It's the weekend, and you can't possibly be interested in reading about little old me. I kid; of course you are. However, I won't slow down your Friday night with my tales of work and plans for the weekend (hint: yoga!), so let's go ahead and get down to business.
Tonight's beer is the Double IPA from Shawnee Brewing Company. This one was on draft at Pinnochio's, a pizzeria/beer garden in Media, PA. It pours a hazy light amber, with a thin head. You pick up an aroma of citrus and some light malt notes. There are flavors of lemon and some toffee, with a nice bitter finish. Despite being 7.5% ABV, this beer is rather easy drinking. From the brewery website, it appears they're working on a kriek beer, which I very much look forward to sampling.

Sound like an amazing movie? No, when you put it that way, probably not. Yet it's an absolutely hilarious film - starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker - and one I clearly need to re-watch as soon as possible. 'Cause it's Friday.....
