I knew I was qualifying myself with that one. ;) However, I also am quite fond of Guinness, Stone Coast Summer Splash Ale, Yats La Fin Du Monde, (aged filipina beer), Rolling Rock, Molson, and Left Hand Milk Stout.

Well that is pretty diverse. Besides Rolling Rock they all sound exotic or at least unique. Rolling Rock to me is just anther American Lager that is not very tasty.

When I was in college I used to make a mean Black and Tan out of Rolling Rock and Guinness.  It was great, it had the body of Guinness and the finish of Rolling Rock.  And by "great" I mean "you could drink a lot of it quickly without wincing" which is of course key for college drinking.  I called it a Miscegenation.

Yeah ... I wouldn't go so far as to say Rolling Rock is tasty or "delicious" ... for me, it's one of those "refreshing-hot-summer-day-frosted-mug-drink-quick-to-quench-your-thirst"-type beers ... only good when it's very cold and I'm very hot ... perfect for a post-pick-up game quencher.

That's how I view most lagers too. The temperature difference between me and the beer has to be around 70 degrees for it to be an enjoyable experience for me.

I'm sending my buddy a package with some of the best cuban cigars I have, as well as a few beers.  He loves hoppy beer with the highest IBUs. 

Are there any you guys suggest for the highest IBU / hoppy beer?  So far I have "Hop Stoopid" and "Dogfish IPA 120 minute".

My favorite beer that I drink when I get a chance to grab it from the only place I know that carries it is, Anchor Steam "Liberty Ale"  

If you have not had it and have a chance to pick up a 6pack it is worth it. Just read below for yourself.

 
First introduced in 1975, Liberty Ale® is brewed strictly according to traditional brewing methods, and, like all Anchor Brewing Company products, uses only natural ingredients — water, malted barley, fresh whole hops and yeast.
A special top-fermenting ale yeast is used during fermentation and is responsible for many of Liberty Ale's subtle flavors and characteristics. Carbonation is produced by an entirely natural process called "bunging," which produces champagne-like bubbles. Dry-hopping (adding fresh hops to the brew during aging), imparts a unique aroma to the ale. It is a process rarely used in this country today.

Stone Oaked Arrogant B4stard and Double B4stard (sorry for the masked "profanity" mods - the filter catches the word and I don't know any other way to give the name.  Please delete if you wish).  Breckenridge Double IPA.  DFH 90 min will be a good supplement to the hop syrup that is 120 minute.  Victory Hop Devil.  Troeg's Nugget Nectar though I think that's a spring seasonal.

TP and thanks!  I'll check some of them out.

I just can't bring myself to say no to Sam Adams. What a fantastic sellout beer.

I really enjoy Ninkasi's Total Domination IPA. Tastes hoppier than its 60 IBUs.

I've not yet tried Ninkasi's Double IPA (100 IBUs), but I just may this weekend. If I do, I'll report back.

BTW, Ninkasi was the ancient Sumerian goddess of fermentation and beer. Great name for a brewery.

When I was down in Connecticut for the holidays, we stopped in at the Willimantic Brewing Company for lunch. Cool place in an old post office building with a great selection of their own brews and other craft beers on tap.

They specialize in hoppy West Coast-style IPA's, I think. Been trying to find their beers up here in Boston but no luck.
