First of all, it's great to get the backup for the Longhammer love!

Secondly Mr. Nice Guy, Lagunitas IPA is fantastic. My LHBS carries tons of stuff you can't find anywhere else in the area and I often end up leaving with grain, hops and a delicious treat ^_^

So here's what you absolutely have to do next: find yourself some Bell's Two-Hearted ale, some Bell's Hopslam, some Founder's Double Trouble. Report back with your findings.

Wow. Sweetwater IPA is fantastic. Great grapefruit flavor. Super beer! I'm planning to try to find some on my way to Orlando next weekend!

This is a great time to find you like IPA's. I don't know if there has ever been a better selection available to sample at the commercial level.

Welcome welcome.

For some, life begins at 50....

50 IBU's
and it just gets better from there.

Sweetwater is a four cylinder IPA. Soon, you'll be downing SN Torpedoes like they're lemonade. Then, just wait until you get your hands on a Pliny or Ruination, your taste buds will never be the same.

Ruination may be the most aptly named beer in existence.
