Default My beer makes me dizzy (srsly)

This was an AG IPA listed here:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=36782

Lately when I get about 1/4 of the way through a glass I feel dizzy (not drunk).
Swmbo describes it as more lightheaded than dizzy. Any known causes for this? It os not something I have experienced before with any beer of any strength commercial or homebrew.

I was thinking perhaps some higher alcohols but i am not sure why it is more prevalent now and not earlier in the batch tasting.

Does it really only happen when you drink?

Have you had a cold recently?

I have dizzy spells for a few weeks sometimes after a cold. It takes a while for my ears/sinuses to clear out. It can be a PITA. Sometimes its so bad I can't walk or drive.

Are you both getting this directly from consuming a rather small amount of your beer?

...me thinks consulting a DR would be a good idea.

If it's got a lot of hops, that could be part of it... I guess /shrug
