    Used to hate the taste of hops. Then about 4 summers ago i was drinking some ipa after a night of liquor binging. I was shocked how quickly i not only felt better, yet felt amazing. Then i remembered I had the same feeling drinking Leffe blond ( which i think is pretty high hop for a belgian) years earlier. The bitterness is an acquired taste, but it definitely can be acquired. For the effect definitely worth it!
