Yes they do! I've always known it! All bitter, no flavor. Tons of hop bite and nothing to back it up! I've tried several and gave up on them because IPA's SUCK! They suck and don't even swallow!

Then I decided to give them ONE LAST CHANCE

and got Stone's IPA.

ok...

this is good.

IBUs do not a great IPA make, it's all about the late additions.

The problem isn't with the IPA's, but with the man. Some men just aren't man enough to handle IPA's. It's OK, I'm sure you all are great at fashion design and interior decorating.

Hey now... I never said I couldn't handle it. I still finished the 6-packs of the other IPA's I bought. I just didn't enjoy them. I like having some flavor to go with the bitter. They're like the hot sauce companies that put out stuff that's all heat but doesn't have the taste to back it up. I like IBU's, but I want something that has more taste than that. This one did!

Just giving you a hard time. IPA's are like any other beer, there are just so many variations. Bitter and intense, Balanced and full of aroma, etc...

Find the ones you like and duplicate those.

I have to agree here... I like a heavily hopped beer, an oz or less FWH, an oz or less at 60, and 4+ in the last 20 minutes with another oz or 2 in dry hop. og somewhere around 1.085. mmm, hoppy beer.

Edit: The OP is obviously trolling . Stone makes a good IPA, but there are others that are just as good or better. Methinks he just does not know what the fcuk he is talking about and has never tried Two Hearted Ale

Reason: had to point out troll

I have tried that and I still think that most IPA's are done very poorly comma that one in particular is done poorly. I've had some IPA's that are done very well. Big Sky and Lakefront's IPAs are both very good. You need to have that back end that you were talking about and Two Hearted doesn't have it.
