Oskar Blues Brewing Pinner Throwback IPA

Greetings and Salutations (sorry, I just watched Heathers with Christian Slater and Wynona Ryder last night with daughter #1 and we've been quoting the movie all day....).  I hope you are having a great Sunday.  just poured a Pinner from Oskar Blues Brewery.  They call it a "Throwback IPA", not sure why?  Maybe it's because of the 4.9% alcohol in this session ale?  You can "Throwback" a few more that usual without the effects?  Not Sure.

I do know why they named it Pinner - according to the webiste (see link below) a "Pinner" is a tiny, thin joint low on marijuana content.  Now why would Oskar Blues (a brewery in the cannibus legal state of Colorado) name a beer with this moniker and also have a quote just under 
the top of the can "Can I be Blunt?".  Maybe because they are a bit loopy?  No, you see cannibus and the lowly hop plant share a common taxonomy, in that the plants are in the same family (namely the "cannabacae" family for all you botanists out there).  Hey - you learn a new thing every day is my motto - never knew that, but it makes sense as many of the aromas I love in beer kinda smell like fresh leaves.  

This beer is bursting with dry hopped goodness - although the stated IBU is just 35.  The hops are not listed, but I am guessing either Mosaic or Eldorado, or perhaps both.  I'll be back for more and love the can and the color scheme - looks just like a Cream Soda....

2012 Sebastiani B-Side Cabernet

A wonderful spring afternoon out here on the left coast - gonna hit around 85.  Perfect time for grillin.  Tonight I've got some Kabobs prepped up and ready to hit the grill paired with chocolae covered strawberries for desert.  I thought a nice hearty Cab would go well with both, so picked up a B-Side Cabernet down at the local wine shop.

This Cabernet starts with the very distinctive vegetal Cabernet flavor that I am not a huge fan of, but then the fruit forward notes start adding up and swiftly overcome it..  Bluebery, Plum, Cherry predominate with some smoke and leather on the backside.  Not the best Cabernet I've ever tasted, but very solid - it looks like they have a Red Blend as well - I'll need to track that one down.
