    I have fond memories of their "Sisters of the Moon IPA," but that's been a few years and I'm an admitted IPA shill.
    Repartee is something we think of twenty-four hours too late.

    Nephews went this summer. Said it was pretty good. Bring me back some Coco Loco from NODA if you can. Also have serious brewery news for you after you get back.

    Oh, no. Not again. Please don't tell us you're buying a share in another brewery .

    Fuse - fast pass not worth it if you go on a weekday. If you plan on going on Saturday or Sunday, that may be another story. The new coaster was as good as advertised.

    Rick ...spill the beans on the brewery news. I'm off tomorrow if you want to discuss over a beer instead.

    Pineapple Sculpin-Ballast Point Brewing

    They took one of the consistently highly rated IPAs in the US, Sculpin, and added pineapple to it as "one of many small batch cask experiments." This one didn't fail but I certainly like the original better and even thought the Grapefruit Sculpin was better. Pretty similar orange-yellow hue with a nose of citrus and tastes of stone fruits, grapefruit and a mild, pineapple juicy finish. Stats are identical to Sculpin at 70 IBUs and 7% ABV. Glad I decided against the whole 6er for $15 but happy to have spent $2.80 for the 12 ounce single to try it. It'd pair nicely with some grilled fish and a fruity-spicy salsa.

    Napoleon Complex-Wicked Weed Brewing

    This hoppy pale ale would put a lot of IPAs to shame. Pour was a straw-yellow color with a modest head and tropical and citrus scents and tastes of peaches, nectarines, mangoes and papayas. Couldn't find the IBU # anywhere but I'd guess 50 and the ABV is 5.2%, making this highly crushable. Shrimp scampi or a seafood au gratin would make delectable entrees to accompany this outstanding pale ale. I think the 6er was $10.49 so I've got a few to share/trade.

    This has been a go to pale ale for me this summer. Very good stuff!

    Going to ATL for a few days and then will probably need another week to verify. We don't post rumors, as you know, on DBR. Right? I will tell all when something happens.

    Relax and have a few beers. When things get a bit more settled and more is known, I let you know. Just be patient. I have to separate the facts from speculation first. Visiting Innovation today on the way to Atlanta will help me to do that.😊

    Boulevard Lemon Ginger Radler

    I know this was reviewed recently up-thread, but am enjoying while on vaca on Emerald Island. The lemon and ginger are apparent, very easy-drinking (oh, oh) and refreshing. From ratebeer:

    I'm at Innovation now having their cucumbermint saison. Excellent. Wanted to bring dd and fuse some of their lavender honey saison, as they are now bottling! Unfortunately, it won't be so good by the time I make my first delivery to Durham. Mattman will benefit from our trip here, however. Now, if MD will chime in here in time, I will include him in my local delivery.

    This sounds amazing.
    Forget the HyperLoop for people, we need a HyperLoop for beer.
