    My last sip of sunshine, it's definitely going down hill at 2 months old, but is still very good.

    Damn fine big beer here.

    Rated a year ago today and reviewed now!

    Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over an amber body with some sticky lacing. Nose of tropical fruit, candied fruit, pine, and a touch of floral hops. Hoppy and a little sweet on the palate with a fairly smooth finish. Some bitterness, less than expected for sure. Nice mouthfeel and overall a great value on big a beer such as this!

    Weren't you an accountant??!? o_O:confused::confused:
    ;)

    Ok, I happened to glance at the upper right of the BA screen and noticed I bypassed 5000 posts. Shit! I spend too much the right amount of time on here, apparently. I think mildly apropos that this "milestone" hit at this later EDT time, as I am sure the posts tallied much quicker on some of the LNBA nights I've spent on here (that were later than now, and have been fewer in number recently). Anyhow, a beer for the "occasion":

    First, a shot of whiskey, because that's what LNBAs often do after/during discussions.

    Second, an as expected infected bottle of BCBS. Oh well, it will still be imbibed. Cheers to all the WBAYDN faithful, and extra cheers to the LNBAs, just because!

    I've been blessed to try a lot of great beers from a lot of generous BAs recently. This one is no exception. Thanks, @Lingenbrau!

    Maybe a little early for LNBA (based on the fact I haven't seen @joe1510, @SammyJaxxxx, or @Rootscipio among others yet) but you are right. That's how we roll.

    Wow!! You and I took completely different routes ;).

    Well, you should have access to DD a little more than I, the "competitor" works better for me. Maybe we'll have to coordinate a Union meetup one weekend to get some DD after I grab some OTWOA. ;)

    Whiskey/bourbon. Dude you are my best friend. Yes it is true that I was an accountant but hope you folks do not count it aganst me.

    As an aside, which gets me in trouble with the BA police, if there any folks that want free financial opinions I am here. To be clear, I do not want any compensation cause it will fuck up my personal financial strategy. Just trying to help.

    Agreed - this is not your father's LNBA, though nowadays.... 10pm is the new 12AM :confused:

    I do miss some of the LNBA convos wit many a BA - @5EKF still shows up occasionally, not to forget @aoampm and probably a few others :oops:.

    I met him once at a radio station anniversary party a few years back. He gave me his Apple Records business card. Really cool guy. Sad to see him go.
