    Too many choices...


    I totally forgot it was Hopslam season until I saw it at the store the other day.  That stuff used to be impossible to find but there seems to be plenty out there this year.  How was this year's batch?
    It used to sit on shelves pre 2010.
    Hopslam is overrated. Like many “must have” beers.

    We’re about to get dumped on with snow tonight. Sounds like a perfect evening for an IPA or six.

    It's
     lovely. A really great hazy, hoppy pale. Now moved on to this monster from cloudwater which is also delicious.

    Absolutely.  Perhaps a stout as well.  Have a vanilla big hugs from Half Acre that I've been waiting to drink.

    The coffee Big Hugs was outstanding! One of the best stouts I’ve had recently. Enjoy!

    It’s a stout kind of night.


  • WobbieWobbie Posts: 24,691

    NA IPA... it actually tastes pretty good. And before anyone makes fun, a buddy of mine has cancer and cannot consume alcohol. He found this brewery doing NA craft beer, which no one is doing and thought he’d give it a try. I was honestly surprised. It’s a little fizzier and not as bitter (which I’m fine with) but otherwise tastes like IPA.
    that’s cool...funny,tho...when I was going thru massive chemo, I could hardly stomach anything..,anything other than coffee and beer.

    I think Frank Zappa once referred to coffee and cigarettes as “food.”

    good of luck to your pal!

    Nice! How's the brew? I like: the Cubs, mosaic, IBU's and hops. Not as big on dry or double IPA.

    Would still give it a whirl.
    It was a good brew...not great. I just thought the story on the can was cool for any Cubs fans. I wouldn’t buy the beer again though. 
    bad beer; “cool story.” seems fitting :wink:

    Helped a buddy move stuff out of his basement today. Had a cold one when the job was done. Good beer and very smooth for 9.7%.
