-- Thanks for your input. I was hoping you'd like the Fischer's. It can be hard to get around here, too, (and costly as well). I seem to remember a website for home brewers that if you give them the name of a popular beer, they can often supply you with the appropriate recipe to at least approximate it.
I have no idea of what an India Pale Ale is like. I always thought libations were a taboo in India. Gots to know though, what is your assessment of the Fischer's, Canada?
Indian Pale Ale is basicly a British Pale Ale with a lot of hops. When India was under British rule they would ship beer to the colonist but because of the long trip it would go bad. Since hops are a preservative they started adding more hops to the beer being shipped to India that's where the name India Pale Ale came from. American brewers on the west cost have taken this style to the extreme. If you like hoppy beer there are many brewers on the west cost brewing west cost IPA. My personal favorite is 21st Amendment Back In Black. I never had Fischer Amber I have to see if it is availible in the North East. Sorry to hijack your thread and turning it in to a beer thread.
Absolutely no problems here, Wiseguy... thought never even crossed my mind. In fact, I am more than happy to talk beer. And thank you for the info. I intend to check this IPA out. I believe I am probably better suited to extra hoppy beer than to the wheat beers.
