    What was it that made that first run of Sucks (Santa cookie label) so damn good?!! I still love that beer but damn when I first had it it was THE BEST beer I’d had. You could smell a glass of it from ten yards away, it was out of this world.

    Just had Societe The Miser at Bagby in Oceanside. Very good. Not bitter, real tasty. They called it an imperial pale ale. Seems accurate to that style.

    Thanks, and I mostly agree and fall into that middle group with you. Younger is among my favorite few beers, but I wouldn’t wait hours on line for. Of those excellent beers you mentioned I think Hoparillo comes closest to Younger’s flavor profile and is my favorite bottled beer with Simtra.a close second. I love Dogfish 120 but it is more an entirely separate stand alone category than an ” IPA”.

    There are a number of great offerings from NYC or the surrounding areas that I thought of as I was tasting some Younger last year: Other Half All Green Everything, Peekskill Higher Standard, Barrier Daddy Warbucks. Some amazing west coast style coming from the east.

    What about Altamont’s Scarcity. You know it recently took second place behind the Younger at the Bistro’s DIPA/TIPA fest.

    The Miser is absolutely amazing! I have had it before and it is definitely one of the best triple IPAs out there. Societe is a top notch Brewery that is tucked away in Kearny Mesa. As a matter of fact I will be going there this week!

    I agree on the Simtra. I am on my second 5 gallon keg now. It is an amazing beer. I have yet to try younger.I do enjoy the elder but refuse to jump through hoops for beer.
