I love drinking with people for the first time to see how they change.

As for myself, I'd say I'm a mix. Normally, I'm pretty shy around people I don't very well. When I drink, I'm way more outgoing and my pickup skills improve a lot. Biggest negative for me when drinking is that I'll get into altercations more often. That said, I still maintain that most aren't my fault.

See I'm a pretty easy going guy to begin with and I don't really change. I mean if someone pisses me off I'll get roudy, but usually I'm one of those guys who just laughs at everything and gets lovie dovie towards girls. I think when I drink I tell at least one girl I love them. It's pretty funny actually. I'm not a big drinker though. Out of all my friends I consume the least amount of alcohol.

I'm the same way. I'll usually avoid conflict but if somebody really pisses me off I'll almost assuredly try to fight them. As for girls, my beer goggles have a very strong prescription and I'll hit on anything that moves basically. That said, I don't have a reputation as a dragon slayer and I usually come to my senses before I do something I'll regret.

To tell you the truth, I've maybe hooked up with one girl, maybe. I'm not quite sure what happened that one night, my friends said something did happen but she said nothing didn't, and I wasn't sober enough to remember anything.

Like you though I have pretty good judgement, even when I'm intoxicated. I know not to drive drunk and I usually don't hook up with girls. I just hit on them, haha.

Don't worry, my conversion rate on girls is pretty bad also. My opening game is good but the wheels always fall off late in the game, haha.

Drinking and driving is a big no-no. I've had enough tragedy involving drinking and driving and just driving in general to know not to mess with it.

Hitting on girls drunk is a lot of fun. Getting rejected never hurts as much (if at all) and a lot of funny stories stem from drunk pickup sessions.

Well being drunk gives you an excuse to use a bunch of pathetic pickup lines. Haha I break out the book on those. I've used the pants party, the did you fall from heaven one, the parking ticket one, and a bunch of others. Girls usually just crack up and start laughing. Although my conversion rate with them sucks, but hey I don't mind. I don't really put to much stock into not getting lucky on a night of drinking. If I score I score, if I don't I don't.

I do like watching my friends get drunk though with me stayin sober. It's a lot of fun to see how they act and stuff on a sober mind.

I don't even know what I do when I'm drinking but it tends to work. My best (almost) pick-up ever I thought I had imagined until the next day when a buddy confirmed it. I remember planning it out in my mind but I didn't remember actually doing it until later.

I agree 100% with not caring if you score or not. I just like to have fun and see where the liquor takes me. In the past year I've had so many crazy adventures that it's tough remembering them all. For me, that's what it's all about.

So have you thought about aging any of the 120s? Usually when I buy a whole case it's because it's a rare beer and it will likely do well with some years on it.

Yeah, I just checked their website and it's not available in Illinois. Oh well. Anyway, how the heck don't you like barley wines? If you like DIPA's, I'd think you'd at least enjoy Bigfoot from Sierra Nevada. Are the ones you've tried just too malty? Too sweet? I can't imagine strength being an issue for you. Which ones have you tried so far?

to be honest, at this age, (16) i havent acquired a taste for it yet, and i dont plan on rushing it. I've had some here and there, and I just don't see the big deal. The few times i know i have been drunk, i didn't really find the buzz to be that great. There is really no point for a 16 year old boarding school student to force himself to get smashed, because I really don't need it, and i have no craving for alcohol, nor do i to drink it for kicks. I'm actually fortunate for that, but hey, i realize its the age factor, as im only 16

i heard something about dogfishhead IPA being rated the best domestic IPA. so i tried it...it was pretty good..i've had better, but personal preference.

my all time favorite IPA is from brewery here in town called Titletown. it's called Hoposaurus Rex IPA. probably the most bitter beer i've ever had. then sometimes they age it in a cask and call it Caskosaurus Rex IPA. and that comes out even more bitter.

To each his own. Getting drunk can be fun and the consequences don't generally exist.

I usually drink cheap beer. However, when I feel like spending a few extra bucks I'll grab a Sunset Wheat, Blue Moon, or Bell's Oberon.

it's the sweet-malt-alcohol combo that throws me off. the bitterness/sweet combo really makes my taste buds cringe. beerline from lakefront in milwaukee... and uh. i think i had something from rogue. i don't remember what. and the full complement of 'strong' ales. i mean, i can enjoy the brandywine barley wine from goose island, i love the taste brandy casks add to anything.

Well, I live in Ontario and the LCBO monopoly prevents us from getting a lot of the good American microbrews, so we're stuck with the mainstream imports and occasionally some decent Canadian microbrews.

My all-time favourite brew is Hoegaarden. I also like all of Unibroue's stuff. If I'm going buck-a-beer, I go with Lakeport Honey. I'm rounding up some friends to do some brewery tours this summer. We want to go to Mill Street and Steam Whistle here in Toronto, and maybe do a road trip to Quebec to go to the McAuslan brewery.

That's not what I meant. I meant that I prefer to buy by the case if something is rare and worth aging. I'd buy it by the case knowing that it won't be around long. I have to disagree about the DIPA's. Some are worth aging, but that's rare. Of all the stronger styles, DIPA's are at the bottom of the list as far as aging potential. Reason being that the main thing that makes them so great is that strong hop character. That is what those beers are all about. The first thing to leave a beer is the hop flavor. So they're best fresh, and usually recommended by the brewer to be consumed fresh. Otherwise they wouldn't spend all that time and money pouring hops into the beer in the first place. They'd just make a different style. I like to age Imperial Stouts and Barley Wines mostly. They benefit greatly. Gueze is another great candidate. Basically everything from Jolly Pumpkin will do well with age, but not many people can back that statement because their beers haven't been on the shelves long enough to know for sure. I recently tried a "La Roja" though, and I'm positive it will improve greatly with a few years on it. Old style ales such as Old Stock from North Coast, JW Lees Harvest Ale, and Thomas Hardy's are perfect beers to age as well. Also, Rauchbier's are excellent with years on them. It's almost a necessity for a lot of those smoked beers. Like the Alaskan Smoked Porter. It's regarded as one of the very best beers for aging despite it's meager 6.5 ABV.

I realize the history of India Pale Ales, and the fact that they put all those hops in there to help the beer survive the long trip. Of course those DIPA's will last a long time. They have high alcohol and tons of hops. But just because it will age, doesn't mean it will be better for it. Just my opinion though. I would imagine the 120 would damn near need at least a few years on it. But that's just based off what I've heard about it. I can't imagine a beer of that strength being very palatable while fresh. Can't wait to try one though and scout it's potential for myself.

Try the beers from Jolly Pumpkin. I think you'll enjoy the bourbon flavors that come through in most of their beers. Not Barley Wines, but very interesting beers that I think you might enjoy. Well, you've got to like a bit of sourness too. I hear you on the Barley Wines. That's most people's complaint. I'd still recommend the Bigfoot from Sierra Nevada though. It's leaning way more on the DIPA side than Barley Wine.

Not sure if anyone posted this or if anyone is from Louisiana but Abita Amber is an awesome beer with a great taste. There are 6 or 7 different varieties year round and seasonal ones as well. If you are ever around here in a bar pick one up.

I also love Shiner Bock and Shiner Blonde.

It is never too early to talk about beer. The response we got last week was incredible, though.
