There is a strange taste in beers that I've been drinking in the last week or so. I don't know how to describe it other than to say it tastes like dirt. They are all hoppy commercial beers - Rogue Brutal Bitter, Stone IPA, other IPAs, and they are beers that I've had before which never had this taste before. Why do I taste dirt? My glasses are clean and I even tried drinking them straight from the bottle. It still tastes like dirt. It is a little bit unpleasant but not bad enough to make me dump them.
I was thinking that maybe it is the food pairing. I've had a lot of pizza and pasta dinners lately. Maybe the tomatoes or spices are altering my tastes. Or maybe something else. Maybe I've consumed way too many hops and my taste buds are getting sick of them. Any other ideas?
