    Good Morning BA
    I missed out on this the first time around, but managed to grab the 2nd to last single yesterday at the only shop in town that had it. Bottled 4/7/17 and tasting great.

    Good morning and Happy 4/20 Thursday BA's! If you're into that sorta thing, great. If not, great. A lot of buzz about it around these parts this year as it finally became "legal" recently. But you know what, this is a site about beer so let's focus on that!!! It's time for the Glass of the Day Awards!

    GotD:
    Appropriately themed for the day :sunglasses:, cheers and congrats for your very first GotD @eppCOS for showing us all how to properly take down yer "medicine"... all 24 tablespoons of it! Diggin the can carrier still on the can :wink:.
    2nd: I feel if I don't finally give an award out to this recently well used and proper Pliny the Elder glass from @Barracudas , that I will be robbing him from such an honor. The Staff has taken note on that new hurricane glass too my friend :wink:.
    3rd: And another pairing coming in proper and classic, his second day in a row in the winners circle, @FBarber for this Weihenstephaner weisse glass. Totally agree with you on the beer itself too.

    Honorable mention goes out to a relatively newcomer to the thread, @rhipsher for this sturdy looking chalice (margarita glass? :astonished:).
    Cheers everyone, and I will see you all soon!

    GotD.

    Something moreish with lunch . . .

    [​IMG]

    Aroma of herbal, piney hops with some malt lurking in the background. Brewer says the aroma is fruity but I get herbal.

    Taste is hop forward and lots of it. Heavy hop flavor just like the scent, herbal and resinous. Malt is in there but it seems like I feel it more than taste it. Same hop flavors to the finish and a degree of piney hop bitterness is present in the aftertaste.

    An old Bastard from 9/30/15 that still has some legs. Integrated with vanilla, oak, caramel and noticeable alcohol heat. The wildflowers are springing up every day with the warm and rainy weather. It's starting to rain again as I type this!

    Another place and another hotel beer. Now enjoying a Jupiler and got me a glass this time.
    Doesn't look like much, but it's 'vintage'. And I'm happy I can keep it.

    The glass is from brewery 3 Hoefijzers (3 horse shoes, started in 1628), a city brewery from the city of Breda, it's closed down some years ago (thanks to Inbev).

    Cheers!

    I carefully followed the instructions on the cap and it yielded a very nice pour. The storms have passed, the sun is peeking through the clouds and the temperature is slowly dropping.
