American IPA, April 2 2010

Oh IPA, how I miss you.  While visiting Hollister Brewing Company in Goleta last weekend, I had several of their IPAs.  While others at the table weren't into hops as much as I, Hollister Brewing IPAs got me thinking about conjuring up some liquid hoppy goodness.  Last weekend, we toured tasting rooms in Santa Barbara wine country.  Needless to say, our palates were a wreck after tasting some 30 different wines.  For me, IPA was the cure.  Nothing like some IBUs to rebalance your palate!  More on Hollister to come.  And now for some IPA:
