I had a Belgian IPA last night, following you guys' suggestion. Piraat. Went well with my catfish and potato salad from Slow's. Though I don't think that's what the Belgians had in mind. I had two, which I think was too much. No hangover, but I was loopy for the next two hours. Didn't like it as much as Dogfish--it was a little sweeter, as I recall. But it was good, and it had that fullness and body that I was looking for. I'd definitely drink one again.
