Call out the Coast Guard! Notify the Navy! Tell my family I love them, for I’ve been… Kidnapped by Vikings.

Tipping my horned helm to @chicagolandbeerguy for this malty, resiny @solemnoathbeer IPA!

Now this is my kind of Little Mermaid!

Shout out to @chicagolandbeerguy for sending this Imperial Belgian IPA from @pipeworksbrewing my way. Galaxy & Amarillo hops provide a wonderful juiciness that is complimented by the Belgian yeast. If you haven’t already, you should definitely make Derketo a “part of your world”.

Seemed like an appropriate java stop this beautiful Earth Day morning. #GreenMarbleCoffee #MysticCT  (at Green Marble Coffee House)

Enjoying @hillfarmstead’s Excursions #1, the first release in their “new series of IPAs and pale ales exploring new hop varieties, flavor profiles and combinations.”

The Citra & Amarillo lend themselves to a wonderful citrusy/grassy nose & initial bitter bite; but I feel like the experimental Pacific Northwest hop 01210 takes the helm from there & steers a subtle course towards an almost peach-like finish. Not your typical IPA by any means; but a thoroughly enjoyable (and easily drinkable) break from the norm. Thanks again to @markagiuliano for sending this one my way!

#latergram from last night: Putting in some overtime by candlelight with @beerdbrewing’s 8 Days a Week, their fantastic new Citra single-hopped APA.

No gimmicks, no über-stealthy silent releases; just amazing #ctbeer plain & simple, the way it should be.

Thoroughly enjoying my first @solemnoathbeer, Axe Scar Pig - a gorgeous American Red Ale - on this chilly CT evening. Shout out to @chicagolandbeerguy for the awesome hook-up!

Things got about 50 Shades darker during last night’s #bottleshare when @chargingryno cracked open this smoldering beauty from @hillfarmstead. #fearandtrembling

Shifted gears & cranked the hop-dial up to 11 with @beerdbrewing’s Hobbit Juice DIPA. This single hop monster delivers a cave troll-sized punch of Nelson Sauvin that’ll knock your palate all the way back to Bag End… in a good way.

Thanks to Aaren & @preciousbeerdbrewing for sharing this gem!
