Great Divide 18th anniversary double IPA
Cigar City Jai alai
Southern Tier 2X Stout.
Sixpoint Bengali Tiger
Two Brothers Cane & Ebel
I'm the only hophead among my family/friends- so I keep the IPAs on hand to a minimum. I generally order IPAs on tap though
Central City Red Racer IPA (Red Betty)
I use a really similar one, but covered the glass with sides of my favorite 4 and 6-packs to light-proof the glass for cellaring. Classy sh** right here though- gonna need a double-wide before long.
Hoptimum, Hop Rod Rye, Founders Double Trouble, Arcadia's Hopmouth, and.......something else which I can't think of. Too lazy to get up.
FW Union Jack
FW Double Jack
White Birch Hooksett
FRESH Flower Power
Founders Double Trouble
Jack's Abbey Hoponius
And a couple others.
But who cares about the others after those first 4?
Knee Deep Simcoe Triple IPA X 2
PTE x 3
Figueroa Mtn. Hoppy Poppy IPA
4 pack of Hoptimum
Great Divide 18th Oak Aged IIPA
But I'm about to roll through these like a wrecking ball while i watch the Laker Gamer.
Here's the answer on hops. The hops degrade over time. Drink an IPA with age and it takes on a sweet, caramel flavor most common to a barleywine. If you crave the bitter hop flavor, fresh grapefruit, resinous pine then drink it fresh. It's all chemistry now a days.
Just received a case of Heady Topper!!
EDIT: Oh also a case of Deviant Dales!
FW Double Jack
Flying Fish Hopfish on tap
homebrew all-Simcoe IPA
mammoth epic 395 is a delcious ipa

Ale Asylum Bedlam
Ale Asylum Ambergeddon
Central Waters Glacier Trail IPA
New Glarus Moon Man
New Glarus Black Top

and a whole bunch of stouts and scotch ales but that is for another thread I suppose
hmm for the hoppy stuff theres:
dales pale ale
(Four 12 oz. bottles)
(5 bombers bottled 4/23/12)
(4 bombers of the the Spring 2012 batch)
Great Divide 18th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA
PtE (4/30), and in a few hours: some Heady and a growler of HF's What is Enlightenment?.
The last of my Nugget Nectar
Orkney Skull Splitter
Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout
I have a bunch of Pils too- Troegs Sunshine Pils just came out, and it was worth the wait.
There's also some Bigfoot and Lagunitas Maximus in there.
The Kernel Brewery - India Pale Ale Citra
BrewDog - Hardcore IPA
The Kernel just moved into a larger facility, so hopefully it will start making it's way to the US with more frequency. It's been my best find here in London so far.
I am an IPA fan and my beer fridge (my side, not my wife's) always is stocked with IPAs
On the man half of the fridge:
5 - Sierra Nevada Torpedo - my all-time favorite and failsafe in my beer fridge
1 - Boulder Beer Co Mojo - getting more of this today, I love this brew
4 - Sweetwater IPA - my favorite for the lake, maybe it's just the label
2 - Redhook Longhammer IPA - left over from my original purchase -- not a bad beer but a sub-par IPA
I'm going to the Class Six on base today to purchase:
6 - Anchor Liberty Ale - one of my favs
6 - Sierra Nevada Torpedo
6 - Boulder Beer Co Mojo
6 - Good People IPA - local IPA, not the best but a good session beer since it's canned
For laughs, contrast that with my wife's side of the fridge:
8 - Bud Light with Lime
4 - Rolling Rock Light
3 - Miller High Life
2 - Michelob Light Lime Cactus
Cheers and hopes of a good weekend to all my fellow hop heads!
