Ray of Sunshine

Day #461 Rayon Vert / Green Flash Brewing Company, San Diego, CA
Previously from this brewery: Imperial IPA (complete with Lego Star Wars), Palate Wrecker, a sampler, and Linchpin IPA

Congratulations!  We've made it to another weekend, thankfully all in one piece.  It's been a stressful week in the office, but I think a nice, quiet, relaxing Friday afternoon should help me unwind.  It's good to unwind.  Plus, a beer never hurt the unwinding process, right?

Because it's Friday, you're probably not going to read this (although you should!), so I'll keep it simple with one of my go-to beers, Rayon Vert from Green Flash Brewing.  In the glass, this pours a bright yet hazy dark yellow color, with an enormous white fluffy head.  The aroma is a wonderful mix of citrus and bread, and when you take a sip you find a delightful combination of Brettanomyces funk, lemon and orange, biscuit and bread, peppery spice, and just the right bit of bitterness.  A wonderful beer, and one that lands in my Top 25 without a doubt.  Find this and try one for yourself - but be prepared for the giant head to form in your glass.
Tastes better than this picture looks
Green Flash recently announced they're opening an East Coast brewery in Virginia Beach, VA.  Thanks for not picking Chester County, PA, jerks.....

Thing to Think About Today:
In honor of Rayon Vert, we focus on the Ray.  Prepare yourselves for some Ray Charles and Van Morrison on the ever so wonderful Crazy Love.  Hope you all had a pleasant Friday....

"And when I come to her, that's where I belong...."
