    Peterson showed up. I just haven't seen the skins do anything all year, but we are trying our best to do less...

    One of my favorite films. The same thing could happen in West Virginia or Kentucky. A cautionary tale.

    I cannot remember the last time I felt good about the Redskins. Probably back to the John Riggins era. Favorite vid is 4th and one with Riggins. There is actually a beer with that name. I did post it to BA about a year ago but the NFL sent me a warning.

    I'm bored with beer, which maybe a good thing for my health and liver. I went to the beer store last night, almost walked out empty handed. didn't see anything interesting even thou the beer fridges are getting near empty, mostly nothing left but turds that I will pour out tonight. In the end I walked out with 6 pack of Bell's Kalamazoo Stout. It's been a few years since I had this one last. I'm drinking one right now, it's pretty good, old school maybe but I'm bored with beer and this hits the spot, going back to the past beer wise maybe worth a try. Just got done with a major October fest beer sampling and I'm burned out on it.
    Not really interested in wet/fresh hop Ipa's (done that been there). Next up it's Holiday beers, but every year I become seemingly less interested in them also. The best news is that Bock season will be here soon...........I went all out last bock season thinking it could be my last, we will see

    NBS X-Post #2 - Sour edition

    Incredible milkshake sour! Awesome head retention/lacing for a sour. Awesome ruby/purple color. Aromas and flavors of huge juicy/tart/tangy blackberry, raspberry, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, red/green apple, melon, red grape/wine, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate vanilla, cream, wheat, cracker, white bread malts; light pepper, lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; very creamy/silky/grainy malts/lactose; some lactic acid, and fruit tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy/tannic dryness, no pucker. Very smooth, pretty refreshing, not overly lactic, 6%. Huge fan of this stuff. Super jammy berries; with balanced Lacto complexity, and lactose/pale/wheat malts against acidity. Superb style execution. 4.28

    Sip of Sunshine. A hell of a good IPA courtesy of @EMH73 . Thanks dude. I was running out of good beer until I got your trade. Saved my life. OK too melodramatic but it did save me a trek to Triple Crossing or Veil for awhile.

    Magnify Maine Event - canned 10/9

    A New England Style IPA brewed with Citra and Simcoe

    I love this beer and can't believe it's brewed down the block from my house.

    World class single IPA

    Dude, I was watching my Redskins vs the dreaded Cowboys and decided I did not need the heart palpatations so turned it off. So now BA has to put up with me.

    Bourbon. Damn, I would love some but got this neurologist appointment and thought it would be a good idea not to go there hungover. But I can be persuaded.

    Hope your work week goes OK.

    1. NBS.....Lets go for two here. At least.
      Why not my first New Mexico beer?
      La Cumbre Elevated India Pale Ale
      Pours a crystal clear copper color with an off white head of about 3/4" that lasts for a few and leaves spotty lacing. Watching the bubbles rise and the clarity is really a beautiful pour.
      Smell is sweet tangerine, pineapple, lemon oil, pine and some grapefruit. Aroma is powerful and really enjoyable.
      Taste is a light caramel malt base highlighted by sweet citrus, some tropical notes and fine grapefruit and slighty bitter pine.....and it lasts slightly coating the tongue with some oily fresh hop notes. Flavor is bold and full. Yum Yum.
      Feel medium carbonation is spot on and the finish is semi dry with that wonderful slickness.
      Awesome brew. A "midwest" type IPA is what comes to mind. It feels like a cross between Bells Two Hearted and Jai Alai - but not as "tropical" as the latter. Thanks @Dwood1466! [​IMG]

    Giving Avery Rumpkin another try. In the past I've found it so sweet, it was as if they filled the bottle with sugar and then poured in whatever amount of beer that the sugar would absorb. This one is much better than the three I had last year, still sweet but not cloying. I like this as well as their Pump[KY]n though it has a paltry 16.9% ABV compared to 18.8% in Pump[KY]n.

    Stay strong and away from the brown liquors. Your Redskins just had a strip sack for a TD. You might want to watch.

    Why is it that guys can walk around shirtless but girls can't?

    That's just downright sexist.

    I'm really happy that i'm able to match y'all with the Born Yesterday! Of course I had to go to our Metro Mart to get it. The ABC corporate stores here are so lame. They still have a Green Flash Palate Wrecker with a best by date of 09/2017 on the shelf.......
