  • DYEBeer

    I've read a few rants lately about the popularity of IPAs. They make me laugh -- the only thing trendier than IPAs, right now, is complaining about them.

    Having said that, they have become so common that breweries are searching for that 'unique' IPA that sets them apart. The result -- Double IPAs and Super Hop IPAs -- beers to full of hops, you'd have to call them rabbits. So finding a good, interesting spin on the IPA can be a painful process.

    Let me make it easier for you: go find a bottle of Firestone's Wookey Jack. It is a black rye IPA -- no idea wtf that means, but it has a nice hoppy aftertaste that follows an almost piney feel with a strong dark ale in the mid palate.

    Do recommend.

    Is it more hipster to like IPAs, or to not?

    They're cool with me. The recent trend I can't get into is the whole pepper-in-beer thing. I like habaneros on food, but in a beer it's just cloying.

        I think complaining is the basis of hipsterism, so I'd give it the edge.

        I hope that the noble bitter becomes popular - I'd love to see what the microbreweries can do with that.

            Oh, this reminds me -- apparently, more women are drinking beer than ever before!

                  8 months sober

                  I'll down some wild turkey after I kill a wild turkey this spring. And hopefully drink more free beer with strangers I meet on my turkey road trips.

                    I like what I like, and I currently do like IPA's. That said I'll order all over the map. I actually had a pilsner back in Ohio that was legitimately good. I fucking hate lagers in general, but I'll still give them a spot in the rotation.

                      I have a cooler outside with several cans of Keystone light leftover from a Halloween party drinking game.

                        Ditto.

                        I don't mind lagers on hot dry days, though. It is a good beach beer.

                        Anything with wheat, on the other hand, I'll avoid.

                        lol

                        I don't think those are any good at this point, bro.
