I am slowly but steadily getting used to hazy IPAs and enjoying them. i'm stupidly anti-trend sometimes, but i am starting to understand the style more. some day i make make one.
last one i fully enjoyed was omnipollo maz.
I know what you mean. I like both west and east coast styles. I probably drink more NEIPAs than West Coast IPAs these days simply due to availability.
My dad, on the other hand, has stopped drinking IPAs altogether since NEIPA is all there seems to be around anymore for IPA. He hates them, hates the way they look, hates their juiciness, always says it's "what the little kids want these days because it doesn't taste like beer, it tastes like juice out of their little sippy cups". I can't argue with him, he's pretty stubborn about it. So now he's all about lagers - pilsners and helles, when he can find them. Thing is, not a ton of breweries are making good examples of those either. But probably more so than west coast IPAs these days.
Sorry, not wanting to hijack the thread. That PDF has some great info in it. Definitely going to be using that for my next IPAs. I do have some Idaho 7 and Citra, so that might be where I start.
