i feel very strongly about this. For so long, IPA's have been so popular. However, breweries have gotten just too crazy with the ibu's, not to mention beer drinkers seem to be steering more toward lower abv beers, so all of these hop bombs are becoming very passé. Most ipa's are 6-8%. Most American Pale Ales are in the 5-6 range. They go down much smoother with more balance. Also have less calories. Session iPas won't be around at all in 10 years if not 5. Nothing but a gimmick. No balance. Except for Boulevard Pop Up. That is the most balanced session IPA I have ever had. What are your favorite American Pale Ales? Some of my favorites are: 4 Hands City Wide Half Acre Daisy Cutter 3 Floyds Zombie Dust Stone Pale Ale 2.0 Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Boulevard Pale Ale What other readily available ones out there are worth trying?
