    Good day, all!

    La Goudale to kick off the weekend, a fairly good bière de garde we get here fresh enough. Cheap and enjoyable:

    I’d like to share a drawing I’ve done during the lockdown to keep myself occupied. I did draw other things too. Don’t be too harsh, as I’m no artist, only an amateur and it’s becoming a hobby:

    Santé!

    Another awesome tune from the Brazilians:

    Have a good Friday. Got my internet situation more or less upgraded yesterday. Going to play some more new games today. Still a lot of things on sale in various places. A lot of things I have yet to touch after purchasing.

    Surly Abrasive. Amazing as usual, glad they are in the state now. Aromas and flavors of huge tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Good sized pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; balanced creamy/bready malt and sticky/resinous/rindy hops in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing resin dryness; minimal lingering hop astringency. Fantastic Citra showcase. Supper juicy, vibrant, dank, and earthy hops; with a nice sized bready malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness.

    Good day BAS! Finished up at the cemeteries yesterday and got my garden planted - tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, and winter squash. Everything survived the night deer. That just leaves the decorative pots around the house to do. Today's New Breakfast Beer:

    Good morning BAs! Another hot, humid and sunny day on tap here. I walked the dogs about 6:30, and after feeding them, I’ve been doing never ending unpacking/cleaning in the garage, while the temperature in it is below 80...I’m going to try and do an hour or two each day...break time - one of my guilty pleasures:

    Delish and only 8%. I’ve got a small row of beans to plant this morning, then I’ll be more or less finished with my small veggies garden. Cheers and let’s “celebrate, celebrate, another day of...life!”

    I like it! There’s something about it.... I draw as well. I tend to draw irezumi Japanese style. Like the traditional painting that people get tattooed on their back. I’ll post up this afternoon so you can see as well!

    Happy Friday BA. Taking my daughter camping today for a few nights; third year in a row for some daughter/daddy camping and I love it, and so does she. Needed some coffee as I load the trailer:

    2017 vintage. Coffee tastes more like cacao beans & dark chocolate at this age, still lovely.

    Cheers BA!

    Continued to futz around outside, mostly in the shade, and fiddled with the sprinkler heads (must add parts to HD list). Pre-lunch beer, in my cool, climate controlled office...JWB/Bottle Logic collab - “Sinister Sixth V1”:

    [​IMG]

    Working on the growler I got at HBS on Tuesday...3 days post fill and carbonation is barely present...I took the bottle out of my mini-fridge and let it sit for 50 minutes on my desk in the office...pour is at 57 degrees, and it tastes great! Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak, whisper of booze in the afterglow. Medium plus body, chalky/dusty cocoa powder feel; dry rye barrel finish. This is a killer collaboration between our two coast’s premier breweries. I may just have to finish this bottle off...:sunglasses:...today!

    Aslin Runaway Train IPA

    This is a visually very unattractive beer. Gray yellow and murky with a pungent rotten fruit aroma. The taste is similarly fruity, but with a decent bitterness. Very thick mouthfeel. Despite the above this is actually quite enjoyable. I may have another in fact.

    [​IMG] Poured into a 16 oz Snulip glass canned on 5/1/2020. Pours a very hazy yellow with a half finger sticky white head that leaves thin streaks of lace as it slowly settles. 4.25

    Smell is tangerine, passionfruit, mango, pineapple, peach, apricot, and white grapefruit rind. 4.25

    Taste follows tangerine, pineapple, passionfruit, peach, mango, apricot, and some grapefruit bitterness that lingers a bit after each sip. 4.25

    Mouthfeel is about medium, sticky not dry, nice gentle carbonation, and at 7.1% drinks a little bigger on flavor. 4.5

    Overall this is very nice and with warmer days coming, extremely crushable. I highly recommend. 4.25

    Peak Slim & Hazy. Contender for best brew with 3 carbs or less and under 100 calories. It pains me to be in this market, but I'm quite happy that my beer belly is completely gone.

    Willematte Wolverine. A Triple IPA (9,6%) from Uiltje (NL).

    @Snowcrash000 when you see this one in the shop, ignore the best before and let the canning date be your guide. Also if it has been stored cold. Willematte Wolverine was canned May 20th (price when bought directly from Uiltje €5,95).
