Let's see if we can give this thread a long run.  Post up what you are consuming, restaurant, homemade, just something you are really enjoying at the moment, whatever......

It is Saturday afternoon.  The wife is not home.  And I have no plans.  For lunch I just made myself a plate of Yancy's Fancy Bergenost cheese, good pepperoni, and an assortment of crackers.  Opened a bottle of Ovila Saison to quench my thirst.  Life is good.

How about you?

Left over zonies from last nights 3:30 am order, and some OJ leftover from lastnight.  Livin the college dream.

Had the boys over for drinks last night which inevitably led to ordering some pizza.  Now I'm putting in extra time at the office eating cold, stale pizza and feeling like sh*t.  I've got a prime rib roast ready to go for tomorrow though.

A bagel feast from what I believe to be the best bagel place on the planet, which is 2.5 blocks from my house.

Just made cheese quesadillas and chocolate milk for the kids.

Derek Roy can't take everything from me.

And:  I'm making wings tomorrow night for the NFL games.

I'm debating whether to watch the game at the bar tonight, or fire up a leg of lamb to pick on for the weekend and the football games tomorrow. Usually only do it for Easter, but I have a hankerin. Stuff it with garlic cloves and Pecorino Romano and rub it with rosemary, sage and pepper. Hmm....Sabres, or leg of lamb?

Only one of those choices is going to be satisfying when it's over.

So here's what I came up with:  Chicken breast that came with some honey mustard for dipping, but instead, I'm using some bacon jam* from an unopened jar (well, it was unopened) tucked away in my office for a day when I need to combat blandness.  And some broccoli.

I love lamb.  Try roasting the shoulder sometimes.  Holy mackerel is that good.

What do you think of Alpine Spring?  Haven't seen it around here just yet.  I'll try it out and try not to let my predjudices get in the way of it.

I am about to enjoy a gourmet grilled ham & cheese sandwich with an apple, banana, and some steamfresh broccoli for dinner.  The general healthiness of this meal will be destroyed with some Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale, and depending on how awful the game is later, some Crown Royal.

I like the Alpine Spring. The Winter Lager is all done here - and loved that TOO much! - so onto this. It will be a good warmer weather beer IMO.

Made mac and cheese for the kid and to make it palatable, added some real cheddar and smoked gouda.  As soon as she goes to bed (no nap so I'm hopin' for 6:30) will be mixing up a Tanqueray martini (dirty, two olives).

For dinner: sockeye salmon baked with my own topping - a mix if brown sugar, chili pepper, onion powder, black pepper and assorted other spices that catch my eye. To go along with it, a Brussels sprout and bacon bake, drizzled with olive oil, cracked black pepper and sea salt, and for a starch, red quinoa.

To drink : a mixed six of IPA's - green flash, weyerbachacher simcoe ipa, great divide IPA, Breckinridge brewery double hopped IPA, acme IPA and stone IPA.

Going to follow that up with my own Islay scotch tasting. Laphroig 10 yr, Caol Ila 12 yr, and Ardberg Corryvreckan, a cask strength of undetermined age.

No matter what the Sabres do tonight, I win!

Post what you think of Simcoe IPA.  I'll chime in with my own thoughts after I hear yours.  I don't want to color your opinion beforehand.

Cloudy orange cider color, lots of carbonation. Nice flowery nose despite sitting outside all day with a high of 20 degrees. Dry on the palate, very little hop flower on the tongue. Nice bitter finish. You can tell its 9% late. That's all I've got. I'd get it again. These things will fuvk you up.

No piney resin hop flavor? Thats what i usually get from Simcoe hops, but ive never had the Weyerbacher. Good call on going to the 9% first.

Simcoe is known for another flavor in particular too.  But it seems not everyone is tuned to get it.  I'm waiting for Korab to finish and then I'll chime in.

I would give it some pine. I'm not as colorful as you guys with my tasting notes. It's very delicious and highly drinkable for 9%.

LOL Nothing colorful about what I was thinking.  There seems to be a segment of the population that detect the distinct flavor and aroma of cat piss out of simcoe hops.  One of the other forums I am active on is a brewing forum.  One of the members there is a brewer for Sierra Nevada Brewing.  He claims SN avoids Simcoe in all of their recipes because they don't want a small group of beer enthusiasts to yell SN tastes like cat piss on beer forums.

Personally, I don't get cat piss out of Simcoe beers.  I get big pine and citrus notes.
