There is something special about this beer.
Best gas station brew maybe but was it any good?
meh, will only buy it for a buck/can
I had some Sam Adams IPA a few years ago and it was meh but I don't think it was Rebel.
There is a Rebel family now. That you cannot recall which IPA it was says it all. Especially after this thread is named for one.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm hear to announce my new GOAT IPA. It was discovered here in Colorado when the wife ordered one for me. Even she says it is her GOAT:
dude - posted earlier that Odell IPA topped my fave list...similar tastes in brews too...lol.
I faintly remember that.
i'm loving this beer...
Goose Island 312 Urban PA, smooth, un-IPA like. Needs a Hop-Infusion
Currently drinking Ommegang 2015 Belgian Independence Day Ale, a hopped up tripel. Pretty decent, the hops dry out the beer somewhat.
Alaskan Hopothermia DIPA, wowow!!!
I do like
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA but think its overpriced compare to competition.
Below are two stouts I really enjoy
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout - Brooklyn Brewery
Lakewood The Temptress - Lakewood Brewing Company
Also recommend brews from the http://www.thebruery.com/
I'm currently Dogfished out. My goto these days is Hercules DIPA.
Must have toes of stone!
Has anyone watched BeerGeeks?
Im hanging loose now with a Kona Koko Brown. Its HI liquid aloha
had a couple of these recently... SO GOOD! A+
Quite enjoying a Wrought iron IPA by Abitha out of New Orleans as i watch Saturday football
An excellent beer.
Also Surly Furious.
The Kona beers, especially the seasonals are really good especially for the price considering not really a micro brew. Im always enjoying the Kona Koko and Pipeline Porter offerings.
For a real treat, I like the Epic Bourbon Barrel Big Bad Baptist. Nice kick with ABV approx 12%
I love this time of year...lots of seasonal fresh hop beers. Some highlights:
Which one was it?
Yes. I've been to their brewery in Brno Czech Republic and had a meal there.
It was pretty good: a typical Czech malty beer.
Brno is a lovely small city in Czech. One of its best attributes is that tourists have not discovered it yet. It is off the beaten path, unlike Prague!!
Check this out:
Nice start but would be much better to do it by major cities. For example, CA only includes a SF pub and LA, OC & SD have tons of outstanding bars/breweries. Atleast for TX, it mentions a few other great choices like Dallas, Houston since Austin pub was the pick.
I got your PM and I don't remember the answer to your question. Unfortunately, I've had a few gout attacks the last few years and after giving up beer awhile ago (it sucks), so far so good on keeping the attacks at bay. I do still indulge in an IPA every few months and it is pure heaven when I do.
We just recently started seeing Elysian here lately. I was pretty impressed with this one.
Also, I'm not as high on Lagunitas (esp their IPA's) as many, but this coffee stout was a treat.
Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad - 45%
Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee - 35%
Boulevard Imperial Stout X - Tart Cherry (whiskey barrel-aged) - 10%
Firestone Walker Velvet Merkin - 10%
Tasty and strong blend at 12.5 ABV !
