Re: Pine

More thanks to y'all. Interesting that the Fat Tug description on the Driftwood web site does not mention pine: Brewed with the hop aficionado in mind, Fat Tug is a Northwest-style India Pale Ale with an intense hop profile featuring notes of grapefruit, mango, melon and passionfruit. Sufficient ma...

Re: Surprisingly good beer from TBS

St Ambroise Pale Ale (with the gold label) was one of my first beer loves that helped get me away from macros as it had a unique taste - nothing at all like the pale ales we have today.

To his credit he's got a lot of breweries participating this year and releasing tripels specfically for the occasion.
