    I used to make pizza on the shore. Was taught New York style by hardcore NY dudes and I think Dominoes is mad good. 2 pies for $12 is good as hell and the crust tastes real good

    If you think my form is poor you are correct. After taking this picture the can slipped from my hand and spilled onto my daughter’s Fancy Nancy coloring book. I’ll stick to judging.

    Cheers!

    Being a former NJ resident I do miss my NJ, NY, and PA pizzas. Richmond is not known for its pizza but it is so much better now than even ten years ago.

    Don’t take this the wrong way, but screw you guys in CO. We’re right down 95 here in the affluent DC area. I’d like some Focal, it would definitely be on the island with me this Saturday.

    Ok, the bitterness of this post seems much higher than is necessary or likely to be in this beer:

    See now, you’ve made me spill my beer. I didn’t follow @beergoot ‘s instructions well. Aslin Master of Oranges is one of those NE IPAs I could enjoy more often.

    This is the cleanest looking NE-style IPA I’ve seen, but it tastes pretty doggone good after a long day in the salt mines. Really digging it.

    First time I had an orange with a beer was at least twenty five years ago. I was at an accounting conference (barf) in Las Vegas. They had a poolside bar and one of the draft beers served was a Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat with an orange slice.

    It's one of those glorious days where the liver must pay its price!!!

    3.43/5 rDev -11.4%
    look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

    Jet black body; very nice head, thick and compactly foamy. A respectable dark roasted grain and grain char scent; a touch of cocoa and a bare wisp of vanilla. Weak and watery taste yet still displaying some bitter chocolate and boozy notes. Heavy body, yet also having a diluted character; soft and spongy; alcohol warmth.

    I don't know...I would have expected more substance and body to a beer of this style. Definitely "OK", but not something I would actively seek out again...
    -------------
    ...if only @Thankin_Hank knew how close I was to breaking the Hornitos out the other day (yesterday?) when he did...I know we have an affinity for Ilegal Mezcal...I was sensible yesterday...today, well...

    ...and like @vabeerguy's wife probably beats him about the neck and shoulders with a rubber hose whenever he fantasizes about those elusive (probably phantasmagorical) bottles of bourbon he claims to have (or had), Mrs. BeerGoot would probably rip my nuts off if she saw me drinking tequila...but, today is just glorious...for no particular reason...it just is...and so I imbibe...

    ...and now for Deep Purple's 'My Woman From Tokyo'...er, maybe not...

    Never liked Dominoes...now there was an independent pizza joint in Cascade, MD (Rocky's?) in the mid-90s just outside of Ft. Ritchie, MD...geez, a truly family-oriented business on both sides of the register...English was truly a second language for most...but the food! holy meatballs! what a delight...

    Used to get their Sicilian pie...so stinkin' heavy with the green peppers, onions, deli meats, and cheese...$10 for a large pie and even then when my metabolism allowed digesting massive quantities of such things in one sitting, I could only eat half the thing...

    I've never had such a pizza before, and can only hope to come across something like that again..

    C'mon now, let's keep it classy, it's not like Colorado has any good beers or anything.
    It's a total surprise out here. Seriously. That Aslin looks solid, however, fit for a beerpornhub post. Cheers!

    And now, sadly, I depart to prep all things dinner.
    T-Bone steak night with a soy laquer glaze on it it. And some shitty red wine to go with it.
    Be well - be in beer.

    I’m pretty sure I can’t comply with your request, though I’ll try, now that I’ve settled down.

    I’ll share a new Aslin beer with the GF which fits into the NE DIPA range, so there’s hope:
    [​IMG]

    Hmmm... tastes like it might have some vanilla, but subtle enough I’m not sure. Deeper and more golden (thinking a bit like my jr high coronet) in looks than many Aslin IPAs. It’s got my curiosity piqued.

    I got it set up, boom arm is very sturdy. Did some test recordings in Audacity and there is literally zero noise in the recording waveform diagram. :astonished: I am very happy with my purchase. This is considered to be a budget level condenser mic, but still not exactly inexpensive. Highly recommend reverb.com!!

    Jolly Pumpkin Hyrrokkin. Incredible saison. Lasting fluffy head retention/foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/tart/tangy blood oranges, ginger, lemon, lime, red grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, apricot, passion fruit, red/green apple, white grape/wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, peppercorn, clove, wheat, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and Brett spiciness on the finish. Light lingering sourness. Medium-plus carbonation, light-medium body, and fairly crisp/clean finishing. Balanced creamy/grainy wheat, lactic acid, fruit tang, and light tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/spicy dryness; zero pucker. Very refreshing, not overly lactic, zero warming 5.7%. Fantastic balance of juicy fruit, vibrant ginger, hops, and Brett/bacteria/saison yeast complexity; with nice oak foeder presence and a clean pale/wheat malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp acidic/tangy dryness. One of the best JP saisons I've had in a while! Will definitely pick up again. 4.28

    Cheap wine time @scream. Sister #2 who lives in Pennsylvania called to discuss she and her husband’s Medicare options. Three more glasses of wine later I think we figured it out. Shit should not be so complicated. Especially for old folks.
