The heat drove me to try a "White IPA" from Saranac.  For today, it is just the right weight, hoppy yet refreshing.  I enjoyed it.  And $1/6-pack less than Lagunitas Pale Ale! A surprise find since the store I stopped at was out of Lagunitas Pale Ale.

Tried two new local ones this week -
Smuttynose Winter Ale - not buying another 6-pack.  Pretty Things Pale Ale - OK/good.  Good if you like it HOPPY.

Post up if you have had a good one lately.

White Birch Brewing Belgian Pale Ale - Hookset NH - very nice and true to style, very drinkable

Alchemist Heady Topper - Waterbury VT - hop bomb and lives up to its hype - bought a case recently

Sixpoint Resin Double IPA - Brooklyn NY (?) - another hop bomb

If you want to check out beer ratings head to http://beeradvocate.com/lists/fame

Heady Topper is #1. I've also had #2 - Pliny The Elder. The goal now is to have them at the same time to compare!

As most know New England has great craft beer. If you're ever looking for an outta the way but worth the drive beer experience - head to the Hill Farmstead Brewery, Greensboro Bend VT. Growlers to go, some bottles, small tasting room - however they are expanding. These guys have been rated the best brewery in the world on ratebeer.com at one point!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I HAVE to try Heady Topper from what I've read.  I have 10 days off the end of this month and plan on indulging :)

If you find Heady Topper, PM me where you got it and whether they have any left! It's a hot commodity these days.

Every time I've tried to get it at The Skinny Pancake, the "Sold Out" sign is on the tap.
