    Just counted over 20 people this AM that tweeted about #IPADay without using #IPADay ... LOL. :rolling_eyes:

    OK- You all talked me into it. I'll be grabbing a Hop Stoopid on the way home, and I wasn't planning on doing it at all, previously to reading this thread (yeah...that's the ticket...). The things I do for the beer community!

    I have a few ZD's lying around, and have some Furious inbound from france44, hope they show up today. Cases of Sculpin are lying at Bestway, my impression is that internist has slacked off to a great degree. I know I pass them up.

    I know I'll be cracking open a can of Heady Topper later today ... damn, this means I actually have to go through my beer fridge to sort out beer. :wink:

    Might as well go big and try the devil dancer I found yesterday. #tripleIPAday. And follow it with some heady topper, after work of course.

    Ha - indeed. I don't understand why IPA was chosen. Even non-craft drinkers know what an IPA is. It would be much more interesting to do Russian Imperial Stout day or something else that would open some eyes to a new style.

    I'll probably go out and hit a bar today, but here are some reasons to stay in.

    Heading to the store over lunch to grab some Furious, Myrcenary, maybe Lake Erie Monster and a bomber of Hop Henge. Though, Ruination is sounding good...

    Chicken sausages on the grill with a Duvel tulip of Furious in hand this evening is sounding mighty fine.

    I grabbed a reg Ruination and a 10th for a side by side comparison. I'm up at the lake on family vacation and my fellow hop head coz is here, should be a fun little mini tasting.

    Celebrating IPA Day in style! You'd be surprised how easy it was to acquire these in Georgia. Not a lot of "craft beer people" here.

    Just walked into a brewery and they are out of IPAs today...told the guy it's IPADay, and he just stared at me like I was an idiot. My response, "Nevermind, just get me whatever."

    I've got a bottle of Le Freak that's not too old, an old-ish bottle of Foothills Hoppyum, an old-ish can of Gandhi-Bot (well, maybe 6-7 weeks, not bad), a bottle of Hopus I'm not sure the date of, and just picked up a sixer of Perpetual IPA today so I'd have something fresher. Looking forward to one or two of these tonight!

    Homebrewed Galaxy IPA on tap and then probably moving on to some Gandhi-Bot. Next Thrusday will be my IPA Day when I pick up some cases of Heady Topper at the Alchemist while heading to Burlington!!! Goes on sale at 11am on Monday and Thursdays... I don't think I will find anything better than a Heady Topper under 24 hours old! Cannot wait to pop my Heady Topper Cherry!!!

    Only IPAs I have in the fridge are an 8 Wired Hopwired and a couple Phillips Krypton RyePA. My drain didn't even like the taste of Krypton last time I opened one, so I guess it's Hopwired for me tonight!

    I had my first Stone beer today, their IPA. Definitely a solid beer.
