Now Drinking: New Oberpfalz' Imperial Rye IPA
Even though my store just got this in, it tastes like it's 4-6 months old already. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt considering they're a new brewery and looks like they just started bottling.
Now Drinking: 4 Hands' TIki (Milk Stout w/ chocolate, coffee, and coconut)
Pretty tasty. Too bad no one else is joining in. Oh well...
/ck/ has better beer threads bro
Flower Power is my shit when it's got a good date on it.
It falls off hard after like 30 days like most IPAs. Date is always clearly printed on the neck, first 2 digits are last 2 digits of the year. The second 4 numbers are month and day.
Hm...interesting. I wonder how many breweries who only bottle will finally can some of their IPAs/related within the next year or two. Would be wise on their part to invest on that sort of thing.
Glad that Pipeworks started canning last year. Will be picking up at least a case of Ninja vs. Unicorn when I go up there in a week. Excellent Imp IPA right there, if you haven't had it before.
Indeed. However, have you had Heady Topper? Been forever since I last had it, so I haven't been able to do a side-by-side. But, I know they print on the can to drink straight from the can, which is ludicrous considering smell comprises a large sum of what you taste.
