Well finally, I wasn't going to bump it myself. Yes the Lagunitas is one of the cleanest tasting beers I have had. This brew compliments just about every food I have had with it. Hop Rod Rye is one of the best brews on the planet, complex and oh yes, chunky. Ron, turned me on to the Moylan's Double IPA. This brew is very multi-layered, with hints of chocolate, smoke, burnt malt and of course a generous smack of hops. This is not just an American IPA kicked into overdrive ala Stone's Ruination (although a favorite), Moylan's Double IPA is its own entity, and marches to its own drum. Lately with all the work on my flat, which ='s low amounts of beer dollars, I have had Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in the fridge. A great fallback, that should not be overlooked just because of its rising popularity. They have yet to skimp on the quality, which I say "so far so good." One note, Sierra Nevada does seem inconsistent from bottle to bottle. This may be because it is a bottle conditioned brew. Maybe our old friend Michael Marklund could chime in and enlighten us further. Good to see this old-guy back to life, if only for a little while huh?
