I'm not bottling right now, just keggin' so I bought a few sixers of IPA to try on the golf course. Both were good. "Mad Hatter" and "Titan" IPA's. No I didn't drink 12 beers in one round of golf. LOL. Some were for the golf buddies who usually guzzle Miller Lite.

I also took a taste of the "long haul" IPA I'm conditioning in my keg. Such a nice brew. It's such a pleasure to brew beer as good or better as these IPA's that cost $11 a six pack.

Any good IPA's you've sampled recently? Probably doing a simcoe ipa next.

I recently had Founders Red Rye PA, Not quite an IPA, but it was a great hoppy flavorful beer. I really feel in love with it.

Fuggles IPA from Shipyard Brewing. So good I am going to make a clone of it. A nice traditional English IPA with no C hop's which is such a a nice change of pace.

I tried Flying Dog's IPA a few weeks back. Good, but I thought it didn't have as much hops kick as I normally expect from an IPA

Their Double Dog IPA is really good.

I haven't had anything new tickle my fancy in a bit, sticking to my old standbys: Green Flash West Coast IPA, Racer 5 IPA, Pliny the Elder and Lagunitas Hop Stoopid.

New belgium's ranger ipa and sierra nevada's torpedo are excellent choices. For a change of pace, try a bear republic red rocket ale. Its a red, but hopped up. Worth a try

Not "lately" by correct definition but when I was in Vermont this summer I had some of Magic Hat's IPAs. Actually, I had a lot of all of them.

They had several available at the brewery and I think the one that struck my fancy quite a bit was Hi P.A.

I liked it so much I got a growler of it to take camping (and a growler of Hexx).
