    Fat Tire tastes much better on draft than in a bottle, more so than any other beer I've tasted. Quite weird, actually. FT is a good beer that I could keep knocking down pint after pint in a night (as I did 10 hours ago).

    I had the opposite experience. I found the New Belgium Ranger IPA absolutely fantastic, and perhaps one of the better balanced IPAs on the market. It was far from bitter when put up against your west coast style IPAs (Stone, Green Flash, etc) and I found it nice as an alternative from the hop bombs that flood Southern California. Its more of a return to the traditional IPA before the west coast transformed them into hop bombs (not an insult, just a statement).

    I have to step up and defend Fat Tire. New Belgium found a way with it to make a pretty good amber ale. To me, most amber ales aren't worth a damn, but Fat Tire is an exception. It's popular, so what? Sierra Nevada is popular too, and especially Stone - plus these special releases of Darkness, Kate the Great, and Dark Lord which result in hundreds to thousands of people lining up for these Imperial Stouts. It's a disappointment to see Fat Tire **** on by the "advocates" because of its popularity. Not saying that is your attitude towards it, but rather the community as a whole.

    New Belgium has a nice assortment of ales and all decently priced.

    Fat Tire
    Mothership Wit
    2 Below
    La Folie
    Trippel Belgian Style Ale
    Mighty Arrow

    Sometimes I'd rather pay 7 bucks for a 6'er of the Mothership Wit or Fat Tire for the night, as opposed to just one killer RIS at $15.

    Depends on the situation, always. Fat Tire has its special spot, as much as a Black Tuesday does.

    Totally respect your opinion on this. Far be it for me to not like a beer just b/c it's popular or mass produced. I drink a lot of Tecate and Modelo Especial in the summer b/c they're damn good beers. Actually, I've got an 18 pack of Tecate in the fridge right now, in cans too(!), and b/c I'll be working in the yard today most of those are likely to be gone by about 6 pm tonight! I drink Sam Adams Oktoberfest like it's water during the season. All mass produced and available EVERYWHERE. But they all hit the spot for me when I'm drinking them. And I know they don't get the respect of a lot of beer "snobs", but who cares? I consider myself a beer snob and I drink Tecate! Go figure.

    With Fat Tire, it's really just a matter of taste for me. I've never "gotten" Fat Tire and most times I've had it I've just never found it all that appealing. And like I said, sometimes it's been quite awful. No big. There are lots of choices out there, fortunately, so it's all good. Cheers.

    PS - had a bottle of Delirium Noel that I've had in the fridge for a couple of months last night. OMG. I can't even put into words. I was floored. It was PERFECT. Absolutely perfect. What a phenomenal beer.

    same here, hot days, or when i know im gonna be drinking a crap ton, i dont give a crap, i drink some ice cold coors light. days where i wanna have 1 beer i drink whatever sounds good to have a pint or 2 to relax with be it sam adams (i prefer sam adams light), an arrogant bastard (which i had the other night), barleywine, newcastle, some of my homebrew, or whatever, gotta pick & choose your times and flavors, just picked up an old guardian stone barleywine im gonna get blitzed off of when i drink it and some more moose drool which i didnt really like at first but now that ive had a few its rather awesome

    bottled my honey pale ale today, smelled delicious. and had my 2 week in the bottle brown session ale last night... not what i was expecting but still damn good none the less

    the Ranger is not that bad. I still prefer Just Outstanding and LongHammer over Ranger, as well as a number of other IPAs.

    NB's 1551 is pretty good. but FT? not so much. IMO

    I have yet to try the Noel Delirum.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I lost interest in IPAs a long time ago, but the Just Outstanding and most of the Alpine IPAs have gotten me somewhat interested in the style again.
