Skip to comments.Your Favorite IPA? Va Va Vanity...
Posted on 04/06/2013 4:28:33 PM PDT by Third Person
So beer drinkers, it's Saturday... as I sip [gulp] on my Stone Brewing IPA, I'm wondering if y'all have any recommendations on your favorite IPA's.
Weigh in now, while you can still type!
Two Hearted Ale, Bell’s Kalamazoo, MI
Sierra Nevada Torpedo
Ninkasi Total Domination (when I don’t mind paying extra)
Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA
Southern Tier Unearthly
I drink a lot of beer....but what IPA?
I shamefully wait for a reply....
I have to admit the new trend towards microbreweries opening their doors to the public to share and enjoy their brews is a great change. While they're (typically) limited to JUST selling their brews (no food, no other products, just what is made on premises), most invite local vendors to come in and set up food service on certain days of the week.
My wife and I have become fans, and visit a few breweries a month, though Dale Brothers is our ‘favorite’ so far. Plus, a couple pints for $4 a piece, and a half gallon for $10, it can be rather economical when you're talking specialty brewing.
And my wife is enjoying at the moment the very last of the mango IPA mixed with their great porter, else I'd recommend that.
I resemble that inclination!
The good stuff... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India_Pale_Ale
Southern Tier Brewing out of Lakewood, New York makes a nice IPA. I highly recommend it if it is available.
Definition: A hoppier version of pale ale. Originally brewed in England with extra hops to survive the journey to British troops stationed in India. (Hops is a natural preservative, and by the way, is loaded with anti-oxidants as well)
Very bitter beer...it's an acquired taste, and WE CRAFT BREW LOVERS GUZZLE IT!
Dogfish and Victory both make some great ones...not sure I can choose a favorite between them.
A “big” or bit of brew? :^)
Sounds like a great time... Enjoy!
I drink no beer.
But IPA depends on what circles you move in. International Poverty Association, International Phonetic Association, International Psychoanalytic Association, among others, or in my daily world Independent Project Analysis.
At least the IPA these folks are discussing sounds a lot more interesting.
I’ve never had an IPA that I didn’t like. Stone is great, as is Racer 5.
