Have you ever picked a beer based on the can art?

Have you ever picked a beer based on the can art?  I’ll admit it, I did it.  And it was an excellent choice!

It was during the Frederick trip for World MS Day that I wanted to grab a 4 pack when we headed out and I needed to make a quick decision.  If you know me, you could have guessed the sunflower can art got my attention.

(See our Trip to Frederick MD.)


Amy showing off the guns (and I guess her tattoo too)

I’ve shared in another article I live with depression and anxiety (see Amy’s article from last year – Brewfests with Anxiety)  I got this awesome sunflower tattoo as a symbol to always fight for my happiness despite the depression and anxiety.  So, naturally I grabbed a 4 pack of the Full bloom. 

Full Bloom by Idiom Brewing Company

To my delight it felt like the stars….I should say it felt like the sunflowers aligned and it was the perfect beer over a cookout this past weekend.  Full Bloom comes in with a sneaky 11% ABV.  This Triple New England IPA is delicious and smooth, maybe a little too smooth.  It paired perfectly with the chicken, spinach and feta sausages I drank it with.  It has an average rating on Untapped at 4.02, which is a bit low in my opinion.  There is one review on untapped that says “May just be my new favorite” according to Meredith S., so I know I am in good company.

Full Bloom

Beer: Full Bloom
Brewery: Idiom Brewing Co.
Style: IPA – Triple New England / Hazy
ABV: 11%
IBU: N / A
Untappd Description: Full bodied and deceivingly smooth, this Triple was brewed with a mix of toasted golden naked oats and flaked oats. On top of this lush base, we threw Lotus and Citra Incognito hops into a low-temp whirlpool and then double dry-hopped with Ella, Lotus and Vic Secret. Juicy, creamy and full of a mix of nuanced flavors, like candied grape, orange, vanilla, tropical fruits and a touch of star anise.
Global Average Untappd Rating: 4.02

That first sip is light and tantalizing at the same time.  This Triple IPA is the smoothest TIPA that has ever danced across my tongue. You get a few more swigs in you and you can feel that 11% tickling you.  According to Scott on Untapped It is “Great balance.  Sneaky 11% for sure!” The only thing I know for sure is I’m gonna try to hustle down there again soon to grab another 4 pack.  Because I have one left and I’m already looking at it like “My precious”

My Preciousssssss…….

Weekly Column

Amy is back with her weekly column; just eight (8) days behind. Last week was a bit of a hectic week for Amy and Ben. Friday through Monday – Ben was with Drew in Atlantic City. Monday and Tuesday Amy was very busy with her tremendous work with the Alzheimer’s Association; so she took the week off from her weekly column. (Its ok Amy, we’ll forgive you this one time.)

Last night was Ben’s father’s 69th birthday. (Happy Birthday Paw Paw.) Between the festivities and Amy doing a dogsit she decided to wait until tonight (Monday, June 12th, 2023) for her weekly column.

But we certainly weren’t slacking here at The Beer Thrillers. You can read about our trip to Frederick last Tuesday – (May 30th, 2023), to go to Idiom Brewing (as well as Brewer’s Alley, and Monocacy Brewing Company) to recognize World MS Day.

To read about that trip click here: Our Trip to Frederick MD.

Ben was also busy in the convening days, with his Atlantic City trip with Drew, as well as the Renaissance Faire brewfest two days ago (June 10th, 2023).
