Hanson beer: MMMHop Hanson, those three brothers who brought us MMMBop back in the mid-90s have decided to make beer. Not just any beer, however, this one is called....MMMHop. Apparently it's an IPA, because you know, the craft beer world just doesn't have enough of those.

But a band or musician creating their own beverage is hardly original, as is pointed out in this LA Times blog.

The range of IPAs is truly astounding. I've been to several tastings where there was nothing but IPAs, and there was always a full spectrum of flavors and intensities presented.

There's nothing wrong with having a lot of a single type of beer, when it's as flexible and entertaining as IPA seems to be.

The one thing about Portland that makes me wonder if it's the right town for me is just how goddam nuts all the craft brewers are for IPAs. I appreciate that a lot of people like the damned things, but for me the range is from "eh..." on the good side to "I am only pretending I will finish this to be polite" on the not so good side.

I'd complain more if not for the fact that the nutso amount of beer here means that even the non-IPA choices are kind of a goddam splendor, but, jeez. It's like IPA is someone's new girlfriend that they can't shut up about. Gimme an amber, a stout, a porter, gimme a nice hefeweizen, a Belgian white, a nice lively red. Get down with your Bavarian self, put together a nice dunkel or doppelbock. Seven out of ten taps don't have to have IPA on them.

Well, I agree with you there, cortex. The joy of beer is that it comes in a wide range of types, and having the majority of your offerings in a bar be IPAs is narrowminded and silly.

BTW, the Snow Day from New Belgium is one of the better seasonals I've had recently. And it's certainly not an IPA.

And yet that is becoming the norm.
A few months ago I was in Bend, OR at the Deschutes Brewpub and found that had roughly 8-10 different IPAs available. After closer inspection, however, I realized that most of them were IPA only in name. It was as if the marketing guys were in charge of naming each special brew and figured they had better call it something familiar to the masses.

Well, I was going to (barley) whine about the editorializing against IPA's, but it looks like our mods share this bias (or at least the one piping into this thread).

(cortex, if there aren't IPA's you like, perhaps gracefully declining them when offered to you will make your life a bit better[less bitter]).

[I could just be bitter because I'm stuck with the Ontario beer selection at the moment, and don't live in the IPA rich world known as Portland].

Cortex,

There are definitely a lot of IPA's in town but I don't know of anywhere that ever has more than two on tap except for maybe some of the much larger beer bars like Horses Brass or Baileys, and even then they typically have 20 or so other offerings.

That said I like the rest of the city can't get enough of the hoppy goodness.

Oh, it's not just Portland, it's the entire Northwest beer industry.

And while nickthetourist is right and most of the brews bear only a passing resemblance to an IPA, it doesn't stop them from cranking up the IBUs whenever possible.

(and if one more beer snobs tells me "it's an acquired taste."...., but that's a entirely different rant.)

Which has me wondering if the hops shortages which have been going on for the past 5-6 years are actual shortages because of poor crops, or whether the whole hoppy beer fad is simply outstripping the supply no matter how much they grow.

The sheer volume of IPAs was one of my favorite parts about visiting Portland, actually. As a former brewer myself, I think the diversity of hop-types plays a role in this - you get much more distinctive flavor and aroma by adding different hops at different times during the brewing process, and it's just more fun to tinker with as you brew (as opposed to, say, selecting the right grain type and steeping it for x amount of time).

Also Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA is delicious, and doesn't taste like any IPA I've had before, which goes to show how the IPA label can be stuck to all manner of beers without them being super hoppy boozealicious. Not that I mind a lot of hops and a slightly elevated alcohol content, mind you, just saying that if a bar is offering more than a couple IPAs there can be a whole world of difference between them.

I think the IPA situation in Oregon is a point of local pride--Oregon State University has been breeding hops for decades, and has developed some of the best hops strains in the game. Oregon itself is the second biggest grower of hops in the country.

Sure, that's because we grow a tremendous amount of hops out here. It's true that the IPA label gets stuck on a lot of things though. I blame Red Hook dropping the "Ballard Bitter" because they were worried about selling something called a bitter.

That said, give me the bitter over the sweet any time.

And anyway, in the 90s there was a race to make the bitterest bitters, with everybody churning out varieties of Bitters, Special Bitters, Extra Special Bitters, XX Bitters, and so on, some small brewery even pitching Alimony Ale, "The Bitterest Beer on Earth".

The current fashion seems to be mostly a case of putting new names on the same bottle. Especially since almost nobody brews bitters any more and the standard British style menu will be a pale, an IPA or three, and then a variety of dark beers.

I tend towards bitterer beers, since usually when they're brewed with a strong malt profile they end up feeling syrupy in the mouth. Some brewers are good at balancing that with acidity and carbonation rather than tons of hops, but on the whole it appears to be a rarer skill than it should be.
