Most of the time I try to stay positive. Tonight you have to listen to me complain. I’ll make it quick.
#1: My IBS is terrifically bad for the last week. I spent all Sunday miserable on the couch. In fact, it hasn’t been good for about 2-3 months.
#2: I’m completely and utterly stressed out from work. Can’t complain about it here due to the fact that a large number of co-workers now read the blog. Oh, how I long for the early days of LIBA when I was anonymous!
#3: All around me (with the exception of my awesome wife) it seems like common sense is going extinct. No further details will be given. Sorry for the vagueness.
And with that, I feel better now!
And now it’s time for a beer. Last week I received free beer courtesy of Magic Hat. I immediately reviewed the Hocus Pocus. I now move on to this H.I.P.A (pronounced “high-P. A.”). I’m going to cut to the chase and say that I’m not a huge fan.
It’s an OK IPA, but very much “meh”. It’s not packing much in the “interesting” department. I will give it this though: It’s fucking hoppy! Mostly piney, a little floral. Magic hat describes it as “slightly sweet”, but this guys is calling shenanigans on that; the beer is bitter through and through. If you like “the bitter” and like getting tipsy (it’s 6.7% ABV), pick up a six pack up the HI.P.A..
