With the NYC recap and other non beer review posts I haven’t had a chance to talk about what’s going on this week. Then again, nothing is really going on! I’m having a really busy week at work…the kind where you get a ton of shit done and feel really productive. On top of that, I played a fantastic (for me) round of golf this morning. I teed off at 5:15. Are you cringing yet? I love the golf course in the morning where it’s only you and the birds.
Summer has officially hit Massachusetts. The last two weeks it has been in the 80s and 90s. Tomorrow it is supposed to hit 100. Not complaining. Love it.
To go with the sweltering heat I’m drinking a couple of IPAs tonight. The first is Opa-Opa Hop Express. You’ll have to check out a later post to see what else I’m drinking.
The Hop Express doesn’t have much of a hoppy smell, but DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN the taste sure as hell is hoppy. It starts citrusy but quickly switches over to a brutal piney. I picture hop lovers humping the empty bottle.
I can’t get past the aftertaste…it is simply too strong for me to appreciate. I’m going to finish the bottle and hope my pallet isn’t destroyed for my second beer!
