    Good morning, everyone! The weather has been consistently inconsistent lately. I wonder whether Six Point is on to something?

    Morning BA's Trying a new IPA to start the day, this is Hopcity brewing co. hopbot IPA, this beer poured a slightly cloudy orangey amber color and smells strongly of grapefruit, orange, mango, caramel and some light pine, Hopefully the flavor is as good. Cheers!

    Good morning BA, have a great Saturday!

    This is an excellent IPA. Flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, mint, and pine; with light cracker/bready malts and herbal/grassy hop earthiness. Good sized pine/citrus rind bitterness; with a very smooth, crisp, dry, and sticky/resinous hop finish. I haven’t had this one in a while, glad I grabbed a single. Will do so again for sure.

    This is a top class American stout. Huge flavors of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toasted dark bread, and smoke/charred malt; with balanced herbal, pine, spicy hops; and some raisin, plum, licorice fruitiness. Good sized pine and roast/charred bitterness; with a creamy and sticky finish; with good dryness from hops and highly roasted character. Glad this is finally available in my county. The distributor finally picked it up last week. Still waiting on the Chainbreaker, Inversion, and Red Chair to show up. I hope they pull through.
    [​IMG]

    I haven’t had this in almost 4 years, so I decided to pick up a pack last week. Bottled Jan 2015. This was really delicious! Flavors of big raisin, prune, fig, date, banana, pepper, clove, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, toasted dark bread, and light nuttiness. Nice amount of peppery yeast on the finish; with some light bready creaminess and stickiness in the mouthfeel. Fairly dry, touch of yeast tartness. Lightly warming finish from ABV. Very well rounded in completely, with balanced yeast and malt notes. Seems to be a bit of a love/hate beer in the reviews, but I am glad I got the 4 pack. A really well made Belgian strong dark for the price. Very impressive.

    Fantastic imperial red! Big flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, and pine hops; with some caramel, brown sugar, and toasted bready malt and floral/grassy earthiness. Good sized pine/citrus rind bitter finish; with a dry and sticky/resinous mouthfeel; touch of malt creaminess. Only 6-7 weeks old on this bomber and it is outstanding. Very bright and juicy/resinous on hops. Dark/bready malt plays a supporting role in the background. So awesome.

    Cheers!

    Starting the day with this stout from Long Trail. It's OK, a little on the bitter side.

    Mrs. MacMalt always has flowers in the kitchen and she feels affirmed when I include them in my posts. I've offered her a Flower Power but she's not into IPA's.

    A very educational beer, showcasing the flavors/aromas of Maris Otter malts and Mosaic hops.

    Next up is Sawdust City Brewing of Gravenhurst Ontario's Lone Pine IPA. This IPA pours a cloudy orange with less than a finger of head, at 6.5 percent it has aromas of fresh pine, orange peel, grapefruit, and some plain malted barley. Cheers![​IMG]

    No coffee this morning, but kept it roasty outside.
    [​IMG]
    And then I brought an early springtime inside.
    [​IMG]
    For some strange reason, I was into 90's alternative covers of 70's dance songs this morning.
    From the movie So I Married an Ax Murderer. I remember liking the soundtrack more than the movie.

    The short lived Johnny Depp/Gibby Haynes band, aka the band onstage at the Viper room while River Phoenix was dying outside.

    I honestly don't know if I like the original or this version better.

    Happy Saturday, my fellow beer loving degenerates.

    A little dark roast after a good nights sleep and a sunrise dog walk. I feel this beer is slowly changing, opening up to some dark chocolate and a bit of licorice in the finish. It should be fun to revisit 6-12 months down the road. Gearing up for some fun tomorrow, need to tidy up a bit around here this morning. Thinking of heading to 18th Street's new brewery later. Cheers to Saturday fun!

    Woke up to this today......

    I stopped at Hair of the Dog on my road trip to Canon Beach so I could pick up two of these bottles which were only for sale at the brewery itself. It was well worth the trip.

    Bells 30th and 18th Street in the same day? Congrats, @Prager. You're having the best day ever.

    Same boat, @champ103 - my father had lots of his news photos in Chicago papers in the 60's and 70's, and I can't figure out how to take good pictures with a goddamn "smart" phone.

    And to the Radiohead BAs this morning-thanks!
