    Good morning people! Looks like a lazy post summer hangover today. A hot humid one in the forecast and it could be the last heatwave we see for 8 months around here. While I'm excited for some NFL action, it's always a little sad watching the empty beaches and the leaves slowly change. I love fall, but it's a daily reminder that winter is around the corner.

    This 09/30/15 bottle is in a good place now. A nice balance of bourbon and sticky sweetness. It won't be long for the new batch. Let's have a short and sweet week!

    Good morning BAs! Thank you @Prager62 for finally starting this thread. Today's breakfast beer was:

    Sort of apricoty and definitely sour - high pucker factor.

    Alright, so it's eight months old... but. I've had two in my fridge for ages because I was sick of HopSlam last winter, and also meant to save one to try later anyway.

    It's actually not terrible.

    I've only had it once, but I can't imagine getting sick of it! :slight_smile: Had it in New York in March and it was by far the best new beer I tried there (out of 47 different new ones... In five days...).

    From the day before, spent some time at the beach. Enjoyed La Perouse from Maui Brewing. Great beach beer.
    [​IMG]

    My dog came along with me, she loves going to the beach. It was a pain to get her over here, but definitely worth it.
    [​IMG]

    When I got home, I got to enjoy a beer with the wifey type
    [​IMG]

    And finally, from a couple days ago, a new beer from Beer Lab HI, Tart Saison with Raspberries. This thing is beautiful. Beer Lab is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries here. Most of their beers are one offs.

    Okole maluna y'all!

    Alesmith IPA is probably my all-time favorite beer. Just the quintessential west coast IPA...

    Evening from the UK, after a hard day on the tools I'm more than ready for something from Belgium.. A Tongerlo Prior, a triple extra @ 9% from Haacht is more than going to hit the spot!

    Time for a late lunch break with The Oracle after a couple of hours picking hops in the blazing sun. It's not an ideal day for the task, but the heat is drying them fast and there's rain in the forecast the remainder of the week. A strange year as they seem to be growing in waves with this being the second and there appears to be a lesser third with flowers still forming on the bines. Passing these on to a friend for his next home brew.

    This is a tasty brew. I've had several BBA beers recently where you can't taste the bourbon but here you can, along with layers of chocolate.
