Iíve been lazy with my Hop Press blog (http://markdredge.hoppress.com/) recently but Iím back on it this week. Essentially itís a re-hashing of a blog (http://pencilandspoon.blogspot.com/2009/01/bitterness.html) which I wrote early last year (an important post which made me realise that beer was more than just a taste experience) with a few tweaks. Itís about how bitterness is innately a warning of poison and how this increases the enjoyment of hoppy beers.

Hereís the full post. (http://markdredge.hoppress.com/2010/05/02/dangerously-bitter/)
