I am on a Green Flash kick at the moment. It's my brewery du jour.

 

Currently imbibing (literally, at the moment):

I bought them at room temperature at Total Wine (greatest store ever). The first one I allowed to get too cold in the freezer. The second was cool and a better temperature.

 

This pours pitch black, like motor oil black. You can definitely taste chocolate, malt, coffee. It's fairly boozy at 8.8 ABV, so don't rifle them down like a Guinness or Murphy's.

 

Also have in the fridge:

I don't know if this is their "answer" to Russian River's Pliney the Younger, but it's their triple IPA.

One of my favourites...they also have a non-nitro milk stout that is very good as well...

 

Arrogant Bastard finally made it over the border to Canada...not sure what I expected but it wasn't worth the wait...

Yep, I have one of the non nitro in my fridge awaiting consumption.

I had a couple of these yesterday. I wish I had found it earlier in the summer.

 

The best way I can describe it is by asking you to try imagining a Shock Top being a reel beer.

 

It's has an orange tint to it. The smell is definitely citrus. It's not too boozy at 6.5%. I could drink this in an extended drinking setting like a BBQ or tailgate on a hot day.

Just had a Harvest Shandy from Leinie. Surprisingly good. Liquid pumpkin pie in a beer.

 

I will wait until the leaves turn for something like that. Wait, I'm in S. California so I will have to at least wait until the temperatures drop into the mid-70s. It has been a brutal end to the summer here.

 

Below is the worst beer ever. I don't know how far east Trader Joe's goes, but they are known for having local or quirky stuff at a reasonable price. My GF went there and I asked her to get me a 22 bomber of something. I don't know what it is, but she has a knack for picking beers I will really like.

 

So she comes home with this Boatswain Double IPA; I've never heard of it, but it's right up my alley. I expect a citrus or piney hop bomb. This is swill, utter shite, as bad a beer as I have had in the last 5 years. This was not an IPA of any reasonable, forget a double, expression. Imagine Steel Reserve making what they call an IPA. This is it. I dumped at least half out. It was utterly undrinkable.

Effing filth, this was just gross.
