    Gonna have a quickie after a somewhat hard night of work. A 2013 bottle...definitely kept this one too long. Hints of caramel and brown sugar, really smooth, but pretty blah. The aftertaste kinda leaves something to be desired too. Enjoy what’s in your glass today BA

    Popped a bottle of Ithaca Beer Co's Flower Power IPA. I generally am turned off by things with hippy marketing, but this is an excellent beer. Gonna make me buy a pair of bell bottoms. It has a tremendous appearance. It's full of tropical & citrus fruits (pineapple/mango/papaya/grapefruit/orange peel). I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for this one in the future.

    Deep amber gold color with good white cap and lacing.

    Aroma of rich, toasty malt and honey. The honey, fermented with the malt I understand, does come across as honey like but is rather dry giving off only a sense of sweetness without being overly sweet. There is a low key hop presence but this brew isn't about hops so they are there just for balance. Finish is clean with touches of sweetness in the aftertaste. Taste is more roasty than toasty malt but without roasted bitterness.

    Beaver Island's 'Sweet Miss' (thanks to @MNChristine). I fine beverage to savor after shoveling snow off the property this cold, blustery morning...



    3.83/5 rDev +1.9%
    look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

    Dark brown body topped with a thick, frothy and sticky light tan head; rings of foam circling the glass. The smell contains rich elements of sweet chocolate and cocoa with some charred grain notes. Gently sweet flavors of cocoa and chocolate dominate the taste with some low-key grain husk and hop bitterness in the background. Heavy body; smooth and silky with a nice sweetness on the palate.

    A well-made classic stout styling, balanced and flavorful and very easy drinking.

    Morning, Bar Mates,

    Snowy day here in Illinois, prepping for potentially record-setting cold tomorrow night through Thursday.

    Got the snow cleared from the driveway, sharing this with the wife:

    Excellent chocolate roast, very present medium barrel, and chocolate finish.

    Might have to open another Firestone Walker bottle later...

    Enjoy the weather BAs and be safe!

    Citrus, orange, tangerine, mango, some white grape, lemon all backed by a dry cracker background. A little sharp though, maybe hop burn. Could use a little more carbonation to make it bounce and shine.

    Cheers!

    Balcony works great for quick-chilling beer. Besides the snow the outside temperature is about - (minus) 10 Celcius / 20 Fahrenheit.

    I'm having my 2nd ever beer from Oskar Blues. I really, really liked the 1st one and the second one is following suit. It's Hotbox, a coffee porter. It smells & tastes like black coffee with a touch of chocolate. They advertise dark fruits, but I'm not getting them. May be too subtle to come through the strong black coffee. I'm sorry I didn't wait for Wifey to open this one. She would absolutely love the everloving hell out of this one. Guess she'll have to wait until I pick up more.

    Home now with a Pipeworks “Velocity of Light” on the balcony (sunny 58) while the dogs enjoy some sunshine:



    Excellent NEIPA. Juicy full and fluffy with out being overbearing; weedy lemongrass nose; dank, weedy,garlic, lemon, orange with grapefruit pith bitterness; huge pillowy white head, long cap retention and heavy lacing. Best part is I would gladly drink another (and the artwork is pretty cool, too). Thanks @Number1Framer for this awesome beer!

    First time having 11.

    It's okay, but not as good as 10 or 8 or 5 or ... well fine, I don't really remember them all anymore. But this one has a half-citrus/half-tropical vibe. But it finishes far more bitter than I remember any Luponic Distortion before it.

    Went through more medical testing today only to find out that I need (wait for it) even more medical testing. These past few years have been something else, but it could always be worse. I could be working. Time for an IPA. Cheers!

    Moving on to a beer that, like Parabola, I received in a trade from a friend:

    [​IMG]

    Absolutely, yes. Loads of caramel/butterscotch, light booze finish, and a touch heavier viscosity than I was expecting. #drinkdownthecellar is in full force!

    Cheers, BAs!

    These are the Haze of our Lives. This beer makes a comeback with its original hop-bill (Southern Passion, African Queen/J-17), but they also threw in Vic Secret. Does that mean African hops are now available again after that whole ABInBev debacle?

    This one isn't as good as the OG version (although in cans, Batch 2 had major issues with that hop burn - see Joe's Arcade review) which I got to try on tap and enjoyed. I think this is considered B4. Canned 1/15/2019.

    It's got that earthy/grassy/spicy character of African hops that's a little bizarre. My first can during release week had a whallop of bitterness. Now that it's almost two weeks later, it's mellowed out and tasting a little more juicy.
