    Otter Creek Copper Ale. Its not as complex as Laguintas Censored for example which is another "copper ale" but I like that about it because it makes it a good session beer.

    At least 150 people have. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/2097/36988

    Couldn't help being snarky, but I get what you're saying and personally have been dying to try it since I first heard about it.

    Both very solid beers from breweries many people dismiss without much thought.

    Mongo DIPA buyPort Brewing. Yeah, it has great ratings, but I never see it brought up in IPA talk.

    Well you beat me. My answer is Sierra Nevada Summerfest.

    Also, Mayflower Porter is absolutely awesome, gets some mention, but not much. Long Trail Imperial Porter is also great, but gets no love.

    Everybody keeps comparing it to Flower Power, and it makes me want to smash my head.

    YES! I just opened a 2011 bottle last week, it mellowed out quite a bit with the liquorice almost faded completely. I would say that it seemed overall to be a more balanced beer but a little less exciting. Grab a fresh bottle and do a vertical.

    Labyrinth is possibly the best year round shelf stout available...highly underrated in my opinion.

    OP - Siberian Night. Great RIS (Barrel aging actually hurts it a bit--doesnt have the body).
    Dortmunder and Eliot Ness from Great Lakes. Both are inching toward the Beers of Fame list, and both are lagers. Imagine when a yellow and Vienna Lager make the Beers of Fame list. I think the hype mongers' heads will explode.

    I have, and think its easily the best rice beer (small category), and Id but it up there as one of the better DIPAs Ive ever had.

    Old Rasputin and Hop Rod Rye- while rated great- don't make a lot of buzz these days. Great f'in beers.

    Southampton IRS was unimpressive. This one struck me as an all-hype beer.

    Another vote for DRIPA.... and in a similar vein RISGOOP.
    Absolutely love both of them.
    Need to start hunting for other rice IPAs.

    Full Sail Amber. I know amber's don't really move the needle on this forum but it has a nice, complex, fruity flavor and a sharp little hop snap at the end. It's also very inexpensive and easy to find so it would be a good beer to throw in a large cooler with some Sammy's when you're having a barbeque.
