Who /ipa/ master race here?

>tfw no style of beer has ever failed to satiate your palate
>tfw the only board that discusses topics interesting to you is overran by hop-hating beta cucks
>tfw live in IPA golden age, home to double-dry hopped beers, fresh hop, wet hop, experiemental hop, new hop, and noble hop IPAs

What's your favorite IPA? What IPAs have you tried recently?

WRONG. The forced meme is the chorused whining that follows anybody mentioning IPA.

There is not a single style of beer that I don't like. Hell, there aren't even any that I favor significantly less than others. Yet some of you think IPAs are "too bitter", "disgusting", and "a crime against nature".

So please explain to me how someone feels justified in disliking IPAs. The rightmost opinion is to like all beer and thus have the most expanded palate for beer.

I feel embarrassed for those of you who don't like them. It's the most successful style of craft beer, and alongside your blatant crusading against hoppy beers, you also claim to "like" beer. Despicable.

I like IPAs. I don't like all of them but as a genre I like them a lot. I've got a partially drunk box of resin in my fridge at the moment.

>>8418037
And people like you are why IPAs are mocked so mercilessly. Try having a personality so you don't need to compensate with your choice of drink.

Holy shit am I sorry that I shared topical subject matter (/ck/-Food & Cooking), instead of divulging every other interest of mine and thus meeting your standards of a "personality"

>>8418049
fuck not shit-flinging. I made this thread as a reminder that anybody who doesn't like IPAs has an underdeveloped taste for beer and therefore cannot register a valid opinion on IPAs.
>>
>>8418060
I was going to defend the guy when I started writing my response but honestly, I love a dozen different beer styles. Hate Belgians. Don't know why, they just taste disgusting to me. If I'm at a bar though and my friend orders a Belgian I don't autisticly scold them on their lack of taste, I enjoy my own beer and mind my fuckin business. fuck that guy.
>>
>>8418088

Let me remind you that I'm autistically scolding people on an anime image board, and strictly refrain from doing so in public. I'd never outwardly judge someone on their beer choice at a bar, because I know how to act in public.
>>
>>8418094
that's fair man I was a bit harsh, let me take this opportunity to say that if there's any filthy Belgian lovers in this thread they can go hurl themselves into traffic. shit teir beer go have a blue moon why don't ya.

Have to go with Southern Tier 2XIPA, for something I can get any time.

But nothing will ever compete with Beer Camp Hoppy Lager for a one time seasonal that changed my life.
>>
>>8418354

Hoppy Lager was really good, but I liked the Tropical IPA more.

There were a couple good one's in the 2016 Beer Camp variety pack, namely the session ipa and the wicked weed one.
>>
i like IIPAs. suck my dick /ck/
>>
>>8418378
Honestly, I don't know the history of, or much of the lineage of the beer camp line. I got into it at the Hoppy Lager, and the one that directly followed, then stopped there to back to IPA. But there was just something about that fucking beer, it struck me. Probably coincided with falling in love with the first woman since my ex wife, and becoming good friends with the Sierra Nevada rep, which was amazing. But nonetheless it changed me. And I ended up buying every bottle in my county, and several cases in other counties.
>>
>>8418378
fond memories of the tropical beer camp, the cvs near me mislabeled the bar code or something so it was on sale for 4.99 for a six pack. By the time they figured out their mistake me and my buddy had gone through a case of them

>>tfw no style of beer has ever failed to satiate your palate
Protip: If every single beer satiates your palate, you don't have much of a palate at all. That's like saying "I have never found a woman unattractive, my standards are so superior"
>>
Is anyone on /ck/ rich enough to enjoy sours?

>>8418472

Every style =/= every single beer.

Retard.
>>
>>8418479
It's pretty simple to make one. Just contaminate it with lacto bacillus. We try to avoid that when we homebrew, but I'm sure hipsters would pay big money for something that a normal person would dump in the compost pile.
>>
>>8417907
IPAs my favorite style. I try to pick up a build your own 6-pack 2-3 times a week. They go for $9.95 and I try to fill it with beers that cost more than that when purchased in a 6 pack. I usually have a hard time calling a "favorite" beer, but right now its Snaggletooth Bandana from Solemn Oath brewing. Before that it was Grapefruit Sculpin, which isn't nearly as gay as it sounds.

Snaggletooth is very floral and crisp, refreshing.
>pic what I have on hand now
>>
>>8418490
if you taste it and its actually good maybe, but I'm guessing the swill you accidentally infect isn't gooing to be as good as something brewed with that in mind.

IPAs aren't bad but they are not a style of beer that I can get completely hammered on. If I drink too much, it just starts feeling and tasting like there is a ball of grass in my stomach and I start to feel sick. Dark ales or stouts I can drink all fucking day no problemo
>>
Anyone find any good citrus infused IPAs? Ones where they're perfectly balanced with strong hops and not super fruity?

I'm drinkin the Grapefruit Rebel IPA from here:

Grapefruit sculpin

Che out moonraker if you're in norcal
>>
>>8418668

What would you recommend from Moonraker? Turns out the brewery is 45 minutes away from me right now.

Guess I should take a over there and to Knee Deep (which is on tap everywhere).
>>
>>8418037
i see just as much if not more hate for stouts/porters though. people don't have an axe to grind against IPAs specifically, most people just drink light domestics like budweiser so anything different like an IPA or stout or porter is less popular
>>
>>8418699
I have tried the transparent, zulu and slingjaw ipas

They have a pretty distinctive style and are all kind of similar and very good. A few east coast style ipas with really good flavor and not overwhelmingly hoppy
>>
>>8418668
>Grapefruit sculpin
yeah thats the one I like so far.
>>
>>8417907
I've never had an IPA I loved. Maybe it's an acquired taste, but they're simply not a flavor I enjoy.
I love a good belgian, or blonde, or porter, or stout; basically malt rather than hops.

Any advice on getting into hoppier beer? The hoppiest beer I've enjoyed was Anchor Steam for reference.
>>
>>8417907
The reason I hate IPA is because of the 150+ people I've talked to who would drink pure├ęd hops if it had a 12% abv.
>>
>>8418725
Literally don't. If you don't care for it, you probably won't. It's not a problem. Just enjoy what you enjoy.
>>
>>8418715

Thanks for the rec. The cans look familiar, so I'm sure they sell them around here.

I actually just read an article in the paper about how the Sac area is starting to embrace NE style IPAs, but I don't think they mentioned Moonraker.

Gonna put it on my beer run list for tomorrow for New years.
>>
>>8417907
My neighbor offers me these all the time, and while I never refuse a free beer I'm just not that into them. I've always been a stout and cider guy.
The fact that the go-to fruit for some IPAs is grapefruit (which I find disgusting) tells me this is not the booze for me.
>>
>>8418767

>the go-to fruit for some IPAs is grapefruit

wut?
>>
>>8418782
For those weird fusion shandy-style ales, I'm not talking about anything actually brewed with grapefruit.
I swear it's the only fruit I ever see mixed with IPA, I guess it just meshes well with that love for extra-bitter drink.
>>
>>8418782
He's retarded and thinks flavor notes equal a beer filled with juice squeezed from the fruit mentioned.
>>
>>8418787

Hops often have grapefruit notes, but other than Sculpin and Rebel, it's definitely not the "go-to", and fruit flavored IPAs aren't even very popular for that matter.
>>
>>8418789
No I'm actually talking about shit actually brewed with grapefruit, faggot. Which I guess I was wrong about this >>8418787, fuck it, I don't drink much of this stuff.

>>8418794
Oh, well all I ever see is shit with grapefruit in it, not an IPA guy so I have little idea what people prefer out of them. Figured it was a valid correlation considering my dislike for both the brew and the fruit.

My favorite IPA ever has to be this black ipa my local bar brews. It's called Dancing in Purgatory. But you will not see it anywhere. But other than that dogfish 120 minute ipa is perfection.

>>8418640
I like Torpedo because it is readily available locally. My new favorite from Sierra Nevada is Hop Hunter, brewed with distilled hop oil. Tastes like real beer.
If you can find the Winter variety 12 pack, Snow Whit white IPA is flippin' amazing. Made with 7 varieties of experimental dwarf hops. They don't sell it separately, sadly.

While definitely true, I actually think of IPA as being more dad-core, while younger people are more likely to be trying less normie stuff.
>>
>>8420484
Yeah at my local bar the guys who are most vocal about IPA are 50somethings.

The kids who grew up when IPA was all the rage are all into ciders, pilsners, sours, etc.

Who said anything about "primarily"? It's current year, people are allowed to drink a variety of things. Those were just some examples, it's not like there's the cider guy and the pilsner guy and they rage at each other like we have here on 4chan. This is real life.
>>
>>8420583
Well you said they were "all the rage", I'm not aware of any social circles where cider and pilsner are considered a big deal. Sure they are perfectly acceptable, but they aren't enthusing anyone
>>
>>8420586
To the best of my knowledge the only social circles that really get fixated on one beverage are the noobs who just got into "the new craft beer" and can't STFU about IPA and Imperial Stout, the Japanese scotch assholes, the vintage cocktail dickheads, and wine people.

Everyone else (who has an interest in drinks to begin with) drinks an assortment of things.

I'm ignoring the one-drink people because they are bores.
