Late floater. Holiday's, 66th.
Working on makin' this a short one. Hurricane season has been relatively quiet this year. No much in the way of tropical disturbances. But, September is comin'. Keepin' an eye on the horizon. Surf hasn't been crap. We lack consistency. Me and my piece of this coast. Certainly not as flat as in years past. Had more waist high days. This past week not so much though. NE winds, (F'k, I hate the backsides). Semi-chopped swell. Still warm out...both air and water in the 70s. But we have storm number three coming up from the Bahamas this week...Cristobal. Still a tropical storm, and probably not to become much more. But waves baby. Definitely a swell producer. Like I said, keepin' an eye on the horizon...

A notable brew this report out. Flying Dog's late summer install; Bloodline. A Blood Orange IPA. Bad-Ass I'm tellin' ya. I was worried it was going to be another White IPA. More like a menage a trois of honey, orange, and light grapefruit. Full of stoke this one is. Poured a cloudy orange with a puffy white two-finger head. Thin lacing. Aromas of the honey and blood orange and citrus with the brisk bitterness (40 IBUs) of hops in the finish. Smooth, not overwhelming. Even at 7% ABV not boozy. Couple of these did me well. Rated Bloodline an A."
