Mr. Breeze: Is this the semi-annual American beer bashing thread?
doglover: IPA, like any strongly spiced recipe, walks a razor's edge.It can be good, but so much can go wrong you have to hit the sweet spot. It's not like wine where almost nothing can go wrong.IPA has too little hops? It fails.IPA has too much hops? It fails.IPA too weak? It fails.IPA too strong? It sells, but also fails.So much can go wrong.The worst that happens with wine is you have to make non-food quality vinegar from it.
BumpInTheNight: Keith's is among my favoured mainstream beers, apparently its an IPA and I didn't even know what an IPA was until now and I've been drinking Keith's a lot longer then Hipsters and their microbrew hobbies gained any popularity./long winded way of saying: Shutup and just drink your beer, beardos
The My Little Pony Killer: Which is weird because according to yesterday's thread, IPAs and hoppy brews are
Farker Soze: Looks like everyone hates IPA now. I guess that officially makes it a mainstream beer now. Of course, you all hated IPA before it was cool to, am I right?
Farker Soze: Of course, you all hated IPA before it was cool to, am I right?
skozlaw: Farker Soze: Of course, you all hated IPA before it was cool to, am I right?Yes.And I'll continue hating it long after it becomes passe to do so. Because I just don't like it.You realize the actual problem is that IPAs got trendy for awhile and people who didn't really like them pretended otherwise, right? Not that people suddenly decided it was cool to hate them. We all hated them before, it's just that some people decided to pretend they didn't for a bit and now they're back to admitting they didn't really like IPA to begin with.I didn't like it before it was cool to drink, I didn't like it while it was cool to drink and I don't like it now that the neat factor is wearing off for goobers who didn't realize it existed until the "cool kids" made it common enough for them to notice. As an individual who just doesn't care for it, I'm hoping this means local pubs in my area won't have 2/3 of their draft list taken up by IPAs anymore.Also, Budweiser is the only beer I can't drink. I mean, not literally. I can pour it in my mouth and swallow it, but it gives me a nasty headache for some reason. Granted, I've only ever had one in my whole life so it was probably something else actually causing the headache and it was just coincidental that it happened while I was drinking the can of Budweiser but now I have that association stuck in my head and, frankly, I didn't like it enough anyway to try and get past that psychological roadblock, so I'll just keep telling myself it was the beer's fault./ less IPA, moar stout
czetie: Third Day Mark: doglover: IPA is nothing but fermented hops juice.Budweiser isn't better, per se, but it's not like IPA is good.This.Like everything else, there is good IPA and bad IPA. There is good lager and bad lager. There is even good Budweiser and bad Budweiser.The only thing that are dumb are dismissing an entire category as "not good", "shiat" or "fermented hops juice"; or arguing about matters of taste.
