    Beer #7. The cheapest craft beer available to me here. Might squeeze in 1 more before my Sunday night detox.

    Last can of Righteous Ale (aged in Widow Jane barrels) - also last beer on-hand - so its all Scotch from here on out - prolly signaling my last post of the day...

    You'd be impressed/horrified at the damage I can do do a bottle of Scotch...
    An 18-year-old Scotch is a special occasion drink; but to me, every day I possess an 18-year-old Scotch is a special occasion... lol

    Happy Earth Day, BA...

    Playoff Hoops beer. Boston @ Milwaukee was a great game. Hoping GS @ SA will be the same:

    It took until April 22nd, but spring finally (big) sprang. Wasn't sure what to expect with the beer. Something I'm glad to try once, but wouldn't need a whole 4-pack of.

    FIVE 4.3-4.4 beers mark a great tasting week - April 21, 2018

    07740 - Simcoe | Carton
    4.4/5 rDev 0%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
    Long Branch 07740. Where my son was born, and when growing up, a boardwalk half way to Asbury Park, with games, rides, carnival, italian hogies. Congressman Frank Pallone's home town. 07740 is perfect with sausage and peppers and Italian food, they got it right. As good as all the odubs.
    Proud to be among the first reviewer of Simcoe 07740 (Long Branch - my son's birthplace). This one is near the top of the dubvariants along with 07750 Nelson. Carton tripling in size soon, well-deserved. Get to know this brewer. It's the water (and in my home town).
    Watch the brewer Augie talk food and beer play at http://tedxnavesink.com/project/augie-carton/
    Mineral notes due to the hard artesian well water they use. A must try and a great place to visit.
    A) Hazed blonde body sports a pure white finger pillowy head, that ascends an inched above the tulip glass rim, and laces clouds and dots while it rings the glass.
    S) Super fresh, juicy, citrus hops, tropical fruits, along with round orchard fruits of apple and grape, then more fruity malts, orange peels, and pine.
    T) Taste follows the smell. Zests your palate with orange citrus hops, lemon, apple, white wine, fruit malts, and tropical fruits. More pine resin, more oils.
    F) Long, lean, peppery, zingy finish. Chewy, creamy, medium bodied DIPA w moderate carbonation. Light bitterness, long finish, and pretty easy to drink. Cleansing, great with Italian boardwalk/carnival food... cleansing, long, and fresh.
    O) Try 24 if you can get it.

    Pocket Trick | Forgotten Boardwalk
    4.4/5 rDev +4.8%
    look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
    One of the best DIPAs in NJ, along with Carton.
    a) Pours viscous reminding me of hazed apple sauce on the simmer, dots lacey like apple sauce too.
    s) Apple juice, orchard fruit, and citrus. Peach, and fall wet grass between the peach trees.
    t) Tastes follow aroma, but it's a winner. I get pear candy first, on caramel malt sweetness, then pear, peach, apple puree, with floral and pine aromatics, cleaning up in a tight, bitter, cleansing finish.
    f) Delicate carbonation, smooth, sticky oils provide weight and mouth feel.
    o) I agree with BAer who said this is seductive brew. Try 24. Best of NJ/ east coast.

    So Anyway... | Springdale
    4.3/5 rDev +7.2%
    look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
    Loved this even more than BA-eras. Rattle N Hum NYC.
    A: Medium orange body, opaque, small wispy head and bits of lace.
    S: Lots of orange juice, big, bright citrus, marmalade that is tempered by a pine finish.
    T: As with the smell. More citrus fruit salad but it works, lands in a dry, powdery pile of pine laden snow.
    F: Medium body, smooth, finishes clean, crisp, bracing, spices.
    O: Just what you need after work to wake u up.

    Framinghammer - Cordon Rouge | Jack's Abby
    4.3/5 rDev +5.9%
    look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
    I'm going up a limb on this baltic porter, which is crazily original and soothing, tho strong.
    Sum greater than the parts. On tap rattle n hum 33 St NYC.
    a) opaque black-brown, with scant rosy-brown head that rings but neither laces nor lasts, still because of the ruby highlights it wins on color and depth.
    s) Light cocoa, lots of medicine and bar cabinet, with churchwood oak, Brandy, and incense. Too faint.
    t) Explodes in flavor following the nose to a higher place, one of the most interesting flavor profiles ever, as rich as any trappist or rare vos. Lots of medicine, bourbon, brandy, wood, incense. If you wish a short strong brew or a bed time brew before your sweetie, this ties the ribbon on it. 4.75!
    f) full bodied, kissy, wet kiss, slick and sticky on the lips.
    o) better as she warms (like your sweetie.)

    The Six - 51631 | Barrier
    4.3/5 rDev +0.9%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
    Pleased to be the sixth review of the 6 - 51631. A nice play on area codes (Zip codes having been conquered by Carton).
    A) Beautiful beer. Orange amber, rich white head, lots of sea foamy lace - as fitting for Barrier.
    S) Bright blaring citrus orchard and flower shop, with one odd component that’s a bit powdered tang or medicine cabinet.
    T) Lots of successive citrus fruit flavors, with that chalky, dusty feeling of a Smartie. leans into pleasant clean bitter finish. Juicy and chalky at once.
    F) Interesting. Clean bright finish, good food beer, almost too much except with salty oysters and clams. Juicy, tangy.
    o) Despite being light and playful this is serious beer. Try 24.

    Yesterday I stopped by Privateer Distilling in Ipswich, MA for a release of their bottled-in-bond rum. Wow, good stuff. Also, very impressive to see the warehouse, and I wish I had a straw with me.

    It's a lovely Spring Sunday in North Jersey and I'm taking full advantage. We'll be moving in a few weeks to our downsized, "empty nest" house. I'm looking forward to a smaller house and less property to maintain but one thing I'll really miss here is the woods and pond behind the house. It's so quiet and peaceful this afternoon with only the sounds of birds. A great place to enjoy a beer or two. Cheers, everyone!
