Tr0mBoNe: This beer tastes like Hitler.


It's called "Weedlord Boner" and has 8.8% ABV. What did you expect?

I'm sure that their security is fantastic and no bots will be permitted to vote for recipe changes.

Great.  Just what the world needs.  A jizzum and placenta triple IPA.

So it's gonna be like the Lays 'Do us a flavor' contest, but with higher stakes. Jokesters in cooperation can create a revolting finished product instead of pictures.

Even if this doesn't end in over-the-top, joke product disaster, the best case scenario for crowd-sourcing a beer recipe is still bad.

Most good beers have at most 3 to 4 items on the grain bill, and even hop-forward IPAs tend to only use at most several varieties (for example, Bell's Two Hearted uses only Centennial hops, and if I had to guess, does ~65/30/5% 2 row/pale ale/crystal 60 for the grain bill).

Simplicity is absolutely key to making good beer, else you get a muddled mess. Crowd-sourcing, even if done in earnest, is the enemy of simplicity.

If it becomes a joke, it will taste like a joke

If it is done seriously, one of two things will happen - either a tiny group of really dedicated people will end up doing 99% and it will be just like every other similar project, making the crowd sourced part entirely irrelevant, OR it will actually be a full recipe by committee. So it will taste like one of the big mass produced lowest common denominator products. To make it acceptable for a big group means you cannot make it remarkable

IPA is fkn terrible.  That's all.

Met several people with the same view.  It could be that coming from California, every goddamn craft brew is somehow an IPA.

/not a big beer drinker, typically bocks and stouts though if so

The IPA is a tired beer style. They were decent and interesting 10 years ago when they were only a part of the craft beer market. Now that they dominate the craft beer market, they're indistinguishable from the next hop-bomb out there.

They are great for a new brewery-they hide a multitude of sins that a rookie brewer makes.

Not so great for the drinker through

I don't even let my brother have input when we homebrew.

He gets to stir the mash. That's about it.

They took replies from a 16 question survey, and then had their brewers "interpret" (get rid of the shiatty ideas) the results into a beer recipe. And there's no guarantee they will use the resulting beer as anything other than a publicity-grabbing limited run.

Kudos to this brewery, for getting themselves so widely promoted!

I'm voting for smoked beer.

Because I hate smoked beer
