Now that I have had a few now, recent hop addict here

Pliny
Hop Ottin
Blind Pig
Lagunitas is good for a low gravity IPA too

I wish I could get Grants but not anymore, I find it is strange how it is mentioned as one of the defining beers for the category in "designing great beers" and specifically mentions that it is below what the gravity should be.

so I had to opportunity to have a DFH 120 last night. I friend from back east came into to town to visit and brought two bottles of it. we had them last night and........ disgusting. I've never experienced "cloyingly sweet" until last night. I sipped on it for well over an hour and tried, really honestly tried, to like it or at the very least appreciate it. but I just couldn't; it was a chore to just finish my glass.

Wow, no love for Titan IPA. That's my go-to. But I love a Two-hearted when I can get a hold of it

+1 or should I say -1 to the DFH 120. I love the 60, love the 90 but whats goin on with the 120? Definately not the hoppiness I was expecting and yes, way too sweet. I have never had a DFH brew that I didnt LOVE until this.
