Default Trying some new IPA's. What do I have here?

Got a variety pack last night. Decided to try some new IPA's and Golden Monkey (tripel). I don't know anything about them. Anything good here?

I really like Long Hammer but the last two time I've had it has given me a hangover. But I am sure it is directly related to the fact that i like it to much.

The only one I reckognize is long hammer which is pretty good. I just had a "lucky u ipa" for the first time tonight and was quite impressed. Well balanced for an ipa with good malt character.

I had the Brooklyn the other day out of a variety pack. It was pretty tasty and smooth. I've also had the victory and thought it was only ok.

I think Brooklyn is more of a pale ale than IPA. Hercules is amaz-za-zing double IPA. Lots of hops and alcohol in that bad boy.

I agree with you on the Brooklyn, I'm drinking it now. Very light for an IPA although it has a hoppy aroma. Not bad though so the first one is good

Tried the Long hammer last night and it was good. Drinking the Smuttynose right now. It's quite the bitter bomb. After pouring I noticed that it was past the 'best by' date so its probably missing some hop flavors. So far the Long hammer is my favorite.

I'm pretty sure dogfish head 90 minute is my favorite. Belles hopslam is also awesome.

I think I still have 1 Smuttynose IPA left. It's not bitter,just loaded with cascade & citra hops. Maybe even some lemon zest. Def has a lemon zest quality to the flavor,with grapefruit under that. No malt character,though. And there are more & dif IPA's around the world. It's the American ones that are all nuclear hop bombs. The one from Brooklyn Brewery is more like the original.
