Thankfully, there's a beer meaner than that 40th to take it's place. The Mighty 109! Yep, my big IPA with 109 calculated IBU's is now in the fridge. Here, introduce yourselves:
It's a standard orange colored thing, yep. It's only partially carb'ed right now, and still fairly warm.. but first impression leaves me thinking about grapefruit and oranges and ..Dogfish 90 Minute? It's got a little residual sweetness and a lot of resiny-hops in this glass to give me hints of the 90 Minute, but not nearly as sticky, and of course, Dogfish don't got no grapefruit in it. That's what, Amarillo? I think Amarillo does that.. fair enough. There's plenty of Amarillo in here. BTW, this one checks in at 7.8% abv. Keep an eye on that one, eh?
Other than that, there's news on the chile front. The what? Check it:
Chile's. Six plants total, starting out small. Three jalapeno's and three habanero's. Hope I can get some garden space! I also called around for some horseradish, my newest love, and found a place in Torrington that'll be getting them, but not for a week or three. They'll call hen they're in. Stay tuned. Apparently, horseradish is a perennial. that's what grows year after year, right? Well, that's what horseradish is. Supposedly grows like, 5 feet tall and is a nice looking plant, and then in te fall when the leaves die off, you dig the plant up and pull the roots up and grind 'em up for pickling to make horseradish sause. You keep one and replant that one in the ground and it winters there and then re-sprouts in the spring. Nice.
