    Wait, WTF. I found an actual reference to a Garbanzo McFuddlebaum from 2005.

    Green is my favorite color by Cloudburst

    4.15/5 rDev -0.2%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

    [​IMG]

    Can received from @snaotheus in Bif14

    new beer. New brewery , Fresh hops!!

    Brewers notes:

    Green Is My Favorite Color

    Wet Hop IPA | 6.0% | 60 IBU
    It’s true. Green IS our favorite color. It’s just so versatile. It can be bright, it can be light, it can be dark, it can be camouflage, it can be neon, it can be almost grey or brown but not really, or it can be unquestionably...green. Where are we going with this...nobody knows. Amarillo is Spanish for “yellow” though. And, yellow and green are pretty close in color. AND, this beer was brewed with GREEN AMARILLOS from Virgil Gamache Farms to the tune of 18# per barrel - pretty crazy, huh? So here it is - in all it’s fresh and wet and dank and citrus glory.

    Canned 9.23 in the Pacific Northwest , opened 10.13 overlooking Plymouth Bay

    Hazy golden yellow , two finger rocky white foam cap , good retention after five minutes , settles to an island with grasping rings , spotty lacings

    Aroma is lemon citrus, tangerine, lemon rind

    Taste is lightly lemon , dank finish , fresh hoppy taste

    Good sudsing , semi dry finish , gentle hop bite

    Good beer

    @snaotheus , thank you !!!

    @FrankenMiller nuked my porch today. The counter couldn't handle the breadth of this photo, so here's a rug photo instead. Lots of IPAs I'm eager to dive into, along with that mystery beer.

    I got a last minute free entry into a half marathon this weekend. I'm actually trying to drink less, but I'll be enjoying that cold brew right afterwards. Some of those IPAs will be deleted during the noon NFL football games this weekend.

    [​IMG]

    Actually, this is also a new glassware shape for me. I've seen it around, but never picked one up. Eager to give that a go.

    Absolutely unnecessary - you have crushed it (pun intended) with the three boxes you’ve sent me, Terry. I have enough fresh hops and winter warmers and weizenbocks to last me until the next millennium.

    Here’s the haul from Box #3 from my friend @BBThunderbolt …..

    [​IMG]

    Mystery beer (!!!!!), barrel aged coffee (!!!!!), a fantastic glass (!!!!!), and another mother lode of fresh hops from the home of hops (PMW baby!!!!!).

    I now have enough fresh hops to bequeath them as part of the ovaltine will. IJS.

    You are the best, Terry. The absolute f*cking best.

    I ran a 50 mile trail race (the VT 50) back in 2011 and Garbanzo McFuddlebaum ran the 50k. If I remember correctly, he was in his early 60s at the time. All I know is that it's my favorite name ever.

    I paired you two together specifically because I figured it would cause some chaos and delay a call-out - but I never said I wouldn't pair people together this round in the official rules. :grinning:

    Alright, I owe a LIF thanks to my good friend @Ozzylizard. Let’s do this.

    If you’ve seen me post here and in WBAYDN threads and in NBW BIF threads, you know Joy and I (and James) are dog people.

    Big time.

    Ranger is our dog, and as I told the administrator at the rescue through which we adopted him during the interview I had to submit to (after completing a 4-page application that took 3 days and reviews by 7 attorneys to complete to get our “free” rescue puppy), “Ma’am, with all due respect, this little guy will hit the doggy lotto if we’re allowed to adopt him - there will not be a dog more loved on this planet than him.”

    That ended the interview and 2 weeks later, we had Ranger. Here’s a variety of pics over the years of our “little guy” …..

    This LIF is exceptionally easy, with one question to be answered, and two tiebreakers (if needed). Entries will be accepted until this Sunday, 10/17/21, at 11 pm Eastern time (8 pm Pacific time).

    Unless I change my mind. And this LIF is open to all participants in this BIF, and is also open to participants in the previous BIF. I’m looking at you, @Dimidiata - it was your LIF a month or so ago that provided inspiration for this LIF.

    On to the question:

    1. Ranger is a mutt, in the most wonderful way. Per the adoption folks, what is Ranger’s primary breed?

    Tie breaker #1: in which state was Ranger born?

    Tie breaker #2: what is Ranger’s age (in months)?

    The winner of this LIF will receive a full allotment of “special” beers from a brewery near and dear to me that is celebrating their brewery doggo this weekend with their annual release of beers in this doggo’s name.

    These are very ….. “stout” beers.

    Plus some other selections from this same brewery (hops!!!) to fill up a big ol’ box.

    Good luck, my friends!

    Erin and I consulted, and we are going with Australian Shepherd as the primary breed. Even if we are right, we have no idea what the mix is.

    TB1: PA (because: HA!)
    TB2: an even 60 months. I know you've been posting pics of Ranger for a while, and I feel like he's always been full grown, so ... there. Logic. Big brain.

    Alright, cracking another one from a wonderful participant in this BIF. I simply have too many beers to open this weekend in the NBW thread, so I better start cracking the fresh IPAs. This one was gifted from the amazing @Roguer and it's a new brewery for me. I am absolutely loving this one!

    Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice murky orange with a good amount of white head. Nose is bursting with fruity hops, citrus peel, damp leather, caramel corn, pineapple, and a touch of coconut. Maybe I'm just transported to the tropics and that immediately brings me to coconut. Regardless, it's a wonderful note.

    Taste: Wow. Not overly hoppy. Sweet candy, toffee, banana, pineapple, leather, a touch of spice (maybe pepper?), wet grass, and a little bit of walnut flavors. That coconut/rum note appears again on the taste. Malty. This is very different from most DIPAs that I've tried. This is really smooth and not sharp around the edges.

    Mouthfeel and overall: Light and crisp on the feel. Lovely to drink. A wonderful aftertaste. Overall, this is one of my favorite double IPAs. More approachable and the flavors are diverse. Love it! Thanks for sending this one, Andrew!

    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

    That second pic puts him in the Spitz genre (or at least part of his DNA) and based on other features I'd guess German Spitz. His size is too large for just that though.
    What state? Michigan. (Frankenmuth is about as German as you can get this side of the Atlantic)
    Age? I'll go 72 months. He looks pretty mature.
    Nice looking dog! Looks to really enjoy the water. My two Icees don't, even though the breed comes from a small island nation.

    I know IPAs aren't your jam, but I can't help but send along some Beer'd and Tree House. :grinning:

    I think you nailed that one: it's just smooth. Beer'd does IPAs really, really well (IMO, the best in Connecticut). That one isn't a fan favorite, or their highest rated, but it's impressively smooth.

    I hope that coffee is good. As a non-coffee drinker, I've no clue how much the stuff costs. Until now. If the barrel flavor ain't strong, somebody is getting slapped.

    Good day yinz all! I've been hit - good thing I've got overload springs in my SUV:

    [​IMG]

    Holy crap Ross! Did you decide to quite drinking and bless me with your hoard? Your generosity is overwhelming - I'll be drinking at least another month thanks to your restocking of my beer reefers (I've got to borrow a third one from my son)! After the usual UPS mis-directions, I finally picked them up at the depot last night, amid a mixture of anger and relief. The driver decided they were leaking (they weren't!) and decided to return them to the depot - apparently the "Perishable" tag frightened him. Anyway, I'll post pictures and data later today, after Mrs. Lizard heads to her quilting coven retreat and I pick up a wide angle lens for my camera! You realize, of course, that retaliation is demanded.

    Hopefully everything made it in tact. Boxes look like they are in good shape, so I assume so. I thought about removing the "perishable" sticker from that one box, but was too lazy. I can't remember what was in that box originally (I think I was sent food from my work for some unknown reason), but I do recall that my first thought when I opened it was "I have to save this...this would make a great box for beer shipping". I can't be the only one who can't look at a box without instantly assessing whether I should save it for future beer shipping purposes, right?

    Argh, that annoys me so much. "The driver decided they were leaking ... and decided to return them to the depot." Seriously: fuck that guy.

    This kind of shit happened to me with UPS way too much, both as a shipper and receiver. And we've had, what, three boxes now wrapped and delivered by USPS despite breakage?

    Don't get me wrong: I'm still very wary about shipping bottles in flat rate boxes, and usually will include a max of 1 or 2 12 oz bottles - I prefer to go all cans. But if I'm going UPS/FedEx, I prefer to use bottle shippers (I did not this round and really felt like I was rolling the dice - but I had to get food and glassware in there).
