    My friend invented it. She is into chemistry and explained it to me. The brita filter removes the impurities and makes a better delivery agent. You still retain the sweet but it makes the juice blend with the gin better somehow. All I know is if you drink to many you will start running blank tape. Make plans beforehand.... Goes well with Nepalese Hash Fingers.... Be very very careful....

    Tried some tasty sake at my buddies sushi place over the weekend. Both of these were super easy drinking and delicious with the fish we were demolishing. Bonus pro tip, Hamachi Kama (Hamachi Collar) is one of the best cuts of fish I've ever eaten.

    I'm not usually a fan of Belgian style beers but this is fucking good. Super complex taste that was fun to pair with different foods (cheese, chocolate, meat, pizza, stir fry). Plus it's 11% so.......

    Have you tried Hamachi Kama (Hamachi Collar)? I was blown away by how sweet and flakey and melt in your mouth it was. It's grilled so not technically "sushi" but I doubt you'd find that cut of fish anywhere other than a sushi spot.

    Scored a bottle of Glenfiddich IPA cask Scotch at a charity auction a couple weeks ago. Finally got around to cracking it open, don't think it's quite worth retail @ $70, but it had an opening bid of $10 and no bidders, so I went $15 so as not to be a dick, and was pleasantly surprised. Not a very strong flavor one way or another, but mild and good sipping.

    Posted this in the ride pics thread but I'm gonna x-post it here cause these are soooooo good. The hazy IPA's are off the hook these days.

    Yeah they are really good. Mostly their hoppy IPA's and dank IPA's. I'd recommend the following:

    Not really. Some just aren't as good as others. They do a good job on the strong IPA's.
