Night Shift Whirlpool

Night Shift Whirlpool

Hola amigos! Today is a good day. We have been searching for a new home, and we think we have found it. Yesterday we attended an open house and found a place that meets all of our needs, wants and more. We negotiated the offer today and we have a verbal agreement. Now I’m just waiting on the official offer paperwork to roll in tonight in order to seal the deal. I won’t be sharing the listing information until I’m sure the place is ours; call me superstitious.

Tonight after work I hit the gym and rode the bike. I normally don’t do the bike thing, but I’m crazy sore from a run that I probably over-did yesterday. Once back at home, my reward for staying in shape was a can of Night Shift Whirlpool, which I enjoyed in the shower. Shower beer. For. The. Win.

The second I popped the top on the Whirlpool I was smitten. The beer is marketed as a “juicy pale ale bursting with notes of ripe peach and citrus”, and the folks at Night Shift hit the nail on the head! Peach aroma is immediately in your face as the can opens up. Even my wife noticed (yes, we were showering together. No need to get hot and bothered, we routinely take showers together).

As far as flavors, this bad-Larry is all citrus and fruit. Peach flavors are there, but subtle enough that I’m not sure I would be able to identify it had the label not told me of it. File under: AMAZE-BALLS. When I realized that it was also 4.3% ABV, I couldn’t contain my excitement and started whispering sweet nothings to the can as I stood in the shower. I kissed the can too. And, no, I’m not making any of this up. Ii was nude, getting all sexy with a can of beer. There may or may not have even been some dirty talk.

This is my new favorite session beer!
