    Saison kick and Lagunitas kick, more of the later with the former sprinkled in

    It's funny, to me at least, as I prefer IPAs but when trading I seem to get more stouts. So I'll usually drink my IPAs which leaves my fridge full of stouts.

    I'm switching seasons myself and focusing on lighter, summertime type beers like IPA's and Saisons. I'll still throw back a good stout, but not my first choice with the weather warming up.

    Have a few of these aging right now. We'll see how they are at a later date...

    I think I overdid it with the IPAs a few weeks back, so now I'm enjoying Belgian ales.

    Good to know I'm not alone with my style sprees...I think there's another one coming on. I had an Alesmith ESB a couple weeks back and have since been really craving ESBs and amber ales.

    I'm apparently on a Bell's barleywine kick. My fridge is full of Saturn and 3rd coast old ale. Other than that I'm usually on an IPA kick

    I'm always on a German Pilsner kick, but a fine Dortmunder or Helles will do the trick as well. Can't seem to find a consistently fresh supply of any of them though, so inevitably I go on an IPA kick.

    I'm always on a Belgian kick, particularly BSDAs, but lately I find myself trying to exhaust the tripel universe, and drinking fewer IPAs/DIPAs.

    I'm more of an IPA guy. But lately, I've been big on stouts, both non-bba and bba.

    German Pilsners, and I've been working my way through all the shelf lambics to determine my favorite.

    It's the same all the time...stouts, porters and IPA's

    session ipa, Pinner, Easy Jack, Go To, All Day, great when you're outside grilling and want to knock back a few without feeling it

    Drinkable old school beers. Stuff that was all the rage in the 90's and early 2000's but fell out of favor. Blonde ale, malty red, IPA's with carmel malts, fruited blonde/wheat ales, etc.
    The places that are still around and brewing those styles tend to do a bang-up job.

    For a while I was going after any massive IIPA I could get my hands on but the last 12 months or so I have just been craving pale/IPA that's under 6.5%. Anything with clean fresh hops but not overpowering malt.

    The problem with this is that low ABV pales fade so fast. You really have to drink fresh and local. If a brewery doesn't bottle date or can stamp, I wont buy it. That way I know I can always get something under a month old.

    Tis the season for saison. I've been drinking a lot of saisons lately. I just bought the 2015 Saison-Brett by Boulevard, Prairie Standard, and Prairie Eliza5Beth. I really enjoy saisons during the warmer months, and they go really well with most food especially grilled food which I've also been doing a lot of.

    I've been on a huge DIPA kick, as well as a Clown Shoes Brand kick. I do believe they are underrated as a brand, and that leads me to my most potent and effective kick, which is the hobbled backwards roundhouse to the display signs if there is no Space Cakes or Galactica available for purchase...

    It got to the point last year where a I had to just give IPAs in general a long break and just within the past two weeks or so I've been able to get back to the point where I can get excited about drinking one. Even got the chance to try Pliny the other day and it was pretty damn solid :grinning:

    Aside from that I've been drinking a lit of Flanders Red and Tripels

    And of course with summer coming I'm about to be buying a whole lot of German beer (namely Hefeweizens and Munich Helles):sunglasses:

    Hop forward APA/IPA/DIPA's but specifically Indeed Day Tripper for about a year now. With the occasional Surly Abrasive/Furious in the mix.

    Was big in iPa's last year but now, I Seam to be on a quad kick, and stouts. Those intense loud flavors.

    I've recently gone stouts -> saisons -> weizens/bocks -> IPAs

    I'm hoping to get back into saisons now that the weather is warmer. Gimme that Brett!

    Since summer is coming up, saisons will be what I'm looking for.
