Spine Bender Bitter on a Mother's Day
Happy Mothers Day to all! Kicking back this afternoon and getting ready to grill up some steaks for the family and the very best Mother my 2 daughters could have. Poured an interesting homebrew brewed up by Brent at his Isolated Desert Compound Brewery. This is a Bitter with a couple of extra hops thrown in - El Dorado and Ahtanum to be specific. Love the malt profile and the hops are an great adjunct to that. This beer is a collaboration between Brent and Greg Lonesome of the Rock N Roll Manifesto and I know they are making some changes to the second batch. I think that it is great the way it is! It will be interesting which direction they go, though.... If it was me I'd try a single hop variant with the Bitter profile and see what a bunch of Mosiac hops would taste like, but - hey - I'm no brewer....
Special thanks go out to Brent for the beer and I hope he likes the Ninkasi that I sent him in return.
