August 4th is international IPA day - what's your favorite India Pale?
Mine has got to be one I tried for the first time recently: Burton Baton of Dogfish Head. Its technically a blend of English-style Old Ale and an Imperial IPA, but its awesome. It's 10% alcohol, but doesn't 'drink' like one. Dogfish Head attributes that to the oak aging that the blend sits in for a month, which helps 'mellow' the beer. Its hoppy, but not overpowering, and drinking more than 2-3 will result in 'strong beer hangover that lasts till 8 pm the following day'. Very nice beer though.
