I absolutely loved the (local) IPA in the Rose and Crown in Palo Alto, 
mainly because it was an actual IPA (pale and strong/hoppy enough to 
survive shipping to India or indeed Pluto) rather than the renamed 
lightish session beers one tends to get over here (Greene King and 
Caledonian, I'm looking at you).

Meantime do an IPA which is bloody spectacular, mind you, so it's not as 
if we can't get it right when we try.
