    I generally gravitate to beers with bold flavors but I can still enjoy the lighter stuff. I think the main thing is not to switch from some massive DIPA to a low flavored beer in the same session.

    Could you recommend some lagers for hopheads?

    Double Crooked Tree........Damn if this isn't one of the biggest,baddest,most beautiful DIPA's.So infrequently mentioned here, and yet it puts beers like Hypeslam and Aunt Jemima's 120min to shame! Of course,that's just like ,my opinion man!

    I'm not sure what you will have access to but since you specifically mentioned hops, here are a few that I know of: Sam Adams Double Agent IPL, Victory Prima Pils, Sixpoint The Crisp. And I haven't had the one PatriotsRule mentioned yet but I hear good things about it:
