Brute IPAs, Hazy IPAs, and Milk Shake anything. Tail wagging the dog, or styles in search of fads?
*grabs chair and popcorn*
I have not seen many Brut IPAs locally but the Hazy IPAs and Milkshakes are still selling briskly.
There is a graphic for that:
Sir, I respect your opinion. After all, it's yours. To answer the question, I wouldn't write off any style because they all have their supporters. Cheers!
Although I will say I don't get Brut IPA's. Every one I've had has just been a dryer, slightly more carbonated IPA.
But if people enjoy them, then I support their choices.
I can live without milkshake anything, but I like hazy IPAs if they're done well. As for Brut IPAs I'm still on the fence as I've had some good ones and some bad ones but not enough to make an overall decision on the style.
If there was one style I'd get rid of though it'd probably be black IPA. I like some of them, the ones that stray a little bit and have some chocolate and roast flavor to them, but a lot of them are just dark and leave me wondering "why?".
A second to that would be wheat wine. I've had some very good ones, but also some very boring ones. In the end I just don't think they offer enough to justify themselves versus a standard barleywine.
Meh. Why write off any styles?
To each their own, that's the beauty of craft beer, if you don't like it, don't buy it.
Maybe Unicorn Fart beers aren't for me, but a lot of people like them and that's ok.
Maybe this thread should be re-titled 'Pompous BA'ers that can kiss off'.
Of the 3 you mention, Milkshake has been the most disappointing to me.
Also, I've never had a Black IPA that didn't have some kind of roast, chocolate, coffee, licorice, etc. flavor to it, that's kind of the whole point of the style.
lol this reminded me of Corey Feldman’s character inviting everyone over in The ‘burbs.
Reminds me of 15 or so kids circling two other kids and screaming, "Fight, fight, fight!!"
I hope the bartender cut this dude off.
Well, if it's beer it belongs on this site.
I'm not even sure what a style is anymore
If you don’t like it just move on to a style you like.
The Murkbombs can piss right off.
Yea fuck variety. Give me a porter, red, amber and maybe a traditional uk ipa. Screw progress and innovation. Get me back to the 90s!
Not sure about blends, say 60% soda and 40% beer. Is there really a place for them?
I'm not sure they can, even if they'd like to.
Point to the place on the doll where the Brut IPA touched you...go ahead...no shame...we are here to support you and help the healing process along. We can get through this.
I'd say bell-bottoms or no socks with alligator loafers. Or oak-aged IPAs.
I would support your position OP if it meant that Founders would stop dicking around with their barrel aged program and supply their bourbon barreled imperial stout to the masses.
I like all styles of good tasting beer
Enjoy the variety that you have now whenever you go to a brewpub or a bottle shop
Anything with glitter
I would be against writing off any style. To be honest my tastes always change so what I dislike today I may find I really enjoy down the road. I am all for variety, it opens the door for more people to get into beer because they may find a style they like, etc.
expect more advocacy from a pooobah
I don’t like Milkshake ipas, or Black ipas for that matter. I’d like to see more BA ipas, though.
Even those styles are under siege across the pond
Are black IPA still a thing?
Don't get me started on style proliferation and the weekly threads suggesting that beer xxxxx justifies adding yet another new style. Just don't.
Never said folks can't drink what they want, even if it's ugly, bland, unimaginative, and lazily made.
OP asked for opinions, not sorry mine hurt your delicate feels.
The hazies are also starting to wear on my palate. Thank goodness there's an IPA around like Two Hearted, and other more classic IPAs.
Just take a few days off. Have some bourbon or single-malt Scotch and reset your palate. I'm back for a few beers this evening after a couple of weeks off, and I'm drinking a pale lager right now that's blowing my socks off. Bottom line: They're all good. Drink what you enjoy, and enjoy what you drink.
Me too, kinda a nice latching onto WC IPA over the Milkshake crap.
Personally, as a fan of what is essentially a overtly hopped roasty nutty dank dark beer, I'd actually love to see more of the style. The rye in the Wookie Jack might have turned some off to the style but there were other better versions out there that nailed the balance between the styles. Hater's gonna hate I guess
The OP question is more asking about individual dislikes, I didn’t read the thread to be any deeper than that.
There is a bit of irony in that Two Hearted is an unfiltered, sometimes “hazy” IPA.
You mean Radlers that have been around in the old country for years?
