The IPA that turned me from belgians. IPA's used to give me headaches, and I felt they were too intense. Then a close friend caught me at just the right time, and I savored all its glory. I was quite medicated at the time, but I remember an amazing golden pint with a handsome amount of head. A smell of grapefruit and other citrus seemed to visibly emerge from the glass. Then, POW it proceeded to coat my tongue with a heavy mouthfeel I have never experienced before ( this was before I got into crafts ) and I thought, "This is it. This is changing the way I look at beers. No longer will I avoid IPA's, but I will embrace them." Availability is good, price is good.. for an amazing brew.
That said, my top IPA's have moved on to 120min, Alchemy Hour, Hopslam and of course Hoptimum. I haven't had much else since I'm new to the game, please feel free to send me recommendations!
