Within a four-person group, the effort felt intense. However, it had been just the fourth run since the Akron Marathon for two of us, a third was just off a half marathon this past weekend, and the fourth was hacking and wheezing the whole way.
The only motivation to finish strong was the realization that I had beer at home. Get done. Get back. Get clean. Then get drinking.
|Widmer Bros. Pitch Black IPA|
The beer pours as black as a porter or stout with a half-inch of fizzy light brown head. The taste is slightly sweet with hints of citrus. The overall character is a nice balance between sweet malts and bitter hops.
Black IPA is also known as American Black Ale or Cascadian Dark Ale.
How does it rate compared to Pabst Blue Ribbon, you ask? If PBR ranks a 10 on your scale, then you're more moronic than I thought. The Pitch Black IPA is quite drinkable and well worth further research.
