    Hey, Alesmith IPA fan, I have a question. I love, or perhaps I should say loved, Alesmith's IPA, but the last three bottles I've gotten seemed way different. It didn't have that wonderful chewy resinous texture or that grapefruit and pine flavor that once made it my favorite IPA. Have you noticed any changes? Have you heard of any changes to the brew? I'd love to hear that I just got a few bad bottles or that there was a temporary glitch and Alesmith IPA is back to its former glory.
     
  6. Moylan's has some great IPA's. Just had Hopsickle last night and it was delish.

    The best IPA is the one I've had that nobody else knows about. That's how it works in craft beer these days.
