I don't want to make a whole new thread so I'll ask here:
Are IPAs a meme? They literally all taste the same. Hops raping your mouth, that's it. Sometimes they even have a nice taste up front or in the middle, but as soon as that passes or you swallow it, it is hops. Hops and hops, hops and also hops, and hops. Just completely fucking raping your mouth with hop taste/flavor. You might as well go outside and pluck some grass and chew on it because it genuinely might have a better flavor.
I bought a 4 pack of these IPAs from a brewery because I had a taste test and it actually was good. But the cans (whether from the can or poured into a glass) is fucking horrendous. The flavor up front is nice, it's citrus-y, but seconds after that is nothing but mouth destroying hop flavor. They are ALL like this, every one I have ever had is like this. Why? Why do they suck shit so bad all of the time?
It has nothing to do with the bitterness, I like bitter flavors/tastes in thing. Coffee, chocolate, whatever, the bitterness is not the problem. IPAs seriously feel like a joke played on humanity and everyone is in on it, like you trick someone into drinking an IPA because you know it tastes just so fucking horrendously bad.
