For one of the coldest nights in the year - Last year's solstice d'hiver. This beer's better with a bit of age on it. Still a little rough but the malts are coming together more. Starting to remind me a little of Thomas Hardy. Considering that it was brewed in July 2011, still quite hoppy.

I made it to the Rhino last night for the first time. Had a fantastic pint of cask Smashbomb. It was so good I picked up six more bottles on my way home.

i think that cask was the double-dry hopped smashbomb, and yeah - it's pretty good.

First beer in Columbus, OH:
A fresh Bell's HopSlam that's completely shredding my palate to pieces. Hope I can taste whatever comes after this! :lol:

Does it smell like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree?

Just back from Streets house with boney, Cale and Mel:

Had a
Firestone Walker Sucaba
Kissmeyer Red IPA
Firestone Walker Parabola
Firestone Walker XVI
Russian River Consecration
and having a Garrison Grand Baltic Porter at home, first Firestones I ever had, the Sucaba and Parabola were incredible but the layers in the XVI blew me away. Not many beers come with a sheet detailing the percentages of beers used in the blend. I`m sure there were a few more had after I had to duck out, thanks for some awesome beers!
