My favorite style is IPA and the American style IPAs kick the ass of European style IPAs, at least IMO.
you know...i can't even think of a single IPA brewed in europe. i'm not sure if i have any frame of reference as to what a european-style IPA taste like. i understand the difference between west coast style and a regular american IPA, but what's the distinction of a european-style? i typically like to keep my ibu's under 60, so i'm not a big IPA person in general, but i'm curious.
oh and speaking of IPA's...bell's two hearted is delicious. and if i'm feeling in an uncharacteristically hoppy mood, dogfish head makes an imperal ipa that'll knock me on my ass and put a smile on my face. it's probably up around 100 ibu's though..
