And the good Lord shown upon the Alchemist, giving them the good foresight to build a new house before the great flood...Seriously a blessing for them to have this in place when they did. How often does this serendipity happen?
DRINK FROM THE CAN! screams across the top of the can, and so, when camping, do as when in Vermont. And I'll buy the argument, keep these aromatics trapped in so they just burst back into your nose when you burp. Deal. But in the interest of having my coworker experience the pleasure, I pour myself a glass, and he drinks the can.
Finally, after an untiring weekend of attempting to punish the aluminum for its contents, I sight the colour of the liquid inside. And it is glorious in the Innis and Gunn goblet. Murky orange, dark tangelo on top fading into a lemony haze at the bottom of the glass. Awesome with hop residue and suspended yeast. I can get down with this.
Oranges, felled spruce trees, grapefruit rind, lemon curd, and wisdom zest overpower the malt that is obviously there when you take a sip. Juicy as a unicorn fart. The malt becomes evident when drinking but the crisp bitterness soon takes your hand and leads you away, astray, allaying any of your fears. For this beer is merely 8% and comes in a way too drinkable pint sized serving. Alcohol concealed behind a double curtain of hops.
This is the camping beer for a new breed of man. And so..we shall drink this on the moon next year.
