ssssmashing: McEwan's scotch ale FTW!

Ima4nic8or: Its always the right time to drink any kind of beer.
Alphakronik: Y'all are pussies. Too much hops in your beer? Go drink a Coors Light, and leave the rest to us Hop Heads.Seriously, give me the hoppiest shiat you have available. Oh, it's made with Supercritical Fluid Extracted Hop Oil? Yes please. You put in 3 lbs per barrel? Yep, I'll take that too. Double Arrogant Bastard reduction sauce on ice cream? I'd eat that shiat right up.If I ever see a "man" tell a bartender that the beer he is served is "too hoppy", I'm going to slap that motherfarker.

Vangor: Picked up a bottle last night. Have not opened yet, will try out tonight. Probably get another and another Old Guardian on Sunday.
bv2112: Next week I am going to Cologne, then Munich, then Pilsen. I think they might stab me if I order an IPA. So I respectfully disagree with the author's thesis statement.
matthew_tray: My favorite beer style is Oktoberfest, so I'm getting a kick...IPAs don't agree w/ my stomach so I typically don't drink 'em. I can have ONE & that's about it. I had Sam Oktoberfest & a Brooklyn Oktoberfest last night & I must say that the Brooklyn had a nutty quality that I didn't like. So far I'm really a fan of Sam & Pyramids version.
WinoRhino: The Irresponsible Captain: Always been my go to:[beerbrewhaha.files.wordpress.com image 180x179]But, I do not discriminate; and look forward to my Nectar every year. (On tap!)[www.beerblotter.com image 336x448]I love me some Troegs. The bar down the street from me ALWAYS has multiple Troegs on tap. Hopback Amber is, in my opinion, one of the BEST balanced beers out there. And the nectar is spectacular... has a great malt backbone and some good fruit hop flavors. Great stuff.
Yotto: e lo: Damnit.Now all I want is a DFH 90 Minute, or a fresh IPA from one of my local brewpubs, but I'm on call all weekend and don't get to have any.Thanks a lot, Fark.Dogfish Head's 90-Minute IPA is my single favorite beer, and I've done a pretty extensive survey ;-)I'm going to be in the DC area next week, so am looking forward to trying it on tap.
wholedamnshow: buwolverine: Bell's Two Hearted Ale is a well balanced IPA, nothing too extreme.If you want extreme try Three Floyd's Alpha King, I'm surprised you don't see the hops floating around in that stuff.One the other hand, if you try Three Floyd's Dreadnaught (their DIPA), you get an amazingly well-balanced beer.
SoxSweepAgain: Like Pinot Grigio, I know it's the "thing" to like right now, but I've never tasted an exceptional Pinot Grigio either.
MarkEC: ssssmashing: McEwan's scotch ale FTW!If you'd like to try an American Scotch Ale, Old Chub from Oskar Blues represents very well, and is pretty cheap for an 8%ABV beer.
foxyshadis: SoxSweepAgain: Like Pinot Grigio, I know it's the "thing" to like right now, but I've never tasted an exceptional Pinot Grigio either.Huh, I thought the in things now were cheap Malbec from Argentina and Shiraz from Australia, along with Pinot Noir. That's what I usually see taking up the most real estate in stores, anyway, and what I've heard is getting planted like crazy. Of course, any of those can actually be very good, but a lot of them just seem like a snazzy label on mediocre, very young product.
Whale Biologist: [imageshack.us image 200x267] Brewed in Manitoba. Outstanding stuff.
Cerebral Knievel: of course.. there is something to be said about fanciful names and garish decorations. makes the product more memorable to the end consumer.
The_Sponge: Paintbox: Here in alabama we aren't privileged enough to partake of this nectar.Speaking of Alabama, here is State Rep. Alvin Holmes (D-umbass):Link
foxyshadis: Cerebral Knievel: of course.. there is something to be said about fanciful names and garish decorations. makes the product more memorable to the end consumer.I think it's more a matter of following public taste, we've come to expect fancier graphics from newer companies to stand out, whereas the more traditional or upscale ones want to keep the traditional brand image, but either way it really says nothing about the product since it's so cheap to do now. All a matter of what and who you're trying to sell. It's too bad the obvious money and talent put into some labels just never makes it into the bottle.Your branding probably says "This is a serious beer for serious beer drinkers" which is awesome.
NewportBarGuy: All. Year. Long....[i48.tinypic.com image 200x367]
Whack-a-Mole: Lagunitas has been mentioned up thread, if one has a chance to try "a little sumpin WILD" you may not be dissapointed. It's strong 8.8 iirc so there's that but it doesn't taste near as strong as it is. I've seen it only on tap but haven't even looked in beer stores.
Skid Roe v. Wade Boggs: I'm over IPAs...give me this any day.[untappd.s3.amazonaws.com image 320x320]
Gawdzila: IPAs are by far my least favorite kind of beer, I've never found one I can stand for more than a few sips. I just can't enjoy the herbally medicinal bitterness all those hops bring. Bitterness is supposed to taste BAD, to keep you away from poisonous substances. How people develop an affinity for stuff like that I'll never understand.Skid Roe v. Wade Boggs: I'm over IPAs...give me this any day.[untappd.s3.amazonaws.com image 320x320]Recently tried the Weihenstephaner Weizenbock, "Vitus", on tap at a German restaurant.I'm not even a super beer lover in general, but holy crap, that stuff is absolutely delicious. Single best beer I've ever tried./$3 for a pint bottle at BevMo. Yes please!
Popcorn Johnny: If you're a fan of pumpkin brews, You have got to try pumking. Had it for the first time last night and OMG, it's absolutely delicious.[encrypted-tbn1.google.com image 251x201]
Cerebral Knievel: and if your travels in the DC region allow you to come down to Richmond, come on by the brewery, ask for PJ, and tell them that you are from Fark, and I'll show you around the brewery.
