Reports Of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
Have you heard the good word? West Coast IPAs are coming back baby, in all their clear and bitter glory. Can you believe they almost went extinct, near death by irrelevance, no thanks to that juicy haze craze cooler maze. PHEW! It’s like Sierra Nevada and Lagunitas must’ve been shaking in their boots the last 5 years, as everybody forgot about them and their millions of barrels! Oh the pendulum of time, the shifting of palate preference, and the perception of trends. Alas, let us rejoice in this new found love of yesteryear – loaded with Chinook, Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo – as this style rises from the ashes of adjuncts. And remember, we have told you nothing about IPA that is not true.
