    Since I just moved onto a Hill Farmstead Harlan, I'll gladly enjoy my "Homer" designation for the Station Taproom!

    I like the Harlan. Very tasty. My local pub has a dedicated Hill Farmstead line.

    I had one of these. Baxter Brewing Bootleg Fireworks 2nd Edition DIPA. Very tasty, hoppy yet well balanced.



    And now I am onto a Stone's new Enjoy By 12.25.15 in a 6 oz bottle.

    Finally made it over to Tree House today.

    They had Julius and "23" for sale - 8 can limit each.

    Enjoying the Julius now. Very good brew, but I find a bit of "nail polish remover" taste in there. Kind of "chemically" taste. Not sure what specific hop or malt is producing that note, but I haven't experienced it prior. Can't say I'd rate it as highly as the Big Three from VT or even Be Hoppy for that matter. YMMV.

    Even though it was can sales only today, the line was out to the Koi pond when I arrived at 1pm. It took a hair over 45 minutes to get through, which isn't something Im going to rush back for. Not terrible, but lots of great beer out there requiring less effort. They could employ a few more people and move things along faster, but apparently many folks don't mind the wait. Pretty much everyone I conversed with in line was a repeat customer. I wouldn't have minded the wait if I could have purchased a couple cases, but for 16 cans it was excessive for my liking. I think I'll wait until the hype calms down and availability increases before heading back.

    Also of note was seeing the destruction from the tornados that hit a few years back. Way impressive display of nature's force.

    Give Julius a week. I find it a little green when it is super fresh.

    At the co-op tonight I saw a Ballast Point Habanero IPA - anyone ever tried it? Sounds seriously funky.

    Finally tried the Guinness Nitro IPA. Thumbs down. Needs more hops.

    Tried Hardcore Chimera Imperial IPA. Thumbs up!

    Yup.

    I packs a surprising amount of heat, so if hot/"spicy" things aren't your preference, then its likely you won't like it. I've found that if you can mix BP's Habanero 50/50 with their Grapefruit Sculpin that the result is a really nice mix of tart and spicy!

    The Habanero on it's own has me craving say some nacho chips and guacamole when I drink it! This id definitely one of those beers that you'll either like it, or hate it, it's got that distinct and different of a flavor profile!

    I saw the Grapefruit Sculpin too - that one definitely intrigued me more. I like a bit of tartness with an IPA.

    I wound up grabbing a pack of Foolproof Porter. Slightly chocolatey, medium-bodied porter. Not the best porter I've had, but definitely not bad either.
