    Don't forget for you guys traveling back to the valley on Friday, Moonraker is having a couple cans released. Electric Lettuce, and some other IPA I forgot, but would be a nice reason to stop by.

    But if you can only do one, Moonraker > New Glory.

    Okay I'm pretty hyped now:

    Maple Vanilla should be fucking awesome. Last year the Maple was the best one (though I didn't go to the party so I'm not 100% sure I had them all...)

    I've known about these for a few weeks now and it's been really fucking hard keeping my mouth shut. Fuck, tomorrow is going to be expensive.

    Any thoughts on the party bottles or the Salted Caramel bottle?

    I didn't try the tequilla (party bottle) at the party, but heard from other's it was good. Salted Caramel was a hot mess for me. Too salty, almost like a gose. No way I would spend $31+tax on it.

    Tequila was awesome, I normally hate tequila-barrel things but it was by far the best of any I've had. It was up there with my favorite variants at the party (and no, I'm not planning on trading my bottle, so I'm not just pumping it up).

    I thought Salted Caramel was fine, bought a couple because it was interesting. My favorites, all basically tied so no particular order, were:

    -Joseph Magnus
    -EC 12
    -Maple
    -Maple Vanilla
    -Tequila

    I didn't like the Maple Coffee as much as the others, I think mostly because I don't drink coffee and prefer it to be more subtle in beers, both Maple Coffee and regular Coffee were pretty heavy on the coffee.

    I was not a fan at ALL of maple-coffee or the straight up coffee. The coffee flavor was astringent and harsh. Was really disappointed and glad I didnt buy any from futures. Maple-vanilla was fantastic as was the straight vanilla. The straight vanilla was much more balanced this year. Willet and EC12 were my favorite of the single barrels with Apple Brandy close behind. The rye blend was also great if you are a fan of rye.

    I really enjoyed doing a maple-vanilla and raspberry cuvee. Tasted effing amazing.
