Slight change of format tonight … a bit of a vlog. Don’t worry it’s not going to happen very often, at the moment I prefer photo’s, text and a bit of video when it’s required to capture something not involving me. It was quite nice however, to set up the iPhone 3GS on a tripod, hit record, talk, hit stop and send to YouTube direct from the phone without much fuss.
Anyway, onto the subject … Innis and Gunn IPA and The Perfect Pour. Well as you can see, I’m not sure it was anywhere near perfect. I did however follow their instructions and was slightly worried about the vigour or the pour, usually we are always taught to tilt the glass … at least I was when I worked behind the bar in Progress at the Warehouse in ’91 (although to be fair, most clubbers wanted a can of Red Stripe).
This post follows on from a couple of recent others … Innis and Gunn Gift Box and Rum Cask and I’m quite impressed with this IPA, it certainly has its own unique character and if it was available on it’s own, I would stock up on it.
I don’t confess to know loads about beer (yet), I’ll just tell you what I think and may get the terminology or history wrong, however, please feel free to correct me in any comments below. I won’t actually type what I thought about the IPA, you will have to watch the video for that. One day, Google will translate the audio into text for us so that it is searchable, but until then, just watch it.
How this was made:
Video recorded and uploaded raw to YouTube using PixelPipe, YouTube URL grabbed and inserted into an email with an iPhone photo already attached and all sent to Posterous using nothing but the Phone.
Here is a video created by BEERreviews.co.uk and the inspiration for my Perfect Pour …
