I’m with you on not liking IPA and while I can’t corroborate the gym sock story, I like the hyperbole ?. I’m sensitive to bitter flavors and everybody has different flavor receptors that affect their perception of sweet, sour, salty, bitter flavors.Amber beers are THE BEST.
And all IPA's are like an inmate's ball sweat strained through a gym sock. Fight me.
Raaaaainieeeeeerrrrrrrbeeeeerrrrrr!Living only a few miles away from Olympia (Washington), that was some good beer back in the day. However, as all the jobs have gone white collar what with the Amazons, Microsofts, Boeings, Starbucks and Googles these days the official "Seattle Briefcase" is now a long rack of Vitamin R.
If you're heading to work to your tech job, you're going in with a briefcase of Vitamin R.
