Went to the store directly after work in search of something new. The Drakes seasonal IPA caught my eye because it's got a fun 70's summer design. Also it's seasonal so I figure I may as well try it while I can.
Beer 2 - 6:38 pm
Okay there has been a development. I just did some research and found out that these things are only 4.3 percent alcohol, 51 IBUs. As you can imagine this news was super disappointing and I feel like an idiot for not looking at that before hand. Thing is, I am an idiot. Gonna have to ride it out now. I guess I'm gonna drink 6 beers tonight just to end up not that drunk and pretty full. Fun. Still enjoying the taste of the beer, if that matters.
Beer 3 - 8:31 pm
Big gap in time here because I went out and got sushi with the girlfriend. Back home now. Back on the couch, kicking back with a light IPA. Didn't even know those existed. We're watching American Ninja Warrior. I've found that the two most agreeable shows with a diverse group of people are Shark Tank and American Ninja Warrior. No one really complains. They're super easy to pick up on a first watch and short enough segments to keep peoples attenton.
Beer 5 - 10:26 pm
We've moved on from American Ninja Warrior and have started the first episode of Black Mirror. My god what an opening this show has. Gripping introductory plot. As for the beer, I understand why this is a seasonal brew. It's refreshing and light while still maintaining the IPA flavor. Perfect as a day drink to cool you down in the summer heat. To drink 6 on a Friday night in late October? Wouldn't recommend it.
Beer 6 - 11:08 pm
On the second episode of Black Mirror so I'm basically depressed now. The sixth beer went down smooth. I drank it faster then I expected myself too. I don't fully hate this beer. I hate that I didn't realize it was 4.3 percent. I can't pin that on them though. That's on me. I'm not a smart person. In the end you can only grade something on what it is trying to be and Kick Back is a good summer seasonal beer.
3.5 / 5
If you have a suggestion for a beer to review. Let us know.
