Another fun Friday in store for tonight. Just joking we've got no plans. I grabbed a six pack of Hop Nash because it's from a brewery I haven't tried yet, Uinta. Not sure how you pronounce that. My girlfriend Kaity is going to drink a six pack with me and give her reviews. She says she'll finish all six but I have my doubts.
Jimmy is in blue. Kaity is in pink.
7:58 - There's a lot of flavor in these mouthfuls. Big citrus upfront and a good amount of hop bitterness that tingles my tongue throughout every sip. I'm making chorizo potstickers as I drink this first beer. Not sure if chorizo and an IPA pair together well but also pretty sure that anything pairs well with an IPA.
7:58 - Yummmmm this taste like rusty water. I don’t know how I’m going to drink six of these, but I refuse to back down from this challenge. It’s nice and hoppy but has a mild body. It leaves the same aftertaste in your mouth as baking chocolate, the straight up cocoa kind.
8:50 - The food is done and I can now update you that the beer does go well with the chorizo. I think we all knew it would. Kaity is pretty drunk, she facetimed her friend who lives in Utah and we found out that this brewery is from there. Proud of Utah for making a beer that's 7.3 percent and 82 IBUs. Feel like that's big moves for them. The more I drink of these beers the more I am enjoying them, which is not always the case.
9:25 - Wow. It is now 9:40 and I’m half way through this one. Now I get why people say I babysit my beers. It tastes more like beer and less like rusty water now, so that’s pretty cool. I’m still able to type in coherent sentences. Three down- three to go.
9:58 - We've got some friends over now and are playing Mexican train. I highly recommend Mexican train as a casual game. It's easy enough that you can still have conversations while playing. But involves enough strategy to keep your mind occupied in the downtime. Also I'm still enjoying this beer.
10:52 - WASTED. Got nothing else to say. WHITE FLAG. Jimmy wins. He will now drink my 6th beer. I don’t think I’ll ever drink this beer again, only because I drank five of these in a row.
10:39 - Big ups to Kaity. I was giving her shit for not being able to finish and she has been chugging along. She's also playing a game she has never played before and not completely holding up the process. In the end this beer is good. I don't think the balance is great. It's more bitter than it is malt or citrus.
11:52 - Kaity has gone to sleep so I am drinking her last beer for her. Hope she doesn't puke in my bed. This is a good beer. Not my favorite ever but serviceable for a night.
