Black Oak Ten Bitter Years. It has been quite some time since I previously tried this. An exceptional DIPA.

Wow, 10 Bitter Years! I must come back to that.

Having a 500ml bottle of Stone City Party Bus Pale Ale from the brewery. Excellent! This is kind of a Vermont presentation but a definite refined citrus aroma and flavour. Really perfect medium palate, drinkable and very satisfying. Perfect beer.

I will get more tomorrow. Honestly way better than the still-decent 4th Anniversary IPA I had On tap there on Thursday (they have 750mls too), and the Raspberry-infused Bianca Sour Saison they also have on tap/750ml was good but really not all that distinctive from say Amsterdam Framboise. Those 750s are 12 bucks! The Party Bus is around 5.50.

* edit * also sampled the SCA 500 ml bottles of:
Darling Small Brett Ale (Saison) and the
Collusion Belgian Pilsner (collab with Tooth and Nail.)

Totally impressed at these three 500ml bottled offerings, all reasonably priced if not cheap.

Lagunitas 12th Of Never Pale Ale. It’s OK, but honestly underwhelming when compared to the other outstanding PA’s, IPA’s, and DIPA’s I’ve had from this brewery.

from the LCBO? I think the brew date was 8+ months ago unless a new batch came in.

Yes, online order from the LCBO. Can is out in the garage, as are the unopened ones in the fridge there. Didn’t check the date (duh) but will when I go out tomorrow.
