Ask The Panel?

Doley says - So you guys have me crazy on beer now. I may have the whole porter/stout/sours pretty much square. At least I've been through enough to know what I like. I'm trying to figure out IPAs. I've had many, and have dumped most after a few sips? Is that maybe an acquired taste? Any "starters" you can recommend?  Thanks much.
