The hop I hate is whatever is in any overhopped beer...I like balance and understand that other folks like carpet bombed palate crushers, which is what makes this hobby and the human sense of smell and taste so subjective.

I have always commented "no DMS" when judging (because I don't find it except in the rarest situations), but maybe it is superfluous for judging comments....
It's something you really don't need to mention unless a) it's there, or b) it's not unusual to find it in the style. So, if you're drinking some sort of light american lager or pre-prohibition pilsner and don't detect any, it would be appropriate to mention it.
Well, you might not feel so lucky after a some of my less successful homebrews .Just received a big box from Ynotbrusum! Five homebrews and eleven commercial beers (mostly 12 ounce bottles/cans). Jackpot!
Back at ya Jeff - all intact - 8 homebrews and 4 really nice commercials. Yea for Cigar City, Tampa Brewing and and Green Bench collaboration with Trinity - that last one looks pretty intriguing (almost as intriguing as the homebrews!)

Can't wait to start the sampling after I get back in town Tuesday!
Man do I feel lucky!
Seven homebrews actually. Some of the commercial brews I bought as growlers and carefully poured into bottles and recapped, so they look a lot like homebrews.

Just got home to find a box on my porch. I was like "what the hell did I order this time?"
But, no, I did not order anything late one night from Amazon. At least not this box.
I've got 5 bombers to check out. I'm going to pick one and chill it and sample it while the Cubs battle the Pirates. Perhaps the Way Heavy.
I'll be filling that box up and sending it back to Louisiana.
