    Yeah. I've thought a lot about the different strains of "Belgian IPAs" as a style, and for me Houblon represents the best approach to it (i.e., a lighter-bodied BSPA that's hopped to hell).

    I know it's early in 2013 but after going to 3 wakes in the past 9 days, this may very well be the quote of the year!

    Finishing up my last Gumballhead tonight. I would be sad but I am watching reruns of Chappelle's Show so all is well.

    Couldnt agree more. Most of them just taste like poorly done versions of the individual styles, but I feel that Houblon does an amazing job of blending the two to pull out of the best boy styles.

    Ok...likes keep showing up, so I better report. Is yummy an official word we can use? Light, crisp, refreshing, and delicious. They can run a 45 mile tap line from Framingham straight to my living room.
