Not just you, me too. If I had something the brewer called a sour IPA, I would add it as a sour beer if the sourness dominated, or as an IPA if the hops were to the fore.

That’s not very practical. Once the beer gets older, it would progress from IPA to Sour ale.

This is exactly why there will always be discussion if there are no good guidelines.
I’d say, for your example, it’s meant to be sour, so it’s a sour ale. Even if it is hop-forward, it’s still a sour ale, because sour is a catch-all. Same with flavoured or fruited. As soon as there’s fruit in there, it should be a fruit beer, even if it doesn’t taste like one.

Who the fuck grouped beers with Kveik yeast with Sahti and Gotlandsdricke? Extreme ignorance right there.

this highly depends on the beer itself. I’d need to see its color and taste profile.

Why is sour ale a catch all?
Why is fruited a catch all?
Is a stout with vanilla a spiced / herb ale?

" Vanilla is the second most expensive herb /spice"

But usually there are some other ingredients which should likely control the style choice

My post was more a response to Borrestijn’s, as he stated that beer with any fruit is always fruit beer, so I wonder if beer with any spice would be a spiced beer.

Well, if we followed that path, any beer with flowers would be floral, and then we’d only have floral beers - since hops are flowers

Why would anyone let a beer with IPA in the name let it get old? Meant to be drank fresh so it would not be the brewer’s fault…
