      Its good stuff, and as you continue to drink it seems to get better and better.
      4.5/5 IMO, solid offering from Jolly Pumpkin as usual.

      Ya, I love their beers. Definitely an occasional treat though at that price point.

      i enjoyed a lot of this a couple of weeks ago in jamaica. tastes a lot different than it does here. probably has something to do with being on a ship for long periods of time....

      I've had a half dozen or so Jolly Pumpkin beers so far and none of them have disappointed. I'm glad they're becoming more available out here these days.

      I had a Napa Smith Organic IPA last night and it was pretty good. I happen to think all their beers are pretty damn good. I'm sure my Don Barkley broner is showing, but he makes good stuff.

      I also tried one of the 6 Bridgeport IPA's I got in AZ a couple weeks ago last night and I thought it was terrible. Nearly undrinkable. Not sure what I'm going to do with the rest of my 6-pack. Maybe I can find some homebrew to blend it with.

      Had a DFH Red and White last night, I was really surprised by this beer, it was VERY enjoyable. I'll be getting more of this soon.

      i always see this when i visit a beer store, but never tried it. finally picked up a sixer of it. not a bad beer, and not over-the-top fruity, like some other beers. overall, pretty good.

      welcome to the layer cake

      Lucky U IPA in the can. It's pretty below average.

      You're right it is a "kind" of beer. A SHEIT kind.

      How does it compare to the Ommegang abbey dubbel, or the more legendary westmalle?

      I grabbed one of these at the store the other day as well. I got the Dubbel and it wasn't bad at all. I'm going to pick up the Quad when I go to that store again and see how that is.

      I love dark Belgian beers and oddly enough I had Gulden Draak for the first time recently. Really good as well. Not sure why had never tried it before...

      Hard day fellas, so i went to "stuffed sandwich" , a local joint in San Gabriel, CA. They have over 700 beers to choose from.

      Their sandwiches were unbelievably delicious with great pairings with the above selection. Highly reccomend this place for anyone.

      Has anyone in CA been able to find Jollly Pumpkin? I'm not sure if I have just been blind, but it doesn't found familiar and I'd like to try some.

      Best new beer for me as of late is Great Divide's Fresh Hop. I wasn't expecting much since I don't really like any of their other beers I've tried (Titan, Hercules):



      It's very, VERY smooth, and similar in taste to Rogue's Brutal IPA (another of my favorites).

      Speaking of Rogue, I tried their Morimoto Imperial Pilsner (yeah partially because of the cool bottle), and I HATED it. Sharp, acidic, and nasty. It made my teeth hurt. The only reason I finished the bottle is because I paid $17 for it. Yech.
