Good stuff, this Hoppin' Cretin IPA.
On the boat in a bit of a blow this time. Safely tied up in my slip.

I'm the heretic this morning... drinking hot tea, my version of Earl Grey that is lots less expensive than the brand name. Details on how to make your own, plus Constant Comment too in this article: http://janice142.com/Articles/DIYBigelowTea.html

Enjoy.

Natty Boh!

After 3 or 4, they actually start to taste good.

Natty Boh has made quite a comeback in the Baltimore area in the last two years. Many places have it on tap. It's still a lousy beer but miles better than the the beer masquerading as beer called Budweiser.

Gotta love a beer that bites back!!

American craft brewers make quality lagers and ales but I just don't understand their fixation with tons of hops. Yes, I see see having a hoppy offering but so many craft brewers offer just big, hoppy ales with maybe a milder ale for the "wimps". IMHO, a good beer has balance, sweetness balanced by more hops for example. In food cooking if one were to use tons of garlic in a dish, the other flavors and the food itself would be overwhelmed. That is how I find most American beers. To my taste, virtually any German beer is a better choice. I find hem to be universally well-balanced some of which are on the bitter (hoppy) side. Give me a German or Belgian beer any day. To those IPA fans try a Ballantine India Pale Ale. The Ballantine offering has been around for decades and may be the original American-made IPA. It is highly hopped, high in alcohol and has a solid oak flavor, as any IPA should have. Be careful.

I'm not drinking it now but I wish I were - a black as coal beer called 10 Below from Scuttlebutt Brewing in Everett, Washington. They did a special run in cedar barrels, faint notes of hamster cage the cedar was so strong, but very interesting and a good note in a porter. It was excellent but I can't get it here in SoDak. If I had known I would have bought some in Everett and risked flying it home in my checked luggage.

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA

I'm not a fan of beers with fruit in them, but someone convinced me to try Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA at a bar last year. It was delicious, refreshing, not fruity at all, and satisfyingly hoppy. It was the best beer I had in 2015. On tap... I bought a few bottles at the store ($$$) and it wasn't as good.
