Favorite IPA?

For probably the past year I've been on an IPA kick. Not sure why as I never really liked regular Pale Ales all that much; but something about the English or American India Pale Ale is just inviting.

I've been routinely switching around between Goose Island and Lagunitas, but have tried Mad Hatter, Magic Hat, Sweetwater (Atlanta-area brewery). Anyone tried any of the other growing varities of English or American IPAs? I noticed at least 5 new brands at Sam's/Binnie's yesterday...

The fun for me is touring the great brew pubs around Chg.

Flossmoor station is one with great food

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Sprecher Brewing does and IPA2 from time to time (IPA Squared )

If you like the sharp hops of an IPA, this one will get your attention.


Also like Sierra Nevada Pale.

Dogfish Head. 60 minute is good, 90 min is really good. If you're a big hops fan, the 120 is incredibly hoppy.

Lagunitas IPA is pretty tasty. They had them at Small Bar, and possibly Map Room...

Bell's two hearted ale is excellent(American IPA), and I also like Three Floyds Alpha King Ale and Great Lakes burning river (standard American pale ales)
