I was on the john, thinking about opening you. You have one of those fancy cork tops with a gold metal puller, usually reserved for champagne or made-to-look-fancy Belgians.

But you're a $6.99 IPA. I must say I am confused. This isn't what a California-Style Double or Imperial looks like usually; but this is exactly why I went back after I walked away and put you in my basket. I wanted to know you.

You are made of Simcoe hops, from my lovely home; the great Pacific Northwest. I am investigating a murder here. The murder of Laura Palmer.

You are ninety-percent head on the first pour, but since it's bottle conditioned, I shouldn't be surprised. Head pours out of you and onto my table. You aren't at the lick-off-the-table level...yet.

What emerges from the head is a ruby ale, similar to the shoes Audrey Horne changes into at her locker. Sometimes, as sherrif, I wish I could drink beer all the time, instead of enjoying the coffee and doughnuts and the company of Josie Packard.

You are actually still spouting foam. I stick in an oily digit to relieve you. You taste like a pine tree or fir tips from the back of my truck. You have a dry bitter aftertaste - the hops aren't overly present either here or in my mouth. They are more present on the bottle.

You're the kid who said he could ball with the best, and when it came to throw down, played hard for a few possessions, not impressing anyone but not disapointing. Then you go down with an ankle injury, and leave us mystified, like you were faking the whole time. There is a brief light...but mostly a long darkness.

I sit in my truck with Cooper, waiting for something to happen outside of the Roadhouse. You smell like peppermint and oak, but I can't identify smells very well, from years of opening up paint cans and inhaling the fumes in the backroom at the hardware store. "Smell those trees!" Cooper says. But I can't. Because of the paint fumes.

You look more like a dark amber posturing as an IPA. But then, the hops start to kick in at the bottom of the bottle. Perhaps the conditioning had them sink. I don't know. I want to drink more of you! There are the hops! They live!

I hear sirens. Cooper offers to follow the sounds. We take off. I spill some beer. And now, I am disappointed; when before I don't know how I would have felt. I still don't know if it's adequate to call you a Double. You're more of a Strong Single.

I thought you were thin and wafery like Donna Hayward. A little floral, the type of girl who doesn't like to get thrown around or throw me around. But no, you pack a punch. You at first disappoint me, but when I get to the bottom of the bottle I am...aroused. Perhaps I will see you at One Eyed Jack's. Until then...
