I raided my stock of American (New England, actually) IPAs the other day and shared them with friends Maria and Ute.
Who had never tasted anything like them, given that German mainstream beers use EXACTLY the same ingredients and – logically – taste pretty much the same.
“You can taste the hops climbing out of the glass!” said Maria
This actually TASTES of something!” said Ute “Grapefruit? Could it REALLY taste of GRAPEFRUIT?”
That was fun….
You had an appreciative audience, and you are a generous host.
