    Been almost 2 hours since the last post on #1671 and it's after midnight, reckon I'll kick off #1672. Had a friend over for a few, started off with a crowler of Noble Ale Works Nose Candy I brought back from CA. Nothing special, but good enough for a session. Nose was floral/citrusy/tropical, beautiful as advertised, nice west coast hop bite on the back end.

    Then we did a side by side with Lagunitas High Westified and 2017 KBS. We both liked the High Westified better, more barrel and coffee. The KBS, while still great, was more chocolatey, not much coffee or barrel in comparison.

    Got off work early today, decided to hang out at the beach for a little bit. Swam with a turtle for a little while, watched some dogs play, life didn't suck.

    Good morning BAs! Well, it's raining here in Frankenmuth, MI, as I mentally prepare for my first shift at the World Expo of Beer. Today's New Breakfast Beer is good. It's also the first beer I've been able to rate with a positive rDev in a while. After drinking some of @JackHorzempa's excellent homebrew pilsners, I was looking forward to trying to trying this. It's good, but I wouldn't call it a pilsner:

    The day started with the Mrs knocking over the recycling bin with the car, sending a good portion of the garbage inside into the street. Then, while taking more recycling out, I hear the four year old screaming bloody murder while sitting in bed, which wakes up her now cranky brother.
    Founders, take me away!

    Taking a moment to escape the madness of the world to enjoy a fine beer and the sounds of nature. I'm starting to detect a shift from the prominent coffee to more barrel revealing heavy oak.

    Have yourselves a great day! Some hippie music to set the mood.....

    Great news BAs and fellow morning imbibers - Mrs. Z's labs came back negative and she'll get discharged this afternoon!

    While I'm packing to move hotels (again) today, a celebratory eye-opener:



    Have a great Friday y'all!

    Ah, yes . . .

    Light gold leaning toward the yellow part of the spectrum. Very clear, light white head and good lacing.

    Clean light malt aroma with a sense of honeyed sweetness. Floral, spicy hops sing out.

    I get a fuller flavored sweet malt with hops riding on top like icing on a cake. Rich malt on entry the flavor being more prominent than hops but not by much. Noble hops with their spicy floralness are along for the full ride. Finish is clean with a charming hop presence in the aftertaste.

    A bit fuller and heavier than Euro pilsners. Sort of a New World beefier version of the original Czech model. Is this the real deal, a true Pilsner style? Well, it'll do till something better comes along.

    I feel like a hostage...to this book. Still revising, still editing. What day is it? What's that? It doesn't matter you say? Have a great day all... mine consists of edits. yum. Listened to 5-6 hours of Soundgarden and Cornell yesterday...still bummed about that. That music was an important part of my grad school listening diet in the 1990s. Onward.Oh well, cheers anyway, with a little Superfan thrown in to keep it real.

    I'm moving on.. are you?
    Old classic to new age IPA!
    The mouthfeel alone on this beer is worth every praise it gets, not to mention the burst of oranges!!
    Every sip tells one of the effort the brewer put in to achieve something that not many had before.
    Cheers and happy Friday BAs!

    And I'm pairing this with a snack of roast chicken (all carved up,) honey crisp apples and melted Manchego cheese on top :slight_smile:
    You know I'm LAARGE by now.....
