So I have a confession that I need to get off my chest. Hopefully I won't be judged too harshly for this:
... (pause for dramatic effect)

...I hate india pale ales. They are bitter and horrible and nasty and, while I can drink them if I have to, they are probably in my 'bottom 3', right above rolling rock. I understand their usefulness in history (have to get beer to the British troops oppressing the Indian population), but now that we have things like refridgerated beverage trucks, I wouldn't shed a tear if this type of beer disappeared tomorrow. If I ever feel the need to an india pale ale, I'll just chew on some hop pellets and punch myself in the gut.

Am I the only one?

I absolutely hate ruination at the moment but I absolutely love Pliny the elder. 2 beers in the same category, one I hate, one I love.

Have you tried more than one IPA?

Yes, I've tried probably 10 different onces, and each one tastes like a hobo's underpants.

I used to LOVE them! The last year was all APAs and IPAs. Now I am leaning more toward the Malty side of brewing along with Belgian and Trappist Ales. I think beer tastes change over time. I'm sure this time next year I'll be swinging more toward IPA's again.

You like what you like, and brew what you want to drink, nothing wrong with not liking one style over another...I don't like wheat beers. So I don't brew them.

Some people like pilsners/lagers/etc, and there's nothing wrong with that at all. Some may even try to come up with the perfect bud clone..and if they can master it, then they really show their skill as a brewer, making one of the most demanding styles to brew.

Which begs the question, how many hobo panties have you tasted?

Too many to list. Though I must admit I prefer Northeast Hobo Underpants to most other types (Southern is too greasy, Midwest too corny, and West Coast too smoked). The northern MA is probably my hobo underpants of choice.
