Mix Tape 8 from Brewdog is one of my favorite beers! It is such a complex brew, or in the words of the head brewer Stewart Bowman, "fucking complex!" You can definitely tell it was aged in whisky barrels. Outstanding to say the least! Ratebeer agrees rating it an overall 99 at an ABV of 14.5%. I don't know what a 12oz bottle of this costs in the states but living in Japan and now England I pay around $15 a bottle, worth every penny! Please pic one up and try if you see it.

The next one I had tonight was Founder's Centennial IPA. Tried this one on tap at the local pub/restaurant in town and was delighted. Had a nice hoppy but citrus flavor. Great floral aroma. This IPA rated a 99 as well on Ratebeer.com with an ABV of 7.2%. Another good IPA to have on hand for a relaxing pint after a long day on the job.
Wanna give a shout out to no label brewing in Katy, TX. Awesome place to go sample some of their brews. Picnic tables, food trucks, cigar stand, live music etc. Great set up and you will absolutely have a great time hanging with friends, shootin' the shit. FYI, their Don Jalapeno Ale is so damn tasty! Wow! Wow!
Definitely relaxed after having both, although we shared the Mix Tape 8. I highly recommend both of these great beers!
