    Howdy Sawdog and thanks for getting us started.

    La Trappe - Quadrupel. 10%. It’s strong yet the alcohol is IMO well hidden. Delicious stuff.

    Good morning and good afternoon BAs! Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day here in NW PA - no rain until after I hit the sack. I had the yard shortened by 1200 - despite it being slightly damp, it only took two hours. Mrs. lizard got some more "stuff" done prior to our up-coming Scotland trip. We had supper with our son and still managed to get some more flowers planted before dark - overall, a fairly productive day! Hopefully, today will be more of the same!

    Today's New Breakfast Beer:



    I'm extremely pleased with this brew - despite the price point ($ 0.85/fl oz) it is an excellent drinking beer - I could easily swill a few bombers daily!

    I'm trying to decide between righteously hoppy or richly malty and I may have to toss a coin.

    Righteously hoppy won out . . .

    [​IMG]

    Hazy light gold color with white cap and lacing.

    Aroma of dank hops which is a term I rarely use but it fits here. I also get some hits of resin and something like grapefruit rind. No malt to speak of.

    Taste is hop city which isn't surprising at 87 IBU. Don't know if I can taste hop levels that high but if I can this is my limit. Not flavor limit, I rather like it, just as far as my palate will wander in the hop shock department. I am noticing more grapefruit influence as the taste builds (and build it does) toward the finish. Surprisingly little bitterness for this hop level, I've had a much more bitter bite from lower IBU brews, and there seems to be a richness here to the hop intensity.

    ...and it's that time of year again, when a lot of us on the Front Range catch the apricot saison fever. :wink: This went really well with our omelet this morning...
    Cumbre's Fievre d'Abricot... one of the few saisons I seek out on a regular basis. And the head retention on this was ridiculous...Cheers!
    [​IMG]

    P.S. La Cumbre gets bonus points, too, for using French on their bottle. Makes it extra claaaasssyy...

    One more before boarding. Short pour. I’m in a middle seat and the last thing I want to do is bother my aisle buddy. The older I get more I need to think about these things. Never used to be a worry.

    If Kane Head High isn’t the perfect IPA then I don’t know what is. It’s sweet, dry, bitter, tropical and piney all at the same time.
