    Just got off work and finished video chatting with a new doctor. Apparently my cholesterol is too high. Beer is good for that right? Tastes expired. Also small rant. If it's too fucking dangerous to see a doctor in person maybe spending 8 hours a fucking grocery store on a holiday can fuck off. Seriously fuck this insurance tied to a job shit.

    The sweet spot for me is double IPAs. Triple IPAs on average seem to not taste much better than double IPAs but at a significantly higher ABV. And IPAs seem to not have the same flavor as double IPAs. So with just a slight increase in ABV you can have a more flavorful beer with a DIPA than an IPA.

    But I drink a fair share of Corona, Pabst, and Budweiser so what do I know.

    It depends on who's brewing it. I find the majority of triples to be overly syrupy, and they don't hide the elevated abv well. As for doubles, I would generally agree with that sentiment. They tend to pull more flavor. In comparison, though, Julius clocks in at 6.8% and I'd put that up against anything. The IPA market is saturated right now, truly. I have no problem spending my money where it's executed properly.

    How many tests were taken over a period of time that the level was too high and was it ridiculously higher than 200?

    Not playing doc but I have been down this road!

    And yes, beer is a cure all according to my late dad.

    I wasn't planning on drinking beer earlier today, but a bottle fell out of my garage refrigerator and onto the concrete. Luckily, no broken glass, just a popped bottle cap, so I salvaged most of the beer...

    It camouflages the drunk kayaking statute of which I was in violation.

    I was let go with a warning. So now I’m drinking a von Trapp Dunkel and sitting on the dock of the lake.

    I do not want to mislead anyone so if we want to know my experience and what I think about the cholesterol thing you can private message me. I have strong feelings about it.

    A major thanks to @Wah_junkrat_wah for helping me confirm my fast-growing affinity for SARA hops...to my tastes, this one in particular is truly next-level, and one of the best sub-7% IPAs to have crossed my lips. Cheers, BA!

    Howdy, all.
    A morning hike at our local state park cleared my mind and centered my chi, m'okay?
    Now I'm on this OB hazy IPA that's doubling down on my good mood.
    I'm really enjoying avoiding people a little too much...

    I got pretty wrapped up in work and didn't drink for a few days. Glad that is over.

    South Carolina is eaten up with Coronavirus but it doesn't seem to stop people from going to the beach. I am hunkering down at home for the weekend. Astonished to learn that not all fireworks are legal here. While most types of fireworks are legal, SC does not allow “ground salutes” or “cherry bombs”, M-80’s, TNT salutes, bulldog salutes or small bottle rockets less than ½ inch in diameter and 3 inches long.

    Dinner was delicious - these pies are from Centerville Pie Company in Centerfield MA, Quite delicious, incredible crust, a little pricey but supporting a small local business so I don't mind.
