Either the Ninkasi Reign, or the Mac N Jacks African Amber from TrackTown.
its pretty good
Mack N Jacks is good but you can get that just about anywhere.
I came in this thread to say the same thing. Had it on tap a week ago and shot up to the top of my list right now
With Hop in your name it only seems fitting that you are into IPAs. I tend to lean that direction myself. Bridgeport IPA and Ninkasi are currently my favorites. A suggestion for you to visit while you are up here:
Hopworks Urban Brewery
2944 SE Powell Blvd, Portland, OR 97202
Great atmosphere, selection and quality. They have a quarterly seasonal that you might like. It is a Rise Up Red Ale
From their website...
This full-bodied NW Red Ale is mahogany smooth and hopped to the rafters with locally grown Cascade and Centennial hops. Rise up and get down!
5.8% ABV 13.5 Plato 60 IBU
i'm a dark beer guy so I'll go with the Pin-up-porter from the Rogue Valley brewery and the Vanilla Infused Porter from Hop Valley.
And Double Dead Guy is even better.

Almost tried some Amnesia this past weekend. I'm gonna have to make that happen.
My sis in law works at BridgePort.
I like Hopworks but Organic beers give me headaches. It's really weird. And not hangover headaches either. LOL
Weihehstephaner is still my all time favorite . Best Heffeweisen ever IMO. Heater Allen makes some great beers if you can find them.

I've had Copacetic not Desolation. What I remember of it was it had a lighter malt then most IPAs, color not body. Is it more citrus or pine forward in the hops I'm trying to remember haha?

"White man you just starting to get the blues" - Rags and Bones, Nomeansno
+1, me too. I drink many different styles but if I had to choose a style it would be porter/stout.
Ninkasi's are amazing, Mirror Pond is a reliable standby.

Lagunitas- 'Hop Stoopid' is still my choice for an everyday drinker. It's pretty tough to beat for the price.
I've been a big fan of the hoppy IPA's for a long time but I've been developing my pallet lately and trying more and more Belgian style brews and sour beers.

If you're downtown you need to go to Bailey's Taproom. You can thank me later.
You want an interesting Belgian beer try De Struise Pannepot. Next, I gotta try their Black Albert Royal Stout, a 13%, 100 IBU monster.

Rogue's John John Dead Guy is on top for me right now. Its their normal Dead Guy aged in a Whiskey barrel. Its crazy good.
Looks like a good find.
Try Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA (Their Big Eye IPA is pretty tasty as well) - Out of San Diego
Another one that was good that I tried last weekend was El Segundo White Dog Wheat IPA - (El Segundo, CA)
Sorry one more that I have found while driving through deep Fullerton is Bootlegger's Brewery. The brewmaster is from Bend, and the owner is a cool guy. They do a Knuckle Sandwhich 2x IPA that is pretty awesome. Not sure where its being distributed as they just signed on with a major, but is a damn good IPA if you can find it.
Those sound delicious.
Right now Russian River's Supplication is probably one of my favorites. I have really grown to love the wild yeast ales. There is a really small brewery in Longbeach, Washington called Grey Parrot brewery. He does a good job utilizing the wild yeasts from the surrounding cranberry ”orchards”. It has been for or five years since I've been there but he brewed a lambic-stout that was pretty amazing.
Supplication was excellent. In fact, Russian River's sours are all great. I believe their brewmaster started as a wine maker so he has an edge up on other brewers in that department.
Gotta get my hands on some of Russian River's stuff for sure. I know there's are pub in the next city over about 45 minute drive, that has some Elder on order.
Ya Firestone Walker's brewmaster started off as a wine guy, but now knocks barrel-aged beers out of the park. Never heard a bad thing about them. Of course you guys living in Oregon and Cali are so much closer to it and I just have to imagine about it.
I thought Firestone Walker is from back east? I've only tried their IPA, which was respectable, but I've read about some of their more specialty beers that rate highly.
