Delirium Tremens is nothing like an IPA but I promise you you'll thoroughly enjoy it.

You hopheads have to try the ipa's that lagunitas makes, they are really outstanding.
They are not bad, Maximus and Hop Stopid are both amazing. If you get Ninkasi try their double hopped IPA, not gonna lie, its amazing. Hit up Ninkasi's Red, their IPA, their Double IPA, they are all amazing. So I live in oregon, their brewery is a whopping 40 mins away from me. If you dont get their beer in your area I may be able to help you out, just PM me. Their BIC has filled a few cornies for me before, its a great company and even better beer!!!!!

Welcome to the wonderful world of IPA's. I remember when my buddy discovered Racer 5... well, I kind of remember. Apparently he loved it, because the pitchers kept on coming!

I love a good IPA. Lagunitas is very good if you're drinking more than one. DFH 90 min is very nearly the epitome of the IPA art.

I think in the last year or so, though, I'm about burned out on the "hop bombs." Like anything else in these United States, what we do we have the tendency to overdo. Me, I'm still seeking that perfect balance in an IPA. There are some that aren't billed as IPAs that are wonderfully balanced pale ales, and come close to what I could drink daily, like Three Floyds' Alpha King.

I just tried stone IPA for the first time yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Last time I was in portland, OR I made a point of visiting descheutes (sp?) Brewery. Everything they make is fantastic, but they had something very very hoppy on their X tap that was amazing. Also had mirror pond from a hand pump, which tasted freaking great too.
