2 Row pale, Cara Red, Vienna
Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, Centennial
Do suspect that PBR is the #1 cause of worms.
Truth always makes me think of the John Lennon Song Gimme Some Truth.
Poured into an IPA glass that I bought at World Market. Decent head along with lacing. Aroma has some grapefruit and tropical citrus. Slight hint of malt.
Taste does have plenty of citrus to it. Tropical citrus along with a touch of grapefruit. Malt is just detectable enough. To me. it finishes a bit on the dry side. Nothing wrong with that. Pine is there. Wish the pine was a little bit more upfront. Still a very drinkable beer. Rating of 4.5 still stand.

Pale Ale, Rye, CaraRedHOPSCitra, Mosaic
Have been picking up quite a few books lately. Most have been from Half Price Books. Some from Barnes and Noble online.
In Cedar Hill there is a marker with a blue M&M on it.
Another book from Half Price Books is Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger.
Figured it would go with another book I picked up a few months ago. The Pirate Coast by Richard Zacks.
In Frankfort Cemetery in Frankfort, Kentucky is someone connected to the Barbary Wars.
Presley O'Bannon was in the first barbary war. O'Bannon was the first person to raise a U.S. Flag on foreign soil during war.
Another selection from Half Price Books. The lady that rang me up at the Lane Avenue store thought it was kinda funny over the selection of books that I was getting, Some Civil War books, a book about a serial killer, and a book on Zombie movies. Told her that the selections I get are much weirder from time to time.
Any regular reader of this blog knows that I love India Pale Ales. Is there really any other style of beer that matters? I vote no.
I'm not exactly a big admirer of the artwork on Rhinegeist beers. Nothing too bright, Almost always solid colors. Much like Columbus Brewing Company, great beers, bad artwork. Don't know why some companies go for the less eye appealing artwork, It would be a great way to attract people to the beer.
Poured into my favorite beer glass. Nice head, with just alright lacing. Some citrusy aroma. Tends to lean more towards pineapple.
Plenty of citrus in the taste. Pineapple seems to be the leading flavor. Some nice rye notes to it. Citrus plays nicely with the peppery rye. Little bit of malt. Nice bitterness at the end. I would consider Streaker an everyday drinking rye ipa. Rated it 4.25 out of 5 on Untappd.
