It is really tough to go to a 2x IPA night like last night on a work day. I wanted to try all of them but I wouldn't have been able to get up this morning if I did that. I did try Alameda's Yellow Wolf and Port Hop 15. Both were very easy to drink and very strong. The Yellow Wolf was more my style than the Hop 15 but they were both tasty.
Took sips of the Kulshan and the North Sound Bourbon. The 2x IPA that was in bourbon barrels had a harsh first sip but once your pallet adapted to the bourbon shock it was quite nice.
Do you guys love great craft beer? Do you get super excited while strolling the beer isle when you see new releases from your favorite breweries? Do you love a good imperial IPA, double red, or oak-aged stout? Then never move to Texas (as if you needed a reason).
I'm gonna shotgun a few Lone Stars later today. Then tomorrow I am meeting a fellow boarder in Austin. Any guesses on who that might be?
Does anyone want to send me a 22oz of Pumpkin beer? Nobody sells any down here and I am hankering for one (actually there is a brewery in Austin that makes one but I have heard it is kind of a joke). Help a brother out?
