@ brewerbear... I like all kinds of beers. The thrill of trying new things is great. Strong beers are a personal favorite though. @ atonk..... Lets just say the first batch will be at its peak or just past it when I get home.
Something that would probably lend itself well to hanging around for a bit while you are over there. Maybe a DIPA or a nice STOUT. Hope you are doing good over there bro. Just got back from RC South not too long ago and was in Mosul in Iraq during the surge. 2-16 Infantry Rangers, 1st INFANTRY DIVISION. (ranger class 0309). Whether or not you are a combat MOS or not best of luck to you bro and be safe.
