I took a nice long break from the blog. I got a new job, which I love and I started getting into reading. I may add a portion to the posts highlighting which books I’m reading, but we’ll see. Let’s get back into it.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “‘Africa’ is a song recorded by the American rock band Toto in 1981, for their fourth studio album Toto IV, and released as the album’s third single on September 30, 1982, through Columbia Records. The song was written by band members David Paich and Jeff Porcaro. The soft rock song lyrically incorporates themes of love and location. Critics praised its composition and Toto’s performances. The song reached number one on the United States’ Billboard Hot 100 chart and is the band’s only Billboard number one. The song remained at the top for a single week (February 5, 1983). “Africa” also peaked in the top ten in the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, and Switzerland.”
Random: I’m almost done watching “The Irishman.” It’s really good.
The beer poured with a three finger, off white head that dissipated slowly. It left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and bright yellow. I couldn’t see how much carbonation there was. The nose started with a lot of citrus, specifically tangerine and grapefruit. Mango was present as well. The taste mirrored the nose. It was a definite citrus bomb with the mango more pronounced. It also had some freshly cut grass. There was a noticeable alcohol note to this, but the body was medium thickness with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with citrus. I thought this was a decent beer and I would have it again.
