Hillinger Pinot Gris 2015 $12.99
Given its uncomplicated nature, Pinot Gris, also known as Grauburgunder in Austria, is very enjoyable to drink.

Licking Hole Creek Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA 4 pack $15.99

10.5% ABV
A hazed/murky amber brown with a thinner off white head atop,very menacing looking. Sharp citric notes in the nose over top of nutty malts,seems kinda old school. Sharp grapefruit rind flavors with some sugary sweetness intertwined with nutty malts and alcohol,some mild honey funk shows itself as well. So yeah it's sweet like too many of the style but it has a nice sharpness to it as well.Not your NE style IPA/DIPA by any means.
