There were two names for this particular brew, one for my Aussie Twitter friends and another with maybe a little more serious tone...a name that means something to me. So sorry to the Twitter friends (you know who you are), Crocoduck didn't make the final cut. Instead, this IPA is named Hold Your Fire.
Hold your fire
Keep it burning bright
Hold the flame
'til the dream ignites
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission
Spirits fly on dangerous missions
Imaginations on fire
Focused high on soaring ambitions
Consumed in a single desire
Yes, another hat's off to Rush, with their 1987 album Hold Your Fire, and my favorite song on it, Mission.
