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: Modus Mandarina

Quick post tonight before dinner.  This is for Modus Mandarina.  It's from Durango, Colorado's Ska Brewing.  The side of the can describes it as an IPA dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria Hops and then brewed with Orange Peels.  If the orange can doesn't make you think of oranges then the aroma definitely will.  This IPA is different.  There's certainly an orange undertone here, and the hops are smoother; there isn't the piney bite that most IPA's possess.  Think honey, oranges and an almost amber ale like finish (you'll still find a bit of bitterness when all is said and done).   A can or two of this one is going into my reserves and I'm inclined to pick up another six pack.  It's a likely candidate for my top beers of 2015.  6.8% ABV.  Drink a couple of 'em at home.
