    This is all subjective. PtE might be other's favorite beer in the world and that's fine. I don't get too involved in the beer geek world (I just like to explore and find new beers), but I will say that most things Russian River tend to have a built-in hype going for them. Hence how I even heard of PtE and PtY in the first place.

    My opinion is that while PtE is a fantastic beer, it lacked the creaminess that Citra and Maharaja had which I truly enjoyed. I also got a bit more depth and complexity out of Citra and Maharaja than I did with PtE (which seemed to be more crisp and clear last I had a pint). Now, as with all things, your mileage may vary. Doesn't make me any more right than you. It's all just fancy foo-foo beer!

    Default Sam Adams Utopias

    Has anybody ever tasted this? I have an opportunity to taste this for $10. Just wondering if its worth the price.

    I have not. Do you know how much of taste you'll be getting? 2oz? 5oz? For the price, which seems acceptable, I'd be interested to try it, although extreme high ABV beers don't interest me too much.

    Utopias...not even beer IMO. Anything you can put the cap back on and let sit...sounds like hard booze.

    I have really wanted to like this beer. Tried it fresh, tried some after a year, 2 years and finally a bottle just recently. Slight change, but still tasted like a syrupy mess.
    ChilledAgua and Stormy2213 like this.
    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

    Oof, I didn't like that stuff when it came out and a bottle that I saved for 3 years tasted just a bad as the first one I got. Try and trade it for something good. I'm sure there is a "want" list out there with this dreck on it.
