    No poll to determine what NE actually stands for?!? I hear it's acutally Nebraska IPA. I kid...

    Nice to see these all in one place. I have never participated in any of these and actually did not realize the level of polling that was being done. Well done Vikeman and everyone for putting these together. Whenever I see them posted over on Reddit Homebrewing (and often not the beeradvocate link!), I make sure to point people over here. Much more insight and commentary for poeple to learn from.
