    Ouch, a little harsh on us Pliny fans, don't you think?

    I love's me some KRBC JO IPA, but there is no denying a fresh Pliny. Both VERY GOOD examples of what great IPA we have coming out of Cali. We are lucky to have such a great range of outstanding IPAs to choose from. Pliny, Sculpin, JO or Citra, Lagunitas, Union Jack - the list goes on. So lucky to have great choices in IPA (not to mention all the other varieties being produced here in state).

    BTW, I bottled the IPA yesterday and poured a bit just to taste. I have a feeling this one might be a special batch. I'll know in a couple of weeks for sure. I'll be sure to report back. And, we may be heading to Lake Isabella in a couple of weeks. I'll post then as well. Maybe some of the beer reporters here will be in Kernville when we are. I'd love for you to buy me a Citra!

    in a couple of weeks? hmmm I wasn't really planning on going til the weather cools down and the river slows down.

    besides, I don't think they'll have the Citra ready til Fall, as I was told last month.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    tried the Parabola 2011 last night. wow. poured in a goblet with a bit of head but not thin. looked dark with brown caramelly color. smelled cognac and hints of chocolate. felt creamy and smooth with ticklish maltiness. a good swift kick to the ass level of alcohol content.

    this would be a better example of an aged beer. need to grab another bottle or two then store it away for a long while. well worth the $15.

    I need to start following this thread again. On that point, i randomly found a 32OZ Corona Familiar. I had never seen it before nor heard about it, so i had to give it a try. I actually liked it a lot, had that subtle taste of corona but smoother like a darker beer (think Newcastle). I want to say its Corona's version of Dos Equis Amber (as opposed to their respective lager), but without the harder, bitter after taste Dos Equis Amber has.

    btw, KRBC's JO IPA just won the Gold Medal for American-style IPA at the San Diego Beer Festival.

    How many beers have you tried? I saw that beer the other day but I didn't pick it up. Pale lagers don't do much for me. The only one I've had thus far that was a cut above the rest was Kona Longboard Lager.

    I've basically reconciled it in my mind that Mexican beer just won't give me what I want. Negro Modelo was better, but even that left me wanting a lot more. I was in Total Wine in Thousand Oaks and saw a couple Mexican beers that I'd never seen before, both in cans. One was called Chupacabra, IIRC. Next time I'm there I'll pick up one of each and try them out. There may be hope yet.

    I day dream of moving to Mexico and starting up a craft brewery. The names for the beers write themselves.

    Aztec Sacrifice Red Ale
    Atole Chocolate Stout
    Moctezuma’s Revenge Brown Ale
    El Cucuy IPA
    Padre Hidalgo Dubbel
    Cortez Tripel
    Me Llamo El Diablo Quad
    Abuelito Old Ale
    Yo No Saison (my buddy came up with this one)
    El Borracho Strong Ale

    Ive tried upwards of 150-175 beers id say. I go to beer tasting events and festivals whenever i have the time/money/sense to plan ahead for one. I also enjoy grabbing anything that catches my eye (and that i havent tried) at a bar or convenience/liquor store.
