|Pines shoreline, Ocean Pines, MD.|
Literally writing this completely the night before. Short post leading into an off-centered (Sat thru Tue) weekend trip to the Right Coast. House hunting in the Ocean Pines and West O areas. Got money to spend. Not that we want to, but this is to be a long time/full time Coastal Dig. Got to get it right. Means excitement. Means stoke. Means angst.
Beer to prepare. Brickstone Brewery, a newbie for the Rogue outta Bourbonnais, IL Where the hell Bourbonnais is leaves me at a loss. Regardless, they are on hop point. The American Pale (APA) poured a shimmering orange with a finger and half fluff of head. Solid lacing and carbonation. Floral aromas with hints of apricot and melon. 45 IBUs of hop bite that tasted of grapefruit citrus and pine with a toffee background. The ABV of 6.25% made for a solid brew without too much of a spanking. I rated this a B+/A-.
