Green Flash's West Coast IPA is fabulous! I still haven't had anything by Flyingdog that I can honestly say I enjoyed.

went to alesmith & green flash yesterday
alesmith: super small place but had amazing beer, their wee heavy scottish was tastey, as well as their normal X, & ESB, their barleywine was also really good, very clean place, super cool staff
green flash: pretty small (larger than alesmith), super dirty, smelled of spent grain, staff was fairly rude about where people could and couldnt stand to drink when there were no signs saying otherwise. beer was decent if you like the same beer flavor just intensified as you went down the list (6 bux for their "flight" whcih was their 9 beers on tap in a row in 2oz tasters), only ones i partially liked were their porter & their double stout which just won silver at the world beer cup, but overall very disappointing
pics to come

Had Goose Island's Matilda yesterday. A belgian style ale. Really good stuff. Came in a 4 pack. Found it at Bevmo.
Also, psychopuck got us the Stone-Firestone Walker-21st Amendment collaboration black ale. Good find. Can tase licorice, coffee and some smokiness to it. Very complex brew. Great stuff.

I like Sink the Bismarck (41%) better than Sam Adams Utopias (27%).
