I Love India Pale Ales

So as far as beers go I'm a big fan of India Pale Ales (IPA). They are high on the hops which I think gives it a really good flavor. I am currently enjoying a Lagunitas IPA. I was out at a local market that has a huge wine and beer selection and I picked it up there. While I was at the market I also picked up ingredients for bruschetta! I made that today, but I'll save the full details for What's Cookin' Wednesday, so stay tuned!


  1. I have never had the please of IPA, if it's hoppy, I'll like it. Better than the swamp water they call beer in Brazil, gotta be.


  2. Thank you! Someone finally sees the light. A lot of the time I feel outnumbered by my friends who all enjoy cheap light beer (or as I like to call it, crappy beer). IPA is my favorite too. Have you ever tried Dogfish Head? They make a 60, 90, and 120 minute IPA. They're strong, but damn tasty. I think one of my favorites has to be Harpoon though. Simple, and consistently delicious.

    mmmmmmm beer :)

  3. @Argentum - Hmm, I've never tried any Brazilian beer. I am always up for trying new things, but from your comment it sounds like I'm not missing much. Sorry to hear that the beer near you isn't that great.

    @Tom S. - Yes, I LOVE Dogfish Head! I have a cousin-in-law who is really big into beer (he even brews his own), and he got me some Dogfish Head for my birthday last year. It was awesome. I'll have to check out Harpoon. I haven't tried that one I don't think.
