IPAs are the crutch of microbreweries who haven't figured out how to properly scale up production.

Hops masks all of your other mistakes. If you manage to screw that up, add even more hops and call it a "double IPA".

Maud Dib: Donnchadha:

At this point, it's because a bunch of beer hipsters have forgotten what beer should taste like and think that beer needs to taste like hops, so it continues to sell.

IPA's have been around since around 1829.
Farking hipsters.


It's worth noting that English IPAs taste absolutely nothing like American IPAs.

90 minute is a lot better than 60 minute.

Sierra Nevada's Torpedo is their best beer.

No Flying Dog? Snake Dog IPA is pretty good.

It's sad that such a dumb Weeners in what will be an awesome thread.  It's fine if IPAs aren't your thing (depends on my mood for me), but touting such bullshiat has got to be indicative of a mental disorder.

Even after microbrewers get better and scale up, a lot of their IPAs remain top sellers. A lot of beers on that list come from brewers that have really respectable Lagers or other kinds of beer. You can't tell me Sierra Nevada makes their Torpedo IPA as a "crutch" because they don't know how to scale up.


At this point, it's because a bunch of beer hipsters have forgotten what beer should taste like and think that beer needs to taste like hops, so it continues to sell. However, a new brewery will push an IPA out early because it's the easiest not to screw up.

Glad to see Bell's Two-Hearted place so high. It's my go-to IPA.
