    They didn't have 05 at my local TJs. But they did have 04. Drank/shared them this weekend. As good as always. Had some watching the Kings game yesterday.

    Apparently this one is relatively new also. Started in December. Beware - high alcohol content of 7% but it is very drinkable.

    Very pleasantly surprised with this beer. I wasn't expecting much. An unfiltered IPA...with great hop notes. If you are at BevMo, pick one up. Only $5.99. Let me know what you think.

    Got to look for that one.

    Question, what does unfiltered mean as far as beer goes?

    Im guessing due to the unfiltering, this one might be a bit cloudy like a Hefeweizen? I believe some hefeweizens are unfiltered or partially unfiltered, resulting in the cloudy appearance... Don't quote me though!

    I will quote you because you are right, in addition to many bottle and cask aged brews. It is just yeast sentiment left behind from the fermentation. Some feel that it is higher in nutrients, much like unfiltered apple juice.
    Wasn't thinking of anything specific
    Like in a dream, when someone wakes up and screams
    Nothing too very scientific
    Just thinking of a series of dreams

    Just tried North Coast's Old Stock Ale 2009. comes in about 12.5% Old Stock Reserve Ale

    Love the bourbon taste. It goes for $21.99 at BevMo. The one in Cypress has it.

    Default From the Barrel

    This might be quite a drive for most but I figured some might want to take a road trip. I already got my ticket. Looks like they're still finalizing the lineup but so far, so good......

    I can't wait. It's going to be a blast.

    New Belgium Mighty Arrow Pale Ale

    tastes more like an IPA to me due to its hoppiness. if this comes in 6 packs, I'd go for it.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Had Firestone Walker's "Abacus" on Friday night. Barrel Aged barleywine which is used in their anniversary beers (they consist of blends of several BA beers). Honestly, they need to market this stuff and put the priority here. Not that the anniversary beers are lousy, its just that as great as they are, the Abacus kicked their asses to the dirt. The barrel is so smooth and prevalent, you don't even taste a drop of booze, and honestly you could have fooled me into thinking Abacus wasn't a barleywine. I dont know how anything at 13% can be put down like a glass of water. My guess is the long barrel aging and sweetness that barleywines develop as they mature. This stuff gave me the impression that it had to be maturing for at least 3 years. Sometimes barleywines get way too syrupy, sweet, and caramel like after they peak, but the genius effort behind this one seems to keep Abacus at an eternal peak.

    Definitely an A grade beer.

    Here was tonight's lineup

    Russian River Sanctification - Finally a blonde ale I can say kicked ass! I think it all had to do with the sourness, though.

    Russian River Salvation - Blindfold me with the design stating that "Peedge recommends the strawberry milkshake at the Mad Greek" I honestly couldn't tell you a difference between this and The Bruery's Two Turtle Doves except the label demonstrating that there was a difference of 3.5% ABV. So much roast and toasted nuttiness with superb carbonation. Hollingshead had 2 cases, so definitely seek this one! I know some on this board enjoy the Belgian Strong Dark Ales, and this is among the best of the American versions.

    Modelo Especial - I am really bummed I ignored this brew over the years. Finally one that surpasses all of the Mexican brewed beers that I have consumed. It's certainly not Black Tuesday, but I can indeed down these without the sour cheek feeling you get after taking your first sip of Uncle Darrel's beer he intentionally left for you on top of the tool storage cabinet to try when mom wasn't looking.... What is amazing is that this company also brews Corona, which tastes like Patty Roy's chode sweat - although Corona is the better of the two on paper.

    Two thumbs up for Modelo Especial! I am really digging it!
