170/1988) Home:  All Day IPA Session Ale by Founders Brewing Company of Michigan, U.S.A.:  **;  4.7%, 42 ibu;  brewed with barley malt, wheat malt, oats, Simcoe and Amarillo hops (and those ingredients are listed in seven languages);  nose is a blend of hops;  pine, resin, tropical notes;  mildly herbal with a piney finish;  a pleasant APA;

171/1989) Home: Cusqueña Dorada Golden Lager by Backus y Johnston (who are owned by SABMiller) of Peru:  *1/2;   5%;  my son brought this back from Peru;  Saaz hops;  grassy, malty nose;  sweet, light bodied;

172/1990) Home:  Invictus Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout by Flying Monkeys of Ontario:  **1/2;  17.5% ;  aged one year in Heaven Hill, Jim Beam and Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrels;  nose is bourbon, wood, leather, dark chocolate, raisins;  very strong flavours, a blend of sweet bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit;  as well as being high octane it comes in a large bottle so it is another one for sharing;

This was available on-line only, marking my first experience if you don't count the limited edition Utopias.  My quibble has been that regularly you are required to buy six or twelve of a beer that is expensive to begin with.  Luckily this was available as a single unit and I was able to fluff my order beyond the free shipping minimum with little fuss.
