As a San Diegan, I've found there's two kinds of IPA, II IPA, and III IPA's... ones i like vs one's i don't
I'm suspicous that the latter are loaded with a particular style of hops that I don't like.
Alpine Pure Hoppiness/Exponential Hoppiness, Duet
Pliny the Elder / Younger
Green Flash West Coast IPA / Imperial IPA
What I don't like:
So, looking at the clone recipes I've seen out there, like the pliny ones with Chinook, Warrior, Simcoe vs say a Stone clone with Magnum, Centennial. Guess I need to find a hop chart and see where they end up on flavor spectrums.
As most of the beer bars around here have hoppy beers everywhere, it would be nice to zone in a bit on things i'm likely to like / not like. I guess that's what tasters are for though!
Any thoughts on my tastes, or lack there of?
