Smith’s Billiards is the place tonight and the brew is Stone Sublimely Self Righteous. Pours deep dark reddish/black with big head that dissipates and loads of lacing all over. Semi sweet malty and hop nose. Taste is mouth biting right off but then pulls back with just a little sting.
The bar tender talked me in to another one!
Smuttynose “Finestkind” IPA pours amber/wheat in color with nice fluffy head and clumpy lacing on glass. Citrus nose with earthy qualities. Taste is hoppy in general with some back bite that settles back in for a second run at it.
Walking back to vehicle I found Springfield’s finest running blocking interference for a crew painting crosswalk lines. And most cars were running over the cones! I made it home safe though and can’t wait till next week when a couple of guys from shop may go with me?
