Have you ever wanted to just “Hop on a Plane”? This pilot is a hop head, and I painted him flying over Denali. Good thing he’s flying a Super Cub, because those planes are considered the best bush planes. Owners of these planes make upgrades called mods. Lots of mods means lots of STOL, or short take off and landing. A good plane is like a good IPA, you have to have lots of late additions of good stuff. This pilot is thinking about getting back to Talkeetna to grab a Twister Creek IPA, or even better, a Big Dipa DIPA — both good dry-hopped brews from Denali Brewing Co. The more hops for this hop head the better. Maybe after this remarkable flight he will be on his way to F Street Station, a pilot themed bar in Anchorage. F Street is a great place to grab a Morning Wood IPA from Kassik’s Brewery. I know plenty of pilots who love hoppy beer, and I love witty puns, so here is my most recent painting Hop on a Plane.
Cheers to the Alaskan in all of us! Get out and get hoppy!
