I'm sorry, but I am so over the whole IPA-let's make beers as hoppy and bitter as we possibly can-thing. Never been a fan of overly bitter beers to begin with, although, there are a few I really like, but just like almost any trend in this country, we beat it to death. I much prefer darker, maltier beers, sour beers, or light, refreshing beers where the hops and bitterness are in balance with the rest of the flavors.
Yeah some IPA's have so many hops it is like drinking gasoline, BLECH! I make a lighter low end of the bitter scale IPA that has a citrus note frrm the Chinook hops and the sweet orange peel I use in it. 35 IBU if memory serves me right. Comes in at 5%ABV so something you can drink a couple of on a hot summer day and not get plastered.
