I typically go for IPAs, but for my money, nothing beats Corsendonk Brown
I absolutely love the brown (Pater). Fantastic beer.
I picked up a case of Fat Head's Head Hunter IPA over the weekend. Fabulous....
Definitely a great beer. Not crazy about their other offerings, though.
I'm back. After the sanctions, I just had to go away for a bit...
What did you think?
Also wanted to throw out there that a friend of mine gave me a couple of bottles of Sam Adam's Whitewater IPA. I think "Wheat IPA" is about to be the next "fad", just like "Black IPA" was a year or so ago. But, unlike Black IPA (which I thought was ok, but REALLY didn't understand what all the fuss was about), I'm really diggin' a few of these, particularly this one from Sam. But, just a word of warning, I've never poured a made-in-America beer that had more sediment in the bottle than this one. So if that creeps you out, pour gently.

An English IPA on Steroids (and a Fitz workout routine ), with a massive amount of pine-cone bitterness, IMO... a deviation from Stone's typical west-coast style floral & citrus explosion. I enjoyed it, just different from pretty much anything else I've had from Stone.
The difference between Ruination 10th Anniversary and regular Ruination reminded me a lot of the difference between Three Floyd's Dreadnaught and Arctic Panzer.

Hey Kinger....if you like a Scottish Ale of sorts, try Pike's Tilted Kilt. Quite refreshing to me on occasion.
If you want something a bit different, try Dogfish Head Brown IPA. Dry hopped and just plain different, but good. FWIW, I'm not a huge fan of Dogfish Head.
If a fan of Trappist style ales, I recommend Summit Brewing Company Belgian-Style Abbey Ale

Drinking "chili pepper spicy ale" right now. Anyone ever had it? Tastes like liquid peppers, I'm loving it.
Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale
Bull Ice. You can buy 40's of it at Jacks Six Pack on North Atherton.
Here is a review from schlitzmaltliquor.com
"I let this one chill in the fridge for 2 hours before crackin it open. This brew I got must have been years old cause it had some particles floating around inside the bottle. Anyways, I cracked it open, took a swill and thought to myself that it tasted like pure shit. It wasn't easy going down, and made me feel really full, I wouldn't drink this fucker again, I only drank it for the review..it gets a 7/10 swills for giving a decent buzz"
Pure college heaven.

Review couldn't be more accurate. In my PSU days we bought this stuff all the time. Wow i didn't know this stuff was still around.
It was our drink of choice for pre-gaming. We would say, "you mess with the bull you get the horns". ' Drink two of those 40's before you go out, and you're probably not going out. I still grab one whenever I'm in town for old times sake.
Ours was similar - "take the bull by the horns". We always bought these to pre-game with before hitting up the parties. There was a place near where College & Atherton intersect that we always bought these from. I may have to scour the area for old times sake on one of my seven drives up there this fall.
Lat night I had a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. I'd give it a B...
It poured like a commercial out of the nitro can. Perfect head on a dark, creamy liquid. It smelled more chocolaty than it tasted; I think they should have labeled it Kinda Chocolate Stout or Single Chocolate Stout. Anyway, I drank half before and half after the meal, since the sweetness made it more like a dessert. Hints of coffee and the weight is close to a Guinness.
Had two IPAs from a relatively new brewery in the Pittsburgh area called "Helltown" this week.
"Rapture" and "Idle Hands". Liked both, particularly Idle Hands. They run a shade sweeter than I prefer my IPA to lean, but still had some bitterness present on the back end, so it wasn't way outta wack, and lots of hopping late in the process gave it a great nose.
Still intent on finding some Selin's Grove offerings, but since they don't yet bottle, it's hard to come by on the Western side of the state...
Kinger- where's the Helltown brewery located?
Nobody has tried anything from The Olde Mecklenberg Brewery out of Charlotte, NC?
Oh man. That did not come out well the other way...
I have tried it at festivals but never been to the brewery. They are German purists as far as brewing goes so you aren't going to see anything too adventurous but solid clean lagers. I wouldn't go out of your way to find it, but I did enjoy their Alt (which was a very nice representative of the style).
I have always thought that the Young's 2X Chocolate was way overrated. First of all it doesn't remotely taste like chocolate. There are hundreds of American stouts that are much better than this old UK clunker. Buy American.
