    Hey, if Idris Elba says it his favorite beer when out drinking in London, that’s okay by me. After all, I’m not going to F with Luther.

    Gotta say, Eruption is phenomenal. Perhaps my favorite IPA from ASB yet this year. Delicious.

    Very tasty brew. First time out to 18 Rd. area this year, did Joe's Ridge/Mojo/Kessel Run/PBR/Primecut x3 about 14 miles. Around 80, sunny, with some clouds, very nice time.

    Used to be my thing, hiking & walking is all I have left. I had some bad thought wander into my during that hike about another gout attack, but chose to whistle in the dark... Stubborness will be my demise at some point, hopefully decades from now...

    So I've been messing with my Supro amp for the last hour, here's a snippet that's heavily overdriven. I recorded this on my little Edirol R9 recorder and it was a little hot level wise, but gives an idea of what the amp sounds like.

    Extra points if you can name that tune :wink:

    Delicious NEAPA. Flavors of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, strawberry, blueberry, gooseberry, white grape/wine, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Similar/muted aromas. Light pine citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; creamy/breadygrainy malts, some sticky hops, and slight lingering resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Very smooth/soft, no warmth of 5.5%. Great Mandarina Bavaria, Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon, Mosaic, Citra profile. Very juicy and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering dryness. Really well made for the style. Was getting a bit of a stale wheat note in there, but the BB dating was 4/2019, so I am not going to complain about it. Will finish off the pack easily. Would get again with a fresher batch. Might revisit the regular NEIPA as well.

    Enjoying a Morally Compromised by Ellison from @superspak very good, thank you!

    [​IMG]

    Nice OJ action on both the aroma and the palate, with herb, pine, grass, and wood to compliment them both. Slight hop fading but not bad for the date. Red grapefruit and lime along with the OJ on the palate. Slight mango and papaya on the tongue as it warms. Overall a really enjoyable IPA. I gave it a 4.1 out of 5.

    Cheers

    Fantastic flavored american stout. Aromas and flavors of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, peanut butter, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, cream, toffee, fudge, marshmallow, brownie batter, toasted biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of molasses, dark fruit, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, herbal, grassy spicy hops; and roast/charred bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; very creamy, silky, bready malts; some sticky hops and chalky roast in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing hop/char bitter dryness; no cloying, acrid, astringency. Very smooth, minimal warming 7.2%. Fantastic balance of rich malts, peanut butter, cocoa, and vanilla flavors; with balancing earthy hops. Lightly sweet with lingering dryness. Highly impressive for the style. Liked it more than the base beer.

    Off the top of my head on a Tuesday night, I can’t name that tune.

    But the amp, and more importantly the player, are sounding damn good.

    Tasting insane as usual, 2 months old. Aromas and flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, and pine hops; with some biscuity, light caramel/toasted malt balance; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on finish. Medium carbonation/body, and fairly crisp finishing. Sticky/resinous hops, with a fair amount of balancing bready/grainy malt creaminess in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing resin dryness, never astringent. Super vibrant, juicy, and dank on hops; and extremely drinkable. Amazing classic Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial profile. Will always be a top favorite Ohio IPA, along with Columbus and White Rajah. I need to go back to Ohio more often than I do.

    After doing that West Coast collab by Moonraker and Beachwood earlier, my only option was to try out the counterpart by Alvarado Street and Green Cheek — So Delightful.

    I think So Delightful takes it, which is surprising to me since the previous beer included Beachwood, whom I hold to be in the league of their own when it comes to clear IPAs. There is so. much. flavor packed into this West Coast Double. It's juicy to the max in a West-Coast kind of way, does deliver bitterness, and comes with a fantastic mouthfeel. Yet, this is not blowing my mind, and I am partial to the style. This is an excellent example of what clear IPAs can be in 2019 (it will probably end up in 4.2-4.3 range in terms of BA ratings), but I expected even more somehow.

    Cheers!

    The Texas jumped out at me, I drink a lot of these and was thinking man that's different and I have a few left from previous buy, lol. Anyway, looks like they kick different batches.

    3 decades ago I loved that beer, if anything like then. I would gag. Was cloying sweet in the late 80s
