- Lagunitas: Mozango:
was super happy with this on tap the other night...very crush-able

A 7.7% abv crushable DIPA, lol.

so this might blow your mind, but: it's true.  i crushed my first glass in like 3 takes.  sipped the second half of the bomber, only because i made a point of slowing down.  easily could have mainlined the whole thing.

So I enter my local beer store/watering hole inquiring about this Mozango creature.  Beer guy tells me they're out of bombers.  I say, But I spoke to someone a couple hours ago who said you had a case in stock.   Hmmmm, Oh, here it is, he says.  So i grabbed a couple and asked him what he thought of it as he shook his head and grimaced.  Too sweet, tastes artificial, he says.  Well, I'll be the judge of that. So I ordered the draft version and was immediately hit with a wonderfully fruity bouquet of fresh mangos.  The taste was smooth, carbonation low, head creamy with a somewhat dry piney finish.  Tasted all natural to me, though I was hesitant about the fruited IPA concept initially.  Very easy to drink, though IMHO, it would be a perfect release for the summer....strangely enough we seem to be in the minority,  the keg has lasted a WEEK.

What beer store? Maybe some people don't care for Lagunitas because it's not local and they're owned by Heineken.

Gotta say I found that Lagnunitas beer ya'll are hyping pretty turrible.

Also, sweet, what's the deal with you being the 3,000 mile away advocate for that turrible brewery 3 Stars? That hop fest looked just plain old weak. I could have a better hopfest out of my fridge.

cool, not everyone is going to like everything.  i just picked up 4 more bombers of Mozango last night.  it's been my main beer for the past month, along with Freemont Field to Ferment: Citra.

sorry there weren't enough whalez, brah ;D  i'm sure you're sitting on a better collection at home, but 99.9% of the population don't have that collection on hand.  for the price i would have been happy to check out the lineup below, but i'll agree that folks weren't getting on a plane for this one.  3 stars has a soft spot in my heart: i really liked some of their beers, and their support for the homebrewing community over the years has been awesome.

I just found the Mozango quite artificial tasting personally.

Re: HopFest #theThirstisReal, half the beers on that list aren't even hoppy and the ones that are that I've had are not that good. Anyway, it will be interesting to see the dent Other Half (a brewery that can actually make a good hoppy beer) puts into place like DC Brau, 3 Stars, and even Aslin.

well, the name of that "festival" was "Hop Funk Fest", so whatever wasn't hoppy was in fact sour/funky...

I had a couple of them (separate days) on draft. It's a real beast. My wife hated it.

The Ups and Downs of Beer and Marathons

 a reminder that training for a beer marathon is very different from training for a normal marathon. Essentially, youíre teaching your body to process alcohol differently than it would at rest.
