    Mrs Hiwattowner had the audacity to suggest that these two pedals were the same given that they had the same name on them.

    After I overcame my shock at this outrageous view, I cooled down and had a beer.

    Did you piss yourself yet?

    Or is that in 20 minutes from now when you pass out on your cat Pussy Galore?

    My wife and I had dinner at The Brick Farm Tavern (the home of Troon Brewing) tonight to celebrate her Birthday.

    [​IMG]
    I started with Troon's Trying to Get Fired, a DIPA

    [​IMG]
    With a cucumber salad.

    [​IMG]
    With my steak I had Troon's Grandma's Famous Oatmeal Cookies, a DIPA with honey, lactose, vanilla, and maple granola. It balanced the savory sauce on the meat. As always, Brick Farm Tavern serves up great food and Troon's beer is outstanding!

    Gotta agree, good job, especially for your first attempt. There's a bit of a learning curve involved.

    Give beer can chicken a try, really good on a smoker. There's a ton of different recipes on the web. Cheers!

    Excellent pale lager. Aromas and flavors of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with moderate herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery hops. Light-moderate herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium-plus carbonation, light-medium body, and fairly crisp/clean finishing. Balanced bready/grainy malts and sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Slight lingering resins. Light-moderate increasing bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Very clean lager flavors, minimal fruity/yeasty notes. Very flavorful/refreshing, not watery for 4.3%. Very clean pils malt/grain showcase, and great noble hop presence/balance for the style. Not overdone on adjuncts. Really impressive.

    Session sour from Big Lake. This was awesome. Solid head retention/minimal lacing. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/tart/tangy lemon, lime, orange, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bread dough malts; light peppercorn, lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness fruit tang; light zesty bitterness and spiciness on the finish. Medium-plus carbonation, light-medium body, and moderately crisp/clean finishing. Balanced creamy/grainy wheat, lactic acid, fruit tang, and citrus zest in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy dryness; zero pucker/astringency. Very flavorful/refreshing, mellowly lactic, not watery for 4.2%. Awesome balance of super juicy/vibrant lemons and Lacto complexity; with a great pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity for the ABV. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp drying. Awesome summer sour! Glad I got the 4 pack as expected.

    16 oz. can.
    Moderate pour yields a 1/4 inch tan head over a near black body with some lacing. Nose of wedding cake, almonds, and very little coffee or vanilla. Taste outshines the nose as it really does taste like wedding cake. The coffee and vanilla still take the back seat on this one with a finish of marzipan. Nice feel and overall, yet another tasty treat from the evil one. Cheers!

    C&P from NBS.

    First time I had this was on my son’s birthday four or five years ago, so I try to have it every year on this day. Missed it last year, glad I got three bottles this year.

    Drinking a beer from work. A mostly Galaxy West Coast IPA with Citra and Idaho-7 playing a backing role. My co-workers seem to not like it whenever we brew it but I love it. (West Coast) Juicy, berry forward, crisp, and bone dry. When I say West Coast juicy, I mean more of a distinct berry flavor than the citrus and tropical fruit flavor that New England IPAs go for.

    [​IMG]

    This used to be Sweet Spot IPA back in the day. I believe but the hop timing and the malt bill was slightly adjusted to make it better.

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I actually switched from Coors Light to Bud Light because of their ingredients. Why ingest GMO corn syrup if I don’t have to?

    You know the yeast eats the corn syrup. You just ingest the alcohol and carbonation.
