America's got a strange love affair with hops. I understand it but, it started to wear me out and I moved away from hop forward beers, in particular India Pale Ales, or IPAs. Although we can probably thank Sierra Nevada Brewing Company for really kicking off America's craft beer renaissance back in the 1980s, thanks is probably equally due to the alluring green buds that add so much character to beer.
