I said the exact same thing a couple years ago OP. I am now the complete opposite. Malty beers are boring to me.

Was at a local beer club meeting this past weekend. Lots of different beers came out - sweet and malty, to downright bitter. Can't say I had a bad beer really. Can say there are beers that I would lean towards, but everyone has their own preferences.

Try the Stone IPA.Sweet malt flavor and delicious hop goodness.
I always feel like a douche buying beer with a gargoyle on it though.

I don't even perceive the bitterness in Sierra Nevada pale ale anymore. It's like drinking water for a hop head.

+1 for balance

Yes, IPA is an inherently unbalanced style, but I gravitate towards (and brew) the more "balanced" IPAs. Then again, I like a beer that will leave me happy after one pint or seven, and anything in between.

I love hops.

Occasionally I find myself without an IPA on tap and it's like days without sun. I have profound, deep introspective sessions with my brewing self on how this happens, then vow to never let it happen again. But it does because I am weak and flawed.

I love hops, and I would marry them and have babies with them but they are elusive and won't settle down. But I'll accept this sinful life of promiscuity: it's better than no hops at all.

I had a box of newborn puppies. They didn't like hops. Poor little puppies. That was a while ago; then, they opened their eyes. They love hops now.

I've often considered retiring and wandering the country, planting hop rhizomes everywhere. I'd have newspaperboy sacks hanging from my shoulders, overflowing with prepubescent hop love. Johnny Hoppleseed.

I love hops.

I used to hate hoppy beers too until I had Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. That is the one that taught me how to savor a hoppy beer.
