I have never tried it but saw it at my beer store the other day. Will pick it up next time I'm in there.

I'm not a fan of session IPAs in general... but I do agree that when you see one on a menu listed as a session IPA there is no doubt in my mind exactly what it is. Would you rather they called it a pale ale? I would be surprised if I ordered a pale ale with that much hop juice. What label would you want on it if not session IPA. There used to be a time when double IPA wasn't a style either.... Gotta evolve with the times. If you hear a name and know exactly what to expect then it's doing it's job as far as I'm concerned.
I saw it and while the special effects and 3-D were cool, that was about it, as a whole I thought the movie sucked and was not worth the price of admission, but the dinner we went out for afterwards was awesome!
If you can see a matinee at a discounted price I'd do that;)
The local grocery store has it on sale for $12.99/twelve pack. I picked up four and a couple of pounds of ahi poke. It is pau hana aloha Friday after all!Man, I gotta say I envy your backdrop. I spent the first year and a half of my life in Honolulu while my Dad was in the Air Force, and of course have no memory of it. Cruel irony !! I'm definitely going back some day.
A freind of mine, who also happens to be the engineering manager at Dogfish, and a member of my homebrew club has a Randall. I've had beer infused with some gourmet coffe beans through the Randall that was really nice. It's pretty neat watching the beer travel through it. I'd love to have one. On the expensive side, but very cool.
Sorry I only had hops in a randall before. It usually changes the beer...and I feel oftentimes for the better. I have no doubt you could put plenty of things in it to make your beer terrible.... Just as you can put plenty of things in the beer itself during the process of making it to make it terrible... It's just another tool.
Can anyone explain why I would spend $288.00 on a Randall to infuse my beers with stuff (made of plastic, nonetheless) when I could buy the multipurpose Blichmann HopRocket (made of stainless) for $125?
That is, in this theoretical world where I need to spend more money on this hobby.
