    Looks awesome @Cola, going to go look for it at my local store.

    I ended up picking this up at my local LCBO last Friday, on a beer run with friends I saw it on a final run through of the store (Was looking for more Wychwood) and picked it up straightaway.

    I'm always up for supporting microbrews made in Canada and holy crap this stuff is delicious, normally I'm not a cider guy (Though according to friends what I've had before now isn't top rate) but oh man it's just awesome.

    They may or may not export it, if they don't I'll just do another Canada run like last EPIC.

    So I'm drinking what we've dubbed: Rear

    I have this Rear in my mouth, it's a shot of Kraken in a vanilla porter. It's strangely delicious, and I'm not sure if I'm crazy for liking this. @UPSLynx will agree, this stuff is worth a shot.

    This was a little hoppy for my tastes but it was still relatively enjoyable, far more so after a cider or two. (On that dear gods I have a problem it's like drinking alcoholic soda I just can't stop.)

    I was surprised by this one, if only because I'm not particularly impressed with Snake Dog.

    I'm discovering that you don't want to spend your entire night with Rear in your mouth

    Visited Coronado Brewing Co. last night and checked that off my conquest list - tasters are second cheapest in SD behind Green Flash, but bonus points for flights. Ballast Point will be next...

    No one's upset at $3 pints.

    @MiracleManS - I've been on an IPA kick lately. Heavy Seas Loose Cannon got me started a couple months ago, I got some on tap with a good steak and ever since I've been sampling new ones. I had my first Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA of the year a few weeks ago. It's balanced but kind of sweet and syrupy in comparison. I actually prefer The Truth from Flying Dog, it's more earthy and floral, has that nice hop forward bitterness. The best IPA coming out of that brewery.

    I agree on Snake Dog, something one dimensional about it. It's almost like eating grapefruit.

    What did you think of the Angry Orchard? I personally love it. I am not a fan of the Ginger, but the Seasonal Cinnamon Apple was fantastic.

  • MiracleManSMiracleManS Icrontian Chambersburg, PA Icrontian
    @Cliff_Forster if you like earthy, the 60min is far more earthy to me than the 90min. I find the Sixty-One as a good change of pace.

    I also highly recommend trying to find Schlafly Tasmanian IPA. Absolutely my favorite IPA in existence. The single source galaxy hops are so, so amazing.

    Give Heavy Seas Black Cannon a try too. It's a wonderful take on a Black IPA.

    If you are every in Kona, make this brewery one of your stops. Great bear and even better pizza. They use their spent grains in their pizza dough.

    Had a coworker give me a sixer of this (and another cider) after I restored his accidentally deleted email last year. It was quite tasty.

    I'm also a fan of Strongbow if you can get your hands on it (doubly so if you can find it on tap! They have it at Buffalo WildWings around here at least...)

    Had 2 glasses of Leaky Roof Mead last night. Pretty good stuff, reminded me a lot of hard ciders, and it's made in Buffalo Missouri.

    Could have tried some Angry Orchard, but decided to save it for another time.

    I've had two of Stone Brewing's Arrogant Bastard Ale in the past two days, and, well, it's exactly as the label suggests, an aggressive beer. I've also had the pleasure of drinking Firestone's Union Jack IPA, and it's not bad for an IPA.

    How the fuck is a Weizen seriously different than a Pilsner glass?

    The picture is bad and it should feel bad.

    Weizen glasses are often mistakenly referred to as Pilsner glasses, but a true Pilsner glass has an even taper without curvature.

    Drinking a bottle of Crunkle Sam. I got it just because of the label.

    Clown Shoes is awesome. Their stouts Vampire Killer and Blaecorn Unidragon are fantastic.

    The only one I've had from them is their Black IPA which had strong notes of vinyl. Would not recommend.

    Absente

    Disappointed to find out this isn't actual absinthe, but at least now I have some idea of what to expect from the real thing. I'll invest in a good bottle soon.
