Two Roads Road Jam

Two Roads Road Jam

Sup homies? Chilling out on a Monday night here. Not much going on this evening except the carnival that is me attempting to hang a full length mirror. Honestly, me trying to do anything handy around the house is guaranteed to be a show. One time while trying to troubleshoot the toilet I took it apart…the whole Fing thing…into a thousand pieces. Six hours later, I got it back together. The issue? The flange needed to be replaced (a 5 minute job, tops).

Hanging the mirror wasn’t quite that bad, but it did take far more time and result in far more holes in the wall, than it should have ever required.

I’m celebrating my ridiculousness with a bottle of Two Roads Road Jam. Upon pouring the beer, I was startled; the beer is a bright red color. I suppose I shouldn’t have been so surprised, as the beer is marketed as a raspberry wheat ale. And it tastes as one might expect – light, berry-filled, with a hint of wheatiness. The berry flavor is mild and makes for a refreshing and super-drinkable beer. Although I probably wouldn’t drink a six-pack of the stuff, I can imagine having a couple at a cookout or BBQ. If you’re into light& fruity beers, this one would probably be a home run for you.

It’s good…it’s so good

Tonight I went for a run for the first time since the half-marathon back in May. I picked a great day to do it: 95 degrees with nearly 100% humidity. I also picked a fantastic route: all hills. The loop was a little over 2 miles and it kicked my ass. Luckily, there were no negative results as far as my back was concerned.

Tonight I’m reviewing a beer that I discovered last weekend by accident. Firestone Walker Easy Jack. I picked up a six-pack of the stuff because I thought it looked interesting and because the local liquor store in the town I moved to has an unimpressive beer selection. Let’s just say that I’m very glad that I’m still less than 15 minutes from Julio’s. The Easy Jack is a 4.5% session American IPA. As far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the top-3 session IPAs I’ve ever had. Flavor wise, there is a ton of hops action, however it doesn’t come across as over the top. Instead, there’s solid tropical fruit, which is balanced with just enough malt.

Like session IPA? You have to try this beer.
