    It's one of those early morning's (1:45 AM MST) when one just can't get back to sleep, so may as well surf the BA web site, try a new beer, and then catch up on some light reading...

    ...and then nod off an hour before my wife gets up for work...

    ...but at least today is a day-off for me...



    An enjoyable IPA, nicely balancing a tasty and warm malt base with a great dried fruit aroma and a surprisingly bigger hop bitterness punch than what the current BA notes might suggest.

    Good morning BAs! Another damp day here in NW PA, but that's OK because I'll be working inside. Today's New Breakfast Beer, courtesy of @Bum4ever and NBS BIF #8:



    Best I've had from Mikkeller, so far.

    Morning break . . .

    Nice light golden color with white cap and lacing.

    Lovely aroma of dry, crackery malt and floral, spicy hops.

    Taste is hop forward with a firm bitterness that also develops a hop brightness as the beer warms up a bit. Malt flavor is dry, crackery and bready, yet malt plays a secondary role here supporting the hops. Not as malty as traditional Pils but I'm getting the impression that old style is not the goal here. Call it an updated take on the Pils style. Not a diminished one, or for that matter a better one, just different in it's own way and it's good.

    Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

    Overall this is quite good. It would not be my first choice if I had a hankering for a traditional Pils but it certainly has a place of choice for a very good anytime beer with meals or company, or both.

    I managed to fall back to sleep around 4 AM and woke up again a little after 7 AM. My wife is at work and Rocket the Wonder Dog is patiently waiting for his walk (once I'm dried off from my shower and this beer is consumed)...



    This is a re-visit of this beer (first reviewed in 2014). I was a bit more satisfied with this go around. The head appeared thicker, richer and the aroma with the taste exhibiting a fuller toffee-like quality to it.

    Had my first ever Sam Adams IPA and was MUCH better than I was anticipating. Picked these up a few weeks back and they've been sitting there as I was in no rush to try it. Decided to crack one open on the early side today, 11:30 AM and I was impressed. I will definitely buy again.

    A brisk early morning run followed by a light breakfast and sports TV means it's now time for a beer. I've no clue how old this bottle of Arcadia barrel aged Cereal Killer barleywine is? I'm guessing 3-4 years? While the feel is flat it does exhibit some wonderful notes of sweet caramel, cherries and bourbon. A hint of tartness in the finish may be an indication that father time has taken hold? I'm glad I didn't wait any longer.

    Light hazy gold color with white cap and good lacing.

    Aroma of fresh yeast bread and ripe tropical fruits. I also get citrus (grapefruit) and something resinous.

    Flavor on entry is hop forward joined by bready malt mid palate. Hops linger for awhile in the aftertaste with a mild citrus bitterness.

    Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

    Overall it's a fair stab at a hazy, citrusy, piney hop laden brew with enough malt to make a statement.

    Still have a few of these in the fridge.
    They change but are still tasty.
    I have the day off, so a few chores to do and some Man In The High Castle to watch.

    Elevation's "Mosaic IPA"...somehow, I don't think I'm going to be on the phone today wrestling about my wife's Tricare primary care manager reassignment...



    The beer is fine but perhaps a bit dated (canned August 30th, 2018). Looks good, smell is rather subdued but fruity and citrusy, the flavor rather short on malt base highlights but certainly delivering some fine hop bitterness, and the mouthfeel medium in heaviness, dry and sharp overall.

    This is pretty malty (in a good way) normally but with 2 months on it, the Flight is waning and the malt is overtaking. Still...not bad.

    I’m mentally and physically drained from all this dog nonsense. I’m sick of the woods, I’m sick of my bike, I’m sick of calling people, I’m sick of everything right now. Worst part is I feel guilty whenever I’m not at work and not looking for him. But, I need a nap.
