the number of IPAs, much less recall which of them you guys have recommended.

Unfortunately, my wife is now fixated on Sculpin, even though I pointed out that is was almost twice as expensive as Lagunitas.

Oh well, at least she isn't one of those " a glass of white wine" women.

TGIF everyone.
Some recently consumed and next on deck.

Couple Belgian's...they were okay...I don't care for the spice so much.

Ruinten and Hoptimum I thought were very similar...both use 5 lbs of hops per barrel.
Both over 10% alcohol will sneak up on you....like two beers for the price of one....Hoptimum was more memorable for me.

Peanut butter milk stout by belching beaver...stouts are not my favorite style..I do enjoy them but they are so filling they tend to make me sleepy after a small glass..I usually have them as a nite cap. This bottle took me four nites to finish....I think the best glass by far was on the fourth night..the flavors really opened up and came through.

Fresh squeezed IPA...my kind of beer....lots of nose, balanced citrus, pine, fruity, dank, juicy and goes down easy. Bottle dated best by 9/9... Today is 6/27... So 2 1/2 months out...I bet if I found a really fresh batch it would rock my world.

Looks like we have similar tastes. Stopped by the store today to see if they had an pliny for Haffner. They were out but I did pick up some other stuff:

Did a family road trip into Colorado for my daughter's softball tournament. Stopped in at Tommy Knocker Brewery in a cool old mining town called Idaho Springs. Had their IPA and a 1/2 on tap and I liked it so much, I had to stop on the way home and pick up a 12'er in cans. If you're ever traveling through that way, it's definitely worth the time to stop. The best fish tacos I've ever had outside of those I make myself from a fresh kill.

Beeer.... :obscene-drinkingcheers:

I'm an equal opportunity beer lover...I like light cheap beer right when I get out of the water or on real hot days, but also love IPAs.





There is a great BBQ joint just up the road from my house that has an awesome selction of craft beer on tap, excellent food, and live free blues every night.

If you are in the Santa Cruz area you should stop in...recently I have been able to get Stone RuinTen, Stone GotoIPA, Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, Drakes Alpha Session IPA, bunch of Ninkasis, Anderson Valleys etc etc...

http://aptosstbbq.com/



Right down the road is burger. that has a real nice selection as well:

And I'm lucky enough that when I go home to NOLA to visit my Dad there are usually four very nice beers on tap:

Meh...
Bit of a disappointment with this one for me.
Really wish I would of stuck with the spectacular hoppy goodness of "Swami's" or the refreshing crispyness of "Ponto".
With a name like "Chronic" you'd think it would be dank....but instead getiing a bit of rancid cheese in the nose and back end.

Back up in Montana and after a long summer away, sipping on some of my favorites again.

Tamarack Brewing Co (Missoula, MT) has a seasonal and oh so delicious Brown Ale that is worth picking up if you find it.
Big Sky Brewing has a great *itty bitty* IPA, Pygmy Owl. Not as strong and was a good choice for my busy who is still shy of IPAs.
Also from Big Sky, Summer Honey. Honey wheat ale. My girlfriend's favorite and a close second to Moose Drool for BSB's best beer.

Grapefruit Sculpin...for my taste a notch above regular Sculpin, much fruitier in a balanced natural way. Get Some, then get some more.
Cold Bore a local micro brewery by a ex navy diver...pretty good, by not as memoralble after the GF Sculpin.
Deviant Dales pretty damn excellent 8% IPA...To my dismay..didn't check the date and it was seven months old and yet still awesome..need to find a fresher one.
Mountain of Abalone steaks pounded and ready for immediate consumption.

If anyone is ever in Denver, CO you have to go check out the Crooked Stave Brewery, they are hands down the best sours I have ever had in my life.

Grapefruit?!! I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one!!

I was up in SF on Saturday night for my old college roommate's birthday party at the HiLoClub and they had some killer beers on tap.

My favorites were the Sculpin and the Hoptologist Double IPA.

Finsihing the night off with a Macallan 12 on the rocks didn't suck either...my wife was driving. ;)
