    This is a question mainly out of ignorance but why are so many of the top-notch seasonal IPA/APA's released in the January/February timeframe? Not a complaint, but Hopslam, Sucks, Palate Wrecker, 75-Minute, Younger, even Nugget Nectar? It it in conjunction with a certain "hop season", a prelude to spring, market competitiveness, pure coincidence?
