      That would be redundant. IPA is awful beer.

        IPAs are an awesome style. You probably aren’t a big fan of hops eh? Although, some of the Imperial IPAs do get carry away with the hops. It becomes more of a chore to down one.

          Exactly, I have no love of the bitterness. I’ve got that gene mutation where I’m extra sensitive to bitter flavors–I can’t eat cilantro for example. Some of the ‘fancy’ lettuce types “taste like burning” to me.

        Agreed. IPAs are opposite end of the spectrum from my tastes (malty stouts). For whatever reason, I have a few friends always trying to push their “omgwt*hops” beers on me. I mean…..I’ll give any beer a try, but some of those are painful to finish.

          Those conversations always go the same for me:

          me: *drinks, grimmaces* Ahhhh, that’s smooth.
          IPA lover: You like it?
          me: No.

            Smooth as a mouthful of broken glass. đŸ˜›

            @The Egg, exactly. Do not like the hops. My sister is into IPAs and sours. I tell her they make the gums that should cover my missing wisdom teeth pucker and my jaw cramp.

            I enjoy hops (within reason), especially the citrusy ones. I can’t handle Gose’s or sours because they all taste like vomit to me (of course if i drink enough, anything tastes like vomit). I do prefer stouts and bocks though.
