    Damn right you can't. Good thing about KDP coupons is they take up very little room in your pocket and have no expiry date. When I told my wife I was thinking of adding catering for the Pub and that I hope she didn't mind spending some more time in the kitchen, I swiftly cashed in 3 of the aforementioned coupons to mitigate the pain of the blow.

    has anyone had (don't know the availability of the beer nor people's access to it, it's from washington) roslyn brewery's dark lager? that's some good $hit.

    i'm personally not an IPA or wheat guy.

    Haven't had that one but if you did enjoy it, the Ayinger Dunkel is likely a beer you'd love if you haven't tried it already.

    Ya'll should make a trip out to California. Both northern and southern California (its basically two states) have some of the best rated beers on the planet.

    Bumping old thread because it's slow at work today.

    Think I've mentioned Founders on here, don't know for sure. But I'm lucky to live in an awesome state making awesome beer. KDB, you try any of the Michigan stuff? I'm partial to Founder's Dirty Bastard myself.

    Perfect thanks. I'll see if I can get Fiunders. I've had some of their stuff, not an IPA.

    Dirty Bastard was great when I had it a couple of months ago, All Day IPA wasn't quite as good imo, but certainly not a bad beer. Any other Founders beers you'd suggest? I can occasionally find them here in Illinois or when I visit Indiana and Michigan

    The Porter, it'll have a Victorian lady on the label. I'd also suggest the Kentucky Breakfast Stout from Founder's too.

    And yes, the Dirty Bastard is amazing.

    IPAs are lazy. You can hide brewing imperfections in over hopping. And after a certain IBU count the human tongue can't even distinguish the difference.

    Not that there aren't good ones. But the obsession with them that every craft brewer has to have their signature IPA or they aren't a real brewery is...misguided. (Not saying anyone here is actually saying that, but the general perception).

    Of course, this is coming from a guy that has a Guinness in his avatar. Which is more a reflection that the combination of beer, Legos, and Star Wars is hilarious than it is of my preference in beer (though I do love a good pint of it).

    Breweries are lazy, but good IPAs are amazing. I think the problem is that there as so many...and so many try to stand out simply by going hop crazy.

    IPAs are my favorite - when they're good, but I've been getting into porters a lot more. And I want to start trying the sours coming out.

    Suggested it on here earlier, but the Founders Porter. One of my favorites.

    My favourite beer trend of the last year or so has been the session ipa. I can't easily take a 7% beer in the middle of the day any more so having something with plenty of flavour but lighter booze has been excellent.

    I drink most varieties other than smoked beer or chilli beer. Neither do anything for more. Love the wild ales.

    If there is a style that beer nuts are more deeply into than an ipa it is the Imperial Stout. Absolutely staggering how full the lists of best beers are of this style. I like it too but just as happy with a wit or a bock.

    Oh and there are absolutely dire ipas out there (goose island being an obvious one) the reason so many of them are so good though is not the flavour masking but the cost. Hops are so expensive that breweries are at risk if their own one isn't great so it gets a little extra time and attention to get it right. It's been my favourite style for a decade due to drinkability and the local lack of the cask beers I grew up with which are still my goto when I get back home.
