    “This is exactly why I don’t think Cold IPA will make it. How do you easily explain that difference to a drinker at a bar in less than 10 seconds?”

    I think this is normally a good take, but in this case, it doesn’t have to be that complicated. “It’s a dry, west coast IPA” is really all you need to say. You can explain more after you fill their second glass if the customer is more curious than that.

    And given the quality of this style coming out across the board, I think brewers have found some gold here, they’re often delicious and memorable.

    The name is maybe only slightly better than IPL, at least to me, but I don’t think that’s make or break here. Brut IPAs didn’t survive because of what you said: Most were terribly made. Cold IPA is fairing far better.

    It’s hard for me not to love cold IPA’s as the first one I tried used my favorite hops: Azacca Attack! That plus my love for lagers cemented my affection for the style
