I'm loving this year's vintage. I liked the 2013 best in the vertical, by the recipe has definitely changed, so it's a bit unfair to compare

2013>2016>2015>2014, in my opinion, though no one agreed with me...

Catching up from a weekend out of service in Pinnacles NP. Glorious vertical tasting, with only one agreement. 2013 vintage rules them all!

A bit hot and solventy. Other than that, a familiar BCBS sort of flavor, ha ha. Devil's Teeth tastes better side by side. Bourbon County Black Friday (2016) Earned the Bourbon County Black Friday (2016) badge!

Almond shines nicely in this smooth sipping version. Little bit bitter, little bit sweet. Good piff.

Proper Brewing Co by Hop Vs. Hop (Release #4)

Tran's Son is drinking a Hop Vs. Hop (Release #4) by Proper Brewing Co

(Wai-iti vs. Rakau) Not very exciting. I think the concept of pitting one hop against another seems questionable. Malty, nutty, and sweet.

Wicked Weed Brewing by Oblivion

Mmm, thanks Jackson! Great sourness, acidity, and clean fruit flavor. Just needs a little more oak!
