    Today is going to be an Iron Hill day for me. Up first is Sweet Leaf, an IPA that clocks in at 7.2%. I just reviewed it and saw several reviews that said it was boozy. I didn't get any of that. I did get grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit. This is a rock solid IPA from a trusted local brewery.

    NBW cross-post. @TheIPAHunter, WBAYDN regulars will be in Philadelphia, PA, for the 6/10/22-6/11/22 Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest. I am debating joining that celebration. We need to get everyone together for the most epic beer share!

    I'm guilty of just hitting the like button sometimes. Not this time though. Great story, great memories and a great name too. Haven't had that beer since the mid-90s. Cheers to your pop-pop and cheers to you.

    Some more of that Double Nugget Nectar.

    Dedicated to @TheIPAHunter who convinced me to get my hands on some. Much appreciating his tribute to his grandfather. I sympathize brother. My grandpa and grandma fought in WW2 (and then a civil war, and spent 30+ years in exile). Much respect and love.

    I learned a long time ago that hard liquor and me go together like vodka & milk. I wish I knew his whiskey of choice, but I think that might have died w/ him. I doubt my mom would remember because she wasn't the biggest fan of his drinking. Haha!

    I think we can all be guilty from time to time. There’s definitely been times I’ve followed along for 5 pages and the put my phone down and came back to 12 pages. Kinda tough to devote that kind of time. I still try to make sure everyone gets their “like” though. Cheers.

    Helping my buddy turn his DE beach house garage into a beer cave. Just finished the bar - all solid 1.5 inch thick solid oak. It ain't Virtual, but it works. ...

    ... and time for the inaugural beer from a local DE brewery. This T-IPA is dank as all get out. (Canned two weeks ago.)

    Upland Brewing "Polar Bear Kisses". Picked up a mixed 4 pack of Upland's barrel-aged imperial stout variants recently. This is the cacao and peppermint one. I don't normally love peppermint but this one isn't too bad. Definitely warming me up after some morning shoveling. Go Hoosiers!!

    Stone Buenaveza and some free chips and salsa at the Mexican place next to where I’m getting my tux fitted. Waiting on my brothers so I’m killing time. Damn over punctuality pays off sometimes.

    Still sipping on some Spencer, no pic but listening to the second half of the Illinois/Indiana game on the radio. As I don't have cable to watch it on ESPN. Listening WDWS, home of the Fighting Illini with legendary Deon Thomas, and Brian Barnhart. :sunglasses::grin:

    Errands for the day are done. Two Hearted for me. The mrs. is drinking a Topo Chico hard seltzer (those things are pretty tasty). We're getting ready to play Mario Golf on N64.

    I was really disappointed by this coming from Schneeeule, who usually manage a much more subtle and sophisticated brew.

    Flora Speziaal, a Berliner Weisse by German brewer Schneeeule (3.5%).

    The label lists this as being brewed with orange and lemon peel, but it tastes more like being brewed with whole lemons. That strong, lemony sourness really is overwhelming here really drowns out the more subtle additions of rose petals, ginger and wood chips.

    The Substance Ale from Bissell Brothers. This is a personal favorite from them for me. Of course I like Swish more, but the quality control of this beer, batch-to-batch, is hard to beat. Canned on 1/18/22. Yessir!!! Peace...
    P.S. Thanks for the comments on my late pop pop. He's been gone several years now. That Black Label was a treat; 60 seems like too low a score for the style. I think a flat 70 would be more representative. Carthell says it's world-class. Of course he must have thought that. Ya know, not to get off subject, but I once thought Viva paper towels were the best because of the soft texture. Now it just feels weird to me. Maybe I prefer the quicker-picker-upper (Bounty) by a slight margin. Brawny is a distant third. Hunter, what are you even talking about? Cheers!

    I was singing this young man's praises in this forum before he was old enough to drive a car legally. You don't have to like him, but he certainly turned out to be more (huge understatement) than a one-hit wonder. I'm not sure how relevant he'll be in his 40's, but by then he'll have more than enough money to live fat & comfortably. I like this young man.

    He probably already has more than enough to live fat and comfortably by most of our standards. P.S. I like the Sparkle brand. Cheap and very absorbent. Cheers.

    Good afternoon heathens,

    [​IMG]

    "8th Anniversary Imperial IPA (10.0%) For our 8th Anniversary IPA we massively packed this Imperial IPA with our favorite hops from near and far. Featuring our hand-selected Mosaic and Citra hops from the pacific northwest along with Australian Enigma hops, New Zealand Motueka from our friends at Freestyle hops and dash of Idaho 7 originally bred in Boise, Idaho. Then, we topped it off with some next-level Citra Incognito and Citra Cryo for a soft and juicy, worldwide IPA. Here’s to another amazing year! $24 per 4 Pack." By, Other Half Brewing Company.

    Be safe.

    Orange juice of destiny! @TheIPAHunter, again with the Bounty. Your sister and I will not change our allegiance to Viva. Using Viva paper towels is like cleaning with a cloud, as Odin guides your hands. I have seen Body Count live, and I believe Ice-T can be on a level slightly above Phil Anselmo, who I believe is the greatest heavy metal frontman ever! On any given night, Ice-T can certainly deliver a performance better than any other frontman in heavy metal!

    Is the snow deep enough for us to do elbow drops on each other off the roof? That's always a good time, but I'm sure the neighbors are confused by it.
