What do people think of Brooklyn Lager?  I had it at a restaurant once and thought it was OK but not great.

Is it because it's Canadian?

Black Bear brewery up in Orono is making some damn good brew....the product could easily hang with my beloved PNW favorites.

Not a fan, and I would not call it hoppy any more than I would call Sam Adams Boston Lager “hoppy”. But I am a hop-head to be sure...

My local store has Laguita’s IPA now... YUM.

Recently purchased a six pack of porkslap pale ale.   What a pleasant surprise, quite good! I have only seen it at trader joe's in Portland Me, and will get some more the next time i am down that way.

Porkslap is good stuff... trying Baxter Brewing IPA tonight... very good in the can.... FYI there is a semi-new beer store in Fryeburg that has a huge selection. “The Good Beer Store, INC”.... been open since April and has tastings.... you can find em’ on Facebook.

Lagunitas is very good. I just finished up some Deschutes Inversion, good layered flavors.

New Belgium is starting a huge canning operation as result of the agreement with Coors. Stuff should be all over soon.

Maybe I got a 'bad' six-pack of Lagunitas IPA.  Just finished one and I was not impressed.  Tasted OK, good without overpowering hops, but I found it lacking in both body and finish (sorry, wine speak).  I like Ipswich IPA and Sierra Nevada Torpedo better.

Where did you get your mitts on that Deschutes Inversion? What I wouldn't do for a couple pints of Bend Brewing Co.'s Hop Head.....I'm drinking left over Yellow Tail merlot from my wedding  :'(

Gotta agree it isn’t the best IPA out there... Dogfish 60 minute is probably better for the price, and the 90/120 minute is A++

body and finish are both appropriate beer terms.

sounds like you got old beer.

Thanks, Benny.  I will give it another try; another 6-pack from a different store.

Just cracked open a “Snapperhead IPA, Farmhouse Ale” brewed and canned by Butternuts Beer & Ale.... real interesting aroma to it...

Hey Dave,

Have you ever had Stiegel, it is from Salzberg.  Smoothest beer I have ever had.  And if you ever see Hopcircle by Philip's Brewing, it could be the best IPA I have ever had.
