beer tasting of the day.

blind tiger, tavern style pale ale
made by barley island brewery in noblesville Indiana
 review by: gmfessen 
"3.53/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
 Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a slightly hazy, golden-orange color with a one-finger, soapy looking head. The smell is of citrus and pine resin hops, not overwhelming and a slight malty background. The taste starts and ends with the same hops from the nose with some malty notes tossed in along the way. There is a residual bitterness about the beer. The mouthfeel is light in body and adequately carbonated. Overall, not a bad offering, nothing too spectacular either though." 

*Personal opinion: Defently stronger on the hop than than malt, a little heavier than my preference and maybe not in my top favorite list, but still enjoyable in my book.

newest beer tasting

Beer of the Week: Tommyknocker Brewery’s Hop Strike Black India Pale Ale BY DI STAFF | JULY 07, 2011 7:20 AM The Beer of the Week is Tommyknocker Brewery’s Hop Strike Black India Pale Ale. Brewed in Idaho Springs in the Colorado mountains, the heavily hopped brew is characterized by a dark, heavy body, spicy citrus hops, and chocolate malt flavors. “Black IPA beers are really a new big thing in American craft brewing,” said Joe Hotek, the beer-room manager at John’s Grocery, 401 E. Market St. “They’re a really nice combination of a stout and an IPA.” According to Tommyknocker’s website, Hop Strike uses chinook, summit, and Willamette hops, along with seven varieties of malts to achieve a distinct flavor that also makes a “great first impression on the nose.” And at 7 percent alcohol by volume, the beer is particularly strong. Hotek said Tommyknocker’s Hop Strike Black IPA — like most IPA brews — drinks well on its own, but it can nicely complement any spicier dishes. — by Brian Albert *Very similar to 1554 or my own chocolate beer, it's a dryer, darker beer but with no bitterness. a heavy hint like guiness but with no where near the same weight. My approval: 5 stars. a good relaxing beer, not a getting drunk and drinking all night beer. But since relaxing is my favorite kind of drinking... :)

Good ol Louis has to be my favorite brand ever. Not too stuffy but still clean and classy with an edge of funtastic

welcome back curly hair.

after going a year without my curly hair, i couldnt stand it anymore... no more straight hair for me :) and i love this too.

I'm just full of updates and changes in life. lol. But i still love all of it.
Now if i could just get that darn house finished i would have a real party :)

since i switched to apple 7 yrs ago..

The main reason for the purchase of my first apple was that i needed a laptop and i wanted something with a long life.... and to this day i still have my first apple laptop. and i still love for...

So of course when my battery went out and i still wanted to take my laptop with me i decided it was time for a new piece of equipment ... hence the ipad.

After realizing how well the two work together i decided that the iphone would eventually happen. However .it took a bit before my phone provider came out with my new want... and at that they were asking 600 for it! ... while i dont mind spending extra for a good thing, i'm not so willing to just go around throwing away money..

So when my husband told me there was a carrier that would sell it to me for 100 and give me better coverage and would give him a free smart phone in the process... i was game.

So i'm officially a mac junky.
I officially have the phone i've been craving.
I officially have internet access at any point (im blogging from work right now.)
and all my product work together :) yay.

.. thats all. i was just excited and wanted to share with you :)
