    lol, I used that one as the immediate palate cleanser. If their was no other choice, it would be my choice. Luckily there is choice.

    I’m really enjoying this beer as a break from my usual hoppy stuff. This is one of a few collabs Ommegang does with Liefmans. Very nice, not too sour or overdone.

    I’m also having my first positive IEM listening experience with Kato hence the nightstand pic. It’s nice to listen in bed sometimes.

    Back at my favorite local brewery- Rapp Brewing Company.

    Rapp Bastard Dunkelweizen - the beer I come here for:

    C8CACC0F-013A-4280-92E8-DE2A18F52072.jpeg

    Northern German Alt - so good, so drinkable, so much tasty malts:

    8B29CD43-9DD9-44FA-8F48-46EC5563EC1C.jpeg

    Belgian IPA - This one tames the IPA hoppiness and gives a unique spice that’s different from the standard Belgian styles. It was a sharper spice. I really liked it.

    @shotgunshane so Rapp had no hurricane flooding? good for them. would have labeled your post Epic but you included the eye-pee-Ay. you know the limits of excellence. :piratemug:

    @jexby The Clearwater/Pinellas park area was very lucky when the hurricane turned at the last moment. No damage around here.

    Yeah I’m definitely not an IPA fan but it’s hard to avoid in Florida (much like California). I’ll happily take a Belgian IPA over any other IPA, and this was the only Belgian style they had at this time. German is their specialty and the main reason I come.

    Now, if I could find a Belgian specialist in my area of Florida, that wound become my home away from home.

    Corsendonk Agnus Tripel. New to me. A light and airy Belgian blonde with smooth character A reserved spice with slight citrus flavor. Very thirst quenching.

    Love Corsendonk. Their “Bruin” is one of my favorites. It was on tap in a bar down in the Village I used to visit a lot.

    In the spirit of those intrepid scientists who kept observing & recording what ultimately killed them - e.g. Marie Curie, David Johnston - I present my preliminary conclusions in case I don't make it any further:

    Any hop with a name that doesn't seem like it should belong to a hop is best left out of the beer.

    Lowlights so far are Cashmere, Sultana & Victoria Secret. I admit I'd hoped for great things from the last one, but it came off more like a yeast infection.
