    A very lovely dinner made by my love! A true honor to have my wife be a professional chef!

    A cold orzo salad, bok choy wuth shrimp, and a strip loin with shitake, portabella, and oyster mushrooms. Add a crisp green salad and voila!

    A few of the earlier posts here inspired me for this.
    It's about that time for some hop extracts!
    [​IMG]

    Gosh, they must get highly extracted hops in here, don't you think? Doesn't bother
    me in the least, I'm sure. They could use more next time!
    Cheers!

    I would imagine the concept of hop extract is the same as vanilla extract. We know the generic version of vanilla, but there is also homemade or fancy made extract which you can really taste the difference!

    I've got Sucks, NN, and Palate Wrecker on deck. I've had one hell of a day and I'm sure that these will help ease my stress. :)

    Bottled ~3 weeks ago!
    Definitely the freshest I've had this one and it doesn't disappoint. Awesome IPA, one of my favorites for sure.

    I have been drinking Sculpin for a couple of years. Used to taste sweet and smell fragrant to me, now still good, but very different to my nose and palatte. Very muted to what it used to be to me, good, but different.

    I inherited a holiday 12 pack of Abita from my brother this weekend after he ended up with a ton of surplus beer for a party.

    Sadly that is where the good news ends. Compared to Sucks and Racer 5 (the A/DIPAs I have had the previous evenings), it just doesn't hold up. Tastes of slightly stale, buttery ginger snaps and orange peel while being a touch light on the hoppy goodness. Definitely some good stuff going on here but I'm not sure it has all come together.
