    Got up this morning and thought I'd celebrate being alive . . .

    3.98/5
    look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

    Nice clear light golden color with moderate white cap and lacing.

    Aroma is primarily resinous hops with a darker, stronger hop underlayer that is pungent and sharply herbal. Floral scent is present in a heavier way but not intrusive, something almost spicy but with a quick cutoff.

    Flavor is certainly hop forward and lasting throughout with a tapering off in the aftertaste. Malt is present and carries the hops along but contributes more to the body than the flavor. It all works together but this is a hop show and the hops do sing out. Malt appears as the brew warms and hop flavor develops more fully. Not more hop flavor but one of more depth and intensity. For all that the hops don't cross over into bitterness territory but stay within bounds which is a rather neat balancing act.

    Texture is light medium but is certainly no lightweight.

    Brewer says they use 6 hop varieties for a combined total of 69 IBU. This combination works well to produce a rather pleasant if limited dimensional flavor. I mean, it is labeled Hoppy Birthday so one shouldn't be surprised that it is a brew that features hops. Billed as a session ale at 5.25% it is that and a refreshing one as well. Sometimes I think a "Session IPA" might be an ingenious solution to a non existent problem but as session ales go this one works well.

    Finally fully recovered from some boozy misadventures on Saturday. Getting right back on the horse with a fantastic freaking lunch at the Engine Room, and whetting my whistle with a BP Sculpin on nitro.

    Lunch has been contemplated and cooked. Some chili cheese fries topped with hot sauce and chopped cilantro. And the most important part of the meal, some Half Acre Daisy Cutter. It's an easy drinking pale ale with lots of flavor, reminds me of MBC Mo, though Mo is definitely hoppier. If I lived out towards the windy city Daisy Cutter would be a regular.

    Finished a F-W Velvet Merlin lurker, that I just wasn't in the mood for last night. (after I opened it, of course. ; ) ) Still tasting good. Now on to this :

    My first Luponic Distortion.
    Quite delicious. Beautiful golden color and interesting combo of piney, floral and citrusy hop notes. Overall a decent easy drinking yet flavorful brew.
    Pairing with roast chicken (glazed with reduced pan jus) and roast cabbage.
