    Brew Dog Paradox Caol Islay
    Brew Dog Paradox Glen Grant
    Brew Dog Paradox Glen Moray
    Brew Dog Paradox Imperial Speyside
    Brew Dog Paradox Macallan Sherry
    Bridgeport Old Knucklehead

    Dogfish Head Immort Ale
    Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale
    Dogfish Head Raison D'Etre
    Dogfish Head Red and White
    Eel River Ravens Eye
    Mikkeller Black
    Nogne 0 Imperial Stout
    Nogne 0 IPA
    Nogne 0 Winter Ale
    Nils Oscar Imperial Stout
    Rogue Red Fox
    Rogue White Crane
    Roque XS Brewers Ale
    Skagit Trumpeter

    I just returned from a trip to Colorado (and Avery!!). Found a bunch of beers we can't get out here in California yet. I had a Deschutes 20th Anny Wheat (very disappointing) and a few from Dogfish Head (Raison D'Etre - very bad IMO. Way too sweet and syruppy and I hate sweet beers. It is brewed with Raisons but sucks compared to the Lost Abbey brews) and a Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (Better but still very syruppy) I also got an Avery Samaels (very good and should only get better with age). I am cellering the other 2 in the Avery lineup (The Beast and Mephistopholes) I visited about 6 micro brewpubs in the rockies area. Colorado in the summer doesn't do IPAs worth crap (except Avery). They excell in Pilsners and lighter brews IMO. The trip to Avery in Boulder was the best part. Everything they put out is very good. Sampled about 9 on tap including a Nitro version of something I can't remember right now. I am really noticing the American micro producers are blurring the lines between the styles. I had an "IPA Brown" made with Maple Syrup from Tommyknockers that was pretty good. And I have been seeing Belgian IPAs popping up too. Leave it to America to create new tastes.

    That was the high alcohol content numbing your tongue

    I tried one of those too on Friday. Strange smell, kind of like Shoe Goo. I'd like to see how this one does over some time.

    The BevMo in Glendora has it, and so does Lone Hill Liquor which is also in Glendora. It was released on Monday, if I recall...

    Thanks. I'm headed to BevMo either tonight or tomorrow (Long Beach). I'll keep my eyes out.

    I just picked up 8 bottles of the Vert 08. It only seemed right.
