Just Like the Prodigal Sun, I've Returned


to tell you about Full Sail's Brewmaster's Reserve series. The series is made up of a variety of styles that are released periodically throught the year. So far this year I have seen Imperial IPA, Imperial Porter, Imperial Stout, Nut Brown, and now Prodigal Sun IPA (6.2%). The name is in keeing with thier IPA releases from 2006 and '07, Sunspot and Son of Spot. I don't remember seeing Son of Spot in Albuquerque last year. I had to pick it up in Portland, OR. I'm not a big fan of Full Sail's regular IPA but the Brewmaster's Reserve series has been top-notch beer so far. I'll give this one a shot tonight. Jubilation seems to carry all the beers in the series that are available to us, and they sell for a very reasonable $3.99. I have seen a couple of the releases at Kelly's, including an ESB in the series that went on sale in 2006! But that is another rant, for another time...

Okay, after my the two day recovery from the IPA challenge I have finaly tried and am now drinking this years Prodigal Sun. The first bit is good when cold, very bitter and not a bit floral. But as it warms, as I am letting it it becomes more bitter and dry. I will say I like it but only when out of the ice chest cold. Warm and it can wash my balls.
