It's a surprise.  It does includes a first pass at a Brown IPA; here's the OG/FG images:

MikeG, yours are boxed up, just need to get them out tonight or tomorrow. Tomorrow is likely to spend less time enroute over the weekend

I'm thrilled and cannot wait.  Thank you again.

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.

Thanks, Toby!

Yeah.  I'm feeling more and more like a piker...

Perhaps I need to ship mine before I try his so I'm all in.  Otherwise, I'll be second guessing myself...

Just cracked a Bell's Old Ale, which mine is based off of.  It's soooo good.  Of course, it's also been aging in my cellar getting better.  Mine?  I'll reserve my critical analysis.

Well, just my opinion, but I would probably do the Mosaic IPA first.  Uber fresh (just kegged on 9/25 and bottled on 10/4).  Save the Scotch ales to either celebrate a momentous victory or to soothe the pains of a long string of disappointments.  ;)

Yes, I was lucky to be the one to receive Toby's offerings last time around. All great stuff!
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Just received a big box from Ynotbrusum!  Five homebrews and eleven commercial beers (mostly 12 ounce bottles/cans).  Jackpot!

Thanks, Jerry

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!

Well, you might not feel so lucky after a some of my less successful homebrews  ;).
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.
