Double Bastard Ale by Stone is probably the best beer I've tried in my young life. Everything that I've tried from Sierra Nevada and Lagunitas have been fantastic as well. Sorry if I'm relatively noobish about my beers compared to others on here.
I'm generally an IPA guy too, but sometimes they're just a bit heavy for me so I go for a pale ale instead. Not really a huge fan of most lagers, though I do enjoy them.
