West Coast I.P.A. from Green Flash Brewing Co., San Diego, CA
as ultra-HOPPY as anything I've ever tasted... such a fresh explosion of taste! this could be the one.
my "old" mega-hoppy favorites:
Two-Hearted Ale, Bell's Brewing-MI (can't get it on the west coast )
Hop Ottin', Anderson Valley Brewing-Mendocino,CA
IPA, Lagunitas Brewing-Sonoma,CA
IPA, Stone Brewing-San Diego,CA
Terminal Gravity- Enterprise, OR
Pelican IPA, from a small remote brewpub right on the Oregon coast at Pacific City
and of course Hammerhead ales at our local McMenamin's brewpub chain, which includes the Crystal Ballroom.
Lately I've been getting into the maltier flavor of Rogue Ales "Dead Guy"

Well, firstly I don't believe that there is a "true" Black and Tan. Seeing as how it is a beverage consisting of a lighter beer and a darker beer, it could be a variety of things. And for Harp and Guinness, for some reason in America that is a Half and Half, and the Bass/Guinness combo is referred to Black and Tan. Granted most people only really here of the Black and Tan at the bars in relation to Guinness, but that doesn't make it the "true" Black and Tan (It is good, but I don't understand why the need to put Harp into Guinness, I mean Guinness is much better without)
I lived 2 years in Ireland
The only beer I have ever seen mixed with Guiness is Harp, and that was called a Black and Tan.
I for one dont like either beer.
The beer I drank was strictly Smithwicks
