In honor of Kyle Clifford being signed today, I am expanding IPA Day to IPA Long Weekend. Stay thirsty my simians.

I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

Went to the bottle shop to peruse the selection and got guilted into doing the weekly beer tasting.
Orkney Dragonhead stout - good
Fuller's London Black Cab - good
Hambleton Nightmare (yorkshire porter) - good
Samuel Smith Taddy Porter - good
Carnegie Stark Porter - good
Grand Teton 5 o'clock shadow (schwarzbier) - very good
Midnight Sun Brewtality (schwarzbier) - excellent. Super malty and sweet. Close to cloying.
Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout - bourbon came through loud and clear but a tad bit thinner than I thought it would be
Brouwerij Kerkom Bink Grand Cru (belgian strong dark) - cloyingly sweet
Bruery Tart of Darkness (sour stout) - like the bottle I had from last year, overly tart for my tastes.
Nectar Ales Black Xantus (BB imp stout) - the belle of the ball. Excellent. Then again, it's brewed by FW, so what would you expect?
Just polished off an Alesmith Yulesmith DIPA and thinking about a bottle of Lagunitas Sucks in the fridge (but not before some awesome Chinese take out).

Hop Juice DIPA at Left Coast in San Clemente. Hoppy (of course), not too bitter, and 9.7 ABV.

In honor of Hoppy IPA Weekend, I drank a buttload of Stone and Goose Island IPA's.

You know Wade's is less than a mile away from Ladyface Brewery (and to a lesser extent The Lab Brewery), right?

I was at lady face before wades, but Ive never been to the lab. How is that place?

Not a fan, but it's been close to a year since I last tried them. Their beer has been very underwhelming the few times I've had a flight. Hopefully they've improved. I always kinda wondered why they seemed to be more known around the area when I worked nearby than Ladyface. Between the two breweries, it ain't even close. Again though, it's been a while since I've tried their stuff.
