What were my favorites? I really liked #2 (Deschutes Experimental Batch #4 Imperial IPA) . It was a very close battle for 2nd between #5 (Hopworks Evelyn) and #9 (Alameda Yellow Wolf, my neighborhood local brewpub favorite).
Congratulations to Deschutes' Cam O'Conner for the win and for brewing a such a tasty beer!
