Raw, adjective: 10. not diluted, as alcoholic spirits: raw whiskey
I have such a love-hate relationship with the Times Thursday Styles section.
You can stumble on the shallowest of the shallow, most days, all talk of handbags and Botox and laser treatments and other bullshit. And then, other weeks, you get delish stuff like this, under the label "Beers of the Times:"
"A Taste For Brews That Go To Extremes"
Incidentally, the winner of their little extreme beer taste test? 90 Minute Imperial I.P.A., from Dogfish Head itself (based in Milton, DE), which I just drank a mad pint of when I was out with Mrs. D in Rehoboth a week ago. Good brewery. Love that the Times picked up on it.
