    I don't think a lot of people understand this thread but then again that's never stopped anyone from posting whatever the fuck they want.

    I like Marshall Zhukov (4.37) way more than Hunaphu (4.57). MZ does not get enough love here.
    Locally I like Sun King Osiris more than all their award winning beers including Grapefruit Jungle
    I like Schlafly A-IPA more than T-IPA
    I like Westbrook IPA more than Mexican Cake

    I understand where you are coming from and agree, but that was not one of the rules.

    Maine Another One > all their other stuff

    After having Grunion yesterday by Ballast Point, I might have to say it's better than Sculpin. Maybe...just slightly. Further tests are needed.

    Tocobaga might be just as good or better than Jai Alai

    Indian Brown Ale > all other DFH beers

    Autumnal Mole Stout > Modus Hoperandi

    All I can think of at the moment.

    Those beer are on the same level for me. Both great in my book.

    I was under the impression these were both hyped.

    don't like that you're confusing hype with popularity.

    do agree with you about backwoods bastard being better than KBS.

    Just off the top of my head, I'd say:

    FBS over KBS
    Stone IPA over Ruination and Ruin 10
    FW Union Jack over Double Jack
    DFH 90 over 120
    DFH 60 over 120

    But i would agree with Stone IPA>Ruination and Ruin 10
    Ruin is just too much for me, but would still say Enjoy By is the best from Stone.
    Also like Sucks>Lagunitas IPA and Lagunitas Maximus

    • Consecration > Supplicaton
    • FBS > KBS
    • Lil Sumpin Sumpin > Sucks
    I will add a few more
    • Headhunter > Hop JuJu
    • Edmund Fitz > anything else from GLB
    • Narwhal > BA Narwhal
