Runway IPA from Dale Brothers Brewery (Upland, CA) where I'm presently typing from. I say that even though IPAs aren't my favorite brew. Most are so raw that I really can't take them, but this IPA is smooth and very tasty. My favorite, alas, is dark brews, and the California Black Beer is a solid dark ale, and the Pomona Queen (aged) is a great lager. Just stopped by to do a bit of work online, do some browsing on FreeRepublic, and enjoy a big of brew.

Website: http://www.dalebrosbrewery.com

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.

Southern Tier Brewing out of Lakewood, New York makes a nice IPA. I highly recommend it if it is available.

"I drink a lot of beer....but what IPA?"

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!

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.

Founders Brewing Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan. I've been to 82 breweries in Michigan (not counting a few that have closed), and Founders is my favorite. Michigan has about 120 breweries right now, with several more opening this spring/fall.

Your timing, to me, is uncanny! Just last night, I had THE BEST IPA that I’ve ever had and I can’t remember the name...why? Because it was 9% alcohol. The logo on the tap was green in color. Anyway, I was on a TV shoot in a small Colorado town, and walked (thank gawd) to my lodge. Other than that, I LOVE Avery IPA as my ‘go to’.

Just like eating and drinking at The Alchemist [Waterbury, VT] before the flood of Irene, after a long day of skiing I used to get a bite and howler refills from The Shed in Stowe. The restaurant is now closed, but luckily the recipe is still brewed in Middlebury by Otter Creek Brewery... and remains true to the original taste.

My favorite IPA? IsoPropyl Alcohol.

(Not much of a beer drinker. But IPA is useful for all sorts of things. Not including getting drunk.)

welcome... but as far as IPA's go, i'm partial my local IPA from Rooster Fish Brewing Co, Watkins Glen NY

Raven
Black IPA

Raven Black IPA

Nothing traditional here! An IPA brewed with Black Patent Malt. Dry hopped. Very complex flavors.

If you enjoy the West Coast style IPAs you can’t go wrong with Laugnitas.

I believe that central New York State, from Watkins Glen to Cooperstown, is one of the most beautiful, and underrated parts of the country.
