Did you mean Thank God is Hump Day...
Centennial IPA ...
So good. Keep being safe, BAs.
Give them my regards and my certification of excellence on their behalf!!! Cheers!
There are more factors to the perfect pour. Just saying. I love you. But vertical aggressiveness, followed by marginal rotation will not always get it done. I could go on at length, but no one is interested. Cheers!
Drinking the fourth of the barrel aged Imperial Stouts from Wellington Brewery in Guelph, Ontario, the folks who also brew my go to Imperial Russian Stout, an 8% beauty.
This fourth beer is called UVB-76 Roman. It’s 11.9%, like the others, and is straight up Bourbon barrel aged, with nothing else added. IMO the Bourbon is perfectly incorporated, slightly present on the nose and taste, but not interfering with the base beer. I don’t drink spirits, so the subtle approach is always preferred by me in these situations. I don’t think I’m exaggerating to say that the four beers I’ve posted about over the last two days are raising the bar for Imperial Stouts in my province. Regarding the 11.9% of all four beers, I’ve been told but have not independently verified that this is the highest alcohol level you can produce in a beer in Ontario without also having a distillery licence. Cheers. a
Happy Birthday you ornery ol’ coot!
Because it’s December and whatever.
turtle had eggs. There was a male in the tank but I caught them in the act so I removed him two weeks ago and she laid eggs tonight so I removed them and put them in sand under a heat lamp. In 7 weeks there may be 3 more as long as they didn’t freeze in the water (it is heated though) and I handled them carefully enough. She moved all the rock I guess looking for a spot to lay so they just came out in the water.

The best way to celebrate the birthday of @TheIPAHunter is to drink and share the Nelson love. Cheers!
Numero-el-two-o and every bit as good as el-one-o.
Next up, Barrel aged Feral Bones from Structures.
Having some shine from the Hop vine tonight. This is a pine bomb, super dry finish very light malt body and smooth carbonation.
Love this beer
Sometimes, all of th’ days roll together inta a big ball of suckittude in COVID Year One.
But... it’s the beer’s name, in this instance.
Greatly appreciated, sir! Much love.
TRVE -- Dunwich (porter)
How could I forget.
Happy birthday to @TheIPAHunter.
You are a legend.
Truer words were never spoken. I had to learn that lesson the hard way.
Cheers all. Gonna have another glass of cheap wine. Do not fear. Tomorrow I am gonna pick up some Bell’s Two Hearted which was not sold in Virginia the last two years, and on Friday gonna get a bunch of Triple Crossing IPAs/DIPAs.
Vertical aggressiveness is best suited to a Duvel...said no one...anywhere...ever.
Mannn, I don't deserve that kind of praise. I love you, sir.
I heard it was @TheIPAHunter ’s birthday, so I called up my old pal, Boris, to see how I should honor this occasion. Boris said - Hiwatt (sorry, I forgot to mention that Boris and I are on a first name basis), definitely an IPA.
So cheers @TheIPAHunter. You’ve made me smile more than once with your posts. And that is not too shabby.
P.S. Did someone say Jack’s Abby releasing Kiwi Rising this weekend...?
Drekker Odin Is My Overlord Lactose DNEIPA, 8% ABV. Pours bright yellow with a middle-finger of white head that left no lacing. Nose is tropical fruit, citrus and lactose, taste follows, plus pine, with slight sweetness and moderate bitterness. Excellent smooth mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Overall excellent to outstanding.

If I let her, Mia (a Bengal) would have played in the beer, as she's 1/8 wildcat and loves playing in water/liquids. Her wildcat ancestor reportedly fished, though she wouldn't have found any in my beer. Her size and the size of the 20oz glass make the 16oz can look small.
Having a 2017 Central Waters Brewer's Reserve Bourbon Barrel Barleywine Ale. Real nice notes of charred brown sugar, dark caramel, toffee, blackstrap molasses, toasty bread, mild chocolate, red grape, plum, cherry, fig, dried apricot, citrus melange, bourbon barrel, oak, vanilla marshmallow, dates, with herbal earthy piney hop notes. Pretty nice one. Cheers all!
Probably my favorite IPA and one that is so well executed for being so aggressive.
This is a pretty awesome beer for me personally. It was the first if not one of the first double IPA magnify brewed years ago.
The beer was created to celebrate the hop contract they settled on that allowed them to have access to Citra and Mosaic hops. Two amazing hops.
This beer is just as good today as it was then.
Just got back from some errands and picked up the tree. Letting the limbs fall and settle a bit before we start decorating. My wife loves Christmas much more than I, but I do demand a real tree if we are going to have one.
Grabbed some Festive Ale to get in the spirit. And think I’ll throw on The Grinch.
That made me smile on so many levels. My childhood idol, not to mention a beer that I have posted many times over the years on this site. I don't even know what to say. That was special. Cheers!
This probably won't appease the haze bros (sorry), even I hate that term. But... have no fear, this is a really good IPA. I drank it straight off the canning line over Thanksgiving. I love these guys. I love you.
Yeah they sell these for $3 each at the liquor store on the way home from work. No brainier
Up now, courtesy @adrock314 , a 2017 Troegs Mad Elf Grand Cru. Holy shitballz! Great stuff!
Happy Birthday Hunter! Hope it's LARRRGE...
Having an IPA right now in solidarity
Hotel drinking, go home in the morning
This is a recording of a live jam that I entitled Worcester State Hospital. The backstory is that I wrote this tune with a friend of mine when we were 18 years old and I've been jamming over it ever since. He lived adjacent to the Worcester State Hospital, hence the name. Unfortunately, little remains of the hospital now since a large part of it was destroyed in a fire and the rest of it was pretty much torn down. This is one of my favorite tunes to jam over. The picture is the original administration building which has since been torn down, a historic loss to the city as far as I'm concerned. At any rate, I like this jam.
A classic. Very nice.

Brooklyn Winter Lager. I’m not the biggest fan of Brooklyn, but I look forward to this seasonal every year. It’s great.
It's good, though a let down from the last one.
I love this Chinooker'd. So damn good. Peace.
