Recommended Posts

Hopes to be. These fine folks.

Took a road trip today to pick up a growler of..

Against The Grain 70K Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Milk Stout

 

Massive stout with aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla. Full-bodied with a rich and creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted grains, oaky bourbon, and vanilla. Smooth, malty finish with medium bitterness and some alcohol warming."

Aged in Angels Envy oak bourbon barrels.

13% abv

That pic makes a girl thirsty.

It certainly was a good glass. Next to last dose from a bottle of 2014. In my opinion, the best you can buy.

We hear the Jade Terminus is even better than both the Edouard and PF1901. Might have to order some soon. :devil:

 

Drinking: The sagebrush of the glaciers. :heart:

Do tell, greytail. There are only two reviews for the Terminus so far, and we'd like to know a bit more about it before coming up with the considerable coin needed for purchase and procurement.

 

Drinking: More absomphe. :devil:

It's good but I feel no where near as good as the edouard.

 

Then again edouard is my favorite in the jade line and I have been drinking them on and off since the first bottles were sold.

When in doubt, recidivism rules!

There is a ghost in our glass. We are trying to exorcise it with little sips. Now, we fear, we are being possessed by the spirit itself. :devil:

2) Double Jack by Firestone Walker

3) Sculpin or Grapefruit Sculpin by Ballast Point

4) Two Hearted Ale by Bells

5) Celebration Ale* by Sierra Nevada (*Winter Seasonal Only)

6) Centennial IPA by Founders

7) 60 Minute IPA by DogfishHead

8) Resin by Sixpoint

Knee Deep - Breaking Bud

Knee Deep - Lupulin River

Mother Earth - Boo Koo

Kern River - Just Outstanding

St. Archer - Mosaic IPA

El Segundo - Hammerland

Beachwoods - Melrose

Noble Ale Works - I Love It

Noble Ale Works - Tongue Tickles

Noble Ale Works - Citra Showers

Noble Ale Works - Mosaic Showers

Bottle Logic - Recursion

Belching Beaver - Great Lei Pina Colada IPA

Hyland Park - Bonkers

just to name a few

 

I just bought the new Stone - Thunderstruck IPA, ill report back

Personally, at this point, I like the Terminus better than all of the previous Jades. Before I would stick to 1901 and CF Berger but Ill be buying Terminus almost exclusively from now on as far as Jade goes. Maybe I need to go back and try them all again but I didnt like Eddie as much as the others, perhaps due to the higher alcohol content (not that I possess the most refined palate). To be fair, I only bought Eddie twice in my life so maybe the batch wasnt what it usually is. Something for me to think about. Anyway, just my 2 pennies

Belching Beaver

That's called a queef. :dead:

 

Jokes aside, us not tasting the Jade Terminus is like a child seeing an anorexic Santa Claus on Christmas. It's completely unacceptable. We'll be buying a few bottles of it in the near future. :cheerz:

Oskar Blue's Pinner is a nice session IPA (better than Founders All Day IPA). The Easy Jack by Firestone Walker is even better though. :cheerz:

 

A queef! HAHAHA, I believe you are correct.

 

As far as session ipas go, I have to mention that Stone's 'Go To' IS THE GREATEST SESSION IPA I HAVE EVER HAD BY FAR!!!!! One of the best beers they have ever bottled acutally, definitely as far as mass production. Anyway I had to put that out there. Karl Strauss' Mosaic Session is #2 in my book but definitely look for that Go To, the citrus notes they (Stone) have captured are beyond phenominal

A drop of Pierre Ferrand Reserve. Perhaps two drops. Then old-time radio (our Public Station runs old-time radio programs Saturday and Sunday nights - nostalgic for a geezer like me) then off to dreamland before the raccoons show up to dump over the bird bath. I seem to have drifted - unless I cop to drinking the water in the bird bath. Not a chance.
