The bugs were insane as per usual. Mosquitos, yikes. Fortunately, the deck, before the dock, is now screened in. I usually come home w as many as 30 bites all over but none from the wife
 
Last day of vaca today. Spent the week in Cape May, NJ ("just the tip"). Of course, we had to spend some hours at Cape May Brewery.

The fight was:

Honey Porter Nitro 5.4%
Cape May IPA Nitro 6.3%
Summer Catch Wheat 5.5%
Follow the Gull IPA 5.5%

Contrary to what I posted a few months ago, I'm now investigating IPAs. I'll always love my Belgian Whites/Hefes/Guinness, but my palate is needing something new.

Follow the Gull was a winner---not too bland, not too strong. A good newbie IPA... The Great Wit Shark was excellent. Had to get the matching glass...

Love the glass too. I-P-fuckin'-A! Just the tip. Ha!

Last week I was drinking shandies on the boardwalk in Wildwood N.J.
 
Our local Giant supermarkets now sell alcohol. Continuing with my IPA exploration, on tap last night:

Dogfish Head Brewery--Delaware (we consider it a local brewery)
--Liquid Truth Serum IPA - 7%

Sly Fox--Pottstown PA (a very local brewery, 10 mins from home)
--Vulpulin - 6%

Sweet Water Brewing--Georgia
--IPA--6.3%

Boulevard Brewing--Kansas City
--Space Camper Cosmic IPA - 5.9%

I think I liked the Cosmic IPA the best, followed by the Sweet Water. The Sweet Water had an almost wheat beer texture. The Dogfish Head started fine but it seemed to leave a "dishwater like" aftertaste a minute or two after the last sip. Interesting pull tab on the Sly Fox. First time for me seeing that design.
