Beer Pick: Terrapin Capt’n Krunkles Black India Pale Ale

Terrapin Capt’n Krunkles Black India Pale Ale
Terrapin Beer Co., Athens
$7.99/ 22-ounce bottle; also available on draft at select beer bars and restaurants.

Profile: Volume 10 of the ongoing Terrapin Side Project series has a split personality. Capt’n Krunkles looks like a stout but drinks like a big IPA. Dark Munich and DH Carafa III malts give it a tar black color with a thick tan head. A hefty combination of six different hop varieties, including Centennial and Simcoe, impart a profusion of bitterness. Citrus and cocoa notes complete the picture of a crazy brew aimed at adventurous imbibers.

Pair with: Match the bitterness, citrus and cocoa in Capt’n Krunkles with spicy Mexican dishes such as mole poblano with chicken or turkey. The layers of heat and spice in Jamaican jerk pork with black beans would make another fun pairing.

I finally tried this beer last week. I have wanted to brew a black IPA and this has inspired me. I think it is more toasty than hoppy, however it is very hoppy. A wonderful balance of hops and dark malts. Spike did another great job. I would love to see this as a seasonal, or a year rond brew.

A great beer that’s even better in a dry hopped cask

**********BREAKING NEWS***************

Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee in Alabama voted to approve the use of medical marijuana.

Yeah you heard it right……. Alabama.

Where is Georgia? Our legislature isn’t even having this discussion. They spend their time talking about abortion and guns.

I think we’re behind in GA because “progressive” columnists like Jay Bookman never discuss the issue. And the AJC never has any articles about the subject. The newspapers and the state representatives in Alabama are more forward-thinking than the ones in GA.

Newspapers all over the country are having this discussion. But not the so-called “liberal” (what a joke) AJC.

So Alabama is discussing medical marijuana, while people in Georgia can’t even buy beer on Sundays.
