Welcome to the club! Read this while I was drinking Red Hook's Longhammer IPA.... delish!

But like the rest, I must know what you drank to induct you to the HHA (Hop-Heads Association)?

Oh, yeah. Pretty soon, you'll be wearing a hophead t-shirt, and start being known as an IPA snob.

Here I am, talking about IPAs, of course, with a famous brewer:



Trust me, once you become a hophead, there is no hope for you. Even my husband has starting appreciating highly hopped beers, and we're growing hops to help keep up with demand.

CONGRATS, might I recommend you try as many IPA's as possible, get to know what you like, and try to brew it!

I'm drinking a longhammer too! You really can't beat it for the money.

You hopheads have to try the ipa's that lagunitas makes, they are really outstanding.

Grats on the new discovery! One of my favorite past times is going my local beer snob haven and mixing a six pack of different IPAs. I just recently discovered Victory's Hop Wallop IPA - it's fantastic!
