Dat glass has to match the age of that vid!
Your music selection is as subtle as always.
Sharing a Ve De Keizer Blauw with the GF:
She didn't like my "share" ratio, which is typical. I offered some from my glass, but she declined. I'm guessing next week this will come up as one of my insensitivities. That's probably the wrong word, @GrumpyGas.
I recall way back in the day my parents wouldn't sign off on a Prince album from Columbia House because it had an "Explicit" warning on it. It wasn't this song, but...
Next up, a throwback they would've likely disapproved of as well, but a throwback I haven't heard in a long time:
I haven't had the beer in a while, either, and it's not losing it's standing as a great offering.
Always excellent, one of my favorite classic tasting Midwest IPAs. Flavors of bright/juicy grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, and pine hops; with moderate caramel, toasted biscuit malt balance; and floral, grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus peel bitterness. Balanced sticky/resinous hops and bready creaminess in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing resin dryness, no hop astringency. Touch of lingering rind. Chinook, Cascade, Centennial. Can't go wrong with those hops. Great malt balance without being overly sweet. Need to keep this in the fridge more often. Been grabbing singles a lot more recently than I was last year.
Delicious White IPA. Aromas and flavors of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, red apple, melon, coriander, peppercorn, clove, citrus peel/rind, pine, and light banana hops/yeast; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bready malts; herbal, floral, grassy hop and yeasty earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, herbal, grassy bitterness; and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body, and moderately crisp finishing. Balanced bready/grainy malts and sticky/resinous/rindy hops/yeast in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing bitter/spicy dryness, minimal hop astringency. Very smooth, not overly aggressive, 6.4%. Just a touch too bitter, spicy, and drying than I'd prefer. They nailed this for the style expectations. Some breweries seem to think making an IPA with wheat makes the style. This has the Wit yeast and spices as it should be. Great balance of yeast, spices, and dank/vibrant/earthy hop complexity; with a solid pale/wheat malt backbone. This style is in need of a revival nationwide. Loved all of the stuff from North Pier so far.
Thanks for recognizing proper glassware.
Congrats and cheers!!
Referend Bier Blendery is amazing.. Check them out!
All too aware that this may be my last Pliny in quite a while.

Just finished supper, now time for Dessert.
Also, thanks for this fine glassware @AllHopsMatter
The word is right, finally. But, as usual, the tunes are wrong.
Loved all the Fun Size variants, but this was the weakest one. Wish it was a sweet Raspberry instead it came off tart
Sipping on Pure Project’s Clouds of Delusions. This DIPA has got quite a kick on the hops. Cheers BA!
Earlier, a Lagunitas/Shorts Passion Grass, decent but not $12+ a sixer worthy IMHO. Now SN/Weihenstephan Oktoberfest with some Pre-season Cowboys footall

You can only expect so much from me ask my GF, or Phil or Joe or anyone else I know, really.
