The more hops the better for me. Oakham brew some excellent hoppy ales, Green Devil IPA is another favourite of mine. Although at 6% its probably not a session ale. Well except for BeerPig obvs.
Aye, the more hop the better as a rule.
Depends on the variety. Got a hop in the garden, smells amazing in September.
Draw the line at the ridiculously citrus hops though.
Had a Czech beer last year that was like drinking grapefruit juice.
That Sierra Nevada Torpedo is right on the limit.
Mostly on board with this. My local sesh pint, Harvey's Sussex Best, is what them experts describe as a 'hop forward' bitter; very hoppy but not remotely citrussy and it's bang on for me. That said, if I had to drink only one beer forever it would be Landlord, and that's not hoppy at all.
