Default Ipa

Let's talk about how delicious a good IPA is. The more hops the better... Can you just put hops into a bottle and serve it to me that way. MmMmMmmmmm!

Default My favorite

I have become a total hop head! The most popular beers I drink now are IPAs. My love for IPAs started some where around freshman and sophomore year of college. A buddy of mine who was 21 would go to the store at least once a week and pick up a big bottle, a six pack or 4 pack of some IPA and we would share it. During this time I tried Brooklyn EIPA, Stone Ruination IPA and IPA, Dogfish Head 60 and 90 minute IPAs, Long Trail IPA, and many more. I have gone back to my love of IPAs recently and have brewed a few of my own delicious I am currently on a quest to try all the IPA's that I can find if you got any to suggest I would love to hear them.

I am a huge fan of Hopslam (if you have access to Bell's products), Sierra Nevada Torpedo, Mad Hatter (New Holland Brewing) and my go-to beverage, Goose Island IPA.

I had Lancaster Hop Hog and Yards IPA. I prefer Lancaster over Yards because its smoother than Yards. Yards to me was very bitter and citrusy.

There are a ton of great IPAs out there right now, so these are just a few of my favorites.

The best IPA I have had in a while is Hop Henge (E)IPA from Deschutes. It is very good and easy to drink as far as IPAs go. I am about to try Hoptimum 2012 from Sierra Nevada which I have been looking forward too. Another one of my favorites is Unearthly from Southern Tier. (Sorry for all the Imperials here, haha).

Non-imperials: O'Fallon's 5 Day IPA and Goose Island's IPA are two of my favorites.

Texas has the TABC that keeps a handful of great beers out of the state. When I travel to CO later this year, I'll have to pick up a good amount of craft beer.

It's my favorite IPA, only downside is it's a winter seasonal so actually getting to have some is truly special.
