        Okay, I tried it. Pretty good. Makes me full.

            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.
            I'm not reading all these posts right now, but I'll join in on the trendy IPA hate.

            Don't get me wrong, I really like IPA's, but craft beers started to become a race to the top of the IBU scale, and breweries/craft beer snobs started to forget about all the other amazing wheaty and malty nuances beer can have in favor of making them as hoppy has possible. If I drink super hoppy IPA's too long, they wreck my pallet and all I can taste is bitterness.

            Right now some of my favorite beers are the Belgian Trappist ales, but holy hell are they expensive.

            • I think it is funny that the market embraces an overlooked kind of beer (IPA) and the common response is "well, I like a handful but most are crap."

              As opposed to lagers, where every single offering is great? Or ales? Or stouts? I love a stout but damn, I had a shitty oatmeal stout on the weekend, so fuck stouts.

              Anyway. IPAs are hard to like because they are so damn strong - hard to make a really good one. I do enjoy when an IPA has a strong citrus flavor -- cuts the hops and adds a dimension to the flavor that they otherwise lack. San Diego's Green Flash brewery makes a brilliant IPA called Tangerine Soul Style -- lovely.

              I hate Belgian beers because they are too fucking expensive.

                  • Is this a history lesson? IPAs haven't been overlooked in a LOOOOONG time. Maybe on Canada, OTOH there isn't a big maple mead market here, so there are trade offs.

                      I think we have different time scales.
