Easter week (Holy week) is always crazy busy for us. Church on Sunday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. The worst part about evening mass is that I get home from work, scarf dinner too fast, work out, and then get gassy. That’s right, I was gassy in church. With my stomach issues, there is nothing I can do about it. As such, I don’t consider it a sin. Lucky for me (or should I say everyone else?), there was a lot of incense used this evening.
I’m about to banish myself to the bedroom to watch the Bruins on DVR. I’m not sure why, since the Bs have already locked their position in the playoffs and have NOTHING to play for. Before I go watch this pointlessness, I’m going to review this Peak Organic Simcoe Spring that I bought on yesterday’s beer run.
For my craft beer newbie readers, “Simcoe” is a type of hops. That’s the extent of my knowledge about Simcoe…and before all you beer nerds jump in, I don’t want to know any more.
This spring offering from Peak is an uber hoppy American pale ale. It’s a little earthy and a lot floral. Very little sweetness here. My taste buds have most certainly taken a 180 in recent months. This is exactly the type of beer I would have completely disliked previously. Now, although not a home run, it’s an enjoyable way to close out the day.
