I will shoot this bottle and add the label to our library. 

I have just consumed the Sweetwater "Johnny HA$H", Double IPA  (IMO) a monster hopped beer I like that style. 

I might have other comments later.   

Have you tried it ?

I have had 2 now. Very tasty!

And, I went to see Mom in Myrtle Beach last week. In the back of her cooler I found a Zima! It expired in Aug 2008. And you can still buy them! If you go to Japan where they are still made and selling like hot cakes....

Or Here. Party on...

Terrapin Rye Cubed.
I do not know if I could afford this to be another "session beer" for me. It was great thirst quencher after a sweltering shift at the sugarcane field though! If you like Rye, and a nice bite on the palate, this beer could be for you. I enjoyed it none the less right out of my 34 dg cooler...

The Side Project "Guano Loco" from Terrapin is Bat Sh*t crazy!!

"Chocolaty sweetness melds brilliantly with spicy heat to make this beer a fiesta in your glass"

I must find another while there are still some to be had!

Been on a tear since Lincoln Fill House and Home Brew opened 2 miles of the street...


https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lincoln-Fill-Station-Home-Brew/274273192750032

It is worth the trip.. 

I'll make a list of the ones I've tried or brought back a growler.

Tonight is an amazing lager..   

Breaking Bob's Kölsch (beer)

This one is brewed at our local Wrecking Bar..  Bob and this beer are really good.. I could like this as a summer beer.

Mike,
While you were at the "Lincoln" today, I was at B&B Hobby! I missed you by litterally 8 minutes! Dang!!
Mark Broe from Yes Face finally got the Peach ESB going, pretty tasty for a 4.5 % alc. A new session beer perhaps!? And this place could be trouble.... after all it is on the way home (sorta) if I miss my first turn! Ha!
These folks did a great job rehabing the old Blimpie,they have great background music and there is not much that goes better with a great beer lineup than a good cigar! Gotta hope that there is enough interest in the home brew supplies and while I was there somebody mentioned to Mark and Tiny about a craft beer that might be steeped with a cigar like flavor. Much like the Smoke Stack Series of beers but I digress!
a growler store, samples of some great beers and a nice selection of beers for sale out of the can/bottle. And how about the Bells Two Hearted Ale in the can!
All of you folks who are OTP and in the area of Snellville, aww what the heck, the Lincoln Fill Station deserves a visit!
IMHO.
and, my commercial is over......

Two things.   One is a suggestion from Lincoln Fill Station and the other is a "put back" bottle of Ballast Point "Big Eye"  from San Diego.

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. Not a Bells, but the Bells Two Hearted Ale is next in the rotation.

Over the last several years 92 percent of the beer I think while here in GA has been from GA breweries. But that Bell's Two Hearted has been calling my name the last few times I've gone to Hooligans for Team Trivia. Damn good domestic stuff Angry Robert.

Lincoln Fill Station has my attention.. 


Humbolt Nectar, in a small growler...   

Delicious but with a "taste" of honey that I'm not sure of.

Bob, they said I missed you by minutes again.  One of these days we will be there at the same time.

 I bet two of my beers would be in your spectrum.

Try a"Heavy Seas, "Loose Cannon"

Loose Cannon

Our flagship beer, Loose Cannon wins people over at first smell. The carefully cultivated interplay of Simcoe, Palisade, and Centennial creates a most fragrant IPA—its nose bursts with notes of grapefruit, herbs, and pine. Bitterness is somewhat subdued by the floral quality that pervades the taste. The color is burnished gold, and the mouthfeel is creamy. A strong malt backbone balances out the triple-hopped beer. Its nickname, Hop3, comes from the brewing process: our brewers hop Loose Cannon in the boil, the hopback, and the fermenter. It won a second place CAMRA award at the 2010 Great British Beer Festival.

MwS>- Or a Night in Brussels by 3 Tavern beer here in Decatur.  Great Belgian replica, deep flavor

A Night in Brussels IPA
A Belgian-Style American IPA

A Night in Brussels is a Belgian-style American IPA with malts from Belgium, a blend of American hops, pure cane sugar in the best southern tradition, and an authentic Belgian yeast strain. A pleasing marriage of old- and new-world beer cultures, this unique ale is best understood as an American IPA on a Belgian road trip.

ABV: 7.5% | Bitterness: 69 IBUs
Glassware recommendation: Abbey Goblet

That's the one that looks like grapefruit juice? I had one from Bell's that was. It was one of my more interesting beer experiences of 20 and 14.
