Monkey Knife Fight

Stone 16th Anniversary Celebration – Sample #7 Grassy nose, sweet cereals on the palate. Can’t resist a monkey. Or a fight.

Hopsauce Double IPA

A nice, long walk this morning, followed by an exciting drive in Randy’s Jeep (which I totally plan to avoid driving in the future–no left arm space unless you hang out the window like a leadfooted Big Daddy Roth monster). A little bit of grocery shopping. Retail therapy. La Hacienda for dinner. I needed a cheese enchilada. Time to kick it: KCSM, a manuscript, and an adult beverage. Tonight, I’m cracking open a Rubicon Hopsauce Double IPA. Hopsauce? Promising.

Rosebud Special Ale

Rubicon Rosebud has hints of rose and molasses up front. Nice, creamy head. Heavy on the tongue; creamy and fruity, but with bright carbonation. Lacing like esoteric calligraphy. Sweet and malty, but only mildly hoppy. Cherries?
