    Stouts, porters, brown ales, amber, IPA, Pale ale, Hefeweizen (my homebrew is as good as the german imports - far cheaper, too), Heck I even like PBR!

    Favorite beer so far is my homebrew Chocolate stout that is... a year and a half old? I think? I forget. I'm due for another batch soon so its ready for christmas. It needs 3-4 months in bottle to really come around! 6.5% abv, drink a few and your friends will know it. My sister in law/best friend LOVES it, and shes not a beer drinker. My dad keeps it hostage in his basement (ok, hes storing it for me) and I'm actually very surprised there is any left... but hes very good about that. I think we have a 12pack and a few bottles left, out of the original 48 bottles. Not bad.

    Ok, now that I have beer on my brain, I'm going to go pour another guinness

    Such a tasty beer. Pours golden with a one finger head. The aroma is out of good lager and citrus fruits. Very appealing. The taste is a sure winner. Crisp, refreshing, even playful. The citrus is what makes this beer exceptional. Very clean tasting, a unique beer that goes well with dinner. An amazing version of a hard to brew beer.

    My Rating - 4/5

    Nothing like a good, rich, Stout. Sam Adams is a favorite of mine. Yes purists, I like Guinness too.
    Murphy's Irish: Yep, very good, very rich.

    IPA/IIPA for the most part. When cool weather gets here, I like Marzens, stouts, porters.......or single malt scotch.

    All time favorites are Pilser Urquell and Guiness Stout. Recently on a strong Belgian Abbey style kick. One large tripple or quad does me in for the night. Sometimes I want to get a good buzz on without having to drink a large amount of liquid.
    Love Chimay Reserve. Found a great Italian beer lately, can't remember the name off hand but it's a Brune.
    St Feuillian Brune on tap is amazing.

    Most USA craft beers are too hoppy, let alone the ones that outright try to be mega-hoppy.

    I prefer Alt, Strong, or Scotch ales, and have recently been sampling some lagers.

    Long Trail Double Bag. Recently enjoying Shed Mountain Ale even more. A few evenings ago, I treated myself to a Dogfish Head World Wide Stout...

    Agreed that there seems to be a competition to make the hoppiest IPA - those give me lockjaw. Problem with a thread like this is that a lot of good beers are very regional, not available everywhere. Two favorites from around here are Black Oak Pale (a balanced IPA)and Cameron's Auburn Ale.

    Well I bought a couple of pints & 6oz of IPA today, both from Seattle breweries. One is the Freemont shown and the other is Supergoose which I'm now reading is pretty hoppy.

    The only one I've tasted so far is this Freemont which I'm currently drinking with some salted Spanish peanuts. This is my 1st IPA tasted. It's pretty quality alright but I'm not convinced I like it quite as much as a plain old Sierra Nevada pale ale. Maybe it will grow on me more as I finish it. I'll probably take some to our next boxing PPV get together though as my tastes aren't necessarily always shared and one of the guys doesn't care for the Sierra Nevada.

    It does pretty much suit my taste in beer though and I'd certainly drink it again alright. Since I'm new to IPAs I couldn't compare it well to others.

    I'll taste the reputedly hoppy Supergoose tomorrow.

    I like the West Coast style IPAs (yes - it is a recognized genre). Stone Ruination, Sculpin, Lagunitas, Russian River (Pliney the Elder). I do not like Trappist ales, Texas beers or most anything in a can.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    super_goose_IPA.jpg

    Well I opened up this pint & 6oz of "Hale's Supergoose IPA" in celebration of American Garmin Sharp rider Andrew Talansky's victory in the Criterium du Dauphine today. I've even got my Garmin Sharp T shirt on even though I don't own any other Garmin Sharp product and only had to go to the dump ground today.

    Now this is really a great beer by my tastes and noticeably even tastier than the "Freemont" that I had a couple of days ago. (It should be. It cost more than a buck more, lol.) Both of these are from Seattle breweries. Goes right good with roasted salted pecans too.

    This is only my second IPA and this particular one is about as good as any other favorite beer I've had.....My kinda beer and I'll thank the OP for starting the thread and my curiosity about IPAs.

    And go Talansky !

    You Sir, shall sit with the great Philosophers of all time.

    So, what does everyone like for food with their beer? I stick with the basic stuff: Pizza, chips, cold cuts, etc. German Bologna and chips
    are a nice combo.

    Well I have a weakness for beer battered onion rings.

    Then there are some awesome pairings with stinky cheeses that should not be missed.

    if the beer is good enough, no food is necessary nor sought.

    And this. Usually with a decent cheese or cheese platter, including fruits and cured meats.

    Although sometimes I do enjoy me some beer and cookies.

    A salted pork product is usually good too. Capicola or prosciutto are always excellent choices.

    For snacks: Redskin Salted Spanish peanuts.

    For dinner: Texas no-beans Chili (which should already have some beer in it anyway)
