So, Fuz comes into town and we have a chance to get a beer.
What’re ya gonna do?
You’re gonna drink an imperial wheat IPA, that’s what you’re gonna do.
In a way, this is a preview to the 31st, when Bailey’s 3rd anniversary event happens. There will hopefully be more people in my party but Fuz and I will, in our own way, form the core of people there to amuse ourselves on interesting beers.
As a matter of fact, it’s him who points out the Cascade Imperial Wheat has a metallic flavor-an interaction, he thinks, between the wheat and the hops. Personally, I like what the wheat has done for the mouthfeel of this beer; it’s softer, a bit fuller, but the metallic sensation is a twinge off putting. Too bad, because I want to like this brew. Unfortunately for the both of us, Fuz’s Double Brown on nitro doesn’t fare much better. The coffee nose is a bit too strong for my tastes, and this brown on nitro just doesn’t seem to benefit much.
That’s OK though; Great Divide’s Yeti awaits and GD never disappoints.
We’re a nerd couple tonight-Fuz is doing some work on his laptop and I’m doing this blogpost. It’s almost adorable.
I feel a bit calmer here. After the Local is done I think I’ll come back to Bailey’s again. Not just because the beer selection offers more variety; the space just offers me the ability to settle my mind and observer a little more.
Not that my adventures are done. Oh no. There are some wonderful places to visit and I don’t want to be found lacking-but it’s always good to find a few home bases.
One thought on “52 Weeks 53: Cascade Imperial Wheat IPA”
The physicists last night didn’t measure up to the “fucking professor of this shit” towards the end of your first 52-week run.
Also: somebody should tell the physicists that the pirate meme is almost obsolete. Its event horizon is decidedly nearing.
