IPA... Why Does Portland Love It So?
2 IPAs is basically dinner
Fans slightly less trouble than the other kind of hopheads
Colonialism always makes for a charming origin story
third-most hops in country, so total claim to fame
Gets people who flunked chemistry talking about pH and IBUs
Fuels many local conceptions and, starting six years later, school fundraisers
Part of unofficial Portland starter pack, with Timbers scarf and ax to destroy useless umbrella
Because screw your taste buds
Better than a bitter pill
Does not magically appear when tapping TriMet’s Hop card
This beer’s gone bad, right?
Made you forget to call Mom on her birthday
Not the official beer of the other IPA (International Polka Association)
What if hazy just means lazy?
“Fruity” versions range from car air freshener to urinal cake
May lead to honest-to-god war between Oregon and Vermont
Won’t actually produce facial hair
