I agree Denny and Jim... about half way. I would totally agree if I was talking about entering a competition. And I would totally not agree simply because you and everyone else knew what I was asking. So yes, it is I suppose a lazy, inaccurate but efficient way of asking my question.
Anyway, I do appreciate the input. I know now I can't go as low as I was thinking without producing a wretched beer. I think I'll try the mild route.
The bottom line is that IPAs are my favorite style but I'm getting tired of only having one or two a night. And I'm even more tired of the *%$# hangover lethargy when I drink more.
So yes, I do want it all: perfect flavor, low calories, and perfect health.
