Quick Pliny story if you'll indulge me. I live in a part of the country where about the only way to get PtE is by trade. Traded for my first last year and just loved it. Kind of forgot how it tasted since then but yesterday a box arrived in a trade and there were 2 Pliny's in it. I got home from work last night and popped them in the fridge. I'm an over the hill bicycle racer and this time of year with cold weather and not enough daylight I ride on a trainer in my garage every night for about 1 hour 45 min. as soon as I get home. So I do my ride (they're brutal and monotonous) and as soon as I'm done I head for the fridge absolutely drenched in sweat and open a Pliny into one of those big Sam Adams glasses. One big sip and glass in the fridge and up to my shower. My days are hectic and I use a very long shower as my first bit of relaxation every day - nothing like it after the cold workout. Last night, I hop in the shower and all I'm thinking about is how good that Pliny is. I soap up and rinse off in 60 seconds, towel off, throw on sweats and rush down to the fridge to pull that glass of Pliny out. While I'm sipping, I keep thinking that I don't know how an IPA could be better and that this is the reason I drink beer. Then I realized I forgot to shave.
