Liking an IPA doesn't mean you're any more manly than the next guy. It means you're an idiot for liking fermented mastadon piss. The one argument I always hear for IPAs is "yeah bro it's got like 10% alcohol bro." Ok, Belgian Trippels are high ABV, too, and they taste like God himself poured them from his finest ingredients and laced them with pure gold. And if you're looking for something that's high ABV, drink wine or liquor. You'll get trashed in half the time because you won't fill up as quickly. Take away the high ABV and all you're left with is stank ass stankness.
