Week of 2.2.2009 - Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale and a bad beer?

This week I picked up a Stone brew that I had never had before. I bought a 22oz of Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale for about 5 bucks at BevMo. The description called it a Double IPA which is why I picked it up. I what as good one. It was a little darker than the stuff I have been drinking and I'll pick it up again.

Ok... now for the bad beer. Ok... I wouldn't really call it bad but compared to all the "good' stuff have had lately this one kind of let me down. I bought a six pack of Victory Brewing Co.'s Hop Wallop. It was on sale and over the Holidays while in PA I had another one of the beers, Festbier, and I really liked it. The Hop Wallop is definitely hoppy but not as bitter and flavorful as the killer San Diego IPA's I have been drinking.


  1. A friend brought over a bottle (only 1) of the Stone Self Righteous and I had the same thought as you: yum but darker than I've been drinking.
    Can't miss with Stone.

  2. what kind of friend only brings on bottle?

  3. hahaha. . .I made-up the difference, or I should say Dale did.

  4. dude, give this a shot - i had it last night, and it was tasty if you like hefs. I will say that its almost like the orange is already added:
