    I finally got my hands on Union Jack from Firestone. One of the best IPAs out there ! Don't pass this one up if you see it in stores. It is a very earthly one, and safe to say it would make my top 5 IPA list. It really reminds me of Hair of the Dog's "Blue Dot" Double IPA.

    Here is what we consumed thus far over the weekend. Included, is text copy/pasted from my personal online blog.

    Boston Beer Company

    LongShot Grape Pale Ale (3.75 / 5.0) *Not too shabby, refreshing most of all.


    De Struise Brouwers

    Pannepot - Old Fisherman’s Ale (4.0 / 5.0)*Pretty good Quad !


    HaandBryggeriet

    HaandBryggeriet Dark Force (4.25 / 5.0) * The most obscure beer I have ever tasted but in a very good way. Tastes like an Imperial Stout, but goes down with no syrup-like typical imperial stout characteristics. Imperial Stout for sure, but at the same time you're throwing down a smoothe wheat ale. Just strange but a good strange.


    Klosterbrauerei Weltenburg

    Hefe Weissbier Hell (3.75 / 5.0) *Somewhat let down.... Definitely prefer the Paulaner and Franziskaner hefs to this one.

    Kloster Winter-Traum (4.0 / 5.0)* Awesome brew.

    Weltenburger Kloster Asam-Bock (4.25 / 5.0)* FANTASTIC Dopplebock. A must have.


    Three Floyds Brewing Co. / Brewery & Pub

    Robert The Bruce Scottish Ale (3.75 / 5.0) *This stuff was damn near horrendous for its style, avoid!!!


    Widmer Brothers Brewing Company

    W’07 Pale Ale (4.0 / 5.0) * Surprisingly this was very good, considering it was from Pissmer.

    Victory "Twelve" and Horny Devil Ale are both terrific. HD has lots of coriander and other spices, while "Twelve" is just a lovely, rich brew.

    I'm on a self-imposed sabbatical for the month of April. Please mourn for me.

    Had a Anderson Valley 20th Anniversary IPA last night. Was pretty good. Refreshing for an IPA. Clocks in at 8.7%. I also had a Firestone Union Jack. That had some serious bite to it. Strong taste of alcohol. Very bitter. Not something I would want to drink more than one of in a sitting. Wrecks your taste buds for anything that comes after it.

    I still need to get around to the Anderson Valley 20th Anniversary. Their Hop Ottin IPA is by far one of my favorite IPAs, so I am sure the 20th will be in fashion as well.

    The Union Jack is absolutely killer ! I had no problem putting 3 down in a sitting, but definitely wouldn't go past that.

    I just picked up Serpents Stout from The Lost Abbey. I will report back on that once I've tried it.
