    Vocation - Smash and Grab. Again...

    Some competition for it this week as I'm due a delivery of 36 cans of Jaipur

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Another reasonable week:

    Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropica*
    Marble/Donzoko Wit-Ness The Citrus
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA
    Braybrooke Smoked Lager
    Marble Berimbolo*
    Northern Monk Heathen IPA*
    Marble Earl Grey IPA*
    Marble Stout*
    Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta*
    Marble Lagonda IPA*
    Thornbridge Pink Grapefruit Halcyon IPA*
    Marble Cross Collar*

    A largely excellent selection although the Jaipur, which I enjoy on cask, didn’t shine in this company.
    The Berimbolo has been flying down again with the warm weather but as I’ve picked it before BOTW goes to Marble Cross Collar. A 5.2% west coast pale which did a very good job of slaking a sunny Saturday afternoon thirst.

    Fastard Towers

    Hawkeshead -- Red (b)
    Howling Hops -- House IPA (c)
    Vocation -- Love & Hate (c)
    Vocation -- Life & Death (c)
    BrewDog -- Elvis Juice (c)
    Howling Hops (collab. with Pressure Drop) (c) -- Lost in Control

    I have been lucky to be able to source so many hoppy and strong IPA style beers,which suits my palate and so first among equals for BOTW was Howling Hops Lost in Control,lots going on and didn't drink like 8.2%.

    Notables this past week were..
    Five Points JUPA
    London Beer Factory Hazy Days
    Magic Rock Saucery
    Magic Rock Dark Arts
    Vocation Life & Death
    Vocation Love & Hate
    Wiper And True Milk Shake Stout
    BrewDog Elvis Juice
    Thornbridge Jaipur

    All very good, at the top I can't really split Vocation Love & Hate and Wiper & True Milk Shake Stout, I'll just go with the 7.2% Vocation, purely on the wow factor on the first sip.

    I think Love And Hate might be my next online order if Smash And Grab doesn't reappear soon. Although I still have 26 of those left to add to today's Jaipur arrival
