Love this beer. Cool brewpub in GR if you haven't been - it's in an old church with stained glass windows. And they have duck nachos.
Almanac Sangriaveza - lots of these sour beers taste like something in their own class, not really like a beer.
Kern River Brewing Class V Stout - oatmeal, imperial, and milk stout all in one. They also make a Class X version of this which is bourbon barrel aged.
Twisted X Brewing Later Days Session IPA

I'm usually not a big IPA guy but this one hit the spot on a 102 degree afternoon.
Last night I did a 2017 KBS and Firestone Parabola side by side. KBS was more cocoa dominated, less bourbon, and Parabola was more bourbon and a little more complex, but I wouldn't choose one over the other.
Last night at a friends wedding:

Hill Farmstead Arthur
Grimm Super Going
TO OL Goliat Imperial Stout with Coffee
Felt very brave and tried a Rodenbach Grand Cru.

Very different and interesting style of beer. It is a blend of 1/3 freshly brewed with 2/3 of 2 year aged beer in oak.

What you get is an initial wild, lively, fruity attack on your taste buds followed by some deeper notes. Very rich and multi layered. I just can't get over the nuances of vinegar which poke through. Otherwise - great.

That's a handful of hoppiness right there. Did you prefer one over the others?

Had it on tap for lunch Saturday. Greatness.
I've not had it from tap, but it's greatness out of the bottle for sure.
