I'm currently terribly intrigued with Saisons, Aged Barleywines, and Hoppy American Pale Ales. However, I often relish an American IPA, Double IPA, Stout aged in wood and Robust Porters.
I've been waning off a rather long-standing IPA obsession.
Trying new beer among friends, new or old, is the "raison d'etre."
Lots of trading.
