This could work. Fire Skulls and Money tasted like a New England IPA to me. Plus it's only 50 IBUs, and uses all new-age hops. The hop bill is Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy and Nelson. They may have just meant that they visited a brewery on the West Coast that influenced the beer, not that it necessarily is a West Coast IPA. I completely agree in that New England IPA should at the very least be its own category. It's so far removed in flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and appearance than other IPAs. If it wasn't, brewer's all over the country wouldn't have spent the last few years copying Trillium/Tree House and slapping the word "New England" on their labels. I also think this would work. Trillium Dialed Up is considered a New England Triple. This beer has virtually nothing in common with something like Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. I also think this proposal could work. I prefer New England Metal. It's softer and more mainstream. For comparison, New England IPAs have over 7000 entries, American Imperial IPA has over 15000, and American IPA has over 36000. Granted that's not exactly fair given the amount of time the others have been being brewed. Great topic @JackHorzempa given the recent discussions on the forums. As others have stated, I think it should simply come down to what we NEED. Given it's a review website, and users read these reviews trying to see how a specific style is rated, and users are encouraged to review to style, style nomenclature is important.
