    Pineapple UFO with Prime Rib at Bottleworks in C.T UFO-Pineapple.jpg . This place has about 20 different varieties on draft. 15 of which are IPAs They seem to have many types of Founders by the 4 and 6 pak but not on draft.

    Yeah, I watched the series. In one of the episodes Sam (founder) was currently enrolled in college and wanted to drop out to start a brewery.He was scared to tell his father this and wasn't sure how to go about it. He decides to ask his dad to go for a walk with him and he works up the courage to tell him. Any fears about what his fathers reaction might be were soon gone as his father looked around, pointed at a road sign which read- Dog Fish Head Rd and simply said " That's the name of your new brewery"

    I can tell you they are all different. I didnt care for the 60 ,kind of blah, but the 90 taste all together different. The 120 is definitely a sipper. I have a few aging ,ill be breaking them out soon as a birthday is rolling around.

    Switchback Brewing Co makes a nice unfiltered reddish amber ale. Until recently it was only locally available in draft but now is available in sixers.

    They keep one of the three on tap at all times, at one of my regular holes. I’ve tasted all three, but not being a hop head, my opinion is the brewer just wasted 1, 1.5, or 2 hours.

    Taste in beer seems to be as varied as political and religious opinions. That said im not as averse to IPAs, as i am to anything with "lite" at the end of it.

    IPAs seem to be most common on the west coast maybe because WA state is the largest hops producer. When in DC Brother Bart and I were having beers after the stove decathalon. He got a Dogfish IPA because so many people on h.com were raving about it. One sip and his face skewered up like he had just drank sour milk that had grannies socks left in it. After finding out why the face he asked me to taste it. Seemed like a decent IPA to me and I happily finished it.

    Everything from dogfish has a distinctive taste. Sometimes an acquired taste. Took me the best part of a case of 90 to acquire that taste. They are doing well in a crowded field. Expanding year over year pretty quickly. I must be in the minority though as just about every Craft beer place around here has a 75% IPA menu. ID much rather a Stout ,Bock,Porter,Dubble,Triple or Quad than an IPA.

    I never understood the idea of drinking a beer till you develop a taste for it. When i drink a beer i want to like the taste of it from the start. I have had many friends tell me to drink more ipas and i will start to like them. But why would i want to drink something i dont like when there are plenty out there that i already like?

    Budweiser, Coors Banquet, Guinness stout and my new one, Belgian Moon. It’s a Belgian style wheat ale with a hint of citrus. Go ahead and tell me it’s a girly beer but you gotta try it if you find it.

    There are many foods that become an acquired taste. I couldn't touch hot salsa or hot peppers but now love them. Same for some cheeses. Any beer can be an acquired taste if you are not used to it. That said I am not an extrem-o-phile for hopped up IPAs, but I do appreciate some of the better crafted versions.

    Its not that it was undrinkable but i wasnt crazy about it. (Dogfish90) .By the time i finished the case of 90 i found myself looking for more,which surprised me. A few IPAs (IMO) are fantastic. Although i dont care for most. Weyerbacher Double Simcoe is top shelf if you can find it and its $65-$70 a case when you do.

    Most of these things are age-factored. Kids like sweet, adults more often prefer savory. I couldn't even imagine eating Pixy Stix or Fun Dip today, but those were my favorite Halloween treats when I was 8. We all eat things today, that we wouldn't touch as kids.

    But bholler is all grown up now, and still has the good sense to walk away from IPAs. I am right there with him, on that subject.

    Someone is drinking all those IPAs ,they dominate the market. About the only thing from Founders i can find at most watering holes is "All day IPA" . Several Craft beer specialty bars locally and 75% of their selection is IPAs . Luckily a friend of mine is buying one of them and he has the same taste in beer as i do. Makes about 20 different styles of beer and only 1 of which is an IPA. Mostly Porters.Stouts .Dubbles ,Triples and Quads.
