Too bad those blue bottles are twisties. That'd be one redeeming quality...

I think this counts as a funny thing overheard about beer:

"this time we're going to see it through to the bitter end. or the lager end."

Best IPA that I've tried (for my palette) is the Stone 16th Anniversary IPA. I also liked Bear Republic Racer 5.

Not a fan of SN IPA, Torpedo, Lagunitas IPA, Stone IPA, Arrogant Bastard, etc.

I heard last night a guy say "the more it tastes like water, the better it is". I thought "buy an aquafina then u goof"...had to chuckle I guess.

My wife also can't stand IPAs, except Bell's Two-Hearted. That's the only one she likes. Might be a place to start.

+1 Your are not alone. Every time I taste a bitter beer I think of the old guy with the scrunched up face in Keystone's "Just say no to bitter-beer-face" commercials years ago.

+1 That was my gateway IPA as well. Harpoon IPA is also a very low bitterness IPA.

Two hearted is amazing when it's fresh much like most ipas. It holds up worse than most with any age past a month and a half though. I think that is why a lot of people who don't like ipas think they like two hearted.
