    Just finished a bottle of Stone/Port/GF Highway 78. Eh, pretty pedestrian. Mild chocolate malt and not a whole lot else. Alcohol content not well hidden. Lacks depth. Much better scotch ales out there.

    Last night had a bottle of Scuplin. Excellent. Of all the IPA's I've had, this one gave me the most nuances of fruit. Had hints of apricot and melon within the hops. Enjoyed it.

    Friday night got tanked on pints of 90min IPA (overly sweet but okay), Andy Gator (okay, nothing special), Alagash Black (enjoyed. will have to revisit this one), and Ten Fidy.

    thanks for that. now I'll know to not get that bottle next time I hit the store.

    btw, I just had the Double Jack. I found it to be a bit harsh as it was not easily drinkable. my wench liked it, though.

    I picked up a new one over the weekend that I hadn't seen before, the Scaldis Triple. I loved their Noel, so I figured their Triple would be right on par - but no! A very bland, uninspired, and basic triple. Not worth the 16 dollar price tag :(

    A buddy of mine was at some tasting in Phoenix over the weekend, and brought me back a growler of The Lost Abbey's Red Poppy. Absolutely delicious (I've had it before) again, this time around. Apparently, Tomme Arthur of the LA threw in a keg of the stuff for this tasting, or something like that. So my buddy was able to bring back a full growler and asked if I wanted it......and of course I did!

    Alrighty folks!

    With the warmer days approaching (85 yesterday), I am definitely going into the same transition I did last summer (PBR, craft lagers, etc) as the barleywines and imperial stouts are slightly less appealing in general during the summers here. We had plans to BBQ some burgers last night, so I dropped by the new Fresh N Easy and picked up some ****ing awesome jalapeno/poblano burger patties for me, and the bacon cheddar patties for my wife. Of course, I had to drop by the beer section, and came across a beer I noted last time I was there, called Dutch Republic 1581. $3.99/6 pack. I figured, why the hell not??? I was going to be BBQing, and what better than to throw back a few cold ones while grilling. So I picked up a 6'er, popped one open when I got home to start BBQing, and I LOVED it! Put it down in a matter of minutes, and went onto my second of the BBQing session. No bull****, no glasses for a pour, just drank them straight out of the bottle! Definitely brought me back to the high school days of beer consumption

    I want to call it a Heineken clone to some extent, as the Euro Pale Lager (specifically the Holland sub-style if you will) was evident. However, even though this beer comes in a green bottle - I detected NO skunk to it! Also, it isn't nearly as heavy as Heineken is. This stuff is far better than some of its competitors (Orangeboom, 3 Horses, etc) and at 4 dollars a 6 pack, you can simply not beat it. No joke, I could have put down 12 of these last night if I felt like it.

    Definitely recommended for those on a budget, or prefer to go cheap when going cheap during the hot summer months. I'm definitely picking up more of this next time I go to Fresh n Easy!

    Some of these cheap beers can really go a long way if you look for them. These "cheap" beers, are less expensive, and far better than your Bud, Miller, and Coors stuff. I have nothing but the utmost of respect for many of these underground blue collar lawnmowing type of beers.

    I just don't seem to ever get an impulse to stray away from my beloved dark beers, weather be damned. There are some good lighter beers I've had, though. Kona Longboard Lager being one.

    To me pale lagers all tend to taste the same and they all tend to taste similar to the Bud/MGD/Coors of the world, so I tend to stay away.

    I don't either, but if its new to me, I'll try it for the sake of having something new to add to the list. Turns out, this one was definitely a winner for both its taste and price, which is a rare bonus.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I just have to remind myself that as I go about picking up a pack of lagers.

    has anyone tried the Hermitage stuff? I've been reading up on it ever since I got that Bevmo special in the email recently. here's the link to a pretty well-written review of three of Hermitage's stuff.

    Beers in Review: Hermitage Ale of the Hermit, Menage a Singe and Hoptopia Double IPA | BetterBeerBlog

    I'll look into grabbing one of their IPAs and check back with you.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    The Irondale Double Chocolate stout I talked about a page or so ago I believe is brewed by Hermitage. It sucked, to be honest. But I'm up for trying something new.

    The Menage a Singe should be a great beer with three monkeys on the label! Actually tried it with psychopuck a year ago. OVER CARBONATED which is a shame because what was left was monkey bliss.
