Rabbit Hole out of Justin has a couple good ones as well.
Tried a new amber last week that was tasty from Texas Ale Project called Fire Ant Funeral.
It is more of a light ale.. 6%
Soo many beers and soo little time.
Anyone ever hit GABF in Denver. if you like craft beers and ever get the opportunity it is well worth it.

Good luck in your pursuit of your favorite beer.

I'm good friends with a brew meister at a micro-brewery in CA. Asked him what the best style of beer mug/stein/glass was ... his answer ... "The bottle it came in."

Bombshell Blonde from Conroe if I buy, home brew most of the time. I drank Lone Star before it became popular and the recipe changed about 75. As mentioned before changing yeast can really make a difference as hard or soft water etc does impact flavor.

Can you taste the chocolate in craft beers containing chocolate? I'm not a big chocolate fan, but I do like some chocolate. But chocolate and beer just doesn't sound like a good mix

Had another one today, I see what mean by letting it warm up. I drank it slow and as it got closer to room temp I was easier and better to drink. I'd probably stick to one a day though.

Other than not wanting beer over 60 days old period, what specifically about makes an IPA less desireable after 60 days?

Hops is a natural preservative and the higher hop amounts in an IPA should preserve it longer than ales with less hops.
