    I didn't find this year's any different than last -- I just don't much care for the beer. I like hops as much or more than the next guy but that beer has a "perfum-iness" I just can't seem to enjoy. Body = fine. Bitterness = fine. Finish = ehh, not so much.

    But something about the taste prevented it from reaching the top-shelf IPA category in my mind, and right now I cant remember what that was.
    Although you were talking about 'Hop Juice', your description above fits perfectly with my first sampling of 'Alpha King' last night.

    Felt like I'd taken first place at a Cascade hop eating contest. Heheheheh.
    Have you accepted beer as your own personal savior?

    I've been drinking Great Divide Titan IPA and Greenflash West Coast IPA lately. While neither are really "extreme" in my opinion, they're both damn tasty.

    Greenflash is great! I only just discovered it a few months ago. When did they start importing it to the east coast?

    I've not had it yet but I think Dave Alexander had a tasting with the brewers earlier this Summer at RFD.

    Pretty much all of the Moylan's IPAs, the IPA, the Double IPA and the Hopsicle have high amounts of hoppiness.

    I have been on an Imperial IPA kick for a few weeks now. I can't get enough hops. I also find that my flatulence has quite a nice hoppy aroma these days. The day after a few Hopsickles really does it.

    Anyone try Greenflash's new Imperial IPA? Quite a treat. Id really begun to get a little bored of the over the top hop sledge hammers that have been popular of late. But this one came as a pleasent surprise. Powerful and drinkable at the same time. A great fruity resiny hop treat with at least some attempt at balancing that makes it a surprisingly easy drinker. We need more like this one.
