“I met up with a group of friends late, there was one guy among them I’d never met before. One of my friends offered me an untouched beer, “it was for my wife, but it’s too hoppy for her.” I was responding, “oh, then it’s probably too hoppy for me too,” when the new guy said, “wow, girls who know the word ‘hop’! That never happens!”

I looked at the dude, picked up the glass of beer, sniffed it and said, “Citra and Columbus hops are in this. I can take a nice Northern Golding or a Fuggle hop easily, but the standard C-hops used in American IPAs don’t work for me.” Then I put the glass down and went off to order the beer I wanted while the guy’s jaw was on the ground and my friends were laughing at him.”
