On the heels of deciding to get my first tattoo, I have decided to get a series of tattoos. I knew it would happen, not unlike the 4 earrings I have in my ear. Funny thing is, I haven’t even figured out when I’m getting the FIRST tattoo! I’m still investigating tattoo artists to find the right one. In fact, after this post I’m spending some time researching.

In my glass tonight is Slumbrew Flagraiser IPA. Before I even start the review, let me point out that the label says “enjoy bottle when fresh” and “bottled 01-2012” (6 months ago). Rather than get worked up, I’m just going to remind you of my previous rant on this topic and say that although I bought the beer last week, I don’t know if my bottle no longer qualifies as “fresh”.

Appearance: Burnt orange color. Decent head. Some lacing.
Aroma: Citrus
Tastes: Citrus at first, followed by VERY bitter piney aftertaste.

Overall a bit too rugged for me with such a harsh hoppy finish.
