I took the exit years ago. There are way too many great styles out there to get stuck on megahopping.

I honestly think it was PBR that got me interested in the odd flavor it had that other beers didn't.

As for a truly hoppy IPA I'm not sure which was my first, it seems so long ago now.

While it might be pedestrian to most other IPA's out now, DFH 60 minute took me by complete surprise several years ago after enjoying the occasional beer in general. I tried it against the 90 minute, and liked the less malty sweet 60 even still.

One trip to world market where a single bottle of Green Flash WCIPA and others were bought..... I was done.

I don't consider my self a hop head, but I can enjoy hoppy beers...

My gateway was a tour of Sam Addams brewery... They gave us hop cones to smell and rub between our hands.. The connection between that and the flavors/aromas drew me in...

Two months after the tour I brewed my first beer
