According to UPS, the second package has made it as far as the last one.

Let's hope it goes a little further.

The Whitbread IPA is based very closely on a historic recipe posted on Ron Pattinson's blog. I believe he posted this recipe in response to some discussion about Session IPA's. Apparently the Brits have been doing it going way back, and it was no big deal for them. Many breweries brewed their beers at several strengths, and IPA was no different. Frankly, I think I like their take on it better than the modern American one.

Here's the recipe as I brewed it. The recipe called for a target FG of 1.012, but I think I might have some hotter malt than they had in 1957 so the 147F mash temp is probably overkill. Next time I brew this I will probably shoot for mid-150's for 60 minutes.

At least we know there's not some guy in McCook looking for your packages and taking them home to drink them.

I'm on a no-drinking kick for the time being (we'll see how long that lasts) but I'm looking forward to trying your beers.

They do that because they can't leave you a note that says "not so f'ing heavy next time" ;)

There were two boxes when I got home. I moved the heavier and larger one and there was Jim's box on its side. It demanded to be photographed.

I've had heavier larger boxes delivered and this is the first time they've left something on the stairs. New driver or just because it was two boxes I'm sure.

Anyway, here's the loot unpacked. Jim has done me a solid. I need to clear room in the fridge.

I am enjoying another of Morticai's beers.  This one is marked "2 year and 1 year mixed ferment aged in oak".
It poured with little to no head, has a medium copper or dark gold color and is very clear.  Almost no legs or foam.
Aroma is honey and herbal, like an Indian spice, similar to coriander, but hard to pinpoint.
Oak is very apparent in the initial sip, then it kind of reminds me of the flavor of cream soda - not so much the sweetness as much as a honey/birch flavor.  It has a light sour finish, more lactic than acetic, not puckering, but leaving a little slickness in the finish.
More CO2 would definitely change this beer for the better - I think he transferred this from a keg and may have lost some carbonation in the process.
As I said, I am enjoying this beer and I think it would be fantastic with more CO2.
