while tates differ. I am becoming concerned tha a SHOCKING # of good hoppy beers are being abused...(dumped)

I have set up a hotline.

1-866-hop virgin

I provide a free ups label and box (you pay all shipping)

"Please, give these hoppy beers a chance at a better life"

People grow these hops noobs!!! have a heart!

I know I am an ass. I just fail to care.

It's quite possible lots of those are due to poorly treated or super old bottles. I've stopped buying IPAs at my liquor store because they are always ancient. The last straw was when I picked up a bottle of Victory Hop Wallop that was 15 months past it's best by date...

Find a new liquor store. Good beer is worth a little longer of a drive.

but undrinkable?????

you could be right, but my instinct screams that people are hating the bitterness (which as a noob, I thought I hated too).

hating hop bitterness is as much a noob trait as disliking dark beer.

Add me to the list of those that dislike Abita Jockamo. It was reccomended by a friend and I thought it was aweful.

Yeah, yeah...to each his own. C'Mon now, you can't honestly tell me that it's awful. If you want something awful from Abita, drink a Purple Haze.

I like all well-executed beers. Doesn't matter what style they are, with exception of BMC, I honestly cannot drink them anymore. The worst beer I've had from a craft brewer was Southern Tier's Raspberry Wheat. I think my bottle was infected. After sitting in the fridge for 2 days, it gushed when I opened it and tasted like raspberry cough syrup. I'd be willing to give it another go however.

I just got back from the PA Rennaisance Faire, and their beers are all from the Swashbuckler Brewing Co. I had every single one of their beers, and they were all watery and far too cold (I may be coming down with a cold myself, so that may be a factor).

I liked the creme brule as long as i noted it as a desert beer... the first time i drank it it was ok the 2nd way too sweet... their java stout was real bad. I like coffee and i like beer especially a good dark one... the 2 sounded like they would go great together but the ending product did not.

Doesn't matter which liquor store I use... TN law mandates beer above 6.5% is sold in liquor stores completely separate from low gravity beer. The end result in IPAs end up getting treated like a red headed step child in this state. This is the main reason I started homebrewing.

Yeah, some of the older IPAs I've had were downright nasty. The Hop Wallop in particular was oxidized with a touch of skunk... I was only able to drink half of the bomber and dumped the rest. Life is too short to drink nasty beer.
