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: Aprihop

It's been several weeks since my last posting about beer.  A little trip to Mexico and a small thing called an Ironman, kind of kept me busy last month.  Now that those are done, I'm going to try and get back to a weekly posting about beer.  This week it's Aprihop from Dogfish Head Brewery.  An established brewery with a penchant for creating unique beers, they always rank among my favorite.  One of the all time best is the 120 minute IPA which is what beer would be if it were booze!  Aprihop, at 7% ABV and 50 IBU's, doesn't pack quite the same punch, but it is a tasty rendering of an IPA.  Light bodied and crisp  the apricot flavor is neither too strong nor too weak.  The "apricot" flavor smooths out the hops a bit, killing most of the bitterness and leaving a pleasant aftertaste.  Cheers!
