I totally did. ;D

Ask Denny and Jeff, they were at NHC.  Denny tried it, I'm not sure if Jeff did but he might have seen the whiteboard with the name there.  Maybe not though, it kicked pretty fast.

Yep, he certainly did!  Of the 2,176,512 CDAs there, Tom's was the only one I really liked.

Of course I tried it!  Who could resist with a name like that?

I used some that I got from a friend to make a CDA and a hoppy red.  They turned out really nice.  Even Denny liked the CDA :)
Cross dressing Amateur?  
As a matter of fact yes, that's what it is called.  It was written on the whiteboard in the hospitality suite at NHC, just for you.  :-*

I would have guessed Cascadian Dark Ale but I would have been way off.   8)
Nah, you would have been right on.  It's a Cascadian Dark Ale I named Cross Dressing Amateur in beersk's honor. ;D
Oh, I see, you mean a Noonan Black Ale.

I brewed a straight apa with these hops two weeks ago. as I was vigorously stirring for pitching I was totally digging the wonderful mango notes I was smelling. I'm bottling it this weekend. I'll get back when it's ready.
cheers.

"You take drugs, Danny?"

"Everyday."

"Good."


Well thanks Tom, I wish I could've tried that beer, myself...And yes, how can one resist a beer called Cross Dressing Amateurs?  

Could have a dark hoppy beer called Impaled Ale.  Metal in the niiiiiiiiiight-uh!
