I love that there's an IPA called "palate wrecker", at least they're not pulling any punches

I feel like IPA is getting the same treatment now that scotch got for decades.

I still can mostly only taste ashtray when I taste scotch but I am told that there are other flavors to be had.

I guess it tastes less like ash when you’re smoking cigars in tandem. I’ve done that a handful of times and always found it enjoyable, but I was always in great company, so disentangling the sensation from the circumstances is difficult.

Some IPAs are mildly enjoyable, but I worry that I just like high ABV beers. Belgians, MMMMmmmmmmmm

I would say that I like the average IPA better than the average Belgian, but a good Belgian will beat a good IPA.

Do you have an opinion on sours?

There's a lot of shit sours out there. But give me a good Flanders red or Gose and I'll more than happily drink it.

If you ever see an Andreson Valley Gose I recommend them. The Kimmy the Yink and The Holy Gose is probably my favorite craft beer ever. Salty and sour with citrus. Weird flavors but great for summer

I agree with bfx. There are some sours that I enjoy, but I can't ever drink more than one. Pilsners or lagers, though? Line 'em up.
