    the Pumpkin Ale was available in bottles at EJ Malloy's on Broadway in LBC for Halloween last year. it was pretty tasty, better than most pumpkin ales from other brewers. I think the Dogfish one is better but I was not fortunate enough to be able to grab a pack last year.

    Definitely better than Pliny. The plinys are nice, but I find them overrated. There are better IPAs out there!

    Old Viscosity. Good stuff but I'm still in love with Older Viscosity.

    Flying Dog Imperial Coffee Stout kicks the living **** out of all coffee stouts (and porters), but I still prefer that elusive Kona Pipeline Porter.

    Ahem, Pliny is not overrated by any measure. It is one of the world's best Imperial IPAs, period. To say otherwise is just being silly Az. I agree there are other great IPA's out there, but Pliny is deserving of it's reputation as one of the definitive IPA's out there.

    That being said, and in the IPA vein, I got to have a pint of the SN Hoptimum Imperial IPA last night on tap at Pour House. Wowza. Huge hop nose - citrus and pine and sweet malt. It sort of reminded me of the Bigfoot but not as malty, more hoppy. It was crazy good. It's thick and chewy and sort of hot as well. It's definitely not for the faint of heart at 10.4%. It took about 45 minutes to finish, not b/c I didn't like it - it's just a complete sipping beer. Not something to just drain the glass and move on but something to be savored and enjoyed to the fullest.

    And you'd think that after that one pint I'd had enough but Pour House also has the Drake's Hopocalypse Imperial IPA on tap as well so I had a tulip glass of that. This one was just down the scale from the Hoptimum - resiny nose, some malty sweetness present there. And a nice, clean, grapefruit and malt taste. Very, very good Imperial IPA. I could drink a lot of this as well - only it clocks in at 9.25%.

    Those 2 were plenty for the afternoon/early evening. I slept like a baby last night btw! I highly recommend both if you can find them

    just stopped by the local beer market here today. got not only FW's Reserve and Lagunitas Cappucino Stout, but grabbed one of the last Delirum Noels.

    someone must have overheard me say something the other day because all of KRBC's Just Outstanding IPAs are gone. bastard.

    sadly, SN Hoptimum hasn't arrived here yet.

    Drinking a SN Hoptimum right now. Good stuff. There were only 5 bottles left at BevMo when I picked it up. Love the taste of the whole hop cone.

    Sipping on a krug of Ladyface Russian Lullaby. Much creamier mouthfeel than I would have assumed off the pour. Good stuff. Not picking up too much chocolate, mainly coffee/espresso and roasted malts on the front with some hoppiness at the finish to balance it out. Doesn't have the depth that some other imperial stouts have, but it's good stuff. Glad I picked up this growler.

    Stopped off yesterday to the brewery and tried some of their stuff. Had a pint of their cabernet BA wiezenbock which was pretty tasty (definitely picked up the winey essence). My buddy got a pint of their 1st anni (Quad) which was quite nice. Reminded me of La Fin Du Monde with a darker color and more malt backbone. He also had his fav their which is their tripel, which reminds me even more of LFDM. Had a taster of their skunkwerks Picture City Porter with maple syrup and blueberries on cask. Interesting stuff. I'll try a pint of it next time (if they still have it) but I don't know how much more than a pint I could drink.

    Yes, they are local to Agoura Hills. LADYFACE ALE COMPANIE - ALEHOUSE & BRASSERIE

    Let me know if you're in the area. They are literally a couple miles away from my work.

    edit: their food is quite good as well, though a bit pricey.
