Season Everything I'm a big fan of Gordon Ramsay and he always says you can't add a seasoned component to an unseasoned component and have the combination be magically seasoned. For example, if you are making chili, cook and season the ground beef and cook and season the vegetables, then combine.
This triple IPA from Stone Brewing is one of my favorites. Stone makes some of the most tantalizing IPAs on the market, you could almost say they invented the market. Their layering of hops is genius, making beer that is uniquely Stone. This beer is no exception. Heavy with citrus tones without actually adding any citrus is what makes this beer sing. Very aggressive and smooth all at the same time. Try this beer but make sure you don't have anywhere to go cause it's 10.8% alcohol.
