At first I thought it was overrated. Then my buddy invited me over for a bachelor party... what could be more sensible than a five liter? Now here I sit with likely my 50th glass and I couldn't be happier with this, my all time favorite American IPA.

We were jovial, you know, of course we were. The sunset a clear orange as we stoked up a flame on the yet-to-be-finished back porch, and dreaded, all but one of us, the weekend as we were going to lose our friend to that ever-deepening pit of commitment. We toasted to the times gone by, and we toasted to the times ahead, as few and far between as we knew they would likely become.
Dropping like flies, we were, all of us. I had gotten down on one knee but days before and pledged my own life away, and from that point we all know that things change. There's a priority shift, where you go from being your own center of the universe to having to care about someone else first. So here we were with glasses in our hands, celebrating the passage of yet another into this murky and unknown territory... territory from which we expected him seldom to emerge. So we sat and enjoyed this nectar. Little else to say other than nearly perfect, we all esteemed it to be. Glass after delicious glass, this one particularly, over all the others, seems to be as perfect as we could muster. The perfect golden clarity, lacing mousse atop, an aroma both delicate and assertive at once, the flavour the same... perfect. Just the right amount of bitterness, just the right amount of complexity, just the right amount of balance, slightly dry in the finish, just enough body to give the mouth something to hold on to, but light enough to throw back pint after pint... light enough that we got rather sloppy rather quickly, as we sat around the fire and enjoyed one last bout of freedom... Here's to what we're losing, boys, and here's to what each of us will gain. There's something to be said for someone to live life with, to always be there regardless of where there is. Yes, of course, we'll lose the togetherness that we have. But we'll change, we'll mature, and we'll always be friends.
Here's to the best times, with the best friends, and the best IPA in the world.
