Picked up a sampler case of bombers from  Pretty steep price-wise but the only chance I'll have to try the beers from this brewery anytime soon.  So I treated myself.

Evil Twin – Their website lists it as “blood red” in color.  I’d call it more of an opaque dark brown.  High hop bitterness and roasty malt flavor.  This one is a little high on the tongue stripping bitterness for my East Coast palette but a well made beer even so.  It's good, I drank it, and I'll drink another, but it's not my favorite.  Personal preference more than anything else.

Evil Cousin - Now this I really like.  It's billed as a massively hoppy IIPA but I thought the bitterness was actually not as extreme as the Twin.  It’s billed as 100 IBU on their website and while it’s hoppy it’s more in the huge, grapefruity hop flavor.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s bitter, but smooth and drinkable.  Delicious. 

Shallow Grave Porter -  Dark and roasty. Rich chocolate and caramel flavor but with a nice dry finish.  I could drink a couple. 

All in all I’m impressed by the beers.  Like I said, I could take or leave the Twin.  The Cousin is outstanding, and the Shallow Grave is a good beer.

I've been holding back from getting some from Beerjobber too since it would be about $105 shipped.  It would come out to about $8.75 per bottle which isn't a bad price, but for a beer I've never tried I'm not sure.

Besides with the $$$ spent going to NHC this year, I'm not sure the wife would be too happy ( not a beer drinker  :( ).

One day it will be mine...
