    ibbjamin commented on HEISCHMAN's blog entry: Yes this sure is one hoppy wheat beer - which for me is perfect as the flavor of wheat in beer is a huge turnoff for me. This one is probably my favorite summer refresher and with it coming in under 6%, you can drink them most of the afternoon. I actu...  more

    ibbjamin Virtual Craft Beer Tasting Club: I'm down.  My favs are IPAs, DIPAs, German Pils or Lagers, Belgian Strong Dark Ales, Quadrupels or Sours.  But, I am game for anything!

      Mark Noted. Looks like we are leaning towards hops and cans starting out but we can surely do all you mentioned. I'd love to do a sour tasting.

      ibbjamin sweet sounds good to me. So are we looking for someone to pick the first one or how does that work? I'm thinking Dale's Pale Ale or Hop Ottin' IPA would be a good start...

    • ibbjamin
      Mark I think we still need a few days to see who wants in. Then we can pick. We may need to make the tasting broader so people from all over can find something to taste.

    KajII: Peltier. Your comments made be do my research and I have to say you were right. Skunked Beer only comes from being "Light Struck". What they call a beer that has been allowed to get to warm is Spoiled beer. Below are the process of what causes each. Thanx...  more
