!  Maybe it's a sign and I should subscribe.

Do not judge it harshly.  I live 90 miles from the brewery and the difference
in what I get from my local compared to what I get at the brewery pub is

I've had a few Indian beers that were drinkable with dinner, but that I surely
wouldn't order in any other context.

As for Ovid's distaste for American IPA, I'll just have to hope he finds
himself in my neck of the woods sometime.  IPA is among my favored beers, and I
think we have a number of really great ones -- although also a lot of
over-hyped ones.  Boulder Mojo and Sierra Nevada Torpedo are excellent.  Sierra
Nevada's regular IPA is nice, but definitely overrated.  (HopDevil is often
listed as an IPA, but this is madness.  HopDevil is an ale, but other than that
it pretty well stands alone.)
