Hoppy, bitter IPAs are an acquired taste. Like Scotch, Gin, or Coffee. I used to hate IPAs, but now I love them. I still enjoy stouts, brown ales, sours, etc very much... but there's a special place heart for IPAs. There's nothing like a dry, crisp, highly drinkable, fragrant, fresh, clean, citrusy IPA.

And if you stick with it & drink them long enough, you'll find that your taste buds shift into preferring more bitterness vs. a ton of sweetness all the time.

I think it's the opposite, about once a month someone starts a thread like this one stating, "I don't like IPA's." I can't recall a thread that has been started that say's "I don't like malty beers."

You forgot umami, the 5th main taste. And chocolate contains phenylethylamine, the same chemical your brain releases when you fall in love. The fat in milk along with phenylethylamine also trigger an increase in dopamine in our brain making us happy and euphoric. Thought that would be cool to share. Welcome to HBT man, glad to have ya in board.

Because some people feel the need to start threads declaring their dislike of hops. When I read those threads, I assume someone is either trying to be a beer hipster or hasn't tried a vary broad range of beers.

But have you tasted a lot of styles of IPAs?

They are wide and varried,,,try a Big Sky IPA, Deschutes Inversion, SN Torpedo, Green Flash, SA Lattitude. All taste vastly different, might find one that suits you.

Guys used to spit in their beer so others wouldn't drink it. Now we just throw in a little extra hops.

(kind of OT)
I had a buddy from New Jersey, a long time ago in the Navy that would lick the rim of his glass before he left the table so nobody would drink his beer. He did this when he got up to go dancing, use the head or buy another round.
