Hop Ottin' India Pale Ale!

Not too many places I see carry this beer but I give it a 10 (Anderson Valley Hop Ottin')! I'm also a pretty picky SOB but if you like the IPA's this one is one of the best out there in my opinion. I'm been drinking it out of my keg for over a year now. There is something about those IPA's that are just different than all other beers.

So if your anywhere with a good beer selection be sure to look for it and give er' a try. I'm pretty sure your local yard house has it in stock. Cheers!

I know Yard House has it. Suprise! :o

Ask around or look the for the Anderson Valley label. They have a few other beers out there so make sure you don't grab the wrong one. Little writing on the label"Hop Ottin".

The other IPA I like switch off on every now and then is Stone Brewery IPA. That's a pretty darn good one too...

But I'm with ya EN all the way with IPA's!

The British invented the brewing technique in India during their colonization. Those soldiers must have gotten bored from time to time :P

If I chuck a rock hard, I can hit the Stone Brewery here in Escondido.  I still haven't visited it.

I'm only one county over from ya (Orange County). I could make that trip with you ;D

It probably be worth going to see to check out the entire process from start to finish.

One of these days when I get burnout on UO/Gaming I might have to start experimenting with brewing myself see if I can't come up with some flavorful concoction. It looks like it'd be alot of fun but I imagine there's quite a bit to it.

Yea Nicar those Belgium Beers aren't half bad either  :)

It's only in the last 10 years or so the US is catching up and even surpassing the Europeans, Japanese, and Austrailians in beer brewing.

How about Elephant Beer? Anyone ever tried that? It's imported from my birthplace Denmark Copenhagen. Us Danes we know our beer ;)

These little micro brews that might have some decent brews still have trouble competing with the watered down imports that we get here. Now, imagine the imports at their own strength in their respective countries compared to the micro brews....  yup, no comparison really.

They have a pretty nice operation over there.  It still microbrew, but in a macro-format.  :)

Alexander Keith's from Halifax (Eastern Canada) is my old favorite... It's an IPA, strong taste and a bit of an aftertaste but not bad overall. I'm almost ashamed to admit it but Labatt Blue is also a nice one. Both of those beers are Canadian of course and both do not use preservatives which I find is a huge advantage the next morning if you have a few too many. It's been my experience that beers with preservatives generally make your head hurt more the next day. On a side note tho, it's best to get these beers fresh from their source, theres definitely a marked difference between fresh stuff sold locally where it's brewed versus the same stuff after its traveled 5500km across the country in a truck/train. This is likely due to the preservative aspect. Ah well, another reason to visit Halifax!! Most bars per capita in North America (used to be at least), party town with 3 universities and 3 colleges...

Good times!

I haven't seen that one. I'm always open to try an IPA. I'll look for it next time I hit the liquour store but I'm bot putting back the brews like I used to. School won't allow it. :'(

Deschutes Brewery has an amazing IPA! Inversion.  Don't let me catch you drinkin' it from the bottle. A four stage pour directly in the center of the glass(patience means better head) and let her breathe for a minute or two. Then Enjoy!! The taste and feel in your mouth changes from when you first drink it and then as it passes over your tongue, and then refeshingly slides down your throat.

In Whatcom County, WA we have Boundary Bay Brewery and there IPA is award winningly bitter and delicious.

And a little Tavern here called the Green Frog Cafe Acousrtic Tavern (with all kinds of acoustic instruments hanging on the wall for you to grab anytime the stage isn't being used, and take back to your seat, if you want!) carries 30 beers on tap. I just had the Industrial IPA from Diamond Knot Brewery (out of Mukilteo) and it blew my socks off!
