Yesterday at Mad Mex Oakland and Sharp Edge Creekhouse:
Ithaca Partly Sunny (draught)
- excellent thirst quencher after walking (climbing?) around the university area
Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale (draught)
- just as bright, citric, and fresh-tasting as I remember
The Duck-Rabbit ESB (draught)
- very English in character with the hops adding a crisp spiciness and some dryness but not much else
Flying Dog El Dorado Single Hop IIPA (bottle)
- good balanced DIPA
The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout (bottle)
- layers of roasted, liquorice, leather, and ashy flavours with only a hint of sweetness. A world beater.

Do these guys make great stuff in general? I keep seeing their beers down here in Pittsburgh but haven't tried one yet since I don't know anything about them and haven't heard much either. I'll keep an eye out for the Dragontooth but I'm curious to know if their other beers are worth seeking out.
