Let's face it. IPA's are the lifted truck of the beer world. Everybody who knows nothing about beer wants one, there are millions of them everywhere, and they are all terrible. Well, most of them. Some have enough malt in them to balance them out and make them quite palatable. But they are rare. Very rare.
It seems like all anybody cares or talks about anymore are IPA's. It's like you're "cool" and part of the "club" when you talk about hops making beer bitter. You go to the beer store, and it's all IPA's everywhere. To top it off, they aren't even good IPA's. They're all completely ****ing unbalanced, disgusting, bitter garbage, with trendy names like "Octopus Cat" and "Horse***ed Zombie" and everybody loves them. In fact most of them taste like somebody shot a cannon full of hops into Sasquatch's ***hole and then he **** them back out onto your face.
For the love of Christ, stop drinking this **** and creating a market for this festering **** juice. It is a typical hipster fad. I was at a bar and three jack-****s were talking about ****lickers IPA or whatever they were drinking. JF#1 is saying how it's good, but not as hoppy as ****slobber. They were making faces like they were drinking camel piss with each drink. I think it was called blueberry oatmeal horse**** beer. I heard the word "hoppy" at least a dozen times.
A close second to the annoyance of idiots talking about IPAs while holding their nose to drink them is your friend/relative who brews ****ty terrible beer and forces you to try it whenever you are in their presence. Hey awesome, you can buy a case of beer made by real brewers with real equipment, you can stop filling your bathtub with swill using your 100 dollar starter brewing kit. Grow up.
