Stormcloud IPA

Any of you not a member of Upromise? Why not? You don't know what Upromise is? OK here's the rundown from my perspective. First let me tell you that Upromise is an advertiser through an affiliate program that I am a member of. But I've been a member of Upromise since 2001, long before this website was in existence. Everything I say will be the honest truth. Trust me, I couldn't retire on the commissions even if thousands of you sign up through these links. It really is a useful and worthy program!

First, Upromise is free. Upromise is a way to help you save for college for your kids or your grandkids or your nephews and nieces or your step-goddaughter's uncle's fifth cousin's teacher's pet. Will you save enough to pay your tuition? Not a chance, but...

...if your future students could use several hundred to a few thousand dollars toward their education, this program is for you. You will save just a little at a time using registered credit cards, registered grocery cards, from thousands of restaurants, from online retailers. Saving that money by doing nothing differently than you already do. I mean, I just bought a birthday gift for my nephew online at Sears via Upromise and saved $2; I bought some brand name pretzels at Publix and saved 3 cents. It really does add up, and when you reach a certain amount saved, you can invest it in a 529 plan to increase the earning potential.

At the very least, check it out. God knows you're not going to give up your beer money for the kid's education instead! Join Upromise and Save for College

Today I'm drinking Stormcloud IPA brewed by Rahr & Sons Brewing in Fort Worth, Texas. This one came back from my friend's Dallas trip as well. You probably recall me mentioning that a few days ago while drinking the other from Rahr that came home, Buffalo Butt, with its eye-searing label. The label on this bottle tells the story of William Rahr, which I guess is a relative, coming over on a voyage through a fierce storm, then celebrating with a beer after their journey was complete.

The aroma is fairly weak, but you will notice some floral and fruitiness to it. Very light hops begin in your mouth, but you will then taste more bready and light caramel flavors. A very small amount of lemon and citrus, maybe a touch of alcohol and that's it before a dry finish. Not like any other IPA I've ever had; that could be a good thing, but this beer was not the go-getter, trend-setting type either. Average, but not bad.
