I always try to find a themed song to the beer I am drinking in my music library
I think I am all caught up in my committments. Sadly, but I am usuallly well behind. Got one other BA interested but I have not committed.
Anyway, my next stop at Veil will be in two weeks since I will be out of town. If you are interested, I will buy a few extra and send them.
I trust that you like DIPAs. Sending a Veil gose is not a good idea. Too much fruit involved.
Thanks @spelingchampeon for this one. This is very nice. Nice head retention and lacing on the glass. Aromas and flavors of lemon, orange, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, grapefruit, mango, melon, red apple, passion fruit, berry, citrus zest, and light pepper/pine hops; with moderate wheat, white bread dough malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. A bit muted aromas. Very mild pine, zesty, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; creamy/bready/grainy malts and light sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering bitter dryness. Refreshingly drinkable, awesome soft feel for the style. Pretty unique hop profile from Calista, Loral, Mosaic, Chinook, and Amarillo; with balanced Voss Kveik yeast character. Very juicy and lightly dank hop/yeast complexity; perfectly balanced oat/wheat/pale malt backbone, with mild residual sweetness. Really well made NEIPA. 3.88
This was fantastic as expected. Amazing head retention and thick soapy lacing on the glass. Flavors of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of coconut, molasses, licorice, dark fruits, smoke, char, tobacco, and herbal hops. Similar aromas, a bit more fruity, touch of booze as it warmed. Light herbal/roast/char bitterness and bourbon/oak spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation and very full body; with a very creamy, silky, velvety mouthfeel that is fantastic. Slight slickness, sticky hops, chalky roast, oak tannins, and increasing dryness. No cloying/acrid flavors. Slightly increasing warmth of 12.6%, with zero barrel booziness lingering after the finish. Dangerously smooth sipping. Amazingly rich and well rounded imperial stout malt complexity; with perfect barrel integration. Not overly bitter, charred, tannic, or drying. Would get another, they are shelf sitters all over the place. 4.28
Doing a little Dust before crashing for the night. 36 years of up at 0400, hit ya like a ton of bricks some nights. Actually it's 0355 then a 10 minute snooze....
Nothing like a shower beer while washing the day's work grime away...
New Providence Philospher King IPA.
That sounds good to me!
Alvarado Street Wave Jammer DIPA. Last can.
It goes without saying my friend, no drinking and drlving. I may be an ass in all things life (guilty) but not dirinking and driving.
Revision IPA up next
18th Street Hunter.
...refreshed and relaxed, and now a bit of diversión loca (abetted with a splash of Hornitos Reposado)...
The absolute tits! As always!
Thanks @jzeilinger and finishing up this monster!
For all you fellow guitar geeks out there, a dear and long time friend of mine is retiring this week from Martin Guitar so I had to hit him up for one last plant tour before the end of the week with a few friends. Thankfully I was able to coax my long time friend to actually see Martin Guitar's private vault - a place locked away that only a few see (no exaggeration). It was one of those "National Treasure" movie moments (he has cataloged every one of these guitars for Martin, taken pictures, and have played / touched them =
What's currently in my glass and probably the evening closer is a fresh:
That is one immaculate glass.
Just got home from work a bit ago and put a can of
Schlenkerla Helles in a coozie and then found this pic from a few months ago and used it.
I was thirsty!
Boulevard Whiskey Barrel Imp Stout. This game has driven me to drinking...
Love that beer. And love it even more that a tall boy single is under $2 here.
