Does anyone have experience with these. Mrs. R grabbed some from YVH the last day, they were not shipping any home.

Haven't yet. I'll be curious to see what you think, Jeff.

Our club all got them... we were thinking about pooling and doing a smash brew, but I'm not sure when that will happen.

Stone had a Pekko dry hopped version of Old Guardian. I didn't care for it. It was rather minty to me. Like drinking a beer after brushing your teeth.

Interesting... good to know.  Maybe smash isn't the way to go.

I edited my original post. I believe it was dry hopped with pekko.

Minty is in the description.

Drinking a pekko single hopped IPA at a brewery in golden, co. This place makes high quality, very clean west coast style hoppy beers. They list it as minty as well but as a secondary note. It is very interesting. I get more juniper than mint and it is the prominent attribute to me. Any pineapple, melon, and citrus that they describe the beer with is definitely an underlying attribute. It almost has a gin like character which is strange but interesting. It honestly tastes like what I think an IPA with juniper berries would be like.

I can agree with juniper.

I take offense at the Pekko-brand marketing material (re: http://www.adha.us/sites/default/files/uploads/logo-pekko.jpg).  There's a subset of craft beer attitude that is entirely adolescent; meaning, I personally need to be done with it.  It has no place for those who have any kind of respect for women, and their marketing style doesn't appear to have anything to do with good hops.  Passing it up and staying clear of whomever is http://adha.us.

She could be a goddess.  Have you seen the original Starbucks logo?

Although, the days could be considered insensitive to dwarfs.

The packages we got from HomebrewCon have a sticker that says Artwork Banned, over the artwork linked above.

Good on the AHA for being proactive. My wife pointed this out to me.

It is particularly unusual and unnecessary advertising for hops.
