Gonna post a beer and food pic next but this song is making me crazy (ok crazier).
a voice over from a well known male enhancement commercial often played during sporting events comes to mind ...

Puh-lease, thats at least a !!
420 inspired! You believe that?
Martin House Brewing
The Acheron is a little like the Avery Uncle Jacob's Stout.
I could make it up by apologizing and saying I wanted to go see the thing with her. I would rather she just hate me for a while.
Ok, but seriously I'm super jealous ...
Good evening BA, hope everyone had a god Thursday. Got a nice haul of new beers in after work today. Crazy weather out there, got drenched just walking outside to my car after work. The sun seems to be poking out now though.
Fantastic gose! Aromas and flavors of big tart/sour lemon, lime juice/zest, grapefruit, pear, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, graham cracker, herbal, floral, and light pepper/lacto funk. Moderate fruity/lactic sourness and light peppery spice on the finish. Light-medium bodied; balanced lactic acidity and salinity in the mouthfeel; solid grainy wheat creaminess. Moderate increasing lactic dryness; lightly puckering but never astringent. Super flavorful for 4%, with awesome balance between the key limes and classic gose flavors. Very crisp and refreshing, despite the fairly strong lactic acidity and drying finish. I liked this a bit more than the regular. 4.2
Really nice IPA. Fantastic head retention and thick lacing on the glass. Crystal clarity. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, and pine hops; with some toasted biscuit, light honey malt balance; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine/rind/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied; sticky/resin/rindy hops with a fair amount of bready/grainy malt in the mouthfeel. Quickly increasing resin dryness; touch of hop astringency, but nothing major. Great vibrant hop flavors and solid malt backbone. Very easy drinking. Just a tad too aggressive on the pine resin dryness, this is something I would buy again. C and Simcoe hops. I got this in Ohio last weekend, it's only a matter of time before they show up here. 3.93
Awesome Old ale! Aromas and flavors of huge caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, toffee, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, raisin, plum, fig, date, pear, apple, red grape, and herbal/peppery hops. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Medium-full bodied bready/grainy creaminess; slight sticky hops and chalky roast, with a bit of increasing dryness. Very smooth sipping with minimal warming 8.5%. Wonderful malt complexity with complementing yeast character and balancing hop bitterness. They use Domino brown sugar in this and it works perfectly with the malt profile. Absolutely spot on for the style, I loved this. 4.1
IMO it's a great IPA that deserves more notice than it gets.
Not quite Waldo's, but fine by me
Drink well Advocates
Enjoying a lovely BA stout while nursing a possibly broken but hopefully just sprained wrist. Cheers!
Evening all! Starting the night off with a y-en-stefan Vitus in some damn fine proper glassware if I do say so myself ...
I've got way too many fresh IPAs in my fridge that need to be drunk, but all I want these days is weizenbocks and kolschs ...
Documentation, not so much.
Lienenkugel Summer Wheat at the lobby bar.
Best of few options.
Back at the apartment with a howller of Miles of Piles NE IPA from Columbus House. Tried their DIPA, pretty good. Had to to get out of there, stumbled into trivia night. I go that place for the quiet Working on the howler.. My bone I will throw to you 4-20 Stoners
Both versions for the ages
I had just one out of my six yesterday and posted a review this morning https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/25327/78517/?ba=BJB13#review
I agree with you. I think it's solid for a DIPA. I drank a Double Duckpin right after it to compare and found them pretty similar. Nice to have good local options to get fresh.
Had that on tap recently - quite tasty, but leaning more fruity on the whole than I prefer.
My last can of Swish for the season. Thanks again @Hoppy_Time!
A great IPA from 3 Magnets out of Olympia WA. A sip is mouthful of citrus rind. Crisp dry finish, very clean.
Other Half Daydream in Green 8.1%
I got tired
Nice side by side! I've got my beers in the fridge at mom's house, and will do an "aged " comparison also when I return to WV this weekend. I'm particularly interested in seeing how these compare several weeks out (both are great fresh, and both can sit on the grocery shelves for months! Where I live). I got mine a few weeks ago at home in St. Pete, put the in the RV fridge, and have been well cared for, but are not "fresh". Cheers!
Maybe a Throwdown is in order
I've actually never thought to do that one. I think it would be interesting - both are similar enough (I'd guess DD is more citrus/fruity and OTWOA a little more spicy going on memory) and both have some batch variation, so it could be like Wulver and Backwoods for me, multiple Throwdowns that don't get old .
Share at @oach, beer #1.
Happy 420, just got back from Hoppin Frog had some Amarillo hopped Killa Vanilla, not bad for the dankness after missing out on Dankster Frog, coming home to this, pretty good!
Have you been in retirement or on a diet ??
Yea, this story made me literally LOL. (mainly cause I'd have the exact same response) Thanks
First up Narrow Gauge OJ Run, thanks @bstyle, cheers!
I cannot follow. Too fucking crazy.
Back out on the deck with a Brown Shugga to enjoy the night air.
I remember this having less hop flavor and it's going fast!
Breaking into my Ommegang Witte #ProperEnough glassware for this new local Lamplighter double witbier. Really like the glass actually. This beer is pretty nice too. Time to get lit. Cheers!
Next up Drop Art I could drink a case of this by the pool. @vabeerguy this may be coming your way!!
You know me well!!!
You watching this bonus game @PuppyClawz ?
I'm calling it. Redlegs-O's World Series. #ghostoffrankrobinson
One and done tonight. I decided to go very light.
Dragon Blade from Valkyrie Brewing fits the bill.
3.54/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
This beer pours a light, clear, golden color. The head was frothy, white, 1 finger, and didn't last long at all.
The nose is very mild. I do get a bit of sweetness, and a slight malt aroma.
The taste is sweet upfront. Slight malt. Slight bitterness also.
Feels not too watery, but a fairly light beer.
Overall, this is a non obtrusive beer. It might be very delicious on a hot day.
Still my #1 favorite (and yes, each time I post this I do take a new pic). Drinking my last of the first 12 I got when it was released since @bret717 hooked me up with another 6 today. Good dude.
CHEERS GANG AND THANKS TO ALL THAT SENT ME WELL WISHES ABOUT OUR DOG ❤️❤️
Sadly tomorrow may be the day
So a toast to our Tooty ( Two Face) and a pic of her this past Sunday on her birthday, which was Easter..
Her pal celebrated the party too
FOUNDERS SUMATRA MOUNTAIN
IMPERIAL BROWN ALE
These were canned 2/28. When my dad brought them home from FL I did a fist pump
That Selfie Entitlement went fast. This Sundog is insane, should absolutely be hyped out the ass for trade bait. Almost like a Tired Hands Milkshake but less fruit smoothie and more beer!
How do you come off a Waldo's? You drink a sweet and spicy hopped pilsner, that's how. Cheers!
Unfortunately that was my last DD. I may try to grab some more to do a simultaneous comparison. Dig a little deeper and see how good your memory is. Throwdown!
