SO much has been going on in the last week. I haven’t had much of a chance to keep everyone informed. Here’s a quick rundown…
Work is crazy as I settle into my new position. I lead a team of 11 people now.
School is bonkers too. Last week I wrote a term paper and took a midterm (ACED IT!). Next week I need to write another term paper.
I’m in the middle of writing my first of many columns for Yankee Brew News. I’m nervous.
This past weekend I won Patriots tickets in a silent auction.
This past weekend I ran a Halloween 5k race. Best time ever. Pace: 6:33, Time: 20:21, Overall: 18/574, Division: 5th Place.
We braved a hurricane. It wasn’t that bad here in MA.
On Monday we drove through the hurricane up to New Hampshire and attended a yearly get-together with old college friends. I got shitty and managed about 3 hours of sleep before driving home and then going straight to work.
And those are the highlights in ridiculously short fashion!
Tonight I’m watching some Thursday night football and enjoying a bottle of this Harpoon White IPA. This brew is from their limited 100 barrel series. It’s a 6.2% ABV Belgian IPA. Although the official category of beer is “Belgian IPA”, I get absolutely no Belgian flavor. What I do get is a healthy dose of fruity hops, mixed with a wheaty/grainy maltiness, which finishes with a floral hop flavor. At first the hops are a bit too much. Once the beer warmed and my pallet got used to it, it felt less offensive and I really started enjoying it.
