    My house smells like hops and there was a beer-splosion in my basement last night. My fermenter blew up. Hopefully the tragedy was averted by dumping it into a larger fermenter.

    Anyways, some recent cheers and jeers....

    Goat's Breath Bock. Surprisingly good! Very malty. A little sweetness. I liked it. It wasn't spectacular but it wasn't bad at all.

    Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. This is THE STUFF OF LEGEND. Man, this beer is amazing. Lots of hops, very citrusy and very sweet. Significantly sweeter than the 60 Minute. It is incredibly interesting. Easily, one of my favorites.

    Well's Banana Bread Beer. Abysmal...I couldn't even finish the half the bottle. I try to give anything at least a bottle to impress me. It was so bad I had to stop. If you could bottle up pure fail, it would taste just like this.

    Kerry just reminded me that a few weeks before you started this thread, she had picked me up a bottle of that Banana Bread beer....and I ended up pouring 2/3rds of it down the sink. I rarely-to-never pitch booze, so it is by far a horrible substance.

    I saw that at Sam's a few weeks back and passed on it. I think that was probably a good thing.
