Agreed. There were some stylistic differences between the two. But when you’re 5 PtYs in, coupled with whether you got pours from a fresh cask or later in one, it’s not as easy to differentiate between the two.

Re: What BEER are you drinking?

I loved the 28 Haze, but I loved it for its white grapefruit presentation, along with a thinner mouthfeel than is typical for a NEIPA; so, it sounds like we may have read it differently. I can't really compare it to the previous times I've had it because it's been too long. The R.A.M.S.: I liked it...

2014 Alesmith - "Speedway" Stout Monkish - R.A.M.S. DIPA Beachwood - 28 Haze Later NEIPA 2013 Bruery - "Smoking Wood" Brian, I loved this new canning of 28 Haze, IMHO it's more pronounced, the mouth seems fuller and the beer more hoppy/juicier over-all. What do you think of R.A.M.S ? Cheers man, Bud
