    Last of my NBS contributions for the week, but probably not my last beer for the night. About to start cleaning the car out, which requires a (D)IPA.

    Have a good friend over to help drink down my cellar. Starting with this 2012 cellar pull and it aged extremely well. This version is the 12 Year Elijah Craig Barrel and it's pretty darn impressive!!

    Gravity Check IPA from Building 8. Great mouthfeel. Like the 5.5% ABV. But even though I like a bitter backbone, this one is just a bit too harsh.

    NBS X-Post #1:

    Officially done wasting my time doing introductions on any thread. It's been obvious by now that most people don't care about me, or what I do in my life anymore. Such is life. Will keep reviewing beers though. I've been posting the same review format for years now....

    New Beer:

    Delicious stuff. This is a fruited Berliner and not a APWA. Nice head retention/lacing for the style. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy mangoes, melon, fruit skin, lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, red/green apple, hay, and grass; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bready malt sweetness; light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness and fruit/wheat tang on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body, and moderately crisp/clean finishing. Creamy/bready/grainy wheat; some lactic acid and fruit tang in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy fruit dryness. No puckering sourness. Very flavorful/refreshing, 4.5%. A bit sweeter than expected, but it goes down insanely easily. Awesome balance of juicy mangoes, Lacto, and pale/wheat malts. Not overly sweet from lingering dryness. Amazing summer brew. 3.95
    [​IMG]

    Awesome SIPA. Amazing lasting head retention and thick soapy lacing on the glass. Aromas and flavors of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, watermelon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel malt sweetness; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body, and moderately crisp finishing. Balanced creamy/bready/grainy malts and sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Some resins/rinds, light-moderate increasing bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Very flavorful and pretty refreshing, 4.7%. Great body for the ABV from Munich malts. Citra showcase; with added Galena, El Dorado, and Centennial. Very juicy, dank, and earthy balanced hop complexity; with a nice bready Munich malt backbone; minimal residual sweetness. They have not disappointed with the series yet, this was my favorite one. 4.13

    It's a cool, rainy Sunday afternoon in North Jersey. A welcome relief to this week's heat. It's a perfect day to crack this 2013 American Barleywine courtesy of @bstyle. It's very good!

    Yesterday I rode my bike so many miles in 90 degree heat. Then I got up under my house so I can tell a carpenter where the rotting joists are. And I washed and waxed my truck. Watched no sports (pro cycling on the NBC Sports Gold app don't count?) Productive weekend.

    I am liking this more now than the week I bought it a month ago.

    This is true but only since I entered puberty. My Redskins are looking good so far tonight. Let us see how can turn it around into a loss.

    I do not mean to torture my friend @CanConPhilly but this is an amazing Triple Crossing DIPA. My last one of these. They brew it again. I will buy again. And up to the max allowed.
