A local brewery just released an "east vs west" IPA pack. A Facebook group may have gone a little off the rails about names of styles.
I'm at a weird age, where I started drinking IPAS about twenty years ago, so I didn't get o.g. IPAS, but some of the second wave American interpretations. Constant new hops, new techniques, changing fads, etc, mean "IPA" is a huge category now that doesn't say much. Black nitro IPA with PNW piney hops? Golden coffee IPA with all British? Fruity, hazy NZ life saver in a glass? All of these could reasonably show up in my glass if I order "IPA." Kind of nuts.
