I, for one, absolutely love a strong beer. While India Pale Ales aren't always the strongest, they're one of my faves, and just wanted to share a "new" brand I discovered the other week in my local government liquor store.

The Mission Springs' microbrewed IPA is pretty good, but this Phillips one truly knocks it out of the park for me.
