Dogfish's 120 being available in 4-packs was news to me, but I still had to double-take when I saw this price tag yesterday:

It makes sense since single bottles go for $10 a pop, but still.

It's amazing that Rogue still gets away with charging $$ for their average-at-best stuff.

I can't even remember the last time I've seen anything from Rogue on the shelves.

Equilibrium added some lactose to one of their commonly released DIPAs (whose non-lactose version typically lasts for a week or more at the brewery) and had a brewer from Other Half come to help with the lactose addition (hence making it a collaboration).

350 people were on line at 7:30AM, in a mostly middle-of-nowhere place about a two hour drive from Manhattan. can sales don't start until 11:30AM.

Not a fan of lactose in IPAs. People are stupid.

I don’t mean this in a snarky, shitty way but I really don’t understand the appeal of a beer poured with no head.

Absolutely. I tried one of Trillium’s “creamsicle” Permutation IPAs recently and couldn’t even finish it. What is the fascination.

cans of it are available at tons of places here, but it just sits because it's really pricey, probably old, and isn't as good as it once was, especially compared to nearby breweries like HVB and Equilibrium.

Super Session is very solid at its $10/6-pack price, however, and i usually grab it when it's fresh. $5 per can for SOS though is dumb.

FWIW, Sip has always been brewed at Two Roads, even when it was in bottles and only available in Vermont. I agree that it's not worth the high price anymore though.

May be palate fatigue (from all the NEIPAs) or batch variance... I just remember it tasting so much crisper and citrus-forward than the cans I've had recently.

got to try Moksa's Pineapple Superfuzz (hazy IPA) and Angry Grandpa (west coast IPA) yesterday, they are making some really nice beer! My expectations were not high but I was happy to have them exceeded

Everything at Casa Agria was fantastic. Really wish I lived closer or had a car so I could drink stuff from them more often.

turns out this found beer isn't good!

why would you make a tart cherry thing that isn't a gose? this just tastes like robitussen. perrin does some good brews but brother this ain't the way.

Heading home from Sour Friends Fest at Cellador. Almost everything I had was fantastic, but man, five hours of sours and I kinda feel like dying.

Did a 4-way blind taste test of 3 national and 1 local American pilsners tonight. My gf's dad and I did the tasting

These beers:

-Firestone Pivo
-Founders PC
-Victory Prima
-Smog City Little Bo

I liked the Prima best, Pivo second, PC third, Little Bo fourth. He liked the Pivo best, then Little Bo, PC, and Prima.

Overall I felt like the Pivo was maltiest and most balanced, but I liked the refreshing crispness of the Prima. Really illuminating taste test and crazy how different four beers of the same style can be.

Last time I had a prima i felt like it was super over the hill. Just figured by the time a prima sixer moves on a shelf in LA it is pretty old and probably has been stored warm at one or two points along the way. Nothing like what I remember that beer to be 8 years ago when I lived on the east coast. But maybe my taste in pilsners has just changed and I didn't like it as much now as I remember.

I would have suspected pivo to be the most hoppy of those, not the most malty and balanced.

Now i want to do a similar thing.

it would be kind of fun if we picked four nationally available beers of the same style and blind taste tested them the same week or something and gave them a hipinion QBT ranking.

Has Eddie PIls been talked about in this thread? Because I love Eddie Pils.

I've had way too many awesome beers lately due to LA Beer Week, I'm in dire need of a break.
