What exactly is attractive about an IPA other than as a dinner beer. Yeah they cleanse the pallet, but so does a glass of juice.

Some people like hoppy beers, some don't. What IPAs have you tried?

Depends on what specific IPA you're talking about??? Have you tried them all? All IPAs are not the same, but if you still just don't like this type of ale, then maybe you need to fine another type of beer that suits you. I for one love hoppy beers, IPAs being my favorite.

I dunno, there's always a place for IPAs in my heart.... so refreshing.

I think that we all have different tastes and what I love (IPAs) others might not. But others love sweet malty lagers, while I don't. The two beers I just can't get into are sours and wits. Ick to both, for me.

It's like food. I love hot spicy Thai food, but some people like Swedish meatballs. I'm just glad that there are beer styles for everybody!

As much as I've gotten a little tired of the IPA onslaught (one of the downsides - depending on who you ask - to living in PDX), I will always appreciate a nice hopsplosion. While I grow tired of over-confident beer snob guy who thinks he's smart because he talks down about non-IPA beers, I also grow a bit tired of people going "IPAS ARE GROSS AND TASTE LIKE SOAP!!!"...sorry you feel that way, others obviously do not, right?

Juice is sugary and large consumption leads to diabetes but iirc scientists have yet to find any downside to drinking beer en masse.

What is with all these bait threads the last few weeks? Seriously?

You seriously aren't comparing to consuming mass quantities of juice and causing health issues to the idea there's no health issue with massive consumption of alcohol?

Really?

Cirrhosis of the liver, please look it up.

As to the OP's original point, I agree. The IPA style hasn't ever been one I've enjoyed, I've learned that in life, make yourself happy. If that's drinking IPA's or Stouts - who cares? I drink what I like to make ME happy, couldn't give a toss what someone else thinks of my drink choice.
