I shared the Victory Wild Devil with my wife the other night. The label says it starts off as an IPA-style beer, but they use Brettanomyces yeast. It definitely had some IPA leanings, but the wild yeast flavors really come through. We both quite enjoyed it.

Yesterday I picked up a six-pack of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. It's a solid beer with good maltiness. Today, I picked up one bottle each of 2009 Gouden Carolus Kuvee Van De Keizer and Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale, and a six-pack of Anchor Christmas Ale. I had the latter two this evening. Both were quite tasty. The Anchor brew had the characteristic piney notes, but was tastier than I remembered their previous Christmas offerings were. The Samuel Smith beer was better, though. Lovely maltiness with a nice but subdued hop balance.
