I am required to always have at least 1 really dank/hoppy IPA on tap at all times. That's what keeps the SWMBO happy and me brewing more

Thought I had one, then she tried my DIPA and said it was too hoppy. Needless to say, I kicked her @$$ to the curb.

Yeah, same here. Of course, I love hoppy beers as well but I find that I am brewing a LOT of different IPA's and not much else. Some clones, some recipes, some my own creation.

I've got a hop head wife.
Gets pissed if I use any less than 5oz of hops in an ale recipe.
She would also kick me in the nuts if I ever referred to her as "SWMBO".
I moved into a new house in May and feel like I haven't brewed in about 15 years.

Mine only wants to drink IPA's. She is ok with DIPA's but prefers the regualar. If it wasn't for IPA's I'm not even sure she would like craft beer.

Yes. She wants at least 2 taps with hoppy beers at all times. The more hops the better, she's never had a beer that was too hoppy, and trust me, Ive tried.

Now if I could only get her to like sour beer, or wait...maybe its a good thing I dont have to share those with her.

I haven't found or made a hoppy enough beer for her and I've tried!!! She likes hops so much that she wants me to get hops just so she can put so in her pillow to have hoppy dreams... This is such a good problem to have.

I don't have a SWMBO, but my brew drinking partner wants "more hops" in everything I do. He's not so much into bitter IPAs, but loves super hoppy IPAs and APAs and can't get enough. He didn't use to be a hophead, but over the last few years has become one!

I make about 3 out of 4 beers to be very hops forward, and only make something not hoppy when I have enough in the pipeline to make something else. I usually make a couple of hoppy beers, followed by a brown ale, then more hoppy beers, then a cream ale, more IPAs, then a lager, etc. It makes my life much easier when there is an IPA on tap!
