Maybe the hops shortage will help subby sober up.

Expect me? No, subby...EXPECT YOU!

Oh no, your boozy hop soda is going to get more expensive.

Does IPA have a lot of hops? What about Bocks?
 
2014-05-15 02:35:15 PM  
NOBODY EXPECTS THAT HOPS PRICE HAVE RISEN!
 
2014-05-15 02:40:25 PM  
I may skip. I may jump. I may even pirouette from time to time. But I do not hop.
 
2014-05-15 02:49:37 PM  
If that means more people making scotch ale instead of IPAs, I'm okay with it.

That's kinda what makes it an IPA.

I will return and "smart" you.  Have you had Belhaven from the cask?

We could always just stop adding hops to Bud/Miller/Coors products. That would fix the problem right there.
 
2014-05-15 03:18:06 PM  
Well now what will we do on Pop?
 
2014-05-15 03:22:17 PM  
Hoppy beers and overly hoppy IPAs are terrible. So, GOOD

I've had it in a few different States, from Tennessee to California.  Highly recommended if you can get it, if I remember correctly, it's the oldest recipe still made by the oldest brewery in the U.K.

/Belhaven Scottish Ale, that is.
 
2014-05-15 04:13:40 PM  
Good, maybe this will free up the shelves for something other than those nasty IPAs

Damn straight.  A metric shiatload of hops do not make beer good, just bitter.

how do they know how much my hop vines will yield next year?
LIARS!!
 
2014-05-15 04:46:15 PM  
Good. I'm sick of punch-you-in-the-face-with-hops beers. There are more flavors to beer than just hops. I want my dark malty drinks.
 
2014-05-15 04:46:18 PM  
I like all sorts of beer:  scotch ales, malty, stouts AND IPAs.

Hating on IPA's is the new hipster trend.

Considering that IPAs are beers, I just fixed your post. Not that I agree with it, but redundancy is not a good look here on fark.

This.  I know I can't be the only person on earth that thinks hops are godawful bitter-tasting.  And I know a couple of home-brewers who try everything under the sun, so hops isn't the end-all-be-all that it seems to be in beer trends right now.

\though disclaimer, one of said home-brewers planted hops a year ago at his house

They can hate it all they want, I don't care. I'm annoyed by how they think they have no choice. Maybe they need to take it up with the shiatty-ass liquor store on the counter and tell them to get on their game.

No, you can't be. They're added to beer for the bitter taste. Hops also act as a preservative, but in the days of refrigerators, it's mostly for the flavor. The bitter flavor.
 
2014-05-15 04:54:16 PM  
I have tasted a few IPA's that are good, most just taste like they aren't even trying to make it drinkable.
 
2014-05-15 04:58:50 PM  
Weren't IPAs invented to make beer survive the ocean voyage without going bad on the way to India? Hence their long shelf life, which probably is good for profits as there is less spoilage to deal with. Better profits means more interest in that market, which means more marketing of said product which means more shelf space dedicated to this shelf stable, high profit drink?

Someone usually hates on bud in every beer thread. Maybe IPAs are now the mainstream whipping boy of the fark cool-beer crowd.

/although I agree with them in this case. There are too many IPAs taking up shelf space and I've grown tired of them.

Thinking of planting some this year myself actually.

There are a lot of variety of hops these days though. They don't just add bitterness. You've probably had one that has a citrus/grapefruit taste, and that's generally coming from cascade hops, which is pretty distinctive and what a lot of people think of when you mention hops these days. But there's a lot of different types, from the more earthy, to pine-like, to more flowery. Their bitterness varies as well. The aim is usually to match the hops with the style of beer you're aiming for (hops are not just used in the extra-bitter IPAs).

A longer shelf life means you anticipate the beer not selling quickly.  How about they make beer that flies off the shelf instead?

They make that. It's called Bud.

If you want your beer to sell quickly, make it taste as close to water as possible.

The issue for me is when I go to a brew pub, and 3/4s of their beers are some variant of a pale ale, and when even the stouts and pilsners are hoppy.

I want interesting beer, not something so sour that I can hardly drink it.

Also, it seems like most North American brewers have never tasted an English IPA, they're so different.
 
2014-05-15 05:16:09 PM  
Do you see what your silly IPA war hath wrought, craft brewers?
