SN Beer Camp Tropical IPA
« on: January 11, 2016, 08:16:03 PM »
Well, I can see that I'll be buying a lot of this in the coming months...

I thought I'd hate it because of the El Dorado, but a friend brought a few bottles over to crack after my scotch ale brew, wow.

Haven't seen it yet. Is it in a 12 pack with other beer camp brews?

It's sold on its own - 6ers, 12s draft etc

I wish I had seen this thread 2 hours ago while I was at the grocery store. I always stroll down the beer isle to see if anything interesting is available, I saw a 12er of the SN Tropical IPA, opened the door and picked it up, and then the little voice in me who tells me that I'm a decent homebrewer told me that I've brewed better "tropical" IPAs that can't be mass produced, so I put it back

Have not seen this yet, will be looking for it. As a follow up, I did see SN Otra-Vez gose style ale. Anyone tried this yet? Maybe I should start a new thread, sorry for the high jack

A friend bought a six and gave me a bottle, but I have not tried it yet - maybe later this week.

I think SN is doing a great job keeping up quality even with quite a few new offerings while still growing. Sounds like I have a couple to try when I start drinking again next month.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Just got a case from the Costco for less than a buck a bottle.  Score!
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

Still haven't spotted it here yet. However, with the local shops still very overstocked on Celebration, I'm beginning to wonder if we'll see this beer at all.
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

I got a six the other day. Not as tropical as I was expecting, but I like it. I think I like Hop Hunter better.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I thought it was a good beer. Good.  Not anything special.
