    If this is the new formula, I can definitely get with it.

    Note on the pint glass- that is where they shoot Luke Cage's bar scenes in the Jessica Jones series on Netflix.
    I salivate like Pavlov's dog every time it comes up.

    How was this? I picked up a 4 pack at the Boonton liquor outlet last week and it was basically undrinkable. Color looked good but was super skunked. Was canned 10/30, not sure if you have a fresher batch there.

    It was good, not dank enough for my liking yet plenty of flavor. Very floral tasting, my gf said she tasted dirty socks at the end of it.

    I have a buddy who would probably follow Tired Hands into hell. He loves everything they make. He was telling me yesterday, though, that beers like this one and their Milkshake IPAs might not be available for a while soon because the price of vanilla beans has gone through the roof in the wake of cyclones in Madagascar. Same goes for Adam's Stout by Liquid Hero.

    So if anyone is sitting on any rare or high end beers that are using vanilla flavoring, it might be a good idea to hang on to it for a month or so and then see what you can get in trade for a few cans or bottles!

    Interesting tip. Personally, I've been passing on the beers described as vanilla and frosted flakes, in spite of the hype.

    It probably wasn't fair, but I had this Mad Fat! Fluid after a glass of the Troon/Conclave colab. It tasted kind of 2 dimensional in comparison. Still a solid 3.9

    Stopped in at Magnify Brewing for a beer. The current release of Floccular Migraine, was super tasty, but a bit much at 10% abv.

    I discovered a bit of sad news last night. We have a regular Tuesday Night Ride up in Greenlane and afterward we stop into the tavern right on the edge of the park for a round. The ride was cancelled this week for weather (which was fine with me since I was sick anyway) so after doing my own ride last night, I figured post-ride libation is a necessary weekly tradition that must be upheld in spite of the weather or illness so I planned to swing by Iron Hill for a round. Iron Hill was insanely crowded, so undaunted, I drove up the road to hit Prism instead. But pulling into the lot, the place was dark and a sign on the door told me that they're out of business. And as I understand it, it's not just the brewpub - they've shut down production altogether (if I'm wrong about that, someone please let me know!) That's a shame. They made a few decent beers. And they were a key stop on my annual solstice beer tour. RIP, Prism ...
