RR Blind Pig IPA. Not my style. More for you hop heads.

Blind Pig is one of my favorites, but today it was the 10-10-10. Ha dit last week on tap at the beer fest in Claremont, and it is every bit as good out of the bottle. Lucked out that the little liquor store at the end of my block received a case.

Anyone try the Sierra Nevada XXX Anniversary?

I've had two of the three XXX Anniversary beers. The Imperial Stout is excellent. Very roasty, lots of coffee, and pretty complex overall. The barleywine is surprisingly roasty (normally barleywines are more caramely and sweet) but it works nicely. Really easy to drink for a 10% brew, and should definitely age nicely.

I saw one for 9.99 at Whole Foods, didn't get it though cuz I couldn't tell what type it was.

Piling on, the Imperial Stout is delicious. Excellent is the operative word. I got a case when it came out and have 6 bottles left. It's going faster than I thought it would.

Nutty roasted deliciousness, not overwhelming by any stretch of the imagination, perfect for watching a hockey game on a cool evening, can drink all 6 of these. Not their regular hoppy madness, though the hops are still there, Sierra Nevada can apparently do no wrong.

Agreed 100%! This is why they are my favorite, and have always been.
