    It's good, alright? Really, good. One problem was that I was eating meatballs in a lot of sauce, and that's pretty acidic. Doesn't mix well with the citrus bomb coming out of the can. So, I waited a little before really leaning into this one. —by Dan Aiken

    I think the score says more about how I was feeling at the time than it does about the beer. I drank this when I just got home from traveling and had a headache and a weird taste in my mouth. So, this just didn't go down quite right. I've had it before and really enjoyed it. Ok, bye. —by Dan Aiken

    The can doesn't lie. That ABV sneaks up on you. But . . . so good . . .when . . .hits . . .lips. This was my second beer of the day. The first one was a Citrus IPA from Funk brewing in Emmaus, PA. I had it on tap sitting in the Whole Foods dining area in Wynnewood. The beer was very good. I can't say I recommend the dining and drinking at the Whole Foods bar experience. But I don't discourage it either. It was just weird. Maybe chalk it up to my Pennsylvania-ness, which makes drinking beer in a grocery store weird. But, it felt like I was trying to force it into being acceptable when true Pennsylvanians know that getting a beer in everyday places is unacceptable and awkward. —by Dan Aiken

    This one is growing on me. I didn't used to like it very much at all. I enjoyed it this time around. Wish I made the party last night. But, I can only dominate so many things at once. Last night I was dominating cursing under my breath during my daughter's soccer game. I'm pretty much the best at that. —by Dan Aiken

    Remember when Sam Seaborn was dating a call girl and then that call girl was the date for a big donor who attended a state dinner at the White House? Then the next episode, we forget about her and just move on to Leo's daughter? This is a picture of Leo's daughter yelling at Sam for making her late to the Beijing Opera, which she later found out was because her dad made Sam write a birthday message for the assistant secretary of commerce just to disrupt the date. Shenanigans! —by Dan Aiken

    Very good. Every sip was perfect. I'm watching the West Wing again. Start to finish. Remember Mandy from season 1? Horrible. Anyway, I enjoyed this puppy while eating some Chinese food and then watching part of a West Wing episode before watching the first episode of Little Big Lies on HBO. It has its moments. Here's Mandy, who was horrible and mysteriously disappeared from the show.—by Dan Aiken

    It was fine, although it led to a personal disaster and a story that will be interesting to the cross section of beer people who are also into the indirect cooking of meat. I was cooking a pork shoulder on the Weber Kettle. Low and slow. About 18-20 hours of cooking time is the norm. I finished up this beer around 10:00 pm. Checked on the grill and decided to tamp down the coals because it was running hot. The plan was to check on it in a 1/2 hour. Woke up on the couch at 4:00 a.m. Went outside, the coals were a little too tamped down--grill temp was at 32 degrees. The meat temp was back down to 75 degrees--it was at 140 at 10:30. PSA: you can't eat meat that has gone through that kind of drastic temp change below 140 (or so). So, pretty much fuck everybody. And fuck this beer for ruining a perfectly good pork shoulder. matter . —by Dan Aiken

    Very good. I liked the spices and didn't find them overwhelming. I think many of you have been treating the beer very, very unfairly. Spicy is good.—by Dan Aiken

    Cold. Straight out of the can. Delicious. Could have had 6. Maybe 1.5 but you get the point. Had this while I was beating my son in NBA 2k17. I was the 85/86 Celtics. He was the Run TMC-era Warriors. Great match up. Here's a picture of it, more or less:—by Dan Aiken

    I liked it. I didn't find any of the flavors to be overwhelming or weird. I thought it had a great taste. As a caveat, I don't always taste specific flavors. We'll be eating, and my wife will be like, "I think they used cumin. Hmm. Interesting." And, I'm just like:—by Dan Aiken

    No matter how you come at this beer, it is consistently excellent. With spicy food, without food, as the first beer, or as the last beer, it's just really solid. The alcoholic embodiment of the "Come at me Bro" meme. —by Dan Aiken

    It's fine. Is there a hint of banana in there? Because literally everyone in the f-ing contest hasn't mentioned it. —by Dan Aiken

    Letting a beer warm up has always seemed dumb to me. But, after doing this contest for 15 years (somebody fact-check that), I accept that some beers just need some time and space. This is definitely one of those beers. At first, it smelled like nail polish remover. But once it warmed it was very good. And strong. As an Ode to Mike K who doesn't want to see anymore beer pics so he posted the baby with the fist up that we've seen only a million times, here's a picture of my beer, with a picture of Phineas, which I colored all by myself. If we're being honest with ourselves, we can all say that I really nailed it and stayed in the lines, mostly. —by Dan Aiken

    This review is dedicated to fellow participant, "CO". I don't know him/her. But, let's make one thing real clear. If you find a way to work in a reference to "Nothing But Trouble," in a beer review, then you're doing a lot of things right in your life. I've seen this movie several times, and I think about the premise of this movie more than is normal. I mean, who wrote it? Who said, this is a movie worth making? Is this movie based on a fictional Hammonton, NJ (if you've been there, you know the answer is "probably.") As for CO, I don't know if he/she often makes "Nothing But Trouble" references and just unleashed it on FOB because no one would know that he/she always works in "Nothing But Trouble" references. But I support it. All of it. Avowedly. —by Dan Aiken

    Drank this with some tacos from El Limon last night while my beautiful wife told me the things that we need to get done and the schedule for the week, and the things that we were supposed to get done but didn't, and the things that the kids were supposed to do but didn't, and the things that the kids did but weren't supposed to do. It goes on from there, but you get the gist. The whole time I was thinking, "this is good. Aston isn't that far from us. Is it 2SP or S2P? C3PO or 3CPO?" —by Dan Aiken

    Not thin. Phat? No one uses that word anymore. With good reason. This hit more of the notes I was looking for. Make up your own word for it and stop staring at me. —by Dan Aiken

    Look. We live in a time where words matter. I saw some reviews that called this beer "thin." I was like, "thin"? What the fuck does that mean? Then I poured it as my first FOB 2017 beer. I let it warm a little. Then I drank it. You know what? It was thin. I think thin means that every time you take a nice sip and expect to be inundated with some smooth tastes of chocolate or whatever other magical shit you are expecting, you just feel a little let down. Took a great picture of it, though. —by Dan Aiken
