Long productive day here. Worked from home and got a ton of stuff done. Went out and bought a grill, which was interesting in itself…had to un-box the damn thing in the parking lot of Lowe’s because the box wouldn’t fit in the batmobile. Instruction manual stated that it should take 40 minutes to put together. How long do you suppose it took? 40 minutes my ass…more like an hour and 40 minutes. Once the thing was together, I fired it up for some grilled veggies. It’s finally time to relax with some Bruins and beer!
The beer of choice is this Widmer Pitch Black IPA. The brew is a fine example of the style. Lots of roasted malt flavor mixing with hoppiness. Interesting hop character that starts out with bright citrus flavors and finishes with a piney flavor. The balance of sweet and bitter is fantastic.
Despite being very dark in color, the brew is light and refreshing. With black IPA being all the rage these days, I would highly recommend trying this one out.
