Re: Beer Appreciation

Tried a beer from New Orleans this weekend. Was a beer by Abita Brewing Company called Purple Haze. Had raspberries added post filtration so had a really nice pink hue to it. A lovely easy drinking ale.

Purple haze isn't bad at all but i prefer the Abita amber. Lately I have gone all hipster and only drink IPAs.

Re: Beer Appreciation

The bottle shop I go to has a good range of Abita, including the Amber. Might try one of each.

I love a good IPA. Had Sixpoint's Global Warmer on the weekend. Big fruity aroma and was nice and easy to drink (even at 7%).

Do you have a favourite IPA?

Re: Beer Appreciation

I sure have. I prefer the scottish Punk IPA.

Most beers they produce are excellent.
Buy Punk IPA | BrewDog Beer

I also fancy some local Swedish IPAs.

Re: Beer Appreciation

I love the Punk IPA. I bought a case of it a few weeks back. All gone now lol.

Their Hardcore IPA is amazing too. If you haven't tried their Jack Hammer, do yourself a favour.

Re: Beer Appreciation

So many tried, so many want to try, impossible to list.
Just found a Bar in Pensacola, FL that has 112 beers on nitro taps.
Tried a Kentucky Bourbon Stout that was awesome. I drift toward Porters and Stouts lately, not a big fan of real "Hoppy" brews.

I like stouts, IPAs, Scotch Ales, Brown Ales...I don't discriminate :P

Was that Kentucky Bourbon Stout you tried from Goose Island? I had their Nightstalker Stout while in NYC a year or so ago. Was amazing.

Just picked an Abita special brew called "Mardi Gras Bock". Not bad.
