I just can't enjoy IPAs. I've been told that not all are the same which I understand. But the happiness tastes piney to me. I wonder if it's like the cilantro issue?

You might like a Double Dry Hopped or a NE style IPA. More fruity than piney

I am all for trying and enjoying micro IPA's from around the country and love some that you have posted. My biggest bitch is the price. While I agree that quality trumps quantity, my quest is to find the happy medium of big taste and reasonable price which usually means breweries that are a step larger then a micro. Two that I enjoy:

Free Flow IPA, Otter Creek
Finestkind IPA, Smutty Nose

Beer fest is this coming weekend. Most likely, I will just be tasting the barleywines.

The Bourbon County barleywine is always a solid choice

Most likely, they will not be represented in Anchorage.

I'm big on IPA's. Space Dust is probably my favorite.
Elysian out of Seattle. 8.2 ABV which can really put a hurting on you if you're not paying attention.

Gumballhead by Three Floyds out of Munster, IN is also excellent.
It's a wheat ale. 5.5 ABV.

Three Floyds also makes one called Space Station Middle Finger which not only has a great name and label but is excellent IMO.
It's an APA with 6 ABV.

I have never made an IPA but want to try. However I'm a novice having only made from premade wort and such. Makes me nervous to try from scratch.
