This will be the sipper for the night.
Off work early and getting into a glass of Stable Genius at Level Beer..
Love 120! How’s it drinking for you with 3 years on it? Cheers!
Thanks. I am sending Strangeways crowlers they are not sours. IPAs mostly. But there are folks I trade with that like sours (not me for the most part), and I would very much like to send them some Veil or The Answer sours (or Joose) if they can be ok unrefrigerated for about three days.
Excellent Kolsch. Fantastic lasting rocky head retention/thick foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of juicy/tart/tangy pink guava, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, lime, peach, pear, melon, and red apple yeast; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit malts; herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery hops; and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Mediumplus carbonation, light-medium body, and fairly crisp/clean finishing. Creamy/silky/grainy wheat; some sticky hops, and fruit tang/acid/tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing tart/bitter dryness; no pucker/astringency. Very flavorful/refreshing, not watery for 5.3%. Awesome balance of authentic juicy guava and clean pale/wheat malts; with nice earthy hop presence/balance, and restrained yeast fruitiness. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. Would buy again. Spot on bast style example for sure. 4.03
Do I detect Amarillo here?
Camp site set up, Mrs. Z resting in our RV’s king size bed...high 80s, but humidity in the 30s and a nice breeze under large shade trees...beer me! Yellow Rose:
This IPA is growing on me! Cheers from San Antonio TX!
Goose Island's SPF.......Very sweet, with lots of passion fruit. Refreshing.
That bitter head snap, is just a bitter nod, a sweet dried fruit thread is out now. The Alcohol exhale still strong.
Stone imperial Mexican chocolate stout with some homemade Mexican breakfast cookies.
To answer @TheGent. from Sunday . Yes sometimes I plan out what I'm baking/cooking based on which beer I have in stock. Makes it interesting to try and find things that pair well
Got six of them. Do not ask. Ignore the cans i the backgound. I did not drink them. Took them out of the refrigerator to let the condensation wear off. Their sorry asses are being shipped tomorrow.
I traded some King Sue for some of this and Fayston Maple with a guy in work
I went to the store for Lawson’s and they didn’t have it in. He went to the store for TG and they were out. Coincidence, I think not.
This guy was one funny shit
Sounds like a match made in heaven. Enjoy!
Yep. Give it another year and the hops will be long gone and it will drink more like a strong ale/Barleywine, and the alcohol bite will mellow and the whole become more Sherry like, with layers of boozy dark fruit and earthy tobacco notes...to me anyway - Cheers!
New Ascension BA sour. This was fantastic. Great fluffy head retention/soapy lacing on the glass. Aromas and flavors of big tart/sour key limes, citrus peel/zest, lemon, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, tequila, oak, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate vanilla, cream, agave, graham cracker, wheat, white bread dough malt sweetness; light peppercorn/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang; light citrus peel bitterness, and tequila/oak spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; very creamy/silky/grainy wheat/lactose; some lactic acid, fruit tang, and oak tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy/tannic dryness; no pucker. Very smooth, pretty refreshing, not overly lactic, minimal warming 7%. Fantastic balance of vibrant key limes, graham cracker, vanilla, Lacto complexity, and tequila barrel presence/integration; with a great lactose and pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. Light residual sweetness with lingering acidic/tangy dryness. Amazing for an experimental beer, tastes just like the dessert. 4.25
Guayabera as the evening sets in and the temp (thankfully) starts to drop a little:
Our “HaRVey” in the background. Mrs. Z likes the breeze, so doors open, flys/bugs be damned!
Very tasty brew ...
Skipping a run today, because it's late, and I'm starving, and I need to start cooking, like, now. So that means it's time to start drinking, as well!
Creature Comforts Tropicalia
Being a seafood lover I honestly care about pairings. I’d be in a lobster coma at 7 bucks a pop. Cheers
New England Brewing Co./Elm City Pilsner.
I had this at the brewery four years ago at the brewery, and they had Mornin’ Delight on tap, too. I also picked up 2 cases of Lightspeed bombers and muled them back to Minnesota.
That was a good beer nerd day.
This is pretty outstanding, IMHO.
Good day BA! Starting out with this
Opened up a Colorado Lager and it completely and rapidly disappeared.. so I guess I’m not drinking anything
#2, I’m enjoying this immensely. It’s like a malted milk ball in a big imperial stout.
That’s a good thing.
Joining the WBAYDN today with this guy from Moonraker. Pretty good for a milkshake IPA, but these are still not my thing.
Nice glass. I remember when the brewery was a garage operation.
A three year anniversary russian imperial stout from Castle Island. Drinking nice on this cold New England evening.
On Tuesdays I like to put on my velvet smoking jacket, get out my pipe and slowly sip a Grand Cru.
Then I strip down to my T-Shirt, revert to my usual level of hedonism and have an IPA.
Abomination Brewing DIPA. This was fantastic. Lasting rocky head retention/thick foamy lacing. Opaquely hazy. Aromas and flavors of huge mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate honey, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; balanced creamy/silky/bready/grainy malts, sticky hops, and some resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering resin dryness; no cloying/astringency. Dangerously smooth, nicely soft, minimal warming 9.3%. Feels like Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe. Extremely juicy, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balancing wheat/oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. Spot on NEDIPA. 4.23
Skolnick era is still my favorite, but the death/groove metal influenced set of albums in the mid/late 90s are still amazing.
Very Green is very good! Full flavored and smooth with moderate hop bitterness. Cheers!
Done with beer. Time for cheap wine (fuck you @scream ) and tuna cakes. Yes we are gonna cook them. Do not be a smart ass.
Celebrating Illinois Craft Beer Week, #ICBW @ Black Horizon for their Milkshake IPA Event...
Dreamsicle and Banana Split...
Hill Farmstead Double Citra
Honey, lactose, and lots of hops. Liking this one. Go B’s!!
Tequila/taco Tuesday with a side of Tuna. Tomorrow is the first get-up at 0355 in 5 days.....screw it, I'll have another soon.....
Went to my daughter’s soccer game( they won 2-1), now home for a beer or two.
Order a chelada in Texas and you get a glass of ice with fresh lime juice, salted rim, and a beer to pour in as you please. Michelada has the clamato/tomato juice. I'm much more of a chelada guy. Very refreshing when it's a 100° out.
