    I use a really similar one, but covered the glass with sides of my favorite 4 and 6-packs to light-proof the glass for cellaring. Classy sh** right here though- gonna need a double-wide before long.

    Here's the answer on hops. The hops degrade over time. Drink an IPA with age and it takes on a sweet, caramel flavor most common to a barleywine. If you crave the bitter hop flavor, fresh grapefruit, resinous pine then drink it fresh. It's all chemistry now a days.

    The Kernel Brewery - India Pale Ale Citra
    BrewDog - Hardcore IPA

    The Kernel just moved into a larger facility, so hopefully it will start making it's way to the US with more frequency. It's been my best find here in London so far.

    I am an IPA fan and my beer fridge (my side, not my wife's) always is stocked with IPAs
    On the man half of the fridge:
    5 - Sierra Nevada Torpedo - my all-time favorite and failsafe in my beer fridge
    1 - Boulder Beer Co Mojo - getting more of this today, I love this brew
    4 - Sweetwater IPA - my favorite for the lake, maybe it's just the label
    2 - Redhook Longhammer IPA - left over from my original purchase -- not a bad beer but a sub-par IPA

    I'm going to the Class Six on base today to purchase:
    6 - Anchor Liberty Ale - one of my favs
    6 - Sierra Nevada Torpedo
    6 - Boulder Beer Co Mojo
    6 - Good People IPA - local IPA, not the best but a good session beer since it's canned

    For laughs, contrast that with my wife's side of the fridge:
    8 - Bud Light with Lime
    4 - Rolling Rock Light
    3 - Miller High Life
    2 - Michelob Light Lime Cactus

    Cheers and hopes of a good weekend to all my fellow hop heads!
