I'm getting to the point where picking my top 5 IPA's is pretty much impossible though. There are so many good ones out there now.
How did that bottle of 2006 Isole e Olena Cepparello work out the other night Kelly? I researched that one and it sounded pretty good for something you don't have to get a HELOC to be able to splurge on.
It's particularly difficult now that DIPAs (Double IPAs, which Lagunitas Sucks is) are so broadly available.....between IPAs and Barley Wine on the ladder. Some of these types of beers need more balance IMO.....I can go out to my backyard in the summer and eat a handful of fresh hops off of my vine if I want that effect.Fortunately, Sucks has a better degree of hop-malt balance than many DIPAs. --K
Ethiopia-Gera from the La Colombe Workshop: http://shop.lacolombe.com/collections/workshop/products/ethiopia-geraI have always been fond of Ethiopian coffees, and this one didn't disappoint either. This time, I did a search for La Colombe discount coupons and found a code that knocked 10% off of the the toal price of the coffees I purchased.Peter
I agree with you to a certain extent, however...To me, it's not an IPA if it's balanced. An IPA should lean to the hop side of the malt/hop scale. That being said, making a great IIPA is more complicated than just uber hopping it though.Personally, I like many of the "West Coast" style IPA's that are usually aggressively hopped with American hops and definitely less malty.
Spinach, carrot, parsley, strawberry, blueberry, flax seed, pumpkin seed, and almond smoothie. It tastes pretty darn good. I'm not sure if that means I'm starting to get used to it or my taste buds are disintegrating...
