Over 30 days without a beer post ?? I'll fix that.
Just picked up a sixer of Lagunitas Undercover Investigation Shut-Down.
It just appeared at Canal's in Berlin.
One of the three best ales I have ever had in my long and tempestuous beer drinking career.
I would rank it number 2 behind a Dogfishhead 120 and a tie with Stoudt's Double IPA.
9.9% alcohol. Slightly sweet, dark, earthy and delicious.
Try anything from Lagunitas and you will not be disappointed.
If you are, send me all of the leftovers.
Lagunitas Undercover Investigation Shut-Down definetly floats towards the top of my list, too. Had it last year, and have been waiting patiently for this year's release. I have to make it out to Berlin soon. Scott, you are fortunate to have near your home one of the best liquor stores (as far as beer goes) in South Jersey.
Coney Island Blockhead Tough as Nails Lager from Schmaltz Brewing. This is an incredibly delicious beer. http://www.shmaltzbrewing.com/CONEY/hb.html Part of their Coney Island series. 10% ABV sweet, tart, dry with almost a cotton candy finish from the high alcohol. Yum!!
