Haven't tried it yet. Got to let it sit for at least a day after it bouncing around in my pocket or it'll explode.

Boneyard tap takeover in a local bar here on Saturday, thankfully they still have some.
Their Notorious IPA3 is 11.5% but tastes half that, amazing.

Stone have started doing 4 course meals with brewmeisters. 75 euro.
They have a fair bit of land and big plans.

Are whiplash beers readily available in Dublin? I'll be paying a visit over Christmas.
There's a meet the brewer with them coming up here soon, but probably not until the new year.

O'Higgins in Clonskeagh, and Redmonds of Ranelagh both stock those beers. Think I've bought them in the Whelan's front bar too. V. distinctive can.
Haven't discovered anything new that's blown me away in a while.
Anyone done any good brewery tours in or around London?

Whiplash is in most decent off-licences in Dublin now.

JC the Bermondsey beer mile is the big one. It has Fourpure, Brew By Numbers, Partizan, Kernel and a few other breweries and pubs all along the same stretch. I really want to do it myself soon.

Had these over the weekend

White Hag Tuireann Bán - Really nice IPA though a bit Sweet

White Hag The Púca - A lemon sour, really liked it

8 Degrees Wayfarer - This is a sour IPA, I really really like it and regret only getting the 1 bottle. It was actually kind of light and refreshing, there was still a hoppiness to it even though it was more sour.

8 Degrees Monsoon - Not bad, would probably be nice with food

really good stuff coming out from Irish breweries these days
