I have done the Chinook twice and really like it. It is citrisy and very easy to drink. Have not done the two hearted clone but have heard nothing but great things about it. Probably can't go wrong with either one.

Got their Black IPA kegged up right now and love it! Great hop profile. Almost reminds me of a real light bodied Imperial Stout if that makes any sense. next up Sinistral Warrior, I've read that it isn't hoppy enough for most ppl so I might tweak it a bit.

I did the Chinook and I have dead ringer in the secondary now. If you love hops the Chinook is VERY hoppy. it was a little bit too much for me, but I'm not a huge hop fan.

sinistral warrior ... i've brewed it twice...i love it, my friends love it, and my father-in-law loves it. I'd say it's hoppy enough. I'm looking to do their black ipa for my next ipa.

Dead ringer is very good. It was my second IPA, third beer ever.
