I recently came across a limited release IPA from Stone that has turned out to be excellent. It's called "Enjoy by 04/20/13" with an apparent nod to those who enjoy...other things than beer. I would put this in the Pliny class--very fresh, hoppy and citrusy.

^^^ stone did another one that was enjoy by Dec 21st, 2012 (end of the mayan calendar). Sounds like they are just trying to come up with clever ways to sell their beer.

Two Hearted Ale from Bell's Brewing! I recently discovered that they distribute in Arizona, so I had a friend pick me up a case while he was down there. Great IPA! If you're in the area its worth picking up a 6 - pack or two.

And since it was mentioned several times since, I HAD to try it. I have all but given up on NB and so to hear a few folks mention this.... I am on my 3rd one. Unique. Tasty!

Applejack had it last time I was in.

Another fan of Rampant here. It's not mind-blowingly good, but it's worth getting. I'm not big on anything else from NB but Rampant might enter a regular rotation.

I managed to buy one bottle at Coal Train (they had 2 left but selling 1/customer and long gone) and I bought 4 at Cork & Bottle in Monument. I have not found any more since.

Latest Lagunitas Discovery: The Undercover Investigation Shut Down Ale
It's my favorite one thus far from a great brewery.

Wow, thanks, sounds intriguing (and better than the artificial and strangely non-perishable cookies) -- I would have missed it, as I haven't seen it locally, yet ratebeer.com tells me where to find it in Ft. Collins (287 liquors). Sweet! (And cool logo).

Tomorrow, April 15th -- the macro-micro Sam Adam's gets the nod for Patriot's Day day. Simply balanced for drinking after finishing the marathon; a session of drunkenly cheering runners and Red Sox all day; a lunch beer after sneaking the marathon feed at work; or taking the sting out of writing a check to the IRS. YMMV.
