63. Short's Brewing Company (Elk Rapids, MI) - Slurm Lord Double New England Style India Pale Ale

“Slurm Lord is a double New England style India Pale Ale brewed with oats and a blend of Citra, Azacca, Amarillo, El Dorado, and Mosaic hops.”

And lots more in the description on their website, but let’s just go with this for simplicity. Nice tropical notes up front and nice, but not overwhelming alcohol (at least for a double). The fruit seems to be hidden a little bit, and I probably should have talked it up before the fourth of four. Ah, well. Perhaps we’ll meet again, some day, on the avenue…

62. Triton Brewing Co. (Indianapolis, IN) - Pale Splitter APA

“A brilliant and well-balanced, unfiltered American Pale Ale brewed with Cascade, Columbus, Galena, and Magnum hops then dry-hopped with Citra! A bright, citrusy 'Split' from the pale and drab.”

The four-pack I got was over-carbonated, but it is nicely balanced. A caramelly sweetness at first and then a bitter finish, but maybe a little too much variety with the hops. Nothing really stands out.

61. Indiana City (Indianapolis, IN) - Mythical Apothecary

“Whirlpool additions of Citra, Belma, and Falconer’s Flight, dry hopped with Amarillo, Zythos, & Citra Lupulin powder. This beer boasts massive lemon and tropical fruit flavors.”

Hazy like a milkhake and sharp like a challenging IPA, the flavors are a little bit muted by the alcohol, though this is not necessarily a bad thing. Give the lemon a couple of minutes to come to you. Indiana City is quietly doing some really lovely beer, and this is one of their best.

Deep Thoughts #175d

But without the white sheets and hoods, the only Republicans left on earth would be spineless afterbirths like Susan Collins and Jeff Flake.

Deep Thoughts #175c

Yeah, I know…if they had the intellectual capacity to formulate any good ideas, they wouldn’t be allowed to wear the white sheets and hoods.

Deep Thoughts #175b

The new Republican strategy seems to be to lie to pollsters or not respond at all. What if they used that energy to have good ideas instead?

Deep Thoughts #175a

What if Republicans could think instead of lie, or form their own opinions instead of taking orders from Fox News? The world may never know.

Deep Thoughts #174

Best thing about last night’s election is that Mike Delph now gets to shut his homophobic mouth and go the fuck home. Down with Republicans!

Deep Thoughts #173

People voted for Republicans last night. You are all ignorant. Every single one of you. The party of McConnell and Trump is no longer valid.

Deep Thoughts #172

Indiana is just a terrible state, filled almost all the way to the brim with ignorant bumpkins. I fucking hate that I live in this shithole.
