Driftwood Twenty Pounder IIPA
Westvleteren 12

And yes, I saved 2oz of each and did try mixing them near the end. Not bad but the hops blew out all the layers of the Westy 12.

Seriously, I give up. Post whatever you want. Maybe I'm being fogeyish in thinking it's a little ignorant to dismiss the numerous insights of other BarTowelers that have already been posted on a given topic.

Driftwood Twenty Pounder It was so nice walking into several liquor stores in BC and not seeing the huge divide of available beers between there and where I live now. Last time I was in Van I was overwhelmed and wanted to buy everything....now I could, and was more choosey. Is it just me or is the ...

The amazing Driftwood Twenty Pounder IIPA. Imagine, if you can, Red Racer IPA doubled in citrus hop intensity. Unreal. I actually decided to cut the beer it was so hop potent. Now drinking half a bomber of 20lb'er with a full can of Mt.Begbie Country Kolsch. Wow, really nice hybrid. The beer is give...

I'm not against new threads but sometimes newbies can glean some useful information by searching old threads and reviving them...which was the underlying point. And yes, the search function does suck. But if you do single keyword searches or use the modifiers like AND, OR then you'll get more specif...

You really should search for old topics before posting a new thread on a question that has been asked again and again...

Here's an even older discussion;
