Re: What makes a good IPA?

So hopping a beer happens in 3 stages: 1) Bittering 2) Flavour 3) Aroma Some hops are better for each of these different stages and many commercial breweries tend to go for a jack of all trades, master of none, approach by using the same hop for all 3.

You are correct. No forward passes after passing the line of scrimmage. The player could have done that but the game moves so quickly that if he timed it wrong then Mahomes would have found the open man easily. Cornerbacks are notoriously tackle shy and it is possible the D co-ordinator just gave th...

The value of what you have shipped will be a factor. Above a certain amount (maybe £10 or so, can't remember off the top of my head) you will be liable to pay an excise charge on it. Couriers will hold onto the item until this fee is paid.
