    Just because there were slim pickin's yesterday doesn't mean there weren't displays of epic proportions...literally! That being said, It's time for the Glass of the Day Awards! (Oh my God! I can hear your roars of enthusiasm from my desktop! Shhhhh...here it goes)
    GotD: Obviously goes to @dikebrewery for the G.O.U.S. (Glass Of Unusual Size...get it!?). Busted out an insanely large Chimay glass for his second GotD honors. Cheers and congrats!
    2nd: This glass has been an honorable mention before, but I love it so much, I feel it deserves a second glance for everyone to enjoy. @ions for keeping it DANK!
    3rd: Another wonderful submission from @Shanex who is just racking up the awards at this point. This Affligem glass was used at a beverage providing facility making it disqualified for GotD status, but needed to be mentioned. Keep up the competition people, and start giving Shanex a run for his money!
    Honorable mentions go out to all LNBA glass users for patiently and painstakingly awaiting the relaunch of BA last night, and to @PuppyClawz for trying to use her Jedi mind tricks on me with the Cantina Coozy...again! Cheers, and see you all soon!

    Good afternoon BA, happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fun work week. Mine was pretty uneventful. A lot of people were on vacation the whole week. My birthday is tomorrow, so I am going to need to make some cellar decisions to pull tonight. Review time:

    Revisit from 4 years ago. Insane IPA! Amazing head retention and dense lacing the whole glass. Aromas and flavors of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, and pine hops; with some toasted bread/light caramel malt balance; and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Good sized pine/rind bitterness; medium body; sticky/resinous with a fair amount of bready Munich creaminess in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing dryness from resins; with minimal lingering hop astringency. Wow, I fully expected this to be a lower review than last time but it wasn’t. Super juicy/bright on hops with tons of complexity. Good malt backbone, but still very dry. Need to buy a full 6er ASAP. 4.5

    Very nice Berliner. Aromas and flavors of tart lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, hay, wood, vanilla, herbal, and floral; with balanced wheat/cracker malts; with some light funk as well. Balanced tart/sweet finish; light-medium bodied; balanced grainy wheat creaminess and acidity in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate dryness. Insanely drinkable, crisp, refreshing. A more balanced approach to a Berliner; not super sour, but still has plenty. The elderflowers are definitely well represented. 3.78

    Dang! I am on fire! GotD again!!! Thank you @Lingenbrau for the honor. Much love to everyone out in BA land today, Stay safe and love everyone, even if they drink cheap macro swill or dislike beer altogether. Cheers BAs

    PS: I think I am about out of award winning glasses but I'd sure love to win three of these! Only then could my glassware collection be called a dynasty.

    I like a lot of Ballast Point products, but I also believe they are overpriced. Too many good options for less money.
    But... I had filled up my rewards "punch card" from my local store, so I got a 6-pack for half price.
    So, some grapefruit Sculpin is definitely a tasty beer when the price is right.

    Congrats! Chimay what you crave...! Awesome glass and well deserved award.
    Thanks @Lingenbrau and I agree .. Being at a bar and not owning the glass isn't fair game.

    Appearance: Light slightly hazy gold, minimal white cap with very little lacing.

    Aroma: Very nice melange of tropical fruit with a sense of ripe sweetness. No malt or hop presence that I can notice. Smells good though.

    Taste: A sense of slightly fizzy juice from tropical fruits picked at their peak. Mid palate tartness sets in and continues to the finish which is quick, clean, tart and a bit sweet without actually being sweet. Very pleasant, I believe someone who doesn't like beer would drink this without complaint.

    Texture: More texture than the taste would imply, I'd say medium.

    Overall: The brewer calls this one a crowd pleaser and I have to agree. It is mild, pleasant, fruity, tart, rich without actually being sweet, and well rounded. Not one for the beer enthusiast but should please the crowd for which it's brewed.

    Friday sippin...earlier than usual, but a day off is a day off BA's

    Enjoying this immensely...(as I had 5 or 6 of these last night, on tap, and it was most delicious)...in my backyard pool setting I will call "home" for the remainder of the day
    [​IMG]

    Pissy WBAYDN rant.
    ..:slight_smile:...as much as I can appreciate and admire the dedication to the cause (drinking/posting/sharing of awesome beers), but if you are sharing last night's experience today because of tech/format transition issues (or for any reason ever)...you could at least hold off until you have a beer in hand, in the moment...in the "N"ow...to respect and honor the fine BA's who respect and honor the communal objective of the thread. Love it when you share your past exploits, sincerely- no worries, as long as you link to the present. My therapist states you will find a greater standard of life enrichment, I promise...:wink:

    nuff said (or, too much said, as usual...but I was compelled by my own psychosis on the matter)...

    for the beer


    for the ear


    Cheers BA's....wishing ALL a phenomenal day!

    When I would have to choose for one beer until the end of the World, then this would be it I think.

    Tasteful pilsner kind of beer from Belgium. Goes very well with almost any type of food. Funny thing is that lager bottles, like this one in the picture, give a much better taste compared to the small bottles or cans.

    Cheers!
