Olde Hickory Death by Hops
This latest batch is especially good. Or maybe we finally some fresh stuff in Cleveland. Either way, I'm digging it tonight.
If it's a beer that we don't know about, we probably don't know the acronym for it...
Didn't make the connection as to what the 'TG' in the title meant, but I had 3 Toppling Goliath hoppy beers on Darkness Day Eve and thought they were all fantastic. Hopefully the bottling line will mean I can have their great beers more than once a year.
Starting to get traction behind it simtra is pretty solid from knee deep
Got some of this in a BIF. At first I thought "two bottles of one beer in a BIF?" After drinking the first, I understood and appreciated the choice.
One that's not been mentioned (perhaps cause it's too well known?) is Boneyard RPM. Folks in the PNW know it, but I think most of the country has no clue what they're missing.
x2. Great beer, traded some Columbus IPA and White Rajah and got 2 as extras. Very, very solid.
Had a bottle of Simtra at my bachelor party thanks to Leschkie. HOLY SHIT. So good. Sat for about 5 minutes just smelling it, and it didn't disappoint when I actually took a drink.
I figure people from California know... Beachwood Melrose
This is the only Toppling Goliath I've had so far and it was excellent. I get bored of IPAs, but the smell and taste of this reminded me of why I loved them in the first place. They must start distributing to Illinois!
TIPA from Schlafly was pretty awesome.
This small brewery in San Jose called Russian River makes this IPA called Pliny the Elder. It's fantastic! Unfortunately it's only distributed to a few states
No really... Southern Star Pro-Am 2012, (512) IPA, Deep Ellum IPA, Karbach Rodeo Clown IIPA. Beloved locally, not known outside of Texas, really.
Steel toe size 7? Such a great beer from a rather small operation.
This x 1000
Yes!!! Went to Odd Side last summer and this beer blew me away! Phenomenal stuff! I'll also echo support for Fort George Vortex and Boneyard RPM - both are fantastic. And I don't believe I saw any mention of Fremont Interurban, so...there it is.
This brewery makes some great beers and they don't typically get a whole lot of recognition on here. If you ever trade from floridians see if they can get some of this!
Snake Handler Double IPA
Maumee Bay IPA and Amarillo Brillo from Maumee Bay Brewing in Toledo.
This. As well as Kane's Double dry hopped galaxy head high. Both are amazing beers.
Steel Toe Size 7
Odd Side Citra
The people that posted these answers are the winners.
The best IPA no one knows about.
If I told you, I'd have to kill you.
But Ron, the Scots are known not to use many hops
Lift Bridge Hop Dish and i always mention Steel Toe
Old Forge in Danville Pa. Thier overbite IPA is fantastic. Think Furious or Sculpin or Flower power.
In terms of American takes on the more traditional English IPA, I actually love Shipyard's (Fuggles) IPA...single variety, hefty bitterness, nice malt backbone, and at just the right ABV.
It's known fairly well here in its local area but I don't think its local area of familiarity extends too far out of state.... Wormtown Be Hoppy.
I'm not sure what qualifies for this thread but Evolution Lot 3 is a great IPA that is little known about.
came to post this. it's getting pretty popular in NJ but this is probably top 10 for me right now.
This^ hands down.
Selins Grove Brew Pubs IPA. Their APA is awesome too!!
I wouldn't say no one knows about them, it's get some love on here, but it definitely doesn't get mentioned nearly enough in my opinion.
Meadowlark from Pretty Things
I really like Snake River's: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/179/58577
yep... dont forget endeavor
Flat 12 Walkabout
It is listed as a Pale Ale, but I and many others don't think it fits.
Societe's The Pupil
Caldera IPA, Drakes IPA and Big Sky IPA.
