Who is Ted?

I'm the father of two beautiful daughters and an amazing wife. For fun, I enjoy the long hours of seemingly endless suffering that endurance sports (mostly running, cycling and triathlon)provide. During my "down time" I'm an avid beer snob and self-described gourmet chef (in other words I like to burn things on a stove or grill).

Beer of the Week: Stone Go To IPA

Another week, another hoppy beer.  This summer has been proclaimed as the summer of the Session IPA so here goes.  In case you didn't know, a sessionable beer is generally one that is lower in alcohol and can be sampled multiple times in one "session,"  hence the term.  Stone is a Southern California Brewery known for crafting high quality beers.  They definitely have a soft spot for hops.  I'll let you visit their web site for the brewing details.  Here's how this one goes down.  The aroma and initial taste would lead you to believe that this is "standard" IPA.  Floral, grassy, and definitely hop-laden.  The mouth-feel is light-bodied and very crisp.  This follows into the finish which is, while still light bodied, also very bitter.  It's in the finish where you come to see it's a session IPA.  Great beer for a Hot Summer's day or night!
