I have said this before and I will say it again. Hops in beer are a lot like pepper in chili. Guys will cram in as much as they can just so they can watch you make a face when you try it- then they get to call you a wuss and tell you that you don't know what is good. I like my chili just hot enough to make my nose run. Any more is too much. My threshold with hops is prolly a strong APA. Any more is too much. I will smell your IPA; they smell great, but they taste horrible.

Says the man with two Hefeweizen's in the pipeline! Those should be around 10 IBU's if I'm not mistaken. Just messin with ya of course, but you see where we are coming from. Bottom line, I don't think any of us would turn down ANY beer!

To me, it all depends on the style of beer and the hops themselves, but overall, I like the hops. Most of my favorite beers have an IBU around 40 (+/- 10 or so). That would be like most American Pale Ales or mildly bitter IPA's. My favorite recipes that I have created include a big flavoring hop addition added at the last 20 minutes left in the boil using something that has a lot of citrus character like Amarillo, Cascade, or Falconer's Flight. So I guess that means I enjoy the hop flavor, but don't care much of the extreme bitterness. The aroma is great and I enjoy standing over the kettle taking in all the smell when I add hops, but I really want the flavor to come through more than anything in the final product.

Some of my other favorite beers included traditional hefes, saisons and other belgians, that have a prominent and unique yeast flavor, with low IBU, and low hop flavor. Some day soon I'll try making one of these styles with the same late addition of a citrus flavored hop. Just off the top of my head maybe something like 50-60% wheat, 2 row and munich, WLP380 for more spice and less banana, and lots of Amarillo and/or Falconer's Flight added in the last 20 minutes of boil. I'm imagining a mix of malty, spicy yeast, and citrus flavors that I think I would really enjoy.
