    Time to start a Saturday. Why not go with a classic? Have a safe and fun day, virtual bar brethren.

    Starting Saturday with a very hoppy barley wine from the best brewery in the world.

    I’ve gotten back into Formula 1 racing lately, watching Drive To Survive on Netflix.

    [​IMG] Welcome to NH Industrial Arts. This is a 4 year Anniversary NEDIPA with Galaxy and Amarillo hops canned on 8/18/2020. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a finger plus sticky white head that leaves a big thick foamy collar around the entire glass with amazing retention.5 Gorgeous beer.

    Smell is guava, ripe melon, peach, pineapple, apricot, and some grapefruit rind. 4.5

    Taste follows big in flavor but low on bitterness, and amazingly balanced throughout. Guava, honeydew, pineapple, peach, passionfruit, apricot, and just a tickle of white grapefruit in the finish. 4.5

    Mouthfeel is big, soft gentle carbonation almost creamy, a tad sticky not dry, and at 8.2% it goes down very easy, but may drink more like 9% in flavor and body. 5

    Overall this is a special beer and I can’t wait to what arrives from this place, I had some stuff from them in trade and never realized how well priced they are at $16 a 4 pack for killer suds. Awesome stuff. Cheers all and especially @mschrei Matt for getting us started on this holiday weekend. 4.5

    Good day BAs! Another foggy morning here in NW PA - off later to pick up some stain and lumber for my son's den - finally going to finish that project. Today's New Breakfast Beer:

    [​IMG]

    Got this from Craftshack - canned 6.5 months ago. So I'll be buying no more IPAs from them. Tastes like it was probably good four or five months ago.

    Feel free to upload this can image on the beer's page, as I can't make that happen on my phone

    Pretty unique beer brewed for a gamer's convention in Indianapolis.

    Two more nightshifts to work. I'm going to hit a tiny bit of bourbon and get a nap. Cheers all and enjoy your weekend!

    Good morning BAs! It’s almost pleasant here early am to walk the dogs. Chores for now done...coffee time, courtesy of @basaywhat - “Coffee Cloud Maker”, an Imperial Stout with vanilla and coffee:

    [​IMG]

    Have a good Saturday. I was up until about 4 AM last night with my buddy and we were playing Bossgard and Overcooked over Steam using Remote play together from his desktop gaming rig to our laptops. Everything worked incredibly smoothly. Will do it again tonight.

    Mad Anthony Ruby Raspberry Wheat. Excellent fruit wheat. Lasting rocky head retention/soapy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big ruby red raspberries, fruit skin/seeds, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light toast, herbal, floral, wood, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal, woody, grassy, bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy wheat, and lightly sticky/acidic/tangy mouthfeel that is great. Lightly increasing bitter/tart/tangy dryness after the finish; no cloying sweetness. Very smooth, soft, and refreshing. No warmth of 4.7%. Great balance of juicy/jammy raspberries, fruity yeast, and clean pale/.wheat malt flavors; with solid earthy hop presence. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. No complaints. 4.03

    I know that this is not considered to be a super premium brand but I did not expect it to be as bad as it was. Tasted boozy and with some hints of nail polish. I'm no expert in festbier-style beers but this is not something I can enjoy.

    Pleasantly cool this AM allowing for an early walk. The moon was spewing forth streams of white, wispy haze.

    Maybe it’s having a Drunken Morning.

    This is an average beer, glad it’s my last. Was listening to some Dylan on the aforementioned walk.

    I start out on a 5 mile walk at 5:00am and @mschrei is starting the damn thread, probably still drinking from last night. I have to try and one up with some 2017 coffee and the citronella plant :slight_smile:

    My Saturday sit outside and drink beer with the puppy crowler...we went out to the patio at 10am, it’s 92 in the shade, the humidity is 76% and heat index is over 100°...Tui told me I should drink indoors today so he can comfortably nap on the office couch...Angry Chair’s “The Rake”, DIPA DDH with Mosaic and Citra:

    [​IMG]

    Tasty! Working on my notes for NBW (and happy to be inside, per Tui’s suggestion):

    Good looking beer ( and plant! ) there ... how’s the coffee holding up at almost 3 years? I’m betting it’s tasting great - Cheers!

    When my wife saw what I was drinking, she wanted some. Now the neighbor is over. I think this day is shot for doing anything worthwhile. Glad it is 3 days long.

    Surprisingly well. The harshness of the bourbon is gone, the beer has mellowed but the coffee is strong, especially in the aroma. My neighbor that is a Miller Lite guy is actually digging it right now.
