Nothing compared to some of the previous uber brite beers, but I'm happy with it. My Vienna Lager (the one that finished in 6 days)

I was going to post a pic of some 5-year-aged cider, but I figured that might be cheating.  It's crystal clear.

That IPA is downright bright, Mort.  That's tough to achieve especially after dry hopping. I can only get near that bright with gelatin after dry hopping. Nice.

thanks, no gelatin there. Irish moss in the boil and that's it.

That's impressive. I seem to hit a threshold at ~ 4+ oz of dry hops - much tougher to clear (no surprise). I've been using 5 or 6 oz dry in most IPAs. Plenty of hop haze there if I don't use gelatin.

I only dry hopped with ~60 grams so I'm sure it would be hazier with more

My pumpkin saison from the Zymurgy recipe in the Augustish issue. This was brewed in September. It's finally come into its own in appearance, taste, and drinkability.
