Agree about ice cold PBR on hot days... thanks Joshua Tree for getting me hooked on that...

Just cracked a Firestone Union Jack IPA from Pasa Robles, CA... after 220+ miles today, 2 hours at the beach, and a lot of family time... itís going down very nicely...

I think this may go down as the most viewed/replied to thread in the history of NEClimbs. Al, do you have any statistics to share?

Just popped one of these open and I am more than pleasantly surprised;

Victory Summer Love Ale, from Downingtown PA

http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/345/59987/

When I think summer ale I think light easy drinking beer but with a lack of hops. No so with this refreshing brew, the hops make their presence known but in a subtle way. Very nice hot weather beer with more flavor and mouthfeel than a very light ale.

Let's see 20 pages for this thread!

I am taking advantage of the cool down to 72F to enjoy a Pinot Noir with grilled salmon tonight.

I might stop by Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont, MA tomorrow to pick up some gems though.

This afternoon after golf,  I had a Deviant Dales bought at the store at the scenic vista in Intervale, NH--16 oz., 8% and very HOPPY.  Quite tasty but more than one might make you arrogant! 8)

If you can get your hands on a Boulevard Double Wide IPA it is worth the try.

Nice and hoppy, 8.5%, seems to get better the longer it is in a glass like a good wine!

John, you would think after all these years is that you could pour a decent pint.
What the hell kinda of head is that in the latest climbing mag?
Looks like a typical pint you get in a yank bar! :)

The Cellar in Belmont was not yet open when I went by yesterday.  Too bad :)
Lagunitas IPA can be had here for 10 or 11 bucks a six pack.  Pretty tasty.  Seems a touch off on consistency however; sometimes really good, others, just OK.  Trunked unrefrigerated?

Had some BBC Steel Rail X-pale last night after my ride at Wendell SF.  Haven't had it in years.  Forgot how good it is.

Climbing client just gave me a 4 pack of Dogfish 90 Minute Imperial IPA as part of my tip--9% and hoppy!  :) Much appreciated!
