Why bother? Just drink it the new beer until you get the full flavor. Even with a "clean palate" it takes a few sips to really experience the full flavor anyway.

Before last weekend I would have said that while I enjoy drinking IPAs I don't like them. I have had several tastings of different IPAs, and in November I brewed my own - a mildy powerful dry hopped...

Anyway.

Regarding distilled water and extract. While, using distilled water would be fine to use with extract, I wouldn't say its ideal.

While you might say that extract contains some levels...

I think in the game of semantics some terminology gets confused.

Yes, hops are used to add bitterness, but they also add flavor.

In my opinion comparing SNPA to an IPAs is not fair, because...

I think the benefit of treating your water has better side-effects than not doing it. Even for a beginner.

I made an IPA in November. In December the hop flavor/aroma was very fresh and alive. By January the flavor is still there, just not as intense.

Normally you want a carbon filter to get rid of odor, taste, and chlorine/chloramines. A non-carbon filter will just filter out sediment.

The restricted flow rate of the carbon filter is exactly...

Don't worry, I am also not a fan. I think you can get used to hope aroma flavor in beers, but if you don't like bitterness then I don't think you ever get used to it (at least in my experience).

I don't always buy that way of thinking about hot water. If the sediment was always released, then how does the sediment accumulate? It would be difficult to have both be true.

If what you are describing is the same problem I had - it was a water chemistry problem. Do a search on "water chemistry" - or just go over to the brew science forum to read up on it.
