QUESTION: WWRCD: What would Ronnie Coleman drink?
On tap at Elis... ugh. I've been drinking much less and hitting the gym hard. I didn't even want to go -- but decided on the Deadlift IPA for my one mug of the night. Good choice. Notes of pine, citrus with a strong floral aroma. Very pleasant IPA. Big bold flavors.
Almost as impressive as my 395# deadlift ...almost.
Ended up with a headache anyway. Every. single. time. It's the Elis standard.
This winter, I'll stick to homebrew and lifting heavy ass weight.
ANSWER: Protein. Beer doesn't get you swole.
Serving type: on-tap

From notes, 7/11/11. Nelson IIPA version. Appearance is fine. Mildly cloudy, bright orange. A dissipating head that stuck around for awhile as a thin film of bubbles. The aroma is grassy with tropical fruits - more kiwi/papaya than pineapple, like some hops. A bit grapey, too. Not quite strong enough for my taste but pretty good. On the palate, it starts out with some hop resin flavor with an alright crystal malt backbone, but the finish mars things with a big booze note that goes particularly poorly with the grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is, well, hot. Plus, the beer is a bit sticky. Didn’t much like this one, despite the hop choice.
