Ahh, the discovery of hops. My wife won a 12 pack of Boulevard Pale Ale (which I didn't really care for much) about 5 years ago in a "closest to the pin" contest at a disc golf tournament. For some reason, on that particular day, I fell in love with the hops.
DrRyan, you better save a Pliny for me!
My good old standard when I want a hoppy fix is Southern Tier Unearthly. Ohhh boy, delicious!
