Must…have…hops! | Community | Beeradvocate

So here’s the deal. I’m stuck in Penang, Malaysia for the next three months. Beer here, aside from being very expensive, is either locally made trash or exorbitantly overpriced imports. And by imports I mean Budweiser and Corona. However, they do have a penchant for Belgian and German beers. There are a couple of special restaurants that have these beers. But I am an IPA guy. Specifically, west coast IPA. More specifically, anything by Bear Republic. Anyway, I was hoping those of you with more beer knowledge than me (which would be all of you) can help me determine which common, and i must stress common, style of Belgian or German beer is most like an IPA. I need my hops fix otherwise I am seriously considering a weekend trip to Singapore just for beer. Here are some beers that are locally available:Hoegaarden WhiteHoegaarden RoseeStella ArtoisLeffe BlondeLeffe BruneBelle-Vue KriekGrimbergen AmbreeKonig Ludwig WeissbierFranziskaner Weissbier DunkelLeffe RadieuseTripel KarmelietTimmermans Strawberry LambicTimmermans Framboise LambicGrimbergen BlondeGrimbergen BlancheChimay Peres Trappist (blue)Chimay Peres Trappist (red)Maredsous TripelDuvelPauwel KwakBeck’sFranziskaner Hefe-WeissbierWarsteinerKonig Ludwig WeisbierKonig Ludwig DunkelErdinger WeissbierErdinger DunkelFoster’sVictoria BitterCrown LagerLittle Creatures Pale AleLittle Creatures Bright AleKronenbourg 1664Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc…and Corona.Please throw out a few styles/breweries that can give me my hops fix.Thank you!
