    Really digging this barrel-aged berliner (and it went very well with bbq pulled pork sandwiches)

    Beer of the Day - BOTD - 2020

    Agreed that its more than just baseless marketing, hazy IPA's had been more of an east coast thing but have definitely been all the rage in California for the last year or so. When I visited a friend in Cleveland last year we did a brewery crawl and I was blown away at how many hazies there...

    No on-the-grill pics, but did some trit-tip and a grilled squash and corn salad with tomato and lime juice.

    Scents that "grow on you"

    +1 to this. Rhapsody was actually the same way for me too, these are the first two that came to mind.

    Looking for a Ylang Ylang centered A/S splash

    Interesting, I don't really think of Y-Y as being a standout scent component of Brut (haven't read the scent pyramid for it tho, and I haven't used LFP yet). I don't know of any straight Y-Y aftershaves, but ColdRiverSoapWorks Tropicos is pretty heavy on it to my nose. Mike's...

    Knot most similar to Paladin

    I have a brush with an Oumo knot that’s a decent Paladin substitute as well. It’s not one of their HD knots, and has good backbone but tips that are very nice when wet.

    Disappointing Soap, Disappointing Vendor

    I partially agree with you, but I would consider Bullgoose more in the clear if they included something in their listing for these that they have diminished scent, or at least could. There are lots of vendors/artisans that will clear things out and they will plainly list that there is something...

    Two band knot???

    So are you unhappy with the size of the knot in your original post, or the characteristics? From what I know of black badger knots and SHD knots, there are definitely differences other than just any bleaching/treating that might occur with the tips on SHD knots. Where did you get your SHD knots...
