For the Hopheads in the House

"Way back when, IPAs were loaded with hops to stand up to oceans, elephants, finicky Colonists, and spicy curries." From the label of Pyramid's Thunderhead IPA.

I love the reminder of IPA's origin, and the beer lives up to the hoppy hype.

(BTW, you won't find beers like this at any Steelers' parties this weekend; I can't believe those light lager drinkers call us pansies...)

I have lately developed a taste for a good IPA. Previously I've shyed away from IPAs for fear of all the hops - but the ones I have had lately have been tasty. I'll have to see if any local liquor stores carry this one.

And I've been toying with the idea of doing an IPA for my next homebrew batch. It'll fit well, since I am planning on experimenting with some various finings, so it'll help make a clear IPA.

LOVE the IPA. I've been missing Tupper's Hop Pocket from the Tap House in Norfolk, but the good news is that our local beer barn has sixes of Stone IPA, so I'll never be left wanting.
