But I agree, it's a fad. It's one of those things that taste horrible, yet people claim to "love it" just to seem eclectic. Just like super-hot sauces, etc. I love hot sauce, but the "Dave's Insanity" inspired sauces are just inedible.

(FYI, for an AWESOME hot sauce, http://www.susieshotsauce.com)
to each thier own, but i wouldn't say hops taste horrible. You're likely to piss off a lot of brewers with that statement. lets not forget what balances the malt out.

Yeti is one of my favorite beers. I think the hops could decrease a little bit, but overall i think its pretty well balanced, whjich is key in a beer that huge, and i'm also positive that its the best russian stout i've ever had. When you're producing a beer with taht much malt, you don't even want to think of going below 50 IBUs or youre gonna be drinking just sweet black liquid with lots of roasted notes in it.

Also, reallllllly hot hot sauce has its purpose just like really high AA hops, albeit a pretty limited purpose.

I simply found it frustrating that the over riding characteristic of the Oak Aged Yeti was hops. I was expecting more oak, and malt flavor, which I am sure is there, but it is way back behind all those hops. And it isn't bittering hops either, it is hop flavor and aroma. One can make a balanced beer with a huge amount of hops, but still have the malt come through. Just don't put so many finishing hops in it.

Again, this is simply a rant, so take it with a grain of salt. The great joy of brewing is I can make my own RIS and put whatever I want in it. The judges might hate it, but that is their problem!

Have I told you how I feel about wheat beers lately?

And then there are those fruit wheat beers! Don't even get me started with that!

Sounds like a great beer but with the wrong label.

Haha, yeah, "the Kiss", I remember that from every wall of every male dorm room in my college. Heh.

Also, re: ultra-hot pepper sauce: While I dig that you wouldn't like it at that point (because the flavors are completely subsumed under the heat), I will just say that I do enjoy it, once in a while, just like people with more guts than me enjoy, say, skydiving, or starting big bar brawls.
