Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, 'cause that's what was in the fridge. Plus it's delicious.

I drank it because I was broke.

Johnny Walker Black is just too smooth to pass up, but isn't a great thirst quencher. In that case it is homemade Margaritas made with Hornitos.

I'm a diet IBC root beer girl. It' good. Every once in a while (two or three times a year) I'll buy a six-pack or two and drink them. Mostly because they are expensive and heavy to carry home if the grocery store is far, I don't indulge.

I'd rather have orange juice or grape or cranberry in those little plastic bottles -- the single serving size. Those are more refreshing when it's hot out.

Sangria is a favorite... I'm not a sophisticated drinker. I am more interested in taste than effect.

Down in south FL I used to have lunch at a restaurant in the mall because they made a good pina colada. I don't know that I've had one of them for decades. It's just not a priority.

Root beer is the only beer I like.

I just opened up a bottle of my homebrew "Hop Diggity" recipe. A wonderfully aromatic IPA. It is spectacular. Self praise is no praise. Recipe available upon request.

Since you guys like hoppy IPAs like I do, I gotta tell you about a new favorite from Sierra Nevada. I'm a big fan of SN brews, especially the Torpedo Extra IPA. They now have a new IPA made with distilled hop oil called Hop Hunter IPA. My local grocery stores carry it. It's a great tasting IPA with less ABV than the Torpedos! (6.2% vs. 7.2%)

Gotta love a beer that bites back!!

I brought three "torpedoes" aboard the Mahalo Moi recently (Mildred Island). There were two still aboard (I didn't consume any) when we departed. Make sure you get your share!

Review

Appearance: A hazy orange body in the light, this beer is a murky burnt sienna/rust color without direct illumination. It's got a cream to off-white head that is big and clingy! A few minutes after pouring it's still going quite strong. It started at four fingers, and now it's down to one and doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

Smell: Hops. Tons of grapefruit and pineapple up front. There isn't much malt in the aroma, just hops. It's fairly dry smelling and you really can't smell the 6.5% abv at all.

Taste: Now this is the most important part of any beer, especially homebrew. Your friends will put up with an ugly beer that doesn't smell like much if it's delicious. And this one is! Up front there's a ton of bitterness with the Maris Otter malt there just enough to hold it together. There's just enough breadiness to give the hops a great canvas to display on. After a second in your mouth, this beer really shines (and it was good right away). There's tons of hop flavor, a lot of citrus from the American hops. There's pineapple from the Amarillo and grapefruit from the Chinook with the general citrusyness of Cascade rounding the whole thing out. The hops lend this beer a juicy quality, and it's just a great flavor to go on top of a mild sweetness from the malt. It ends on a fruity citrus hop note then, after you swallow, the bitterness persists for a few minutes. You can bet we'll make this one again!

I like fat tire beer. But I'd much rather have coconut rum and sweet iced tea.

My 97-year-old Dad (former B-17 co-pilot and parachuting to be a POW) likes box wines. Hopefully, he'll appreciate Vern's St. Jorge version. We're all in good spirits after watching Mary Poppins at Cabrillo College yesterday and enjoying a restaurant meal on Dad's coin:
