Now it's number two.
Rhinestones and Sequins Brut DIPA
Excellent DIPA. Glad it's back, and with easy to find can dates! Fantastic lasting head retention and thick lacing on the glass. Aromas and flavors of big pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, passion fruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, and pine hops; with moderate honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel malt sweetness; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy/bready malts, some sticky hops, and light resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering resin dryness, no hop astringency. Lightly increasing warmth of 9.5%. Dangerously smooth. Pretty sure this is just imperial Norms. Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe hops. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hop complexity; good sized malt backbone, but not overly sweet/heavy from lingering bitter dryness. Always love both this and Norms for classic tasting Midwest IPAs.
Stone - Espresso Totalitarian
I picked up a single and have now realized I forgot how great of a beer it was, when I pick up a sixer I’ll definitely be looking.
Trillium Secret Stairs
“A Boston Stout”
Fantastic. Cold brewed coffee, nutty, ashy, slightly bitter roast, milk chocolatey. A stand out stout.
Last of the night, have to be up in eight hours.
Another mid-May night in the 30's.
This is my go to summer beer, always solid and great price.
Stone Hop Revolver IPA ( Sabro ) IPA as the closer. Saw some Beth earlier, here's some more...
Alaskan: Spruce IPA
Beer and a Movie
A different, but also favorite, live performance of the song
Cheers LNBA’s. Now that this is being canned, and legibly date stamped, Ive found a new member of the rotation. A bit sweeter than other pils but apparently that’s part of the Bohemian style. Canned 04/10.
Pulled from the back of the fridge...Crooked Stave's Colorado Wild Sage Brett Saison...picked this up in Brooklyn late last summer and figured it's time was finally due...a nice, subtle dueling sage and lemongrass combo gives a solid base for a musty mint and general earthy character to shine...a refreshing 'pop' for this late-night drinker...cheers!
Going to the river for a third time.
Hard to choose. She is doing this song rightoeous!
So different. I love both.
Beth Hart gives me those chills though. Sometimes she scares me and I like it.
Just home and enjoying a local favorite. Got that dank blueberry I love in a mosaic beer. Feeling frisky, may have another.
Let's do one more, shall we? Switching from IPAs to a lager and going with Foreign Objects' (whose recent presence in CA is definitely appreciated) Die HerzMaschine Helles. Very good imo. Unlike with some of FO's pilsners, here they went for a traditional take on the style (the mouthfeel might be a bit heavy), and I'm so glad they did.
Hitting this now, courtesy of @ovaltine, after a long weekend consisting of a funeral and lots of family, a sizable chunk of which were family members I could do without, either religious fanatic teetotalers or sleazy grifters.
Different from other hoppy beers I've had from TG, a fruity, sweet IPA that turns into an old school west coast IPA in the finish. Good, but weird.
This DIPA is great fresh or “old.” I feel like I’m just getting started, I’m not a huge fan of this shift, but it’s probably bedtime after this.
Another mark in my spontaneous fridge-clearing effort tonight...a 2017 Sofie, and it's drinking very nicely...plenty of savory, bready spice to go with a well-tuned earthy funk...I can dig this...cheers, BAs!
One from @jvgoor3786 that I’ve been overlooking for some time.
This beer asked me for one more chance and I said the sky’s the limit, LNBA.
Well, I was watching Lucifer on Netflix but it crapped out on me. Told me it was having trouble and should watch something else. I blame @TheGent and his Other Half seance. Switched to Hulu and started Band of Brothers. Had never watched it in its entirety. Now here we are, opening too big beers, too late at night, and watching too enticing series. Cheers LNBA’s.
Thanks! Those are some snippets from Jeff's Boogie off an early Yardbird's album.
